Don't forget about having Q and E for strafing.  It just feels natural, especially after having been trained to play that way for so many years. 
I thought I was the only one who did that.

ESDF 4 life!
ESDF is subpar compared to RDFG.  RDFG lets you set hotkeys on all sides,  while also giving you the bump on the F key if you need to go up to the numbers with your left hand.
Fuck this, I'm moving over to IJKL. That makes me 4 steps cooler than all of you.
Or HJKL if you are a Unix nerd.

Those are also the keystrokes to move your character around in the Rogue/Hack/Nethack/derivative games.

It's no fun to get run over by a zerg.  It's also no fun for your PUG to constantly get run over by the RR12 Alb gank group,  when you can't even field 2 healers.

Edit:  I bring up TF2 because of a couple nights on Team Red where you're staring down a Team Blue with Freshfruit, Mkvenner, Schild, Strazos, Nerf, Samwise, etc.  while you have 6 teammates who need to wear a football helmet to navigate their bedrooms.

These are good points, I was really speaking on more of a perspective of there being a downside to not regulating the populations on PvP.  If you've got a really nice team together you're hard to beat, but even a great team can be flooded by sheer excessive numbers of opponents, and lose through what's really no fault of their own.

I never understood why anyone would be happy using the wasd or rdfg or ijkl kinda keys when u got the normal Cursor-keys doing its job very nicely.
No mistyping to a key that is next to it.
No aching fingers due to the wrong placement of the keys.

pls explain why the wasd kinda keys are more used then the cursor keys are are made for movement.

From an mmo point of view, it's easier to reach the number- and F keys, using wasd than with the arrow keys.

Also, you get a few other available keys nearby, you can use for left and right strafing, targeting etc. :)

Also, wasd gives easy access to the most important key in any and every MMO<insert favourite letters> worth mentioning:

SPACE  (the jump key)

WASD leaves the right hand free to use the mouse.   Ohhhhh, I see.

Yes, I know I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough?

The roots of WASD are I believe due to the dawn of FPS games. It wasn't just WASD. It was those keys plus mouselook plus the row of number keys above it to quickly access weapons. These are all staples now of modern 3D MMOs, even appearing in EQ1 when they added the ability to activate spell gems with ALT+# combo.

Arrow keys work fine too, but are far away from the row of hotkeys most now use to activate abilities. Yes, some folks use arrow keys and the mouse to activate those hotkeys. I'd bet they don't PvP much though smiley

And for that matter, get rid of Q and E for strafing. Put strafe at A and D. If you turn in pvp or a raid with A or D rather than mouse you just fucked up. Q and E open up more options for needed keys.

Less ergo-gaming optimal keyboard hand-eye coordination talk more WAR talk. Anyone get a recent beta invite? I'm still hold on to hope and with my beefed up system and updated dxdiag.

Sweet.

If anyone manages to get an extra WAR key, and EA allows you to hand it off to a friend, I happen to have a fresh unused AoC key. If they don't allow it, forget I said anything.

Dear god! What is with you people just sitting on beta accounts. If you aren't going to test it, give it to me. Really. Seriously.

The trick, you see, is to sign up with a gazillion email accounts. Although that hasn't worked for WAR.

This account was actually earmarked for my friend when he gets back from his honeymoon, but hell, I already gave him a dyson vacuum cleaner.

That gift sucks... Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

I for one would never lord a beta key over anyone or attempt to trade it for something but would be a good tester and hard worker.

this working mythic?

Recently bought a Miele vacuum. Very impressive. In any case, if your friend is satisfied with the vacuum, then keep me in mind for that account.  Get off my lawn!
