No this is a game meant to be played accordingly.

If you're below average and have to have an edge over your fellow console players just because you suck.
That's your own problem.

I´m NOT saying to not do a crossplay between consoles and PC´s, but you could put some option in the menu to allow people who doesn´t want to play against mouse and keyboards to be able to select servers that allows joystick´s only, if you´re playing with your PC friend, you´re locked to the mouse and keyboard servers so you can have a good time with your friend.

If FPS games were “meant” to be played with a controller then why do we need “aim assist”? Obviously you feel controller players are “below average” to k/m players. Not looking for an “edge”, just looking for a more accurate input device for the game. Much like steering wheel controllers are better for driving games.

Console play is meant to be played with controllers hence they're always provided with controllers if the production companies wanted you to play with keyboards and mice they would have added those instead.

The aim assist is added due to the difficulty of aiming with a controller. BUt you're so bad you even add a keyboard and mouse with aim assist to it.
You're a trash player seeking help of 3rd party peripherals to up your game chances by having a significant unbalanced and unfair step ahead.

This should ONLY come if they were auto put into pc lobbies and had no aim assist.

I think they should make it so if you play on mouse and keyboard you have to play on pc servers, even if you are on console, that way everyone will be happy

Guessing you're not that smart. But just to let you know, games on xbox that can use a kb/m can only be matchmaked with other kb/m users. So they can't gain an edge against controller players. Also if there will be cross play (pretty sure they will) if you use that matchmaking you'll be playing with PC players, and they use kb/m and you'll be at the disadvantage. You're elitist attitude is pathetic at best.

 

Edit: and I'm glad you brought up "consoles are meant to be played with controllers, that's why they are shipped with it." Well XBOX, you know the console makers, have enabled kb/m support and said it's up to the game developers to implement them if they want, so seems they intend it to be played both ways. So do you count racing wheels or fight sticks to be the same? Even though some are developed by Sony or Microsoft themselves for THEIR console. What about the Microsoft licensed razer kb/m coming out this year? If they didn't intend their console to be played that way, why license it?
