How to effectively manage supporting and different types of units?



  • I see a lot of top level players handling a large force of Protoss (for example, but it applies to all races) units, and they take full advantage of Zealots, Stalkers, and Sentries abilities and strengths.

    How are they able to do this?

    If I set all 3 type of units to the same hotkey, I get lost while trying to tab through them (if I don't tab through them, zealots try to hit flying targets if I command the whole group to attack a unit), and If I set a different hotkeys for them I cannot effectively use the Guardian Shield as Stalkers and Sentries get separated as I advance.

    What are some tips to handle attacking and supporting units, while casting abilities at the same time in a push/defense?



  • Setting your regular forces to hotkey 1 and your spellcasters (like sentries) to hotkey 2 seems to be the common case, with the nexus on 3 (to be able to press 3e rapidly).
