    New morph hotkey system vs Old hotkey morph system

    Post by ReeferFist on Thu Jan 15, 2015 5:12 am

    I enjoyed the old Hotkey system better: (Y) to morph & (1234567890..etc) to choose color

    don't get me wrong I do like the options the new system has to give: (E) to Morph >sub menu >color selection

    ~but~

    I enjoyed the fast play and quick morphing options of the 2 step system (Y)
    I am not a fan of the new (E) morph 3+ step system, its lengthy and to many buttons must be pressed.

    please consider bringing back the old morph hotkeys

    The new hotkeys are better for the average player. Period. Most people don't bother with colors and the extra features. The new system works better on a general level because you can morph quickly into the last marine you killed by hitting e twice. Its more efficient. If you want to play with the colors, one extra button press is worth it to ensure the rest of the system is easier. There's always more options if you are willing to learn them.

    E+E for last known color is nice

    but couldn't the old system have done that with Y+Y

    the extra step is a hassle when it comes to quick color selection and i find the system cluttered

    It did, for a short time have Y-Y as the method, but Y is a much more inefficient hotkey setup. Most players will agree that E is a much faster, easier keypress than Y. Essentially the hotkey migration:

    Made the easy stuff easier, made the harder stuff harder. So if you used the colors, your life just got harder. If you used one method and thats it, or are newer to the game, your life got easier. With a lack of experienced players the new hotkey system is the better one as it tailors to the players.

    I just factored in~ having a double button system, this can possibly decrease the amount of accidental morphs while typing. but i love my colors
