Who uses the numpad and who uses the arrow keys here? And what is your opinion on each?

Arrow keys, numpad I think is better for one handed playing( if the 5, 7, 9, 1, and 3 keys were taken out) , even though hyro uses the arrow keys....
But yeah I use the arrow keys.

Arrow keys... I just tried the numpad keys; drove me insane. But it was probably cuz it was my first time trying it. But I agree with Arch0wl, it IS better for one hand playing. :P

I see, I see...I prefer the numpad over the arrow keys, but only one flaw I can see on it: the up+down double arrows drive me insane on the numpad!

You see, I played FF7 on cpu which requires the use of #pad keys, that's all I've used since. It works best for me.

Yea, I use arrowkeys, always have, The specific version of the keyboard i have is best to use the numberkeys. I spent 40 bucks even though i didnt need a new keyboard, because it's really sensetive and smooth arrowkeys, very easy to slide (which one handed players desperately need) on the up and down keys.
yea.. arrows are better...

On my keyboard, the up and down keys have different elevations, so it is fucking HARD for me to do the down-to-up slide, because I run my finger a LITTLE bit into the up key.
One hand, Arrows.

thats exactly what my keyboard is anti. It's the ultimate sliding keyboard, it cant be completely evadable, but its the easiest youll ever get to sliding.

touch IE the buttons are just elevated slightly higher than on a laptop, and there is no click on a keypress (the keys dont resist you) if u know what i mean. If not, then shuddap.

I always use the Arrow keys it's more comfy on my right wrist for some odd reason.
But sometimes the num-pad is intresting to try out in case you're bored and want to try something new.
