Pro gamers? i've never heard of anyone who seriously uses one. You'd be surprised how basic gear pros use, and I'd imagine most gaming leagues/compitetions have rules and regualtions against controllers, macros, and things like that.

aside from the mech keys, it had some pretty big flaws and for the price you could buy pretty much any keyboard you wanted in any switch color. or for a few bucks more get a full keyboard with macro keys like the corsair k95
I've never ( seriously ) used it in gaming, fps it sucked. I could only see it useful for mmo's or RTS's ( it would be a beast in SC2 but I sold it before I bought SC )

I don't really understand the obsession with people wanting to use what the pros use.

Obviously cuz you game better when you use pro gaming gear, noob.

 

I used to get headshots like crazy on my razer board, but then gave up gaming and went to ducky. Then tried to game on my ducky and was shooting walls and stuff. Razer made me a pro.

What about FPS such as Counter Strike or Quake?

I don't see the point for FPS's, I don't see what advantage it would give you over a traditional keyboard and mouse setup.
typical FPS controls are so engraned into most gamers by now that it would probably feel un-natural going to a different layout.

also the spacebar paddle does not work as well as a traditional spacebar as it feels more like a mouse click than a spacebar

Problem with that is the XT is full sized.

yeah, i think most hardcore mechkeyboarders would prefer nice caps and no backlighting vs back lit crap keys.

and since you have blank caps anyway, thats a dead give away that you dont care about seeing the legends anyway, so whats the point in going for a backlit?

I just like the way backlighting looks haha. I'm wondering actually if there's a better quality TKL keyboard than the QuickFire Rapid that has a detachable cable (Got a really nice cable I'd like to use without having to mod the keyboard á la Filco)

Does 170 seem good for a filco majestouch 2 tkl? It's 139.99 from ncix (only available from its canada branch) with 30 or so dollar shipping.
