In my opinion, I wouldn't just make touchscreen players unranked. That's just a bit cruel. Yes, touchscreen is considered unfair to a significant amount of people, but that is not reason to unrank it. Even if peppy also says so.No, something being considered unfair by a significant portion of the playerbase is a perfectly legitimate reason to unrank it. If you are still trying to advocate for touch players not being affected in any way at all, you are quite a few steps behind in the argument; at this point it is already a given that something will be done exclusively to disadvantage touch players, and the creation of this thread was not to discuss whether that should happen, but only possibly how to enact it.
I'd rather not get banned from the leaderboards just because the community despises what I use.That's... somewhat selfish of you, don't you think. If you don't care about your presence on community leaderboards, you shouldn't be concerned about playing for no pp; otherwise, you should recognize that it is the communities' and developers' right to agree on what is fair for those leaderboards, and it shouldn't be up to what you personally prefer, as only one member of a very large community, especially when most of that community disagrees with you (as you yourself claim is the case here).
But I doubt heavily that a complete solution will be found. The most simple solution would be to just separate the touchscreen from the rest of std, which doesn't sound like a good idea if you dive deeper into the touchscreen players.What exactly do you mean by this? I personally would have no issue with this, as it would return competition to level ground among each playstyle. Either way, peppy has explicitly stated that the amount of infrastructure required for this basically rules it out as a short term solution.
@Ryouku you should probably reread some of jesse1412's comments earlier in this thread, I think he does a pretty good job of explaining how accuracy really isn't at all relevant to the touchscreen issue, pp balancing should be saved for discussions elsewhere.
