2022.01.25 04:45 MetalingusMike Controller vs Mouse & Keyboard - why controller is actually best for CoD
So there's always a debate between controller and mouse players. Mouse & keyboard players complain about Aim Assist being "overpowered", controller players complain that mouse & keyboard players are much faster and find it "unfair". There's truth to both of these sides.
Controller analogue sticks have inherent flaws that need to be mitigated somewhat. The inherent lack of range and inability to efficiently stop on target - a well tuned Response Curve improves practical range and Aim Assist Slowdown helps stop on target. These make using a controller for FPS games, especially at a high level, possible.
Now Aim Assist in CoD and most games that support controller input is a little "over-tuned". There's two parts to Aim Assist in CoD as an example: Slowdown as I've mentioned and another part called Rotation. It's this Rotation that many mouse & keyboard players are actually frustrated with, not Slowdown. How Rotation works is the game will aim slightly towards an enemy whilst aiming and moving, it also centres your camera up close. Being realistic, it's almost like a very mild version of Auto-Aim. Instead of acting as a deficiency mitigation like Slowdown, it's literally adding input to your experience and partially aiming for you.
It may appear to only give a subtle advantage to casual controller players, but it's very easy to abuse and take full advantage of. It works whilst moving and the faster you move and larger distance you cover in a short amount of time: the intensity of the effect increases. Which is why many good players and even average players abuse advanced movement, as not only does having cracked movement make you a harder target to kill - it also makes aiming significantly easier as the game takes a lot of control of your aim if you're executing very fast movements like a 90 degree slide cancel or a bunnyhop. Rotation shouldn't be a thing in all honesty, imo.
This isn't a post hating on controllers, I'm literally a console player myself. But it's an objective analysis to why mouse & keyboard players hate Aim Assist.
Now onto mouse & keyboard. The reason why controller players complain about them is, especially with a good mouse & keyboard player - they have a lot of advantages. Tracking is by default more difficult to the average mouse player, but it's something a good player can master. Being able to flick is inherently a large advantage to using a mouse. Not only can you easily control much higher sensitivities than controllers can allow, but once mastered you can have pinpoint precision as well. Something like performing a 180 degree flick to headshot an enemy posted behind a headglitch is much easier and faster using a mouse.
Another advantage which nobody really talks about is movement speed. Whilst controller analogue sticks provide better controller of fine movements, a keyboard provides much quicker input. They get to accelerate at 100% speed with one press, there is no time needed to move their thumbs to full stick deflection like with a controller. This makes executing advanced movement much easier on keyboard. Yes the learning curve is more difficult than with controller, but once mastered you can abuse movement much more with a keyboard than on controller.
But the thing is, the benefits of each input are very situational. Going back to Modern Warfare 2019, this game even after all this time still has more mouse & keyboard players on it (ratio wise) compared to Cold War and Vanguard. Why? Well that game benefited mouse input. The maps were cluttered with objects and angles, often highly asymmetrical map design. Footsteps are also very loud. It also didn't use a traditional Minimap. The way it was tuned promoted relying on reaction time over most other skills, which means that mouse players & keyboard that often rely purely on their flicking skills had quite a large advantage in this game compared to most controller players - especially when paired with cracked movement with a keyboard.
But the thing is, Modern Warfare 2019 doesn't play like the typical CoD game. In most CoD games, especially ones more competitively balanced like BO2 - controllers are the best input. A game such as BO2 has mostly symmetrical maps that follow a 3-Lane map design, with not too much in the way to create additional angles and clutter. That game also used a traditional Minimap. The footsteps were nowhere near as loud and Ninja was a Perk rather than a time limited Field Upgrade (Dead Silence). You can just rely on mouse flicks and listening to footsteps in that game, especially against the best players. This style of CoD game, which is what most play like, highly benefits controllers.
This is where the hidden advantage of controllers comes into play. I say "hidden" as not many people have thought about this, especially mouse & keyboard players. The real advantage to using a controller in CoD at least, isn't the Aim Assist. It's the ability to centre ones camera. Unlike using a mouse which is a 1:1 hand movement to input, amplifying all your small micro-movement and shakes, along with having to lift up to your mouse regularly - a controller has none of these characteristics. This allows for almost perfect camera centring. The ability to smoothly glide your camera through the map, almost like you're a cameraman moving a wheel based movie camera around a movie set. Games that don't promote rapid changes in camera movement benefit controls massively, especially when combined with analogue stick movement - being able to move at whatever speed you want, with fine control. You can try and mimic the centring ability that controllers have using a low sensitivity with a mouse, but it still falls short. Even CSGO Pros who use a low sensitivity, when peaking around corner have to resort to flicks a lot. Many maps in that game actually suit traditional CoD gameplay, but you just can't centre your camera as perfectly as with controller.
Even if Aim Assist was rebalanced to remove Rotation and focused only on having a well tuned Slowdown, mouse & keyboard players still wouldn't be able to compete with the best controller players - at least in traditionally designed CoD games. Heck, this is true for Halo as well. The design of that game generally promotes a heavy centring playstyle. Even with Rotation, no mouse & keyboard player would beat controller Pros. Now looking at a game like Fortnite, that has a lot of rapid camera movement - this is where mouse & keyboard shines and is primarily why most Fortnite Pros use mouse & keyboard, it's simply suited for that game.
Mouse & keyboard players still would lose to controller players in traditionally designed CoD games due to the centring advantage of controller, even if the Aim Assist was nerfed by removing Rotation.

