I like the arrow keys... It feels nore natural when you're using your left hand and a mouse, and i'm also a righty :P

I ALWAYS use WASD unless the other controls are z,x,c or something like that. That way one hand is on the mouse. If I ever need to use the arrows, I have to move over to the side to position my hand. When I do that it feels weird, unnatural and it takes quite a while to get used to it.

I personally prefer using WASD, since you have an easier access to other button for other options (Q, E, R, T, G, F, V, etc.) Also, I like my arms far apart.

Sorry but whoever uses arrow keys aren't doing it right. I mean even if you're a southpaw it's still kinda strange cause most lefties I know still use the mouse the same as a righty.

WASD makes it a more comfortable play style especially since every other key is near each other, while the arrow keys are far from everything. Usually if you do use the arrow keys, you would probably have to change all the default keys as well.

So WASD for me every day..

Oh btw, sorry for double post but.. The only way arrow keys are superior in my opinion is when there is no mouse involved, or little to no mouse use. Games where you use arrow keys and spacebar only are where arrow keys get used most.

I use both. I can play just as well with my right or left hand, though I am not ambidextrous.
