    Please revert the change to controller option 3 - LB + Left Stick + Rb is a nightmare

    Loving pretty much all of the changes made in the latest XB1 patch. Except for the total destruction of controller configuration 3.

    Option 3 put all of your abilities on the triggers and bumpers, absolutely optimal for being able to cast while still using the thumbsticks to aim. LB + RB is used to ult, which is TOTALLY fine.
    To level up your ultimate. The combination was Left Stick + Y. This was incredibly simple and caused zero issues.
    For some reason, this patch while changing some of the dpad and consumable functions, Hirez decided to change this controller option.

    Now to skill up your ult, you have to press LB + Left Stick + RB all at the same time, in order to put a point in your ult. What does the Y button do now? Nothing This combination is infuriating to input ingame and even harder to do while actively laning. If you press one button slightly sooner then you skip your ult and level your RB or LB. It literally destroys the controller option.

    I could understand if there was some huge functionality that Y needed to be used for, or if it was breaking the game in some way. But the fact that the best controller option was destroyed for no reason is mindboggling to me.

    I know some people on PC might think this is a bit of an overreaction, but imagine if in order for you to lane, rather than leveling arguably your most important skill with just one or two key strokes, you instead had to flip a coin and press 3 different keys of different sizes and shape, while moving using the same keys.

    TL;DR - Please make your ult skilling up Left Stick + Y again for option 3, having to input LB + Left stick + RB and skipping your ult is an absolute unnecessary nightmare when the Y button is sitting there unused.

    Edit: Before I get people saying option 2 is the old option 3. It is not. Option 3 casts your ult with LB + RB so you can still aim while ulting, option 2 does not, all I'm asking is that the functionality of leveling your ult with Left Stick + Y (which is the one option 2 uses) is reintroduced.

    Controller changes are a work in progress as we progress through alpha. We have more changes planned that did not make it into the current patch.

    That said, feedback helps us direct those upcoming changes, so it is quite useful =)

    Um it is...

    Option 3 never had ultimate on LB+RB.

    Your ultimate was the only skill on the face button Y and ummm turn on normal casting?

    Problem solved.

    EDIT: You can also set the cast mode for each ability manually now while in game by going to abilities.

    EDIT2: Option 2 is OG option 3, now if what you're saying is to leave option 3 as LB+RB but change the leveling of ultimate to LS+Y you should of worded it better.

    Could not agree more with this. I have had to switch between controller options mid-fight to be able to level my ult, as trying to level it using the current Option 3 settings causes one to level up either ability 2 or 3 instead, and using the other control options makes it harder to aim your abilities while moving...

    Change it to LS+Y asap please.

    I meant they basically deleted option 4 and made it option 3. But they for whatever reason changed LS+Y to LB+LS+RB, which was totally unneeded. It makes it reaaaally difficult to level your ult without screwing up and the Y button is just sitting there doing nothing now.

    I love having the ult at LB+RB, but leveling it with LB+LS+RB is infinitely more difficult than pressing LS+Y.

    Sorry I didn't word it properly.

    I got used to the default controller setting before the change. This was a little bit frustrating, seeing how i was perfectly comfortable with the LT+Up D-Pad (or+A,B,Y,X etc.) also the move of the cancel ability being moved to the other side. Now when ever a surrender vote is up i have to LS+Up,Down D-Pad. so that means i have to reach across the controller.

    Would it be possible to have the original controller default in there as another option? please.