Looking for any comprehensive solution or guide on how to connect the Deepcool Matrexx 70 Add-rgb 3f's front panel fans to my MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX II motherboard.
I was hoping to get these connected together so that the rgb lights and settings would all be synced up under one primary controller.

2022.01.25 04:45 Caseyrsterger Simlab GT1 Evo or it’s competitors?
I’m new too sim racing, but I race stock cars close to home in a very high horsepower class and I want to elevate my racing by getting into sims more.
I’m looking at a setup that doesn’t break the bank, but also can support me as I grow with the sport for years to come. What’s most important to me is getting a high quality product with lots of room for growth, but I’m limited on space at the moment so I can’t go straight to something heavy and massive.
I’ve already pre-order the Fanatec GT-DD Pro Premium bundle and now I’m deciding on a rig. I like the GT1 Evo from Simlab a lot, but I wanted to hear what else is popular for a similar price that can accomplish everything I’m looking for.
Open to suggestions, I’m excited to be joining the sport, but there is a lot to take in, any help I can get would be amazing! Thanks!

2022.01.25 04:45 AstridHamilton Best college friend wanted to create ”distance” between us.
I have been in university for almost half a year. I’m in engineering. I have made an completely ok amount of “party friends” and are satisfied there, but close study buddies I really only have 2, and the one in my class recently started acting weird.
We clicked right in the beginning. Would spend most days studying together and go to parties together. Not necessarily tied together during those things, we have our own friends, but just going to events togheter. Also worth mentioning that she has anxiety and will spend some days being home instead.
Lately, she stopped spending time with me in school, stopped reaching out, stopped going out, and wanted to study alone most days. I thought it was her anxiety and was really worried about her for roughly 7 weeks before I confronted her.
TURNS OUT she thought she and I had an “unhealthily” close relationship and wanted to “create distance” to meet others aswell, and focus on her studies by spending most days alone. I am equally still worried about her, even though she says she is fine, and deeply hurt, as what I considered a close friend secretively tried to force distance, never had that happen before.
What should I do? Do I have a right to be hurt or mad? She know I hate feeling alone more than anything, and still tried to ice me out. Also I feel I can’t trust someone like that, and that I shouldn’t want to spend time with someone who doesn’t want to spend time with me in the first place.

2022.01.25 04:45 zunrt Requesting Title for a Shoujo Manhwa, Author Was a Side Character (saintess/priestess) in the Story
What I remember is this one side character just happens to be the author (no she's not the MC that you would read in the manhwa, like AN ACTUAL SIDE CHARACTER) and she possessed the body of the saintess? with like light blue hair or was it silver. I can't remember a lot anyways I think the MC was in some dragon disaster situation and they kept it?? I don't know if it's the same one where she's seen by other ladies when she was walking the dragon in chains?? (I think she asked the dragon to act as if she had full control over it)
