Is simple arcade mechanics better suited for eSport than more realistic mechanics?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My initial thought was about how I liked, I felt I was able to control the grenades / weapon recoil / movement better in 1.6 - it somehow felt more 'tight', and it wasnt restricting my skills..

Both Source, GO, BF3 and COD feels limiting, which I think is due to implementing more realistic mechanics, and now Im asking this question:

Is simple arcade mechanics better suited for eSport than more realistic mechanics? If so, could this be because of the keyboard and mouse being relatively simple input devices?

I feel that arcade/realistic game mechanics don't really matter in eSports, but mechanics that more require skill and strategy matter more.

And COD as an eSports title is a joke.
