You should've posted this in off-topic. Your curiosity isn't suited for a serious discussion.

Thought that since this was osu related, I put it in here. My mistake.

The worst way to play would be any way that you have never tried and never will get used to.

no, its the old version of the trackpad on laptops, pushing it in a direction makes your cursor move that way.
kind of like the analog stick on gamepads

People not knowing that makes me feel old, and I'm not.

I haven't tried using a trackpoint (which is what that little red dot is called)... osu is too much for my old Thinkpad. It's probably worse than a trackball or keyboard only (both of which I have tried... spinning is kind of fun on a trackball, with keyboard only I just use Spun Out (because I can't get anywhere near 286)). Offhand mousing wasn't too bad... spinning was the big problem (everything else I could just mirror... I could probably get used to it with practice).

Nipple mouse ftw, I always used to use that over the trackpad on laptops. Kinda miss it.

There's no "worst way to play", everything that actually moves the cursor seems to work quite well. The only problem that actually limits your ability to play is a laptop touchpad, because eventually you'll go over the edges and have to reposition it. (Doesn't really matter if you don't care about combos).

But, if we really have to pick, I'd say using a touch pad/track pad to move the cursor, and binding your hit buttons to ALT and F4.

I feel like getting one for the sole purpose of playing osu now.

tried playing osu with feet and tablet pen, being held between the toes. It was definitely, by far, the worst way to play this game. Even laptop touchpad gave better results. If anybody can even aim to click on CS3 with this you're godlike.

feetmouse superior by far. you can duct tape the mouse to your foot and set DPI to very low and it plays regular like with your hand except you can have lunch while you play because your main hand is free.

You can move the cursor with the keyboard or (shudder) speech recognition. Neither works well for osu. Part of the problem with keyboard mousing is that you need to set the jump distance so that you can get across the screen quickly enough, but for some maps you need to adjust it down otherwise you end up jumping over circles.

I haven't tried speech recognition... between the delay caused by reciting co-ordinates and the grid granularity, I can't see it as playable at all (maybe a very slow easy map with huge circles?). I'm thinking that this might be the worst way to move the cursor for osu.

..applies for this as well. You can become equally good with anything, all it needs is dedication.

There's no "worst way to play" but there may be uhhh... worst settings, or setup, so you can't play osu! well. (you can adapt to them though)

Probably one of those mice with the giant ball that you rotate on the top -_-

The worst way to play is the one you hate the most for whatever reason. You will always end up frustrated and quit.

And come back because one does not just quit.
