My main concern is the NKRO and precision that the mechs bring to my games and my workload when typing. I type so much slower on a dome than I do my cherry reds with dampers.
You have mentioned double tapping twice in this thread and again in the other keyboard thread. Its not the only benefit Im sure the OP is aware of.
As you have finally mentioned what other games use double tap I am now aware other games besides the UT and Quake series use double tap for something.
I'm not trying to argue with the following but just want to say that while the narrow scope of my comment was about dodging and movement, the basis of what was meant is the use of double tapping whether dodging, or doing something else in a game. That can simply be extracted if the person knows the game they play incorporates that, which would further facilitate a reason to look for a mechanical gaming keyboard. And yes in the other post the OP mentioned "Well I mostly play FPSs like battlefield and CoD" IIRC I don't remember double tapping for anything in BF: Bad Company, or COD 4, or COD:WAW. So without the OP mentioning what games or reason they want a mechanical keyboard for, the difference between 30-40 $ for a keyboard vs 100$ is enough to say 'Hey hold on, what are you buying a mechanical gaming keyboard for?" Or something to that effect. I choose to get a gaming keyboard because the game I was already playing used double tap for movement and dodging. That is the main criteria I look for when people post about buying a gaming keyboard. While I am now using both the Black and Red Cherry MX boards for both of my machines and they are pleasurable to type on it wasn't the main priority when it came down to weighing my decision on buying one or not.
