The build grid shows unbuildable terrain as yellow allowing for easier wall offs. Enabling this setting will show a grid whenever you attempt to place a building.
The grid shows unbuildable terrain and gives you an idea of how much space there is betweeen your buildings. The build grid makes walling off and base planning much easier.
For example, as Protoss you need to leave a one square gap in your wall for units to pass through. Enabling this setting will help you set up your base just a little better so give it a try.
How do you set up your game? If so let me know in the comments below! This article was a collaborative piece between ZiggyD and Ramzdale, a big thank you to Ramzdale for his help!
If you are an aspiring writer and would like to write for LearningSC2 let me know! If you are keen to improve your play, then you should try and take advantage of what the Shift key can do for you.
Before we move onto all of the nifty things that you can do with Shift lets take a brief moment to understand the mechanics of what it actually does.
There are a few situations where it acts a little differently but this is its main function. So in that situation it acts in reverse to its normal function.
Shift can be combined with other Keys. Using the Shift key with other keyboard keys can produce some interesting results. Use this frequently to ensure that all of your units are bound to a control group.
Hands Free Scouting. You can queue up multiple move commands with any unit by holding the Shift key and right clicking for each point you want the unit to move to.
You can even do this via the mini-map! Attack-Move Scouting. This is merely a variation on the previous Shift technique. Instead of queueing up multiple Move-commands you can queue up multiple Attack-move commands.
You can use this technique to find and attack any stray workers or Overlords around the map. Queue up multiple construction orders to quickly set up a base as Protoss.
Queuing Buildings. You can tell one worker to build a heap of Pylons at once or you can easily place different buildings such as a Pylon, a Nexus and 2 Assimilators Instant Expansion, just add water!
It works the same way for Terran, but much more slowly due to the worker having to physically build each building.
Unfortunately for Zerg each Drone can only morph into one building. Automatic Return to Mining. This is most useful for Terran, quite useful for Protoss but, again sadly, of no use to Zerg.
Once you give the order for a worker to construct a building hold Shift and Right-click a mineral patch. Once your worker is finished building he will return to mining with no downtime.
The following uses of the Shift key can be extremely useful but usually only in a very specific circumstance.
Take the time to learn the ones that are relevant to you Race and play-style. Easy Siege Tank Movement. Using Shift you can tell a tank to un-siege, move, and re-siege on arrival.
Moving your Tanks in this way allows you to leap-frog your tanks towards your opponent much more easily. A tank army pushing forwards using this technique can be quite hard to engage.
This technique allows an entire group of Stalkers to Blink across a gap one at a time without leaving any behind.
This is an awesome technique to watch and even better to execute. Overlord Creep Highway. Spine Crawler, Hydra, Queen pushes are only possible with a fast creep highway.
You have probably watched Fruitdealer or another top Zerg player use Overlords to make a creep highway to their opponents base, but if you have attempted it before you probably realised how fiddly it is to tell each Overlord to go to each point along the highway.
However, there is a much faster and easier way to do this. Select a large group of Overlords and tell them to generate creep.
Now send the entire group to the first point on your highway. Now, holding Shift, de-select one Overlord and then tell the rest of the group to move to the next point.
Continue for each point along the intended highway. It only takes a few seconds to set this up and the result is that the entire group travels along the highway leaving one Overlord behind at each point.
Using the patrol command will cause a unit to patrol between its current location and the selected one. Using Shift you can tell a unit to move to a location and then patrol from that location.
You can use this technique to easily tell a unit to patrol between two of your opponents potential expansion locations. Ever notice that your melee unit stops attacking the constructing SCV when it moves?
Simply hold shift and tell your unit to attack it multiple times. Your unit will now follow it whenever it moves. Rally to Your Units.
You may already employ the tactic of attaching a rally point to a unit so that your forces stay together even when you move your army.
But what happens when that unit dies? You lose your rally point. This can be especially painful when you lose a battle because half of your units are back in your base.
To avoid this you can select a building, hold Shift and Right-click on multiple units. Now if one of those units dies, your newly built units will still move to your army.
Unless of course your entire army dies. As you can see there are a lot of useful and creative uses for the Shift key.
