Title^ In your opinion do you believe that the tablet is easier to use cause some of my are like how it's so easy to move up from normal to insane or to hard maps :?

The only benefit tablet has over mouse is absolute positioning which stops mouse drifting. Also allows you to instantly stream 300bpm.

It is not easier, and you have both top players using mouse or tablet. It is different however, that is for sure. Finding a good mouse can be more tricky than finding a good tablet as well, but you do have very well done documents such as this one to help.

This. However, neither is really better than the other. It's just what you prefer. Either holding a pen or using a mouse. The reason why tablet is more popular is because it's more natural to hold a pen. I personally wouldn't recommend getting a tablet just for osu, nor do I think mouse is a handicap compared to tablet.

I personally found it a lot easier to use a tablet to play. It's kinda easy to tell when I got a tablet if you look at my performance graph.

i felt that certain patterns were easier with tablet than with mouse and the other way around. overall i dont think tablet is 'easier' than mouse, it just has its advantages.

i always thought playing with mouse is much more fun than playing with a tablet

I think the tablet is slightly easier because you don't have to worry about centering your mouse on the mousepad, and it's easier to move a pen back and forth compared to a mouse, but the difference isn't that big.

Tablet is not better than mouse, it is simply easier.

Holding a pen is a lot less straining on my wrist than moving around a mouse is. Let's me play for longer and save my wrists some unwanted strain.

It obviously differs between the person (hence players like cptnxn) but for me, tablet was much easier, despite even having a nice, comfortable, optical sensor mouse, decent DPI, no acceleration, good mousepad etc. Absolute positioning is just too big of an advantage.

Again tho, it's mostly preference, but most people would have an easier time playing on tablet. Then again, aim alone is less than half of the game.

Whenever you mention your graph, I must follow.


Also the tablet is much easier than the mouse. Holding it like a pen and actually being able to use your hand to dictate the cursor rather than somekind of weird mechanical box just feels so much nicer, you know?

I've never held a pen with my right hand. :(

I'll get bashed for this, but I'm gonna go ahead and say it's not. Sure, it might be easier to pick up - because we've all held numerous pens and pencils - but if you're experienced and comfortable with a mouse, it's not better, it's not worse, it's not harder and it's not any easier either. This one really boils down to preference and, most importantly, practice.

The only catch is that everyone has already practiced with a pen.

True true words.

Is not easier, It's annonying to some persons to get comfortable with tablet when they before used mouse. That's one reason why you can't become insta-better, it's like a reconstruction of your skills but with other thing.
