So, how pvp competitive are controller players?

To the point, I have an xbox controller hooked up to my pc.

 

If I get Tera, and choose to use it, will I be...

 

A. Gimped

 

B. a God

 

C. On par, or close the rest of the player base who use M&K?

    A controller will never out perform a M&K.

    This is why  online games that support both console and PC don't put them on the same server.

    In PvE, no prob. In PvP, a skilled controller user will get roflstomped by a lower skilled m & k user.

    lol yea IT scared the crap out of me when I was younger.. good book and movie:)

    and for the question normaly controller will underperform it really depends on what you are used to.. me I like kb + mouse but I use controller for PVE with my slayer and it works fine

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    A controller is just fine for PvP if you're a melee DPS.


    Casters? Not so much.

    PvP is about competition. The controller is an inferior input mechanism. Do you not want to have every possible advantage in a competitive environment? I would think it's fine for casual PvE. For PvP mouse+keyboard all the way.

    PvE should be fine but PvP be an issue unless you play an lancer i guess, thing is there be too many skill for you to have buttons for is one thing unless your a lancer but as a lancer aiming matters a lot since our attack is linear which makes controller worse than KM because it will always aim better.
