ZvX Basic Zerg Fundamentals – Hotkeying
Everyone uses hotkeys, but we don’t all use them as quickly or efficiently as possible. Most zerg players know that to manually click every action takes too long, which is why we hotkey hatcheries so you can simplypress something like “4sd” to build a drone. Being able to quickly hotkey units and buildings to a control group ranks among the most important SC2 mechanics, especially for Zerg players who can actually hotkey morphing eggs into their main army control group. For example, assume you use 1 as your main army control group and you just built 4 sets of lings that you want to add to the control group. If you press 1 to select your main army, hold SHIFT and CONTROL then left click one of the 4 eggs – now you have all your units AND your eggs selected, so just press CONTROL-1 to add them to the control group. The faster you can do this, the more time you have to perform other actions!
Building new Zerglings? Learn how to add them to the control group immediately for convenience and saved time. A helpful drill: In the early stages when you’re not too busy, use a random control group (2 or 3) and start adding every new drone into the control group. So when you get to 10 supply, you should have 10 drones in the control group.
