post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Hi I am just interested is anybody plays on RFDG keys instead WASD?
(Or I am the only one?)

EDIT: examples:

WASD
Attachment 129316

RDFG
Attachment 129315


+much more keys to be used on your left side (using entire keyboard)
-most of the keyboards have anti-ghosting only on QWEASD keys

That would drive me nuts.


I might try it if I had a proper table, but as it is, I just have the keyboard in my lap. Using WSAD actually helps me keep the damned thing in my lap.

I actually pried my arrow keys off ( the ones at the bottom right, just to the left of the keypad) and swapped them with my WASD just for uniqueness. lol.

Once i went WASD, i cant go to anything else D:

Well, I wouldn't agree. It is pretty much the same, just move your hand 3 keys to the right.
It is the same for me vice versa but I would miss more keys that I use with my pinkie.

I would have to change the crouch button, it would just feel different on my keyboard.

TFGH makes more sense (on mykeyboard at least) that RSDF because the R is just too far to the right to be comfortable.

I'm still stuck on the DOOM keyboard layout. Arrow buttons for me.

What key are you using for crouch?
EDIT: move al bindings 2 keys to the right. Easy!

TFGH is not good because your thumb would probably miss the space and it is not RSDF, it is RDFG (RFDG) so it is same as WASD but more to the right.
