    I guessed my case was pretty rare then.....I started to have left joy con drift issue after 1 year of using it, then I bought new pair of joy con to replace them, fast forward after another 1 year, I pick up the old joy con to try and see how badly it became...who knows after the software update and calibrated, the old one back to normal again and play flawlessly until today....pure luck I guess....

    My left Joycon has light drift from heavy usage in Smash Bros, but my Mario Odyssey Joycons (both of them) are completely unusable due to how heavy the drift is)

    Nintendo: £60 for joy cons Me: wow! These must be good- Joycons: *mario kart earrape* Me: huh I wonder how much a dock is because it also broke Nintendo: £60 _take it or leave it_ Me: you are obsessed with 60 aren’t you?

    I have 4 switches in my house, 2 first gens, 1 new model and 1 lite. Every single joycon i have ever owned has gotten drift, including the lite. Its not inconsistent, its very consistent, within a months time i have to replace the stix in each joy con. Nintendo may fix them for free, but they should be replacing them with a model that doesnt do this. Also i find it a hell of alot faster to just fix them myself. Stix on amazon are about 10 bucks for 2 stixs

    I've been playing video games since the dawn of time. The switch is the only controler that I have experienced drift. Simple fix for drift. Buy new joy cons. Place old ones in the package and return for full refund. Let nintendo foot the bill and all the annoyance.

    I don't put my switch through the ringer by any means, I'd say it gets average use, but I don't quite have stick drift. I have just a really soft left stick, and it's only been a couple months. It doesn't have the solid flick the other one does anymore, and it even can make it really hard to run playing Let's Go, because it won't read that the stick is pushed all the way to the side. 😩

    I'm not sure if my joy cons have drift or not but it doesn't bother the way I play games so overall the switch has good controls

    i have drift pretty bad in both joycons... the second i turn mine on it goes flying around the home screen like crazy. Tried to play xenoblade 2 and the characters ran straight off a cliff and the camera panned down to watch it.... quite fitting. Tried calibrating but they're so bad that i cant complete the process because it doesn't register i let go of the joystick. I've preordered the animal crossing switch fingers crossed i wont have the issue again.

    I've got a launch-day Switch and extra set of Joycons. I've taken all 4 apart and re-shelled them. They've all taken their licks from hours of Mario Party, and two of them have gone through 150+ hours of BotW and 100+ hours of Mario Odyssey. I haven't had a single Joycon drift on me. Guess I'm just lucky.

    there is no fix, nintendo has to change their desing from the skate-like stick into a regular stick, that means making the joycon twice as thick

    I still get people telling me that joycon drift isn't real, while I've had 3 out of my 5 joycons experience the issue. One of those is one that Nintendo sent me after fixing it that was drifting the moment I paired it and they had to replace it again.

    I had a joy con drift and I went to the Nintendo support website ,they asked me the serial code of my switch and a few other questions, they sent me an email to put the joy-cons in a sealed bag and then they came to pick the joy cons up and they sent me new joy cons!

    I have 8 joycons... 1 left joycon drifted after 6 months.. I tried a ton of these methods to fix it. It was just not going to work correctly again. 1 out of 8 is bad as an average. They also weren't "fixing them for free" at the time so I gave it to a 3 year old to pretend he was playing. If they were 45 bucks a pair or something it would be like whatever...but 75 to 90 dollars depending where you get them is absurd. I managed black Friday sales for around 50
