It might not be a bad idea because this would mean that you'll always have complete peace of mind that you'll never have to replace a battery.

For example: I like to play first-person shooters, and one of them is Mirror's Edge. Mirror's Edge is one of those games that seems to require holding W the longest because it's not wise to stop moving forward in this game. That's because this game is all about "flowing". So that's one game where I'd be concerned about running out of battery power at the most inconvenient times.

I LoL'ed so hard

You don't know what your talking about...

NKRO is for mechanicals..

ahahaha

NKRO doesn't matter for what he's doing

the fact is, you don't know that, he could be "light" gaming, and have one game that he absolutely needs NKRO to work for or it will F him up

While but I will say that there aren't too many games I can think of that require full NKRO TBH and you'll most likely, be fine, find a workaround, or find out very soon that it's not going to work for you.

chance's are if you're not having trouble now, you won't later.

I've always had cheap keyboards and I never noticed a need until I got this Lycosa where its causing me issues and I need to find something different.

I've always had cheap keyboards and I never noticed a need until I got this Lycosa where its causing me issues and I need to find something different.
Who are you talking to? I can't tell because there's no way to tell.
  1. We all know that the only keyboards that have NKRO are mechanical keyboards that specifically have "NKRO" listed in its features
  2. No one said that he should get a rubber dome keyboard that has NKRO because we all know that there are no rubber dome keyboards that feature "NKRO"
  3. We aren't saying that he needs NKRO. We are merely clarifying the terms in order to educate thereby clearing up any possible confusion.
  4. There are no games that absolutely require NKRO. But having NKRO does provide total peace of mind for games that end up resulting in blocked keys on most keyboards (yes, even on many mechanicals)
  5. This is why I stated that it can be helpful to know a keyboard's key rollover capabilities (or perhaps it's better to say its "key matrix")
  6. The Lycosa has a redesigned matrix so that there's a much smaller chance of having blocked keys when using the WASD cluster for forward, backward, left and right (so, when using the usual defaults)

Now, I want to put this into perspective: I have a mechanical keyboard with NKRO. It's a "Filco Majestouch Tactile Click NKRO". But do I really need NKRO? No. However, I wanted that complete peace of mind. But I could have put a ton of effort into doing my research to find a non-NKRO keyboard that will guarantee me that I won't have any blocked keys while using my preferred layouts in the games I play. However, the thought of doing that completely caused me to justify the extra cost of the "NKRO" model (at the time, I only had eyes for the Filcos on EliteKeyboards.com). I mean, in order to guarantee myself that I'll never have to worry, I had two choices: do that research thereby allowing me to spend less, or don't do the research and spend more on a board featuring NKRO.

I've been participating in the Mechanical Keyboard Guide for a little over a year now, and there's one thing I've learned in regards to key rollover: most people don't need NKRO, but there are still some who have 1 or 2 blocked keys for a small percentage of their games which forced them to reconfigure their keyboard layouts in those games. So the lesson is that they probably could have avoided that if they worked hard on finding a keyboard that promises no blocked keys due to its matrix (the internal design, essentially). But again: for most people, this is absolutely no problem.

So Speedster159, if you run into any blocked keys, then I'll be surprised. So don't worry about it.

Wireless isnt annoying...



So you might have to hit the reset button every so often or replace the battery... BFD
