Didn't even know it was on the table. Cant' say there have been many requests for or posts about it.

Work on controller support started but progress is slow as work on the controller only happens when the coder doesnt' have a lot of other tasks he needs to finish. He says 2-3 days full time, had to say when there's enough gaps to complete it

Still no controller support?

Maybe this is being a bit ridiculous, but I thought I should mention that I passed on buying this because there is no controller support. I may pick it up in the future when I am again able to sit at my desk,but I may have forgotten about this game by then.

You're right, it is being ridiculous. Very ridiculous.
What is it with these half-baked, vague threats of not buying unless you meet my specific demands? They seem to pop up more than often in threads where people express a, at many times, very personal need/request/issue. It feels like a blatant lack of common sense, that some individuals feel they should hold the company hostage because something THEY want, is not being implemented the instant they demand it. Guess that's the internet for you.

There really should be full (and configurable) controller support "as soon as possible" (in a way that the controller is the only input device needed with no additional mouse or whatever).

Along with configurable key bindings imho these are quite important features.

There is a big difference between the imperative of "There should be" and the affectation "I want there to be".

The game is playable without a controller. The world is not going to end without controller support. And most of all, Full Control is not going to go bankrupt because fifteen or twenty people who consider a lack of controller support a deal-breaker and don't buy it. You're demanding a luxury, not an essential feature. Just because you you consider it essential, that does not technically or physically make it essential. In fact, given once again, that the game does not need a controller to be played, it is by definition nonessential.

You want it. At some point, you'll probably get it. But there is no logical reason for Full Control to capitulate to a frivolous demand of this nature when there are other far more pressing demands being made of them. Three people have demanded controller support. To date, no less than 60 have posted to this board asking for Co-operative gameplay, and another 104 (to my count of existing posts) have asked for Squad Customization and Army Painter features. If for no other reason, the volume of demand from those people-- most of whom bought the game and proved a sense of loyalty to the company---puts those two features far above controller support on a priority list.

Posting it to the developer is, especially considering how limited the interest for this feature has been. They attempt to hold the devs "hostage" with their zipped wallets, until their demands are met, even though thousands have bought the game, sans the feature they wanted, and few to none have requested said feature. It is actually downright stupid.

i agree it is stupid but i still stand by what i said

Well, it may not be ridiculous to withold buying the game because of a lack of a desired feature, but it also doesn't merit any sympathy. The demands posted are flatly ludicrious by virtue of their confrontational aggressive tone, and by their very nature beg to be ridiculed-- thus making them ridiculous.

As well you should, because there is no reason to buy something your not satisfied with. It was the demand part of the post I was referring to as ridiculous, so in essence, we are saying the same thing :)

I am not demanding anything. Simply providing input from a lost sale of a demographic that certainly exists. I should maybe mention I am suffering from an injury that prevents me from sitting at my desk for any time at all. I am typing this in Big Picture mode now. I also noted that I might buy the game later, when I am again in a condition to sit at my desk. I am not entirely sure how my desire to aid the devs in preventing the loss of future sales could be perceived as being confrontational, but I suppose when a fellow hides behind a computer screen he might embolden himself to belittle another's input to facitate the inflation of his diminutive ego. That's a confrontational tone.
