# 1 Abandon Ship
02-10-2010, 08:15 AM
Can we please get a confirmation window or something when hitting this button. I know most will say that this is silly and why would you want to take the extra second to confirm but honestly, I think its happened 3 or 4 times now where my big fat fingers go to hit my evasive maneuvers or whatever ability is beside the Abandon ability and my friends all laugh uproariously because I go from full life with no one attacking me to dead.

Ahh right.

Why doesnt OP just move it to another slot then so its not next to evasive manu?

(I think you click hold right mouse button to drag and drop, stick it somewhere out of way with transwarp)

I'm for increasing the countdown to 5 seconds with the option of cancelling it before it reaches 0.

Configuring your hot keys/bar is an ancient art, full of patience, mystery and misclicks...but someday in some MMO you'll master it.

Because that would require effort/intelligence on his part. The first thing I did with this ability is move it far away from everything else.

Absolutely I could move it next to another common ability I use. I think I might key bind it to some weird key combo like alt+f4 or ctrl+alt+del. You know, something that nothing else uses.

Of course all joking aside I could just not put it on my bar. But then I would be depriving myself of the enjoyment of suiciding next to another ship seconds before I would have died anyways.
