Just curious about whether or not there is an advantage to either key choice and some insights on the preferences. I have ALWAYS used Q and E and while this used to get me into a little trouble because I'd forget I was turning after about 6000 battles I finally got that under control. 

 

What do you use? Is it just habit or is there a specific reason?

Q / E. Throttle in this game uses pre-sets and I like to use the same system for my rudder.

Q and E always got me into trouble when I accidentally tapped them without realizing it.

Now Q is mapped as F3 (Designating target) and E is used for  PTT on voice comms.

Voila! No more surprise turns for me...

A and D for me. I like having more hands on control with my turns as sometimes you need more precise movements from your bote.

I use both q & e and a & d but I do use q & e more. I like q & e for firing on the move.

I use q/e for longer turns or generally with BB's (cause slow as hell rudder and all), a/d is when I need more precision or usually DD's. Other than accidental hits/using q/e cause manipulating throttle as well and the game does not always like me holding multiple keys.

Have to admit I'm surprised how uncommon the QE only is... so far anyway. Maybe all the normal people come in a little later in the day... :Smile_hiding:

Q & E

 

Leaves me more room to mentally focus on situational awareness.

This is my take on it as well.

I use D and G.  Poll is flawed in that it lacked a customer keyboard option.

They are keybindings for two other keys already in the poll... 

Rebuke is rebuked.
