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.

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.

I've already posted twice, and while I didn't get bashed for my previous comment, I'm pretty sure that's gonna be the case with this one, but here goes: mouse can actually be easier than keyboard if you're used to it. You also have two extra buttons to mash, so there's also that as an added bonus

In the end, though, it all boils down to preference. Try both (if you have a tablet) and see which you like the most.

Oh yes. I have found that when I use the keyboard, I flow instead of snap. The connection between the tapping rhythm and the pointing rhythm has decreased dramatically.

We're talking about tablet vs mouse not mouse only vs keyboard. Stay on topic please.
