Yeah, the confirmation to exit is pretty annoying.  Actually, instead of adding a "holding down the A button," having a confirmation button for "entering" the queue like the one for exiting it would probably be better.

 

Yep, better to be able to leave quickly than forcing everyone to an extra step for something that is the norm (entering a battle).

unnecessarily hostile response to something you likely won't see and if you did could ignore it as wg would never make it mandatory. 

 

 

Calling someone a troll because they don't get the response they want is indeed childish but your OK with that.  Got it.  

 

Based on your perception of the word hostile one can successfully argue that killers response was hostile.  Had he generated a reasonable response and not with the troll statement he would have been met with a like response.   

 

How many people in this post alone has he called a troll because their opinion differs?  He has a known history of quickly calling people trolls who disagrees when he can't invalidate their opinion or overcome their logic.  But that's not hostile, right?

It's passive aggressive at worst. Childish? Probably. But since when has being childish stopped anyone here

Just curious, but If you say calling him childish and telling him to grow up is hostile why are you not calling him out for being hostile when he attacks people by calling them trolls for disagreeing with him.  A bit hypocritical and a double standard, no?

YES, PLEASE!

 

So annoying if you misclick and just go into battle altough you are not prepared at all (no consumables, no equipment etc.). Happened to me more than once ...:deer:

 

 

Alternative: Minimum queue time, so chance to revert your mistake?

You're the only one going on about this being an optional change (neither the OP nor Ezio have suggested this), and WG strongly dislike adding options to the game. Very strongly, in fact.

 

I have yet to see any reason for it that cannot be solved by a smidgen of better awareness by the player. 

 

Ok.....Make it an optional change that way those that would like to press and hold A can opt to have it and those that feel like waiting an extra 2 seconds to enter the queue is annoying don't have to. The best of both worlds! Problem solved.

Think it through mate....

 

You hold the A button and right when you enter the game, you notice your tank ain’t rigged.  You hold the A button and right when you enter the game, your buddy wants to check his Ops.  You hold the A button and right when you enter the game, nature calls.  Everything you listed will still happen, just three seconds later amigo.

 

 

The one thing that has happened on several occasions above and beyond those mentioned is setting the controller down and my finger hits the A button accidentally or the controller slides in between the sofa cushions depressing the A button. The items you mentioned may not be completely eliminated as you note but the likelihood of catching the mistake before being launched into a battle are greater then if A instantaneously throws you into a battle. None of these items happen often, but if there was a safeguard against them happening that can avoid the unexpected entry into a battle then I am for it, especially if it can be optional.

If WG are willing to add another option, which I do not think they are, then I see no issue with that.

Default should be how it is currently, to avoid disrupting the majority of the playerbase.

 

I still think it's a pointless idea with no real benefit, but we have worse ideas in-game already.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

can you give one legitimate complaint for an optional confirmation that you can ignore shouldn't be implemented? I will never understand why any one who wants things you don't should deal but wg should listen when it's something you want

 

At first I was just against making concessions to stupidity, but now I specifically just don't want specifically you to get anything you want.

I have thousands of battles fought and I can probably say that once or twice I have accidentally entered a match that I didn't want to, I don't think it needs fixing. :)

yea, like tanks that will climb 90 degree angle walls even though you are pushing-pulling the joy stick in the other direction.

I don't think so. If you want to hold down the "A" button to start a battle, play WOWL, that is how they do it when platooning.
