Question...how exactly do you mouse turn? Noob question I know but I tried the right click + left click and it feels so awkward and uncomfortable. What was I doing wrong?

i only right click and move forward with my w key. A and D are strafe left and right and i unbind s because you wont need it. i found this was easier for me. also as you get used to it, increase your camera rotation speed (increases the speed at which the camera rotates with the right click turning).

Edit: camera rotation speed is in preferences and under controls i think, could be wrong

Ah I see. That is a improvement over what I was doing. Feels smoother too. Thanks.

I don't think I ever let go of the mouse-button... except for selecting a far-away-teammate to intercede. *ponders*

Also: good keybindings are super important. And different for everyone.

Me for example have al LOT of keybindings... and by now they are about the same in every mmo:
1
Shift+1
2
Shift+2
3
Shift+3
4
Shift+4
5
Shift+5
F
Shift+F
G
Shift+G
R
Shift+R
Shift+Q
Shift+E
H
Shift+H
T
Shift+T
^
Shift+^
<
Shift+<
Shift+X
Shift+C
Shift+V
F1
F2
F3
F4
Shift+F1
Shift+F2
Shift+F3
Shift+F4
F5
F6
F7
F8

And have programmed my extra mouse buttons to:
Strg+Shift+'
Strg+Shift+
Strg+Shift+0
Strg+Shift+9
Strg+Shift+8
Strg+Shift+7
Strg+Shift+-
Strg+Shift+.
Strg+Shift+,

And some skills I just click. Like "mail-droid" or such.

Combine keybinding with mouseturning and you play a whole different game than before.

Put the most essential keys to those keys you can find very fast. For example escape abilities on the first keys : F1, F2, F3, F4 . You can press them then without having to think which key is where, which is good for beginners.

Stick with it, you'll be glad you did when you're loling circles around KB turners.

It also helps to increase the max distance of your camera and zoom out a bit. Let's you see more of what's around you and gives you better awareness.

This ^. Btw i'm pretty sure he's talking about modifying the .ini file which i really think everybody should.
And welcome to the next level. Mouse turning was a huge step up in how i played. Helps alot if you get a logitech g600 or something similar. g600>naga
