Mechanical keyboards improving gaming performance is complete BS.. - Page 7

post #61 of 87
Different switches can't improve your game. They just feel nicer and in some cases allow you to press the switch faster. However, no matter what game your playing, these things won't help you very much. Some might argue that you need to be able to press keys fast in games such as starcraft, but in reality you don't need to spam a single button. The only thing 'gaming' keyboards can offer are macro buttons, but these are just a dedicated version of AutoHotKey. In short, there is nothing a mech keyboard offers that a membrane can't do. However, I think mech boards are completely worth it for the feel of the keys, but this doesn't mean they will improve your game.

I think that all 'gaming' gear is a complete fad. To me the only thing that matters is skill and comfort. As long as I'm comfortable I will play as well as I can. I own a 'gaming' mouse because I think it's the most comfortable mouse that money can buy (Qpad 5k), not because it's labelled 'gaming' for example.

Here is my battlelog link to show I am not complete garbage. http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/user/deadBrew/

My first time playing a modern FPS shooter on PC was CS 1.4 on a friends rig back in high school. He was a very skilled player(CS & Tribes 2 at the time), and these were the basic movement controls that he used. Having never used WASD, these controls feel natural to me. My left hand fingers rest in a straight line instead of a triangle, and i have 4 fingers for 4 movement controls instead of 3. I know it seems strange to most gamers, but its all I've ever known.
I'm going to try a modified version of this just for fun. tongue.gif

In my experience mechanical keyboards matter a lot more for typing comfort than gaming overall.

Having said that, they can make a difference in certain types of games. I mostly play Starcraft 2 and believe MX Brown switches make it more comfortable to quickly press keys than other mechanical switches or rubber domes. However, I'm not convinced that it matters so much for other games. When I play something like an RPG or FPS, I hardly notice the difference.

Okay but at the end of the day I really think people have this understanding of 99% of people buying mechanical keyboards , think that doing so makes them better at gaming , When in reality its probably 10% , just the same as people who buy prodcuts that they see pro players use .

I just got a blackwidow razor gaming mechanical keyboard and it helps me in games. The tactile feedback is impossible to match. I just came from a Microsoft sidewinder.
post #67 of 87
i prefer low profile chiclet keys over anything else for gaming, as they are the easiest to hit, 2mm actuation, dont move around, perfectly flat, biggest sized keys to a normal keyboard key/length measurement so it prevents miss hits, and its tactile.

SO imo chiclet wins for gaming.. it does suffer a bit for typing as u have to hit them slightly harder 60-80 actuation force or less no idea.

example games tested: stepmania, trackmania, css, ut3, sc2, dota2, LoL

Honestly, I can't stand chicklet or low-profile keyboards. They just feel really pathetic to me. I just got a Ducky Shine II in the mail yesterday, and I absolutely adore it. It's just sensational to type on, and it looks great, too. But I think I have to agree on the fact that it doesn't improve my game much, if any.

ill put it into context so you can see it how we see it....

imagine if you drift cars for fun. a membrane keyboard is like the stock e-brake. a mechanical keyboard is upgrade brake cables and high quality e-brake pads on the rear discs.

you know its going to be consistent.
you know its not going to be mushy like the stock e-brake
you know the upgraded pads are going to last longer
you know when they heat up they arent going to fade or overheat

so its not about performance, its about using a quality input device. say..... trying to paint with walmart paint and brushes vs ones designed for experienced painters. its a tool... walmart golf clubs vs some tiger woods isht
