Why do you use them? More immersion into the game, makes it more fun?   

Do you play the game better with rudder pedals?

I would imagine it would be easier and more fun to play with rudder pedals. I say easier mainly because I tend to make unwanted yaw movements when banking.

I don't know if you need rudder pedals but I got them for my flight simulator. So I use them quite from the beginning of playing WoWP.

It really helps me when aiming on a target that crosses my view laterally. A joystick with Z-axis should do the same.

It also feels more natural when flying a plane.


Imagine playing a race car game with wheel and pedals compared to mouse and keyboard.

Controlling Yaw helps a lot for various reasons, but most sticks today have a twist handle which you can use Yaw on, so the need for pedals is not needed.  


As for right now I do not use my pedals, because I have played with JS Twist Axis with WoWp for almost 2 1/2 years now and trying to retrain my muscle memory to use my feet to yaw is giving me issues.


But when I was using the Pedals you can jerk the stick X or Y without worrying if you are adding Yaw to your maneuvers.  I felt that I can control my maneuvers even more when its separate from the joystick.
