But woudn't they just take their pro controller with them far out of reach?Wintermelon43 Have you ever watched a tournament stream where two people are about to play, but they can't because someone's Pro controller turned on and connected to the console? Well, now they have to waste time looking for whoever's controller connected. They ban them for the potential disruptions.
If you want to attend a tournament with them banned, maybe try suggesting a solution to the TO such as keeping the battery removed. I know Sol (Mac player) uses the Pro controller, not sure how he handles TOs though
Well they could. I don't know the range of the Pro but I think it's pretty far. People might hang around and watch other matches, or just stick around fairly close if they have to play againBut woudn't they just take their pro controller with them far out of reach?
I hate the misconception you can't desync a game pad. You can do it, and it is the same exact way that you do it with a Wii Remote. Press the one little red button it has and you disconnected it from the system. Press the button on the system and the button on the pad and you resync it. You won't drag the system with it and you don't need to turn off the console.I might need someone else to double-check this, but iirc you can't just "unsynch" or "turn off" the gamepad. You'll drag the whole system with it, so if someone synched one and another person wants to as well, you'd need to turn off the console.
But the main problem I have with the Gamepads is that there can only be ONE pad at a time; if both players want it, what is the fairest solution?
I don't really have problems with allowing it as a controller per se, but the logistics issues it brings are just not worth it if you can simply use another controller (even if borrowed).
Sorry, that was me.Why has my survey been deleted and why wasn't I at least informed about its result?
Who is responsible for this?
The best answer for this is in the OP: Whatever you feel more comfortable with.I use a wiichuck (wiimote + nunchuck) and am wondering what the general consensus is of a professional set up.
I haven't used one in a long, LONG but I only turned Tap Jump Off and set the D-pad for Smashes.2) What is your set up if you use wii chuck?
No tournaments force default control scheme. You're free to change it as you please.So I use the Wii U GamePad (don't have a Pro Controller yet, but that could change soon), and I wasn't a fan on the standard control scheme. So what I did is I changed the controls so they were more similar to Mario platformers (A or B to jump, and then X and Y for other stuff, I have X for attack and Y for special). This works great for me, but if I were to go to a tournament, would I be allowed to change my control scheme before we begin?
Welp, time to get a Pro Controller then. Although I could borrow my friend's Classic Controller Pro. Close enough.No tournaments force default control scheme. You're free to change it as you please.
However, using a gamepad might be disallowed depending on your TO/region's preferences.
