I’ve been binging hard on realm royale for a month straight. Maybe 3-4 hrs a day. Give or take. So far, no issues. Guess it just depends how hardcore you game. But as with all controllers they def will wear down. Imo, it’s worth it so far for me personally. Wait for a sale or just snag it. Or for smash I’d use the game cube controllers. Only 20-24 bucks.
