My boyfriend says that "If the developers added it to the game, then why wont you abuse it?"

 

He got the right sentiment.

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

If it was added to the game, use it to your every advantage.

 

That's my philosophy at least.

Yes and No.

 

Yes is because you have slight advantage compare to those that use touch screen.

 

No is because it is a method of playing the game.

 

So... Yeah, we are in the grey area, actually.

I apologies if my comments or post offends you in any way, or if my rage got a little too far. I'll try my best to make my post as non-offensive as much as possible.

If it is cheating, then why the programmers needed to develop this function…

If the game was intended to be played with a controller then no, it isn't an exploit.

And using a controller that makes you aim slower just puts you in a disadvantage

It's not a grey area in any way shape or form. If the developers themselves added support as a means of input then it's totally legit. Having an advantage due to your choice input method is fine.

 

Saying it's a grey area is like saying using mouse and keyboard on a XBox One/Series game that has support natively in the game because the developer added it is a grey area as well.

Indeed. Even though the game did supports it, chances are not many gamers who play the games can afford a game controller (maybe that's too far stretch, but for me, an XBox One X controller cost about 1/10 of my monthly salary, so it's tad expensive for me). That's where this grey area comes in. Some underprivileged gamers will not have the edge of the said game in question if they don't have a controller because part of the view will be obstructed by their hands since the control mechanism is on the screen, whereas you have the full view of the game if you use a controller which can improve your gaming experience slightly, as you don't obstruct your screen with your hands.

 

But over here, I guess it all boils down to your consciousness. I may be too over analysed the situation, but I do believe that it's not wrong to use a controller if the game supports it, but somehow, those underprivileged gamers will felt unfair (no, not that they felt being cheated, just unfair). It's like playing hide and seek, and you being more fortunate seeker has the ability to get heat vision goggles that could let you spot the hiders easily. You are technically not cheating because you, like everyone else, needs to find your targets, but with heat vision, you can spot your targets much easier.

It's not a grey area in the fuckin slightest. If the game officially supports the input medium, it's not cheating.

Slight advantage isnt cheating. Just like in cod, using better guns gives slight advantages but is it cheating? No. Just like the others said, if its in the game, its not cheating.

I don't think it's cheating. It's officially supported right? Then maybe there's an advantage but it's your choice.

Just as if someone use office mouse vs gaming mouse, do you think the one using gaming mouse with adjustable DPI cheating?

using that logic, then anyone with a more expensive "gaming" mouse, mechnical keyboard and a high refresh rate monitor, better CPU and GPU should also be considering a cheating grey area.

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

Yes indeed. That's why in real tournament, every participants will use the same PC with same configuration and same peripherals.

 

For a normal person, it's more of a blue/orange morality and depends on your conscious, but in tournament, it's definitely consider a cheat. For me, any form of advantages are considered cheating, but well, I don't complain, because I believe everyone has their rights to use whatever they want to enjoy the game. After all, ain't games are just for fun?

If controller support is provided by the devs then its not cheating. 

 

What I believe is cheating are the people who play mobile shooters on PC for example using keyboard and mouse running it on Bluestacks. For mobile gamers I think its really unfair as they are most likely to be on a touch screen while some guy is running around with keyboard and mouse. These types of players are very common where I live. Some time back there was this PUBG mobile tournament hosted by a local university and there were pictures of this one guy participating with an Asus gaming laptop lol. It went viral here and people were making fun of it on Facebook.  

 

idk if mobile game devs have done anything to counter this.

you really couldnt do anything to counter it. For example, what if someone on mobile had really precise smooth aim from years of practice and everyone accused them of cheating. how would they prove their innocence? handcam?

 

emulators tell games they're phones. do you ban the phone models being emulated from playing? theres really no perfect solution IMO.

it's not cheating but it may need balancing

 

for example: osu is a game where u need to aim and click a circle

touchscreen: have been very OP, so the developer nerfed it in ranking system

Tablet: slightly better than mouse in term of consistency (no cursor drift), but so far it's not nerfed (because... idk)

mouse: lul u broke

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Well first, what kind? There is the grip controllers that don't connect and actual controllers. If we are talking about the grips then I don't think so. The devs who make the touch controls movable have considered that in the way people play. For actual controllers, it would be the fault of the devs to not make separate lobbys. Also, BT controllers that have button overlays? I am not sure.

Why would it be cheating?

if it is a feature of the game it is not cheating.

---------------

or are you gonna say, using a original gamecube controller for smashbros ultimate is cheating as well?

 

most smash players use gamecube controllers due muscle memory and the feel of the controller.

-----------

The only controllers that would be considered cheating are the ones that have special features like Aimlock. autofire/turbo, 

overall modified controllers, that would not be tournament legal.
