How do you set that up? It used to be "t", but it changed with a release. Don't see it in the settings either.

F2 - "Request Fire, %TARGET%" or something similar.

Which many of us switched back / remapped to the "T" key because it's the way WoT used to do it, and it's easier to reach for those of us who don't have overly-long fingers.

That is a good idea, if I only had a thumb button...

My thumb button is my push-to-talk. It's not ideal sometimes, but I find it seems better than every other key I can easily reach with my left hand, and one that doesn't interfere with XVM or communication. My ideal PTT key for WoT would be a momentary foot-switch.

T still works for me and I don't think I remapped

I just watched a few ISU152 replays - Tier 8 doing 700-800 per shot


I have to have one.. but I'm always going to have to drive it in first person because it is so ugly I can't stand to look at it.
At least the Ferdi is cool looking

Btw, you'd really do yourself an injustice by skipping the SU85 and the SU-100. They are excellent in their tier. If anything, skip the SU-152.

And yeah, expectations management in the ISU. It has pitiful armor and barely adequate camo.

Skipping it would require 419k free xp - not going to happen.

I'm not going with the ISU for armor and camo.. .I'm going for the finger of god. (already have the 122-44 wich plays like the others).
I think I'm going to rather enjoy a Tier X gun in a Tier 8 tank

we built a pharmaceutical industry robot back in the early 90s that used a foot activated momentary switch to trigger the 386 digitizer it used. The switch was awesome. It'd be pretty cool to have a pair of them - maybe one for PTT and one for Targeting.

Watching someone play WoT would be like watching someone play the drums then

????

You're already proposing skipping the SU-152.....how does that cost extra xp? I agree that you'd be putting yourself at a disadvantage by jumping into a Tier 8 TD with a less trained crew and not much experience in turretless tanks. I think it sets you up for a pretty steep learning curve in an unforgiving environment.