I am sure that there are even more creative uses that are yet to be discovered. Do you know of any other uses for the Shift key? If so let me know about them in the comments below!
The function and control of the mouse in Starcraft 2 is natural and easy to pickup for new players. In fact the entire game can be played with just the mouse hand.
However, to do so limits your options and efficiency in the game severely. How so? The keyboard allows you to look at one thing and do another.
Lets suppose that this battle ended with both teams losing equal amount of troops, who would be ahead?
Well, the person using their keyboard to do all of those things of course! Learning to use the keyboard effectively is essential to becoming an efficient player.
You will also find that the keyboard has other useful functions such as finding idle workers, queuing commands and using abilities.
Ok so I have sold you on why you should be using the keyboard. But getting comfortable with using it can be very difficult for newer players, I myself have had a lot of difficulty with this in the past.
But with some thought and good practice techniques you will be comfortable with using the keyboard in no time. This is the starting point for learning to use the keyboard as it is the most simple and easy to learn.
Build command hotkeys are letter keys which represent one of the options in the bottom right corner of the screen for the building of units and structures.
If you mouse over one of these buttons take note of the keyboard letter that represents that button.
It is good practice to learn all of these hotkeys even if it is for something you only use once a game. Why is it Important to Do This?
Once you learn a hotkey something interesting happens, you no longer have to think about it. This is because of the way muscle memory works, your fingers remember what to press and your mind is free to think of more important things, like what your next move is.
Day describes a method in his Daily which I have used with great success. It is a really simple and a very effective way to train your fingers and develop that muscle memory.
Basically, every time you do not know a hotkey for something, mouse over it but do not click it. Instead, read which hotkey it is, move you mouse back to the centre of the screen and press the hotkey.
Using this very simple method you will find your fingers will quickly learn which button to press and you will start doing it without thinking.
Unit hotkeys are very similar to build command hotkeys in that they each represent a button in the bottom right corner of the screen.
These hotkeys include unit abilities and unit commands such as stop, hold and attack. Being able to execute these commands quickly is vital to effectively controlling your units.
Why is it Important To Do This? Battles in Starcraft 2 happen very quickly, in the one or two seconds it takes you to move your mouse, select an ability and move your mouse back to the screen, much of your forces could already be dead.
Learning hotkeys allows you to keep looking at the action and use abilities or issue commands much more quickly. What is the Best Way to Learn This?
For ability hotkeys the same technique as above works quite well, although I suggest doing this in practice matches. However, there is no trick to learning the unit command hotkeys like attack, hold and stop.
Only by practicing these can you commit them to muscle memory. Thankfully, there is not many to learn, and once you are familiar with them you will start to learn what you can do with them.
But we will save that for another article. If neither layout feels comfortable SC2 supports custom hotkeys as of patch 1.
Getting Familiar With Control Groups. Control groups are units or structures that are bound to your numerical keys 1 through to 0 , once bound pressing the corresponding number key will select those units or structures.
You first create a control group by selecting a unit, structure or group, holding the Control key and then pressing the number key you wish to bind them to.
Once a control group is created you can add any unit or structure to that group by selecting it, holding the Shift key and pressing that same number.
Control groups are easy to learn but difficult to master. Control groups allow you to select a unit or structure without first moving your screen to it.
They also allow you by tapping the control group twice to quickly jump the screen to any bound unit or structure. Say your main force is bound to control group 1, and reinforcements are bound to control group 2.
Your main force engages the enemy and you wish to bring your reinforcements to support them. Control groups also allow you to build units from structures without moving the screen by simply pressing its control group number and pressing the units hotkey.
You can then even rally your troops to wherever you want! I will not discuss particular control group setups because it is important that you play around with different setups and see which one suits you best.
I am constantly changing and refining my control group setup and I have a different setup for each race. This will do two things: get you more and more familiar with your setup and ensure that you do not forget or miss any unit.

Profile image while representing Mkers. I find his playstyle very impressive, because in contrast to most other Protoss players, who rely a lot on all-ins and timing attacks, he plays more defensively and tries to make the games last longer, to achieve victory through his better understanding of the game and his mechanics.
