Stratus XL LS Glitches

So I was having issues with my Stratus XL controller having either hyper sensitivity or no sensitivity on the right trigger,the "support" people at stratus are no help,dont even bother trying to ask them for any. I bought a brand new Stratus XL controller,right out of the box,never been used only for it to then tell me it needed a "critical firmware update" and to insert a micro USB into the controller and then into the computer only to find,oh,big surprise it didnt COME with the cable that I apparently NEED for this update so my lovely $50 controller will work properly. I did however find out today that this is an issue nobody with a PS4 will ever have to deal with since the cable used to charge the PS4 controllers is conveniently a micro USB. SteelSeries,get your act together and stop sending out products that need updating out of the box only to make us spend more money to buy the cables we need.

I'm pretty sure the Stratus XL uses a standard Micro USB cable for its firmware update. Irritating that you need to update the controller, of course, but you should be able to use the same cable you use with your PS4 controllers!

A debt of gratitude is in order for the understanding folks! I'll try the Horipad or the Mad Catz out to make sure I can at any rate have a controller to create with that doesn't glitch out while we as a whole sit tight for the Nimbus!

What's more, definitely that photograph of the USB port was super useful! Can't trust it's behind the batteries! haha.... ugh. I even checked the manual and there was no specify of it by any means!

At that point I had a go at refreshing the firmware just to discover... "No refresh fundamental." Ha! I can't help disagreeing, Steelseries! lol

I really wish I would of done my research before buying the stratus XL. Seems like everyone is having the same glitch.

I tried updating the firmware as well and all it said was it was up to date. I thought it was just one trigger till I started playing metal gear solid and it was both, just randomly glitching.

I couldn't even play the damn game. Games where the back triggers were of no use use, the control was fine.

I was using this for Android btw... Stratus XL is garbage!
