    Edit: Damn wrong thread.


    I love motion controls though : x
    They feel more natural to me, especially when using long range weapons.

    I guess it is a matter of personal preference though.

    After playing Splatoon over 100 hours i did play some Titanfall again and can't hit anyone anymore... motion controls are the best thing since humans making fire.

    If Splatoon 2 doesn't have motion controls i probably will go insane and siege Nintendos HQ. (or cry under a bridge...)

    Are there any known pros who use stick? I see Novel said he is rank S. I turned on the motion controls last night (currently level 22 using stick) and I got used to it quickly, but I noticed sometimes in frantic situations I couldnt get the aimer to go the right way, and I was limited by the motion controls. I guess it does take practice... but if you can be a pro using stick, I may just consider sticking with it. *pun not intended!

    Ok good to know! However, you are a roller and that does not require much motion control. Do you know of any with guns?

    BTW, as old Unreal Tournament Fangirl, am i the only one who is surprised about the discussion itself?

    Because aiming is important, sure, but movement is atleast on par with the importance of aiming, like in Quake or UT.

    You can compensate some aiming issues with good movement in splatoon, in my eyes motion controls on or off is more the icing on the cake.

    People started obsessing over aim recently because most modern games make you move extremely slow compared to UT and Quake, meaning movement isn't as important, and because most weapons are hitscan rather than projectiles now (or just fast projectiles), making dodging much less useful. I'm mostly looking at Counter Strike, where you actually have to stop moving in order to aim properly, otherwise it's RNG and praying.

    Anyways, I used to use the sticks. I switched over to motion controls a bit ago, but I still barely use them, and mostly use the joystick for aiming.

    there are plenty of people in S+ who plays with sticks and use any weapon :D . it really is a matter of preference and comfort .

    objectively the motion controls are more precise on a 1v1 fight situation, but there are more situations other than fight in the game where i find sticks movement more comfortably.
    you can be really good at sticks, try the tentatek splattershot.
    remember you have lots of options regarding the sensitivity .

    I think a lot of people tend to forget that there are options with the sensitivity.

    I'm probably one of the few people here who didn't play a lot of console shooters in the last generation, owning only a PC and Wii. I absolutely cannot get the hang of twin-stick and heavily rely on aim-assist when it is available, usually when I visit a friend to play Halo or CoD. So when the test fire came along, I played with motion controls on and have never even thought about turning them off. I enjoy Wii shooters like Red Steel 2, Metroid Prime 3 and Resident Evil 4, which was only playable to me because of the pointer aiming.
