Have this issue ever been examined?
It would be nice to have specifik abilities tied to number keys, say press “1” for “Quick Aim”, “2” for “Marked for Death” - especially if you could customize you keybindings to each of your soldiers like in many a computer roleplaying game.
Do you all just flail away with the mouse for every activation of an ability?
I have set up, so I press “Space” to “Activate ability” which by default I think is “Standby” (??) - then i press “F” (my own keybinding I think) to choose “Next ability” until desired one is ready and then press “Space” again to activate said ability.
Personally I think it is easier to make a few key-press than moving mouse all the time.
But then … it is also a lot of key-pressing. Because after “Standby” you have “Bash” which is an important ability for sure, but for snipers I use “Quick Aim” a whole lot more often!!! “Reload” is in between there as well iirc.
Maybe it would be a better option to have all the “Standard” abilities/those shared for all soldiers on the left off “Standby” just like “Evac” when that is available and then class-specific like “Qucik Aim”, “Dash”, “Jump” etc. as “Next abilites” - if anyone can follow my drift here … You are most likely to use class-specific ablities for a given soldier more often.
Bottomline - I think the Tactical UI can be greatly improved. With all the hours I spend on the game it would be really nice. Or are there some options I haven´t discovered??
