Major League Gaming Pro Circuit Controller
The Major League Gaming Pro Circuit Controller is designed and manufactured by MadCatz. I purchased this controller for two main reasons. One I was looking for a gaming advantage while playing Call of Duty Black Ops 2. The second reason was for the replaceable parts. See I had a controller that I really liked in the PowerA Fus1on controller but my dog pulled it off the table and broke the left analog stick. So replaceable parts is a great idea. The controller comes with two sets of analog sticks. One set is con-caved the other is convex, to match the Xbox and PS3 type of controllers. You can change the configuration around to match a PS3 or an Xbox. I went with the Xbox layout as I have gotten very used to this do to my other controller. The build quality is very nice and I like the added weights you can add. Makes the controller feel like you are holding something of substance. It also comes with 2 different rockers, again to match the Xbox and PS3 style. It also has a detachable cord, not just a USB but a unscrew 4 pin connector. I like this as you can buy different length cords if you need to. The changeable face plates are nice but I don’t really care about that.
So after getting the Major League Gaming Pro Circuit Controller I configured it the way I wanted and hopped on to play some League on Black Ops 2. The controller felt great in my hands but as I played I noticed that I was not doing as well as I had been the other day. Sure maybe my internet connection was having some issues, maybe I was just playing a better group of people. But all day long I don’t think so. I played around 35 games with it, and did horrible with it only winning 4. My KD was well below 1 in all the games I played. Don’t get me wrong I don’t have a KD above 1 as I am a run and gunner, but I am trying to change my playing style. I had finally had enough and switched back to my other controller and it was like night and day. The next game I went 24 and 6 and went on a 7 game win streak. I turned the game sensitivity up to above 10 while using it and it did not help. I think the difference in is the analog sticks. The ones on the Fus1on just seem to be smoother and more sensitive. I hope to see maybe some other analog sticks come out for this as I would love for it to work well. But until then I will stick with my PowerA Fus1on controller.
