[Interest Check] QWER kit, "gg" key, Addon kit
« on: Sat, 21 January 2012, 19:23:24 »
Hi everyone,

Starting an interest check to see if people would like to get a QWER kit. Tho it will mainly target most of you MOBA (Dota/LoL/HoN) Players.

I propose the following keys:
  • QWER replacement (Like WASD kits)
  • "gg"/ escape row key
  • LoL additional keys for your secondary spells and the shared keybinds:

The 6 keys at the bottom go over the 'D' and 'F' and the ping, retreat and recall icons go over the 'G', 'V' and 'B' key respectively.
(I have left out some spells from the kit as they are less commonly used and would raise prices significantly)
[/LIST]The 3 bullet points/parts will be sold separate and the keys made by Doubleshot with ABS.

This is the colorscheme I propose for the "gg" + QWER + Extra kit

Please let me know your opinions by filling out this quick survey. And maybe post here to give it a bump.

Also, I am looking for someone to handle collecting Money and doing US shipping. Please PM me, if you're interested.

In for 2 sets.

Is it possible to get the 'LoL' set in R4 as well.

I popped the hood and replied: "Yeah... But that turbo does."

Given this is in interest check, I don't know if it'll make it in time. Also Haven't checked if the images can be done with SP.

Interested, but I have changed the hotkeys I use for lol to be one row lower :(. So my spells are asdf and my flash and stuff are cv. Maybe we can get it so the rows are interchangeable or something :D

Don't think it will be possible. A shame tho. = (

Interested in 1-2 sets. I don't really like the gold but I guess it's supposed to match with the LoL theme.

Oh, it's not the gold that's throwing me off. It's actually the darkness of the colors. If the blues, reds, and greens were slightly lighter I think it would look great. Of course its up to everyone else as well.
Is it possible to make the recall light blue on white, ! ping red on white, and the fall back ping an orange/yellow on white?

Wouldn't that cost a lot more? If it does not, that's a great idea.

Depends on how much brighter the colors are in your mind. The colors I have right now aren't necessarily going to exactly the same when plastics are picked.

How about white on blue for the "gg" key, for consistency.

It depends on how many people want to buy it.

Tell your LoL friends about it, the more people who buy them the cheaper they'll be ;).

I would suggest maybe a lighter shade of blue.  Also, I think it would be pretty cool to have an image for your ultimate.  Not sure what, but maybe have it look different from QWE.

About the image for an ultimate,

It is possible, but I don't have an idea for it. I did think of just writing "Ulti" on it. But in my opinion it took away from the aesthetics.

Quote
I feel like these could/should vary in color.  Yellow key for retreat, green for ping, purple(?) for recall.  I'm new to the forum and key customizing in general, so if any of these requests seem a little ignorant of the cost/possibility just let me know.

Before I put the IC, i tested out some basic colors for VGB keys. I personally find that green barely fits in as it is now, but when I used other colors, It seemed to clash a lot and not look nice. The idea of changing each of those 3 keys to a different color is possible and will cost the same, but I personally think it starts making things less pleasing to look at.

All this is open for discussion guys, do speak up.

Have you thought of changing QWER to QWERTY instead, it looks nicer IMO :) hehe

The idea is to highlight the keys you use in a MOBA game. And the hotkeys go over QWER just like the WASD kit

Extra keys
1 - 6 row
P for shop shortcut
(Other shortcuts dont deserve a keycap as their rarely used)

Suggestions on design
AZER version for French players (doesn't hurt to check interest)
Light blue recall cap
Green retreat ping cap
Red ping cap
Switches tried so far
Cherry MX Red Blue Black Clear
ALPS White Black (fake)Blue

I like the idea even if I don't play those games too often but don't want to miss them.

Love the Blue-Red-Green combo.Count me in and I filled the survey.

I will show this GB to people that play MOBA games and have mech keyboard to have more people here interested.


I enjoy your SVG work :D

Not convinced about the azer personally, what would include the 1-6 row ?
