Would be really nice if we could get better keyboard support. Some examples:

  • ESC closes dialogue windows
  • TAB moves focus to next input / button etc.
  • SPACE-BAR functions as click when buttons has focus.
  • ENTER is same as clicking "OK" in dialogues.
  • TAB, in for example :


    • Navigate (Keyboard N shortcut): First off; set focus on X-coordinate input. Then: TAB to get to Y-coordinates, and further TAB's to get to Go To and Cancel - or ENTER in X or Y input should complete action.
    • Tasks: TAB to move to next task. (Space-bar to complete/claim).
    • Troop selection. E.g. Attack, Yield: TAB moves to next input
    • etc.

  • ARROWS to navigate map. Here SHIFT etc. could be triggers for modes. Many to consider: faster scrolling, slower scrolling, move full screen in one go etc.
  • etc.

You would do a great health service for all your PC players, and as the scrupulous and honorable people you are I am sure you are going to find a way to improve on this.

Thank you!

Edit: And if you could fix the title that would be nice also, lol

Another example; Send resources. With keyboard support it would go something like this:

  1. «S» – Opens Market dialogue. This is already implemented, but there should be focus in the search input.
  2. «Foo» – We enter a nick of a clan member.
  3. «TAB» – set focus to first match in list. (Further tabs move to next if any)
  4. «SPACE» or «ENTER» – Opens the "Resources aid" dialogue with focus on Food for selected member
  5. «TAB» – We set focus on Lumber
  6. «10500000» – We enter 10,500,000
  7. «ENTER» – Resources are sent, (and focus kept on Lumber)
  8. «TAB», «TAB», «TAB» – We have focus on Silver
  9. «25000000» – We enter 25,000,000
  10. «TAB» – We have focus on "Send"
  11. «ENTER» or «SPACEBAR» – We activate that button
  12. «ESC» – "Resources aid" dialogue window closes
  13. «ESC» – "Market" dialogue window closes

yes please i really want a better way to navigate map as everything is clickable its a pain to left click hold and drag and is so outdated in browser games, arrow keys or  a compass style hold left button and map moves ( north,east,south, west )
