Shouldn't the title of this topic be 'Make Galactic Starfighter what PERSONALLY SUITS MY PLAYSTYLE BECAUSE I DESERVE IT...ALSO I WILL NOW TALK ABOUT TURNING IT INTO A COMPLETE STAND ALONE GAME RATHER THAN AN ADD-ON TO AN MMO ENGINE'

If someone is crying because they don't have a joystick.....GOOD those are not the people you want to cater to. Flight/Combat sim players are your target market. It will provide you with a whole new player base, many of which will subscribe just to play Galactic Starfighter. Even the free to play flight sim crowd will still buy stuff from the cash shop in the form of micro transactions.
The hyperbole is strong in this one.

Nova Squadron - Zemelda - Lieutenant - The Ebon Hawk
Red Squadron - Teerayne - Senior Spaceman - The Harbinger

Making the game actually work well with a joystick would mean all the keyboard+mouse users (or: most of the game's population) would be seriously handicapped. Seriously, go to GOG, grab Xwing or TIE Fighter, and try to play it with a mouse-and then a joystick. Then think of what we'd get if we put a mouse user against a joystick user.

Making the game work with a joystick with the current design would mean joysticks would be pointless.

The only way to make it work well with a controller people actually have is if we designed it to go with everyone's favorite console controllers, because a lot of us already have these for consoles and/or other games.
