finally started playing ladder after being dumped to bronze league. So far its 3-3 with the exception of 0-5 placement matches. Didn't know 6pool cheese works in bronze, tried it out on my last game coz the other games took awhile using d"Apollo's guide.

I still feel pretty rattled when there's a lot going on in the map, mouse control, hotkeys, macroing (minerals always go over 1k), and etc.
Should I continue playing/practicing through ladder or against AI custom games?

Playing vs AI will teach you nothing. Just play unranked if you want less pressure. what race do you play?

I disagree. AI is a great way to practice and refine your mechanics.

I play Zerg. I'm doing the "safe/defensive build" d'Apollo teaches. 14/14 - Pool/Ext or 15 Hatch. Sometimes I cheese with 6pool when I get bored. My mechanics start to suffer during mid game when I start to harass mineral lines with mutas while maintaining econ macro, expand, and lings. Sometimes I get confused of going roach nest or baneling nest first. I know there's no definite build though. Just that what I wrote above rattles me and messes up my mechanics by being nervous. LOL you heard that right. Nervous lol.

+1. In unranked, you will face opponents who do stuff noone would do in a normal game, therefore that teaches you nothing.
AI plays pretty much standard and identical every time, which allows you to refine your playing without it being ruined by a cheesing opponent.

Interesting idea about binding a control group hotkey to `, I think I'll do that. I use 1-3 for units, 4 for hatcheries, 5 for all queens, 6 for non-hatch queens. I also bind evo chambers to 0 and spire(s) to 9.

Backspace is rebound to Shift-Spacebar, which I use to inject.

High Diamond Zerg here. I'm weird when it comes to hotkeys. QWER are camera hotkeys. A is all hatches, 1-6 unit hotkeys. Space is Attack Move. Take some time to really stare at your hand when it's on the keyboard. That's the hotkey setup I came up with for maximum efficiency. If anyone on NA would like some tips/coaching or is Diamond+ and wants to practice feel free to msg or add me as a friend smile.gif.
