Hey there!

So I've been noticing for a long time now, that people use their consumables with inhuman reactions, and im not talking about the auto-fire extinguishers. This is the most noticeable when im playing arty and i stun ppl for about 0,25sec before they use their med kits. Is this even possible without any macros or something? If there are such things, are these LEGAL?

Thx.

There are mods (illegal) which do it, but there's also the possibility someone is spamming their medkit key in case arty hits them.

 

Personally (and what I recommend everyone to do) I set my mouse thumb buttons to use the repair kit and fire extinguisher. I set the rep kit in the middle slot (5 key equivalent) so I just have to double-tap the key and my tracks are back up quickly, same for extinguisher, just press the button. Also, with the 4 key bound to the medkit (and the driver being on the same key for his healing) just double tap 4 which is comfortably within reach and you're good to go.

 

If I'm playing Ranked I like to switch the large medkit with the auto extinguisher slots, and the large repkit stays where it is. Again, for simpler use.

 

It's fast, efficient, and you don't need any iffy mods to do it...just get a gaming mouse.

Thanks for this. Hadn't really got into gaming proper until I started WoT at the end of last year. This will be a big help... time for a trip to Amazon to order a gaming mouse. Any recommendations?

Any mouse with thumb buttons will do. I use a Sharkoon Skiller SGM2. It's surprisingly cheap for what you get but the only downside is no editable buttons, i.e. no special software as with most gaming mice. It's plug&play but it's brilliant.

That really depends on your budget, I'm using the Trust GXT 152 at present but I also have an Xbone controller plumbed in via XPadder thus the mouse has been relegated to point and click duties. :playing:

 

<£20 for the GXT 152 and <£40 for the GXT 188 Laban which has a ridiculous specification.

I put my med-kit in the first consumable slot, doesn't take long to smack '4' even with my old sausage fingers. Repairs is in the second slot so that I can hit '5-5' to get my tracks back quickly and I changed the key for the third slot to 'E' so I can activate a manual fire extinguisher without searching for the '6'. I wouldn't claim to be able to activate meds within a millisecond of being hit but it's not like it takes me ages either.

SteelSeries Rival 300 here, I like the bigger thumb buttons on it.

I also have repair kit on a thumb button. If I get tracked at speed I can thumb it and be back on the move before I've finished sliding to a halt. Probably looks very dodgy to the enemy but hey ho. :)

 

As far as mouse suggestions go I'd say go to a local PC shop and check out what feels nice in your hand before you go buy something. I personally use a Logitech G502 Hero. Not cheap, but it's a very comfy fit for me.

Using a large repair or med kit only requires you to press the button once. It's perfectly possible to repair with lightning reactions.

Not really. I sometimes saw it as well. Tanks got stunned for 50ms or so.

Well pressing the thumb button on my mouse to remove the stun don't take much longer than that.

 

Regarding mice, I use a SteelSeries Rival 310 which ain't exactly all that different from the 300 linked above, best mouse I've used in quite a while especially if you consider it's price.

Watch a streamer yesterday - actually a couple of streamers over the course of the day, can't just remember to whom  this happened - driving a normal tank he tracked the target, except the hit tank didn't even notably slowed down, just drove on so fast did he hit the repair...

If you want cheap and cheerful, I can thoroughly recommend the MadCatz RAT1 - had one for about 3 years now - faultless.

Thanks again one and all for the help. Ordered the SteelSeries Rival 310 after all you guys said and much online research. Seems to be the best from a quality/price standpoint. Did like the funky styling on the Catz-Rat, but not much change out of £80 was a lot compared to the £35 for the Steel.

I'm guessing you missed that the link Thing'un gave was to an old version. The new one (linked from that page) is £12.50 ...

Yeah, sorry.  I linked to the one I have, not the latest model.  

The are (literally) very cool - the cutaways mean that most of your hand is open to the air while using the mouse.  It also makes the mouse incredibly light, so you don't need any fancy weights or gyros to stay agile.
