Scythe, are you ever going to finish this guide? It is really good, and would be convenient for me if I could just point to it when someone asks how to play.

Uh sure, if I get time.

I really am busy at the moment. ID2 is about to be finished, but there is some annoying stuff keeping us back and ... we kinda need to deal with it lol.

Nice guide :D will help reduce my feed...
hotkeys I use:
1: Builder
2: Hunter/Dropoff (only one is needed at any given time, and if I need to woodbase when i have a hunter then I just put dropoffs in 5+ area)
3: Workers
4: Wood research(pool, robo, ebay, etc.)
5+: advanced research center
good/bad/can be improved?

Whatever works for you. I put drop-off, wood research, and gold research on the same hotkey and just tab between them.

I also usually leave a hotkey empty for either a Hallucination, or in case someone goes AFK while Golding or something and wants me to keep them alive.
