Hi.

I wonder if some uber pro 1337 PVP player is willing to share his favorite keys shortcuts he is using during combat. So I do not break my mouse ;)

I'm about as far from 1337 pvp as a pilot can get, but regardless...

Logically, if you're spending time, however little, moving your mouse to click a button, you are using your eyes to tell whether the mouse pointer is correctly positioned. These half second awareness losses may or may not add up.

Best practice would be to think of everything you could be pressing in pvp, and bind it.

V = D-Scan. Mash it. Mash it often.

You have no idea how this has turned my life around.

Post with your NPC alt main and not your main main alt!

I have that one keyed to my mouse.

Another good one is shift - click to toggle overheat on/off.

Excellent stuff!!

I guess I am almost a 'vet' by now. Hopefully not too bitter and managing to help more than I hinder. I build and sell many things, including large collections of bookmarks.

To me f1 will always be guns. Someone has to maintain some old-fashioned principles around here!

WINDOW Quality of Life bindings
Alt+1- Cargo Hold (custom)
Alt+A- Character Sheet (custom)
Alt+D- Directional Scan
Alt+S- Probe Scanner (custom)
Alt+2- Open Item Hanger (custom)
Alt+3- Open Ship Hanger (custom)
Alt+Mouse4- Notepad (custom)
Alt+C- Map (custom)
Alt+E- People & Places
Alt+V- Planetary Colonies (custom)
Alt+R- Regional Market (custom)
Alt+F- Ship Fitting (custom)
Alt+X- Training Queue (custom)
Alt+W- Wallet (custom)
Shift+S- Industry (custom)

COMBAT
Q- Approach
W- Orbit
E- Keep Distance
A- Align
S- Warp to
D- Dock/Jump/Activate gate
Ctrl+ left click- Lock Target
Ctrl+R- Reload
Shift+R- Return drones
Shift+Alt+R- Drones return and orbit
F- Engage Drones
C- Track
Ctrl+Shift- Unlock Target
Reconnect to Lost Drones- (Right click capacitor, choose option)

GENERAL
Ctrl+ Tab- Browse Window Menu
Ctrl+Alt+W- Close all windows
Close Active Window- Mouse4 (custom)
Alt+Q- Exit Station
Alt+Shift+Q- Quit Game

NAVIGATION
Alt+Shift+A- Broadcast: Need Armor (custom)
Alt+Shift+S- Broadcast: Need Shield (custom)
X and left click- Broadcast: Target
Ctrl+B- Save Location/Bookmark
Alt+Ctrl+Space- Set full speed
Ctrl+Space- Stop Ship

Modules
F1-F8 - Activate High Slot 1-8
1-8 - Activate Medium Slot (Custom)

I think you will find the close window option such a great enhancement to Eve in not having to close the tiny 'x' in every single window. The hanger bindings are amazing. Fear not, these will grow on you and you will hardly ever use the Neocom bar.

You can group guns and organize your modules after you undock like so:
High:F1 (turrets/missiles) F2 (scram/long point) F3 (web) F4 (prop mod)
Mid: 1: active rep 2:Ewar 3. cap booster or misc.
The 1-8 numerical bindings are essential for mid-slot activation in combat, also the re-grouping of your weapons and propulsion jamming modules together in the high-slot row make for easy sliding of your finger in rolling each into activation in the best order.

Not everyone will agree with my list, but it has made Eve much more manageable,the UI less restrictive, and allowed for combat to flow more naturally.

Wait, I can turn overheating OFF? What sorcery is this?
