Alright so this is a suggestion my friend came up with and hes an avid Vindictus player. he likes the fact you can play BDO, and other games with a controller. so i was curious if anyone else would like the idea to be able to play Icarus with a controller.

Just a suggestion if you like it feel free to leave a comment. Infact i can place a poll :3!

    As long as people vote i think it'll be a probable thing. So if you have friends playing get them to vote too~ <3

    What would the real difference be? I've never used a controller for a PC game

    @Zanicus Probably not but some people rather use a controller then having to use a keyboard but you have much more buttons on a keyboard then anything else

    its true a keyboard can have more but you would be surprised what a controller can do

    Depends on what kinda controller you're talking about. XBox controller? No I think that would be a bad idea.

    @majickman why? it honestly doesn't change how you will play the game and won't affect the people using them (besides having the ability of having more buttons)

    WAIT confirmed Majick is the Troll image

    @KingZero_Jonas Well I think the use of custom controllers would be great. PC controllers specifically designed for use with PCs.. and yes I understand that Microsoft has the XBox and everything is basically a computer, and TVs are Bluetooth enabled and compatible for HDMI connection as extensions or separate monitors; but I really think it's better off to have a way to strike many more button combinations without the additional trouble of accidental button pressing because of simple sensitivity issues. Leave console controllers to console games. You can't progress without forward momentum and change.

    Also there aren't more buttons on an XBox controller. and there aren't really more combinations. The only limiting factor in configuration at all is that it has to use escape keys (Ctl, Alt, Shift) instead of simultaneous comboing. Also I like the escape keys. Would be nice to have both.

    @majickman Again that is great for you but for people who want to use it let them use it the game is not just for you it if for everyone and for everyone to enjoy in their OWN way

    I too would like the ability to use a controller. I don't mind using keyboard, but controller just feels more comfortable.

    Final Fantasy XIV does a wonderful job of mapping skills to the controller.

    With a standard ps3~4 or xbox controller, using the options available, you have easy access to 32 different skills.

    Holding R2 or L2 gives you access to 8 skills each, using the face buttons and dpad.

    Holding R2 then L2 gives you 8 more.

    And holding L2 then R2 gives you access to a different set of 8.

    R1 will cycle through the active page, changing which skills are on holding just R2 or L2.

    While holding R1 will let you switch to a specific page out of 8 by using the face and dpad.
