Fleet commander without communications, deaf or mute players & macro usage?


Imagine fleet commanding without communications right?

Here is a scenario for you: You’re deaf or mute. There’s pilots waiting for orders from you. There is the broadcast system, which actually is pretty good, easy to use and fast…

…But that doesn’t cover everything. There are pretty standard practices for example: hold cloak, hold gate and so forth, not to mention complex targeting calls but let’s forget about those in this topic.

Macro usage in above example?
What if you were to use numpad for automatic words + enter with fleet chat? For example: pressing num1 = “Hold gate. Hold gate.” enter.

  1. You may not use your own or any third-party software, macros or other stored rapid keystrokes or other patterns of play that facilitate acquisition of items, currency, objects, character attributes, rank or status at an accelerated rate when compared with ordinary Game play. You may not rewrite or modify the user interface or otherwise manipulate data in any way to acquire items, currency, objects, character attributes or beneficial actions not actually acquired or achieved in the Game.

No because then suddenly “everyone” is deaf and mute (mostly FRAT people).

Just use shorts like H hold hold gate, J for jump etc.

Should be able to leverage fleet broadcasts to accomplish this.
