Like so:

I don't mind the idea, but personally, I wouldn't ever do any actual numerical typing with my left hand, so the + and Enter keys are just taking up precious real estate where double the number of keys could be available (at the closest point to the main section of the board).

Or how about this?

MMORPG optimized



The macro toggle button is going to switch the numeric pad from standard (NUMPAD+Navkeys) to Macro keypad where the other 3 blanks will be for macro creating.

Personally I love the numpad on the right. Sometimes I need to hit enter and don't want to move my hand over to the main keyboard. So I just use my thumb and hit it. Without letting go of my mouse.

Now you're talking. Although I've gotten used to the right side aligned F keys, personally.

God! So much this. I can't tell you how many times I've done this, lazily, lol.

When it comes to MMORPGs its quickly apparent that the placement of the F keys where they are on a standard, is a hindrance. moving them in line puts them in a more fluid and natural position. This was a really big point when I wrote my dream MMORPG keyboard thread

If you noticed, pushed the spacebar a bit to the right too, and stuck in the Fn keybetweem the Alt CTRL and win key. This is purposely ment to push the Alt key to the right to use for layering hotkeys with your thumb+ main digits of your left hand.

I don't disagree with the logic in your layout. Not at all. Just saying I've personally developed the muscle memory on a standard layout. Also the F keys being spaced at every 4 is essential for me.

Also, I love the space bar size reduction. If you're like me, you use your right thumb on the space bar and realistically, it doesn't really need to occupy and space further left than the letter B (on Qwerty). This opens up the possibility for several thumb activated keys too. This is all too tempting. Maybe I'll write to the custom keyboard guy on GH.

for mmo'ing which I no longer do, I bind everything around my movement keys, which are ESDF and not WASD and used **** and alt modifiers. I played a Paladin and they had a ton of abilities, and i was serios about it and used a lot of macros and self cast shortcut keys. I never liked extra macro key keyboards, they were too big and bulky, but I dig that numpad on left side idea. It's honestly pretty awesome.

UGH did massdrop ship our poker 2's yet?

edit : Status: Arrived at Massdrop fulfillment center

I can vouch switching between my M17X, ducky shine, and model M, that muscle memory only takes a bit of experience get your mind to understand. then you'll shift automatically as you switch boards.

I use my ducky, M14X and M17X keyboards interchangably depending on whats going on. If i dont want to pull my m17x off its base, then i'll just use my m14X which is usually on my bed anyways. But i swap between my model M and ducky depending on what keyboard i feel like using.

Same thing happened with my naga mice when i got my HEX and was learning it to add to my naga epic. the grip and button hand position changes simply got automatically attuned to after using both mice over a period of time.

I agree we' as a community maybe should get together and try to get a company to make my MMO dream keyboard, putting to use the ideas of gamers and high end peripheral users.

I named the layout: Ansi MMORPG leftside macro
