Hi @CitingPepper233 !

It seems that this is a common thing in other games right?

Thanks for your suggestion, our team will think about it :smiley:

I mean sometimes, but i think i didnt need to do it in AOE 2 and in Starcraft i also didnt really need to adjust.

A friend of mine told me that he changes the input method when he play games, maybe it is a solution in the meantime

yes but if i type then y and z is also switched, which is not a real solution if playing in multiplayer :wink: (just count the yโ€™s in the last sentence)
