Alternative keyboard layouts really aren’t worth the effort of reprogramming my brain. I tried to play starcraft on one of those split keyboards ppl use for fps games and my brain almost fell out of my ears

Lol one of my coworkers let me use his phone recently and he had a Dvorak layout. I started typing with muscle memory and I was like what the FUCK?!

Dvorak is (supposed to be) an improvement for touch typists. It's not, but typing on a phone isn't touch typing so either way idk why someone would do that.

All the vowels are on the left side so I hope he's at least left handed and not constantly having to reach the far side of his screen

I use Colemak at my desktop and QWERTY on the phone.

If you use Dvorak on your computer it would make sense to also use it on the phone so you can reuse your muscle memory.

StarCraft is sort of unique in that you use most of the keyboard, and reflex memory to hit the right letter or number key is a big deal.

Other game classes may take to different control schemes better.
