Anyone here play with the keyboard?
I do and I'm able to do online no problem, of course I can't play grapplers or diagonal users such as Vega. Even though that may be the case, I'm not that competitive and just play the game for beating the crap out of each other and characters.

Can you guys stand playing on the keyboard and if not, why not?

I heard that doing 360's should actually be really easy on keyboard/hitbox

I play on keyboard since I know Street Fighter, and I am quite successful. I have 1300+ hours of gameplay, and I have 3500PP, and I see myself improving so no problems.

People gotta stop thinking that keyboard is difficult to play with, or handicapped for that matter. People often get intimidated by it because it feels awkward, but just like any other controller out there, there's a learning curve, and once you past that, you'll find keyboards are incredibly effective. Just to give you the taste of it, you can input a 360 move hella fast because you can literally skip diagonals (down left right up + P).

Totally agree, keyboard has always been the way to go for me. Though, I feel that it's very difficult to play say Injustice or Mortal Kombat with a keyboard compared to Street Fighter, I guess NetherRealms games were meant more for using the controller since they're mainly developing their games for the console.

If using a keyboard for movement use WASD. For attacks I recommened using the numpad and having 4 5 6 be punch attacks and 1 2 3 be kick attacks.

Actually I heard keyboard/hitbox is even more effective on those games than street fighter.

Hm, strange, I guess I could give it another shot. I just felt that with MK9 and Injustice, you have to constantly press buttons one right after the other to keep the combos going. I feel that Street Fighter is a lot more keyboard-friendly since I feel more comfortable with the inputs.

Yeah the combo system on mk9 and injustice feels different. But that's not what I'm talking about in regards to the keyboard/hitbox, i'm talking about how fast you can input directions on that game since it doesn't require diagonals.

If you want to know how MK9/Injustice combos feels like compared to SF, try out Guy's/Dudley's/Ibuki's target combo, they're practically the same feeling. What it is is that there's no strict timing to it, they're just a bunch of buttons/moves in sequence much like target combos.

Probably because those games don't have those bs sf4 shortcuts

I do, but I use ASDF (Left, Down, Up, Right) for movement so that I don't have to move my fingers around, it saves a lot of time and for specials is lot easier this way, it has its learning curve of course, but things like stepmania will help a lot, once you get used to the feel is way faster and way more accurate that the stick, and I do have a stick too, what's more, I have been thinking on make an arcade control with four buttons instead of the actual stick.

Same here actually! I use the ASDF for my l.p, m.p, h.p, and all 3. The ZXCV is the same right below except using it for the kicks. And arrows for movement.
