It been a while since the wheeled vehicles have been released yet i still can't enjoy them properly because i use they like to come to a dead halt when pressing X to enter/exit boost mode. obviously this only happens when you use the R button for cruise mode but that is how i move in all tanks. so when i tap R 3 times to go forward then enter or exit boost the tank comes to a stop and i have to press R 3 times again. Using R is second nature to me in this game and i literally cant drive with W. Any chance this can be fixed in the future WG?

I use the MMB (middle mouse button) to switch between modes.

ive played the game since 2011 using R, i literally rock back and forth, when holding a position, by tapping R 3 times then S.  R is love, R is life. it feels wrong for me to do otherwise. just a matter of what you're used to. switching to something else when you've played the same way for years just feels wrong

its not the button im complaining about, its the game mechanic that stops the tank when switching to boost mode if you tap R 3 times to go forward

You do not use the system how it is supposed to be used and you complain that it does not work?

I never understood people that use R, seriously. Why in gods name would you press a button 3 times when pressing another one(W) once, will do exactly the same..... It's just inefficient.

Press R twice is enough, 3 times isn't needed. I also use it so I don't have to press W all the time. I can use the chat that way, but also use X while driving/turning WVs.

I probably looked like an idiot trying to press buttons like X with my thumb. I don't think I ever used my thumbs to type one of the letters from the alphabet on a keyboard. :teethhappy:

That's the problem, you must keep your thumb on it. But R can help you, you can chat or look around or even press other key while your tank is driving.  :)

Same here, I use R a lot, and because my keyboard keys will work for absolutely longer time. By pressing one key for long time (sometimes we don't notice but when we get mad, we press so hard on them!) we may ruin the keyboard. Imagine if one important key like "W" or "S" stops working. It won't be fun, will it? :)

I am using W-key AND have the same keyboard since I started WoT in 2011. I get mad often too. My assumption is the S-key is more prone to break.

The R key i use on verry slow tanks in the begiining of the battle to get to the spot..

But thats the only time.

And people  about spare there keys  on the keyboard ...you got to be joking ???( i really hope so)

The expensive keyboards got mech keys that you can individual change out for a new one...

And cheaper keyboards ....just buy a new one..... good cheap keyboard (Corsair K55) o

nly down side is it also got the xmass tree lights but luckely you can turn that bs off.

When you are driving wheelies then you want to use W because it allows you to turn tighter just by releasing the button, which you can't do using RRR.
