Tablet is hell

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.

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.

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.

But I did get insta-better once I had a tablet

Yes, absolutely. After getting my osu!™ Tablet I was able to stream 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 ... = -1/12 BPM and was able to do all of the all of the jumps in Big White and Stay Hetero Horse Girl. Thanks osu!™!!!

Tablet pen is physically lighter than a mouse with a good sensor. More hand speed and stamina.

I never used a tablet so I can't really tell, but one problem with mouse (atleast for me) it can be sometimes inconsistent which is a bad thing in osu

If your mouse is inconsistent, it is either a shit mouse or it is being used on a shit surface. If you have a mousepad, try to keep it clean too

Increase mouse dpi -> less movements -> more speed -> more stamina.

I'm aware that dpi doesn't work like that but that's just to show that there is no contra in having a peripheral with greater mass, mouse in this case. You just sacrifice stamina - though that should never be a problem anyway - for control.

LMAO, best post in this thread

Still have to overcome static friction :^)

That's a good point, actually. Back when I played with mouse I always deemed long jumps disproportionally hard, while short jumps were just kinda... there, and really easy to hit.
With the tablet pen I can barely even snap to short fast ones because of the lacking friction, so I like long-ish jumps the most. My impression was that with switching to tablet I got inconsistent at snapping on short jumps and sliders but got more consistent at everything else.

Might just be me improving skills at a different pace from earlier, though.

Tablet is easier than mouse to get used to.
But mouse is quite fun to play with once in a while, I have to admit.
