it's weird because im friends (more like acquaintances, kid is weeeeird) with a diamond/masters terran and we use hotkeys the exact same way, but we figured that method out totally independent of each other. Just felt natural to me for whatever reason
I feel like putting ebays on 4 would probably be good and free up a hotkey, yeah? You'll never accidentally hit tab or anything so hitting 4 will always give you what you want, and the visibility of checking on upgrades is there every time you do.
For the last week or so I've been practicing setting camera hotkeys on my main+nat and my opponent's nat every game...and I can never, ever make myself remember to use them after ~5 minutes. Much like vipers, I forget they exist.
I have no idea why you would want to hotkey your opponent's nat lol. An overlord off to the side accomplishes the same thing. More, in fact, because you get actual vision.
I use main, natural, and 3rd base, with the natural hotkey tending to cover my choke just as much as the hatchery. I'm only really using them for injects right now though, since that's all I can remember to use them for lol.
I have no idea why you would want to hotkey your opponent's nat lol.
Cause that's where I'll be attacking into usually. Sometimes I'll send hitsquads in that area that aren't hotkeyed or sometimes I'll have so many units rallied to the nat that when I double-tap my army hotkey, it goes to the middle of the map or something and not to the units that are at my opponent's nat which is where I want the camera to go.
Whyyyy does SC2 have to feel like playing poker? I just won my first two games of the day, both solid games vs plat Ts (first game I go hatch block of cc first into ling/bane/muta/ultra, macro not terribly, kill his 3rd, deny expansions pretty well, get ahead and stay ahead; second game he starts some weird cheese, or maybe he was just hiding a rax cause I scouted empty main, but I start super defensive but he never attacks so it transitions into normal game, he goes early blue flame hellions but I hold with queens and transfuses lol, I go roach/swarm host against his sick 2 base mech attack + failed attempt at a hidden base and hold easily). I then get the same feeling I'd have in poker when I win a few stacks early and my instinct is to book the win to avoid the sting of losing it back. WHY DO I FEEL THIS WAY? It's a ****ing video game. I never felt this way playing Call of Duty or w/e. So stressful. And these are unranked games, not even like I have ladder points to lose.
