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.

I don't know what your definition of better is.

Short answer: Yes.

Using the mouse once you hit the 3-4 star skill cap and you transition over to the tablet it will take a little time to get use to it however your skill cap with the tablet increases immensely.
Think of it this way
Mouse 4 star + : would probably take you 4 times as long to reach
Tablet 4 star+.
Meaning you would have to spend roughly 4 times as long on the mouse as you would have to on the tablet to get better after 4 stars.

Tablet ---> Hitting certain patterns becomes much easier. Control with and after spinning is better. Jumps are much easier.

And well... you get the picture. There is a reason why pros don't use mouse.

Think of baseball.
You go on field with the intention to hit a home run.
You are given a hard plastic bat. (mouse)
Ball will never sail past the walls.

Now you are given a metal water loaded bat (tablet)
It will take some time getting use to the water in the bat but with some practice you'll be hitting homeruns often.

Where did you get 4 times as long from?

Except for the pros that do right?

I don't think this analogy is an appropriate comparison

I use both (tablet/keyboard, mouse/keyboard, mouse only) and I think tablet is better for jumps, but I can do sliders better with mouse and my accuracy is better with mouse than with tablet (don't know why lol)

so I think it's all about skill and luck :roll:

You don't need a tablet to get good, but it helps. ;)
