The “communication wheel” can be improved quite easily.
As an example, Insurgency Sandstorm has a similar system that’s far more responsive (no delay before displaying the wheel, it allows fast callouts).
It has 9 choices. And it’s controller-friendly as the game is on consoles.
Here’s a demonstration of the communications wheel in Insurgency Sandstorm.
You’ll notice how fast and easy it is to trigger the callouts.
Also the fact that the social wheel callouts are not in the same position as VT2’s equivalents is extremely frustrating and constantly messes with my muscle memory. There was no reason for them to change the position.
