PCB lag differences? Make or break your experience?
Hi I’m MarkMan. Today I’m posting as a representative of Mad Catz. I’m aware of stick latency & PCB differences. This should be apparent and known that not every PCB that goes into a USB controller/product is the same nor is it made from the same factory/spec. There will be a variance depending on what solution is used. It’s up to the manufacturer to determine whether or not it is acceptable for consumer use. I’ve seen test results on Teyah.net (great research btw) and videos and postings in the past. Yes, some PCBs react slower (milliseconds) vs others. Is it detrimental to gameplay? At the tested ratings, no. If it was, we would make changes to improve the product, as we’ve done throughout the life cycle of said products. Additionally, we wouldn’t see the results (from tournaments) that we’ve seen over the past 5 years if it was a game changer. To some people, especially those not closely involved in the tech talk community, this might sound like an excuse or it may sound like us dismissing the data… But quite the contrary. We could just ignore it and keep selling and making products. We don’t work that way. We work for the community as they are the reason why we continue to do cool things and provide a product and service we can be proud of. Let’s see how many MCZ sticks win the gold during EVO weekend again. Be safe ya’ll! 🙂
Does that mean that (unlike Dee Jay), you’ll climb your way out of M-tier?
Poor Dee Jay :<
1 second = 60 frames
7 ms / 0.007 second delay = 0.42 frames
Keep up the good work, Mr. Julio.
I would love to see some data on which sticks placed high in each tournament
Etokki Omni is the only one that’s associated with a top player always winning… and even he uses Madcatz sticks from time to time.
