@Greg said in Final Fantasy XIV Online:
"For FF14 there is no optimal or suboptimal to the input method as it contextually matters to the game."
A false statement based on subjectivity rather than the actual fact that more actions must be performed on controller to achieve the same result. In terms of clearance, if a player is skilled/fast enough, the same result of victory, if victory is what is sought, may be achieved.
It's based on people that I've talked to that do world prog. And yes subjectivity plays into it cause that's the whole fucking point. I'm accounting for the subjective experience of people trying to go into this game and flatout telling with pretty good backing that it won't matter on what input method they choose.
Your whole insisting on the optimal as if people were machines and they should make the only objective choice disregarding their own preference is beyond silly dude. Subjectivity matters for how you will enjoy the game is the entire fucking point Subjectivity matters for how comfortable you will play. No amount of you preaching this theoretical gain is gonna make people like Hako be actually faster in reality playing on kbm. People aren't blank slates that work like machines(and I can't believe this has to be stated), your personal subjective comfort for whatever input method you like will trump whatever theoretical gain there could be in reality.
And no challenge in this game is hard enough to pressure you into any certain input method, because the design of the game 100% supports both.
God I really can't believe what you're trying to argue here. I hope you're just like having a internet argument moment or something but it's really silly.
Tbf though I'm stupid too for continuing this given the info is now all open and I think people know enough now to make an informed choice by themselves.
