    Pressing F10 instantly closes the game.

    So...

    Why was this implemented? :)

    The current game is so hostile towards new players. 1) Engineers are fodder for riflemen, 2) Tanks suck, are difficult to drive and armor is uber weak. I limit my list to two because I don't want to spend all day listing the items that have made the game less fun to play.

    i think f10 is just a source thing right?

    Wait do people really think armor is weak? Or is the gold standard tank old compo and everyone thinks of that as their dream tank? Feels easier to kill a tank in battlefield then in empires a lot of times...and as some of us found out recently that's no picnic either...

    Not to mention hitting F10 quits the game. (???)

    Also yeah I've accidentally bumped F10 before and it quit the game for me, but that was some time ago.

    F10 has been a thing since CSS guys. It's totally a source thing as Lazybum says.

    Regarding armour...I drove a comp BE med with 4 layers and it felt decent. Not sure how rough and tough it's been lately, but it didn't just fold. That being said I think some combinations strip fully loaded heavy's pretty quickly since some people were just getting pwned after running into some fire. Might just need a readjustment period though.

    Pretty sure this is a css thing for techs gaming at work.

    The issue with the armor is a mix of it being weakened, and engines being so unresponsive, and engines now having no torque. Gas used to have some decent torque - but it has been nerfed along with every other engine. So there are times an NF tank gets bumped and you literally sit there trying to move or turn and decide - bye bye heavy. BE - want to kill NF tanks easily - just bump them in front.

    BE tanks are more responsive - so you lose less. NF tanks are too long, and turn like shit.

    As for F10 - is that really an issue? I mean what key is near F10 that you hit it accidentally? I haven't programmed F9-F12 so maybe there is something, that doesn't bother me. Also it's great for trolling nubs. "PRESS F10 for quick tank repair!" lol

    F12 is for screenshots, that could be a problem. Or they have a mouse like mine and I rebound a couple of them to f10 and f11 thinking I never use these keys...derp.

    What are you talking about with engines? It's been the same for a long ass time. It might have changed back in like 2.4 simply because it doesn't mention patch changes that version, 4 years ago, but nothing recent has changed tank handling. It's always just sucked.

    f10 used to be fixed by mootant by hardcoding the f10 button to a hardware call iirc, someone seems to have gotten rid of his fix lol
