Click gets in the way, and higher reset point due to switch design. Means your return travel is longer than your press travel, in comparison to Browns



Also surprised that no one here quoted deskthority or geekhack for keyboard recommendations.

Blue switches are designed for precision, not speed. This is why it's usually designed for typing, but can be extra useful for games that require lots of buttons to click (MOBAs, MMOs, Starcraft) to reduce chance of misclicking, rather than games that require lots of clicking on a few buttons (like osu!) where red switches excel.

Blue switches (and by extension, Green switches) are designed for typing, not gaming. The slider design will make it more difficult to be consistent in any game that requires rapid multiple hits (or even reliable double-taps).

Yeah, they don't matter for this thread because it's specifically about cherry and not switches in general.

Number one: I don't care about my accuracy. Stop making it as the most important metric for measuring skill.
Play osu!mania if you really want to flaunt your high-accuracy aspect.

Number two: Having tics is difficult while maintaining accuracy.

Number three: Most of my top plays are maps which are significantly more difficult than the maps on your top plays. These higher-difficulty-lower-accuracy top plays contribute to my lower overall accuracy.

Number four: I don't care about you at all because I'm enjoying the game.

Cheers.

You can do a better Trump impersonation than that.
