Pametrada

Despite searching, I still don't know how to do this. As you can see, player [BRTMN]**** has asked for support, but the request is addressed to me, Pametrada in my Clemson, rather than the team in general.  I know people are going to laugh and point at me, but after all this time playing, I still can't work out how it's done.

Any help gratefully received. :Smile_Default:

If you look at somebody in game with the aiming reticule you can target your message like that.

 

So he was looking at you and pressed the F5 key.

 

You can do the same with F3 to direct attention to an enemy that needs to be focused, or a friendly player who needs support. Also F9 at somebody who is yolo'ing.

 

For Capture/Defend zones you need to be 'mouse over' that point on the mini-map.

 

Here's a handy guide to what the F-keys really mean:

You can also point the reticule at the green or red marker that hovers above the cap / defend, and then hit F3.

Also don't forget to press F11 to the friendly destroyer who launched torpedoes from the second line, or the odd HE slinging Iowa 

/s

 

In all seriousness though, as long as you ask in a polite manner you'd be surprised how helpful the community can be. :)

Also keep in mind that holding "B" will call up the quick commands panel (for lazy guys like me that only bother to remember F3 and F4). Once the quick commands panel is up you can issue different commands depending on where your reticule is aimed at, just like @DanSilverwing already explained.

This is how I tend to do my target call outs, hover over an enemy ship, press B and then flick up. It feels a lot quicker than fluffing about with the F keys.
