Summary0025436: Orders being on key-up is eating a lot of my inputs
DescriptionThis is a personal thing so I'm not sure if I'm the minority or not but I generally don't stop moving my mouse as I'm clicking around if I'm shift queueing orders or something along those lines. Obviously with the new inputs, if I move slightly before my mouse raises back up it just won't register the order. I don't think I've ever played a RTS where a non-held click would only register on key-up. I understand this change was made for people who wanted to pan the camera with right click so they could hold RMB and drag the screen around without a move order coming out but maybe make it an option at least so that people who still pan with MMB can have clean orders.

Here is a video of me just trying to queue orders in a circle around a planet. I'm probably clicking 2-3 times a second except for the time where I show how I have to stop completely to guarantee I get the order.

I've never noticed that before, but now that you've pointed it out, it's REALLY annoying.

This would explain all those times where my ships didn't attack the thing I needed to attack, and why clicking on certain things is so finicky. I didn't know that the game only registers key up.

Ok so after some thought I realized that it being on key up is fine its just a matter of application. Its more so the precision aspect. I like the required precision of 20px for double clicking but the 60px requirement on right clicking can mess me up a lot and since I'm not panning with right click there is no upside to it for me.

AFAIK one person bound "Pan" to right click for no apparent reason. I'm not sure that such a weird config choice should be supported if it is a hassle for other people.
