this is exactly what made me drag for the rest of my tablet life. I should start hovering again. :(

I have a really hard time getting use to tablets. I have one, but I always use my wireless mouse for OSU and I suck at tablet play. Yet it's suppose to be easier? o.O

Keep using the tablet until you get used to it. Tablet isn't necessarily "easier" than mouse as much as it's more consistent due to absolute positioning.

Start dragging? Since today. I'm still dragging, but I probably shouldn't.

I meant how long did your tablet last with dragging xD

Generally I don't think dragging is much of problem for your tablet as long as you don't press unhumanly hard on the tablet. But in general, hovering is often time better, at least in my opinion, because you are able to get a sort of "flow movement" more easily which can be really helpful on streams and other patterns (as long as you get used to moving to different points on the tablet. It was awkward at first since it was hard to stop at specific points without the friction I get from dragging, but I got used to it). The only thing that will for sure be greatly decreased is the life of pen nib, which is easily replaceable.

also hovering masterrace

I drag, and it feels really light so i dont mind it.

I drag, but i put an overhead sheet (clear plastic the size of a piece of paper) over the surface of my tablet. It is pretty smooth, and my nib has shown no more wear after I did that.

My tablet didn't die from dragging(yet), but it sure is visible that I drag.




Dragging is really handy for me as hovering messes up my aim, but I notice that my aim is pretty bad.

I use a ipad cover for mine. It feels a lot better compared to when you go without anything.

Mine always appears where my tablet area is, kinda.
When I use full area it's somewhere near the middle, but with small area in the corner it creates some sort of ear shape on the black area, I have it on my previous tablet.

That's a good idea getting the clear covers. I know the normal tablet surface eats away at the nib and makes it form flat spots that cause inconsistencies, but did not know that a clear sheet would reduce wear. I might have to give it a try.

Keep playing and you will notice that the cursor being stuck getting less and less.....
Im trying to play pure keyboard sometimes and i know that feel completely

Or you could choose to kill your pen nib's life by choosing to tap with the pen itself as a mouse click (My main playstyle)

Dragging won't necessarily affect your aim negatively. There are several pros who drag and their aim is just fine, namely GensokyoAkuma, Mythol (actually not entirely sure) and Remilia-Scartet.

If you really can't get used to hovering then dragging is always an option. Some people just can't hover (I for one can't).

I've been dragging since the very first day I got my tablet (about a year by now) and I don't really notice much wear aside of the famous black spot. Don't think it'll day any time soon.

Thanks for feedback guys, I'm doing better at hovering now so I guess its about getting used to it
