    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.

    I just watched a few ISU152 replays - Tier 8 doing 700-800 per shot :eek2


    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 :rofl

    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. :D (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 :nod

    :rofl 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 :rofl

    ????

    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.

    The Stug III is a great little tank for learning how to play those types of tanks.

    It has got to be awfully difficult going through life assuming you know everything and not having everyone do what you'd do eh?

    There's a reason I don't pay attention to in game chat - too many folks who think they know everything. :csm
