How do I make chat shortcuts? Like  a key I can press to send a message to the team. It's difficult to type 'stop camping!!' or ' what in the world are you doing?!?!'

 This would make it easier to send common commands. I play on PC. please help.

And just to make it clear, I mean keyboard shortcuts.

Go to settings, there is a panel/screen with all key-commands. You can see them there or reassign them to different keys. It's under the sprocket icon, bottom in the left menu in your garage.

I don’t think you can create your own messages and attach to a shortcut like the OP wants can you?

I’ll have to have a look on my Mac and Windoze laptop...

Oh right. i misread.

 

This is something i found for WOT PC. 

 

http://forum.worldof...hat-autohotkey/

 

It uses a third tool to bind keys to messages and sends then to wot. The same would work for wot blitz.

It requires a bit of tinkering, but it should work. There is also a Auto Hotkey version for Mac OS.

 

No idea if anything similar is available for mobile devices.

So there is no in-game option for this?

Too bad. I wouldve liked to have a hotkey for 'stop camping!!!'

And just to make it clear, I mean keyboard shortcuts.

Download and install Phrase Express. Once active, it will work for every app in Windows, so exit once you're done. 

It's a bit slow to transform the shortcut into the sentence, but still faster than typing it whole. I have made instructions for the team, greetings and banter (and yes, insults). The hardest part is to make a shortcut that's fast and memorable and unlikely to come up as part of a word, because if you shorten, say, "Churchill" to Ch, the next time you type "Team to church", it will come out as "Team to ChurchillurChurchill".

 

A few examples:

AT> = All team >>>>>>>>>>>> please

DNGT = Do not go town

DNGA = Do not go A

RTST = Red team is in town (I could not use RTIT because of "partita" = "match" in Italian)

TATB = Turn around!! They are behind us!!!

TXMT = Thanks for saving my bacon mate

APWQ = Are you part of some welfare quota?

LQET = You lower the IQ of the entire team
