I’m sure I’m not the only left handed player, so how do you lefties have your keys assigned?

 

Personally I’ve opted to use the arrow keys and number keypad for my right hand and use the mouse in my left hand. I’ve never really got on with the WASD key combo, but have never tried it in WOT.  
 

The strange thing is whilst at work I use my mouse in my right hand so I can write with my left.... if that makes sense.

 

Cheers

Leftie here too.  I also use the arrow keys and some of the keypad for loading and 'shoot that tank!'.

 

Mouse on the left hand as at work. I love watching fellow colleagues reaching for a mouse that isn't where they think it should be.

You could turn your keyboard upside down ?

I'd say number pad would be a good idea but dunno if your laptop has one.

With the number pad you'd have more keys within reach quickly wich you can assign to ammo or consumables.

Woo! I'm a leftie too!

 

 but I use the mouse the traditional way, Probably too late to change now lel.

I mostly use the per usual WASD keys like everyone, and I put my repair kit on the number 5, since it is very close to the control keys.

for the sniper view, I ocasionally use the CTRL key but I have a mouse with buttons, where I have the CTRL key assinged too, and use that way more often since it means I have all my aiming on the mouse, and all the controlling on my keyboard.

 

Sorry I can't be of help!

I have two left feet. Not only is it awkward for dancing, but when I go to the beach I wear flop-flops.

The origin of the word "sinister" is now a lot clearer.

Fun fact, I'm right-handed but left-footed. I could never kick a ball properly with my right foot...

 

One of my colleagues at work uses the mouse with his left hand, even though he's right-handed. It's because of the table arrangement and apparently he's fine with it...

Hey! If you really had two left feet you'd be wearing flip-flips, you liar.

I'm left-handed, left footed but I use computer normally. So I use the mouse with right hand and WASD on keyboard. Funny that I can handle the mouse with my right hand but not the spoon.

I’m right handed but eat left handed. It makes using a fish knife a bit of a nightmare.
