in game, while in middle of battle, isn't feel annoying to inform something urgent by typing whole sentence in chat?

 

I mean... come on! we in middle of a gun fight, torpedoes can show up any minutes, one wrong turn or miss turn would show your full broadside to invite enemy to hit your citadel.

sometime... no, many times simply clicking on mini-map is not enough to deliver massage.

 

why not create some 'macro chat' system?

 

i.e. use f1 - f12  allow player to put in word or short phrase and simply said it in game by pressing assign button??

 

like....

f1 : A(B,C) is open! Cap it!

f2 : our CV in trouble! (click on DD that sneak in)

f3 : enemy CV here! (click on map)

.

.

.

f12 : Poi

.....etc.....

 

you can limit amount of character to put in to prevent too long text, and of cause, some system that make it can't continues pressing like crazy to spam chat box.

 

 

 

.... okay, that f12 I was just kidding...

We used auto-text in virtual skipper, it was great to be able to tap one key and say a whole sentence, or simply declare STARBOARD!!! to another yacht that may be on a collision course with you. Its a good idea.

Frankly....the in game chat should have been included in WOWs before the live launch. It feels incomplete without it.
