You can change the controls to however you like in the full game.
Do you have proof or did you just pull that **** out of your @$$?
he probably thought you could, but omar and paul have both said that you can change the controls a tad bit, just not all the controls fully because it messes with how the game is.
I was in a match where a guy was only throwing. I **bleep** hate when people do that. Its like in cod when people only go around knifing. Play the game how everyone else plays, dont be a **bleep**
