Using Console Controllers bad?

So if you’ve read my other posts I do not own a fight stick. So I was wondering if your at a great disadvantage if you use the regular console controller for competitive fighting, in games such as Blaze Blue, Tekken, SF, etc.

This point has been kicked around to death. Here, read this topic which is the same exact topic.
