So I recently installed a program called Motioninjoy, which essentially allows you to hook up a PS3 controller to the computer, using it for games that let you use a xbox 360 controller and normal usb controllers, however I noticed today it allows you to use custom inputs, not just key's but actually allows you to control the mouse as well, so I decided to see how LOL works with a ps3 controller, here are my controls

left control stick is the mouse

square, X, O, triangle are QWER respectively

pushing in left stick is D and right stick is F

L1 is left mouse Click R1 is right

L2 is CTRL for ease of picking abilities, R2 is the number 2, so I can use potions and the like.

I played as Garen, since 3 of his moves do not require clicks I thought he would be the best choice, and guess what? its actually quite playable! I was able to lane with ease, even getting the lizard buff (I was playing TT) overall its quite fun just to try, but remember that champions like Ezreal would be infinitely more difficult to play, but things like buying items, managing your inventory, and maneuvering through the map are all surprisingly easy, if you have the methods you should definitely give it a shot!

if it has the same response time and sensitivity of the mouse it would be easier i would think

This. Im half and half with the idea. Only cause I've been converted to PC gaming while I've been a console gamer since I could hold a controller in my hands.

the response time and sensetivy are either spot on or VERY close, i wouldnt want to aim skillshots with a control, but using someone like garen or udyr is actually completly doable.

edit: no i wouldnt want to try a real match XD it was just a practice game with bots, eventually i might move up to actual people.
