D-Pad for WE!! More more responsive than analog, which is a big deal in the heat of a competitive game. The reaction time to go from completely down to completely up on the analog stick is too slow for my liking. Sliding the thumb from down to up on d-pad, however, is super quick. All my friends that use the analog stick simply cannot match me for responsiveness in tight encounters. They agree, but complain about finger hurting when using the d-pad so they continue to use analog - sissies.
I use the analog stick for control of my players , but when the shot bar is going up I flick to the dpad could be wrong but I tend to think that the Dpad gives you more control of your shot..but that should not be!
