Don't think you can cycle through idle vills like that by holding down middle mouse button. That's one of my idle vill hotkeys and I've never been able to del vills so fast. seems like a macro

Ask yourself where you're spending your time.

- Is it on getting a villager / soldier / building to do something? Then it's a hotkey issue.

- Is it on getting to the right place of the map? Then it's a control group or scroll speed issue.

- Is it on deciding what to do? Then it's a knowledge - strategy issue.

You need to identify the problem before you can solve it. If you're bad at all of the above - you need to play more!

And be careful when deciding what your problem is. I see players saying: "Oh he's so fast!" when someone is microing well versus a mangonel. But even a slow player can micro well if (s)he knows how a mangonel shoots and how (s)he has to move. It often comes down to knowing what to do rather than doing it with lightning speed.

Some players like to throw their screen around a lot. It makes them look fast but it doesn't translate into useful actions per minute.

Some players are indeed doing things fast, but they pay in precision and end up hurting themselves.

Thanks Richard, What's the general preference of hotkeys for you expert players?
Have you made lots of personal modification from default. I understand once you get used the default hotkeys are as better as with some modifications, OR maybe i am wrong?
I know complete list of modifications can be exhaustive, so if I may ask. Just leave a reply please if you made modifications and you think this one in particular may help others like me.



ritschard is not an expert, not even 19++...
is he?
