Im used to mouse edge of the screen to rotate, but i do use Q and E occasionally if the situation arises, eg if im about engage but i want 1 last quick view of my surroundings. Tried middle mouse button and hated it.

Thanks.  Pretty much the same except I don't use the middle mouse button

I alternate between the mid mouse button and the screen edges.

The option was there before so we had a choice. I used screen edges to rotate.

Middle mouse button to tilt is fine.

Voted! ;)

 

The statistic that shocks me is that only 50% of the voters know what edge panning is. :O

Saying that, it is to be expected if you've never played an RTS game before.

Edge pan causes me too much angst in TW as I quickly try to draw boxes around troops and end up spinning the camera, Q&E every time.

I use the controls that I'm used to from playing the "classic" Total War games: so using a combination of keyboard presses  and middle mouse button. However in Arena I only use to move the camera with the edge, as opposed to rotating it in the Total War games. But I mainly use WASD camera movement + middle mouse button camera "classic" rotation (so I can also rotate the camera down and up).
