I am serious about arena and we noticed that when we turned off our PTT buttons that there was a delay in what we said to what our partner actually heard. This is TERRIBLE in arena where every split seconds counts.My PTT button is ctrl which is the default. And with my hand positioning it is very easy to press the button with the bottom left part of my palm since its the bottm left corner of the keyboard....so the palm of my hand is used for PTT leaving my other fingers to hit keybinds... i naturally did this, anyone one else find it ergonomically effective?

Granted, I have slightly larger than normal hands (the type the the original XBox controller was designed for, I find it comfortable =), but it sounds like yours are small. When I'm in base WASD, the tip of my pinky is naturally on the L-Shift. The top of my palm is hovering over the wrist rest. So I find it much more natural to hit L-Cntrl with my pinky.Granted, I also use ~ as my PTT key.

elven, i dont have small hands!!!! lol yes when i put my left hand on WASD my tip of my left pinky is right on the control.... butttt if you move your hand up to reach your 1,2,3,4,5,6 buttons(which is what i use for my rotations, including keybinds of r,t,f,and g,) you will see what I mean. i use it so I can PTT while I'm in rotation and instead of moving with wasd i will move n rotate with my char with mouse...
