Go left, Go right, Retreat/Comeback.

And we should be able to direct it towards Player.

By pointing camera towards him and issuing chat command.

He should get the chat command in different colour so that he should know it was directed towards him.

Sending it to him alone would be easier. 

Eg- platoon chat

Yes sending to him alone is the idea, but if not in different colour he may not distinguish it. And think it as common chat.

Chat Shortcut Actions (I'd like to see added):

Retreat: In a situation where you're a medium and half of your MT team goes to flank on one side where an over numbered amount of enemies take over at an increasingly fast pace in battle, a retreat shortcut in chat would get them the signal to fall back at once! (In the mirage map is where this idea came up quickly for me.) 

Additional Help To Another Player/Teammate: Well here what I'm actually trying to say is that not only you can send a signal that initiates YOU need help, but also another person needs help! Think about it, another teammate in danger and you had nothing to do in that situation except send a shortcut in chat saying, [Player -Player Name- Needs Support!] so another one of your powerful teammates nearby can cover that mortally damaged tank out of danger safely.

On My Way: Whilst another teammate of yours need major support/cover and needs help from any incoming danger while it's slowly backing off to safety, you can do a quick shortcut of [On My Way -Teammate Name who is in Danger-!] So they know that you are not playing 'camper' and just ruining the game for everybody. But this shortcut feature can only be used when the teammate who needs help sends the 'Help!' Signal to the team.

 

Uneccessary but Liking Clan Shortcut Actions!(It would be nice to see them in-game, literally, nice!)

Good Job: After a beautiful shot at a difficult moving target that is now destroyed, just give a nice shortcut to that teammate to say they've done great.

Try Harder Next Time: Failing after an easy immobile enemy target that got away, it's not the best thing, but at least encourage your teammate to have better luck next time.

 

Also, like what Dr_Jedi said,"He/she should get the chat command in different colour so that he should know it was directed towards him/her." I think that is an excellent idea, pointing your camera towards that teammate you want to direct your chat command to is very useful so that person knows and gets the idea you're telling to him/her.

 

That's all my ideas folks! It's your turn now:).

Honestly this is just two chat shortcuts I would like to see:

 

Follow me!

Retreat!

 

However just like the PC version, you have to point your gun at your ally to be able to do that.

 

It would be nice to get some minimaps markings in the near future(highlighting certain areas like A3, D6)

Come now. Surely we should add shortcuts for what people type in chat most often to save them time.

 

"Noobs"

"Noob team"

"Noob <tank>" - I guess this one would need the user to be pointing at the tank...

 

 

PS: I'm not serious. :trollface:

Make the chat shortcuts like shell slot, push the chat and made it three category, 

Team chat : attack, reloading, affirmative, negative, cap base, help

battle chat : (right/left or hill/town) , hold, rush, push, retreat

other chat : nice job, good game, teamwork! Or anything.

 

just my opinion,sorry for my bad english.

I think they should add the sections on the map. 

also I think they should add the time that it is taking to reload your gun

I've got a serious one.

 

How about one to say "I'm spotted"

 

A useful thing for people to report, especially if no enemy has been spotted.

Nice one Carvin. It would be nice addition for random battles. For clanwars and training rooms, people would be using voice comms like Discord or TS, I believe.

 

Nevertheless nice suggestion.

Yeah, pretty convenient and if I'm not wrong it is in the PC version too.

I'm not sure it is, but I fairly sure I have heard those call outs in Quickybaby videos I've watched. I thought it w's a useful callout.

I hope to see an AFK button, which i can tell my teamates who is away from keybroad.

This is how it works, turn to potential AFK teamate, and then press that AFK button, he will be highlight as a afk teamates.

After 30 sec, if he does not reponse by pressing "No"  button, he can be attack by teamate.  Lol.

I guess this is just a dream, it might be difficult to code. Lol.
