https://m.twitch.tv/kephrii/clip/RoughClumsyPassionfruitSMOrcHes on twitch talking about how much aim assist there is on controllers, hes using one, so i guess he adapted?
Or did every player have to use mouse and keyboard in the tourney he won? Which tourney?
i'm not sure but it was in early-ish mid january
but it looks like he's using BOTH here LOL
if he does prefer controller tho, i don't think it's because he thinks he's outclassed/can't compete on MKB... it's probably because controller is just so easy to use that it's more reliable. pros pretty much just take the path of least resistance when concerned with safety and reliability. like it's not that he couldn't, it's that Halo and the way that it doesn't utilize the full potential of MKB, just... why risk missing a shot when you can play controller and miss no shots?
it's kind of like automatic vs manual transmissions. a lot of people like auto, especially since they are getting faster than manuals now. but it's not the same, you don't have the same control over your vehicle in an auto that you do in a manual. the autos are better at general purposing. The manual can do everything the autos can do slightly worse, but an auto can't do everything that a manual can do.
sometimes it's very niche off the wall stuff but is important for stuff like drifting or rally racing. and Halo is just on that general purposing highway driving point A to point B commute side of the analogy, that's the way i see it.
If aim assist was this strong on Overwatch and it was enabled on PC, I would not be surprised if people just started super gluing their nunchuks to their mouses and taking advantage of both peripherals because everything in that game is always flying every which way constantly LOL
