Hi there! Some of you may remember me from another thread where I talked about this pad performance in fighting games. However, my last Raiju gave me a few problems and I stopped using it (qc motions were harder and harder each day). But...turns out my Dpad module was faulty! I decided to give this controller another try and...I am really really happy with it. However, this time I decided to use the 4 Arrow DPad instead of the 8-Way Dpad and what can I say...IT'S AWESOME! I though this Dpad would perform just like the Original Raiju or Tournament edition (they look similar), but It's WAY better (better feedback, easier to press directions, higher sensitivity). It may require ALOT of muscle memory, and the learning curve of the dpad may be higher, but it's highly rewarding! So, for me, this is the *best* mechanical DPad in the market without a doubt. The extra buttons aren't a big deal for me and I barely use them (they may be illegal in Capcom pro tour, but we dont even know about that yet, however, we can unassign these buttons sooo we should be fine). Anyway, that is my experiencie with this controller at fighting games, just wanted to let razer know that this controller is performing really well there even without the extra buttons. Good job!
