This is aimed at PC gamers (who might also be Xbox One/PS4 owners) and those of you who are digging the Fighter Squadron game mode. We highly recommend using a controller if you can and here's why.
It's a lot easier to aim the reticle on your X-Wing or Tie-Fighter if you're using a game controller. Plain and simple.
If you're in a ship, you're going to be holding down a button to lock onto enemies. Holding down the trigger on the controller is more comfortable than holding down the aim button on the keyboard. It's also much easier to turn your ship (or whatever you're using) on a dime with the controller.
If you have a controller sitting around or some money to burn, think about investing in a controller for the game. You'll be more effective in the air (and on the ground) and that will lead to higher scores, more credits and perhaps, more fun.
