    I don't know what country you're in, but in civilised society you cannot purposely block accessibility. And I can't help but wander what kind of person would want to! M&K is not officially supported but is not, and has never been blocked. I'll say it again, "They are not allowed to block accessibility" You obviously have no technical knowledge. The XIM just sends compatible inputs to the Xbox. W-A-S-D input looks very different to natural left stick input. I would expect any high school student studying computer science to be able to write a bit of code to separate the XIM users

    Bluehole have always been able to detect and block XIM users. Do you really think they can't easily see the difference between analogue stick input and binary keyboard? For both moral and legal reasons, they cannot block M&K without providing a dedicated M&K server for accessibility users. Yes, it would split the player base. Not as much as people fear though. Most XIM cheats would give up if forced onto a M&K server. Anyway, it's that or the status quo...

    Who would police / administer this in each country? The bottom line is that Bluehole cannot block M&K because of accessibility. It is unofficially allowed. There are no workable solutions to ensure that only those that need to use M&K actually use them. Apart from anything else, accessibility users would never stand for being made to provide medical proof in order to play a console game! Things are either left as they are, with M&K playing alongside controller, or M&K are stuck on a separate server. Bluehole probably feel like they can't have a conversation about this as so many people think there are options other than the two I've just listed.

    Bluehole can easily detect and block all M&K users. They would have to make a M&K server available for accessibility users. I believe most XIM users would go back to controller once they lost their advantage. Of course, just like "beavykins", there will always be a few Xbox players that just prefer M&K, and are happy to play on the M&K server even if it means longer wait times.

    Well the only other option to a separate M&K server is to keep the current status quo, with M&K playing alongside controller. Official M&K's will only increase the number of M&K users if they are allowed to play side-by-side controller users. That's something I, and I think virtually all controller users, would be very unhappy about 🙁

    Do you not think that current and potential M&K users would be massively deterred from M&K if a dedicated M&K server was their only option? The vast majority of M&K users have no accessibility issues. They just want an advantage over controller users. Take away the advantage and there is no longer any reason to use M&K. Unless you're just a bit weird...

    The pad / keyboard junction also looks like a floppy weak point. Still gotta sit bolt upright on your sofa. Not my idea of comfort.

    It's already available and Bluehole are not blocking it. That's probably enough for them to comply with any accessibility laws. But that's very unfair to the controller users as it allows people without accessibility issues to cheat by using M&K A separate server with a zero tolerance on all other servers would keep everyone happy. I suspect a majority of current M&K cheats would switch back to controller if their only M&K option was a dedicated M&K server! Accessibility users couldn't complain about being on a M&K server, as M&K gives a clear advantage. Non-accessibility users also have rights!

    mmm, I'm just a layman, but my understanding is that in the EU a company has to take REASONABLE steps to make their products or services accessible. A company BLOCKING accessibility could find themselves in trouble. As M&K gives an advantage over the average controller user, it can be argued that it is not unreasonable for M&K to be put on a separate server?

    They can't stop it because of accessibility issues. Personally, If I wanted to sit at a desk, instead of chilling on my comfy sofa, I'd play on PC. Apart from streaming, I can't think of a reason to play the game sat at a desk, other than to give yourself an advantage over controller users. I'm crap at the game, but improving (ever so) slowly. The better I get, the more noticeable M&K users become. I'm not going to loose any sleep over it though... Maybe a solution would be M&K on a separate designated server with aggressive banning on other servers?
  11. Awesome idea. And simple for it to be implemented...
