I'm a pad player, and I have my right hand OVER the controller instead of gripping it, using my index, middle, and ring fingers on the face buttons mimicking an arcade stick. I map assist 2 to L2 so I have both assist buttons at my control since I can't reach them with my right hand. The main reasons for this are I play Zero and Vergil, so I can charge L and still have comfortable access to the other buttons, while at the same time being able to press 2 buttons simultaneously for pushblock/airdash. I know this is very different, but I've always wondered if anyone else plays this way.

I think they actually have pads made specifically just for that kind of grip.

Nah, I use my thumbs and hold the controller normally... because I grew up with my Playstation controller and learned the actual basic fighting game concepts using a custom configuration which I have adapted all the way into MvC2 and MvC3.

Plus my thumbs are the most superior part of my body. I kid you not. I can demonstrate it but only with a different game.

Monster Hunter style? If there's an "official term" for it, I had no idea o.o

Yeah but its just not the same, I love my PS3 pad growing up as mainly a playstation gamer. I've just played fighting games this way ever since I had to press 2 buttons at once/charge a button.

Nope.. cause mapping assist 2 to L2 would be a nightmare for me. I can't use the shoulder buttons with my left hand very proficiently. I tend to snap back accidentally when using the left shoulder buttons for assists while moving around (creating mixups). So I mapped both assists to R1/2 which make clawing unthinkable. I dash with two buttons and mapped an LM dash to L2 for Plinking (not a big deal since I don't main Tridashing flyers).

Sweet, another Claw user! I don't play Claw in MK though since it isn't needed. Even JWong plays on a pad for MK, it's just unnecessary.

Nope. I play the game normally. I do have Assist 2 mapped to L2 though. That way, I can set R1 to Light attack and charge the Buster.
