Ive tried that before a lost a good chunk of my army lol. I like to pay attention to my army when attacking and macro where I can just queue up something with hotkeys. Only time I really take my attention away from something is if I need a key upgrade done ASAP (chrono boost) or if Im reinforcing units at a pylon. Missing key force fields is really really crucial sometimes.

No offense to BigFan but hes full of himself. His macro is horrible and even that is an understatement. I wouldn't even worry about micro, strategy's, apm until I got good macro. Even my macro is horrible and I'm high plat beating low/mid diamonds. I still suck though, you just have to man up and admit it lol. By the way spending your money is the core of what macro really is.....rofl you cant have good macro with horrible spending.

Yeah, it's a good way to pick up the other races without screwing over your ranking. I'm planning on getting a 2nd account too, although I'm going to ask one of my korean friends if they can get me a korean account.

The best tip that I can give you is when your money is getting high pull your army back a little bit and hit the hold position key and build unit/upgrade structures then. You can easily constantly produce units/upgrades/workers while in a battle but building unit producing strictures is tricky and more risky so you should back out if you have to make some strictures.

I do that sometimes. I stop at a Xel Naga Tower, spend my money then proceed to attack.

Yea it sure is at higher levels where your macro stops being an issue. I have never seen a silver level game where someone lost because of bad forcefields or some micro mistake.
