For me, this gate is required to use an arcade stick.
on June 12, 2016
I bought this for my Mad Catz TES+ SFV stick. It was very slightly tricky on this stick because you have to angle the plate a bit if you don't want to take the whole thing apart, but I would still describe it as easy to install. It took me all of about 10 minutes. BTW, this is the first arcade stick I've ever owned, and the first time I've installed one of these gates.
I am an American, and I grew up with this type of restrictor plate at arcades. After installing this plate in my stick, it finally felt "normal" to me.
If you have a new stick and it feels funny to you, get this plate and install it! I personally just cannot play with the square gate, because I grew up with this sort of plate.
I mainly play Zangief on SFV, so this definitely helps a lot with the 360 moves. I've also been playing Guile and F.A.N.G., who are charge characters, and I can do the charge moves just fine with this gate. To me, this is the most natural gate to have on an arcade stick, and I'll put one in any stick I get.
