"For example, a lot of player feedback has mentioned how minimap pings can have a variety of meanings."

 

At least that bit made me laugh. Good comedy writing. :great:

There should be a button to tell players they suck

I wish for below commands also:

 

  • Have a nice game/good hunting
  • Good job/good kill
  • I am flipped (i need help doesn't give the exact mean)
  • I am spotted
  • I will spot (be ready.to shoot)
  • Need spot in that area

Too confusing ... people rarely pay attention to maximap ... it will be information overload ... simple F-key shortcuts are more useful in my view, I already have full hands driving my tank and with games lasting 45 seconds these days you do not even have time to aim properly and to squeeze a fart here and there ...

This could maybe, just maybe be useful in CW and SH.
Might be useful in a platoon where ppl play without comms as well. 
I have however no use for Steve the IS-7 driver with his 39% win-rate pinging all over the mini-map to let me know where he's gonna go to die.

More unnecessary additions to the game, as if randoms listen to things like that to begin with, however at least its not breaking the game so that's ok, i guess

Didn't you pay attention? A number of these pings can be made on the terrain, so people ignoring the minimap will also see them!

Second that!

And maybe some macros for after the match:

- good game

- that was tough

- deserved win

- deserved loss

 

 

also, WG should make each macro accessible by separate hotkey, even if they don't assign a default one. Some people have weird keyboards or mice that let them configure dozens of hotkeys.

at least the players with a brain listen most of the time in my case, for the other players you have to assume that you are trying to communicate with monkeys.

I've been thinking for a while that this should be a priority to improve. It is really a game that requires cooperation to win, but lacks proper tools for doing so. Glad to see that it is being worked on!

It's a step forward to improve the lack of communication in randoms and for a better coordination.

Give it a try on the next CT server and let us know what you think :)

That's a very good suggestion, thank you. You still have the chat for some of these commands (begging someone to come and push you :teethhappy:)

Make sure you try this feature in the next CT server!
