So the other day I tried playing Tetris with a keyboard for the first time since "seriously" picking up TGM. Namely, I've been interested in getting into some of the Tetris games that actually have an active VS-"community", whether it would be Cultris or TetrisFriends or whatever the kids play these days. And while I've previously tried playing Cultris with a joystick setup, to make it more familiar to me, I feel that it would be better for me to not limit myself. The general concensus is that keyboard is a faster and more effecient way of playing, so I should learn it, right? My problem is that not only am I not used to playing high speed Tetris with a keyboard, I'm really not used to playing any video games with a keyboard at all, and controlling the pieces just doesn't feel intuitive in any way. It's really difficult to explain, but the keyboard just feels like a huge handicap to me, and I feel like grandpa trying to write his first e-mail with no idea where each letter is located. I tried a 40L sprint on TetrisFriends just to "benchmark", and I couldn't even get below 2 minutes, which is ridiculous. While I'm not exactly the fastest Tetris player out there to begin with, I can obviously handle a much faster game, and it feels really infuriating when what's holding you back is not the speed at which the pieces appear, but your own struggle with the controls. While the obvious route here is just "keep playing and eventually I will get it", I'm curious if anyone else here had the same struggle? I feel like most people came from keyboards and adapted to joysticks, not the other way around. Are there any training exercises I could use which could help my effeciency? Maybe a specific key setup that would be easier for me to adapt to? Or is the advantage from playing well with a keyboard so small anyway, that I might as well just forget about it, and hook up a stick to my PC?
