They are, but, they must be done correctly, as in drop it when least expected and make sure they don't see it if possible otherwise chances are it'll be intercepted

Such a bad night tonight, gone 0/4 T_T Lost to proxy gates, got a disconnect, expanded on JB and lost against a 3gate even though I 3 gated myself and even though I thought I just won PvsT, my opponent gg'd to waste some time to recover :facepalm:

Hey guys, So I've picked SC2 up a bit, I'm still sticking with my 50 practice games (down to 28-29) And I'm not fairing that well (Only won about 7-8 games :/ )

I've been watching Husky and Day9's channels. And I can't figure out how they move so fast (they move DAMN fast).

Obviously speed is a huge factor so I was wondering if you guys knew any helpful hotkeys to help a noob out

Practice league is slower is why. Might be best to just forgo the whole thing since it only makes you slower really since you are more accustomed to that.

I meant how fast they macro. I can't macro as fast as they can and now I know they're even faster than that -.-

I'm no different, watched a 2600 diamond friend play and could wonder nothing else but.. HOW?

His left-hand control is just far more developped than mine, yet all he'd tell me to do is practice. And I can't blame him, because the only key to getting better is time.

So there's not super useful hotkey? No Ctrl+q = win?

All I've got so far is the Ctrl + #'s for hotkeying armies and F1 for idle workers.

Keyboard shortcuts annoy me because I just know it's going to take ages for me to learn them, I'm aware that I need to (or at least SHOULD) learn them. But in the heat of battle I can't exactly look and find out what they are.

I would imagine that consistency is the key, as in sticking to the same hotkey setup, playing a lot, and developing good macro. Eventually using the hotkeys will become second nature and you will be able to macro like those diamond players without consciously thinking about it.

Takes a couple days at most to learn them. All you have to do is whenever you are going to go click a button, force yourself to hover over it, check the hotkey, move your mouse away and hit the key on the keyboard. You'll learn quickly enough that way.

Also, Shift+# adds to the control group. Middle mouse button lets you scroll around the map. Backspace bounces around expoes.

No one's expected to naturally use hotkeys with 100 zerglings bearing down on you. But in the calm of base-building, for any actions you do frequently (ie, build worker) look it up.

I didn't know about the backspace hotkey though; that's useful.

ALSO: If your "advisor" just alerted you to something, such as your troops being attacked, you can center on it right away by pressing spacebar.
