  • microskills & controls

    hey guys

    i really need your help improving my controls for playing chen&enchantress-like heroes. i really enjoy to play chen visage ench but i dont understand how to set controls for easier micros. i use only tab for select all units except the hero and f1 to select the hero but when i do i can only use 1 creeps skills and in order to use the others i have to select em manuelly which is very hard during big combats and jukes. i thought it can be handled by rearranging group options

    they look like this:

      select the units you want, and press ctr+ (lets say) f1. That will make those units to be selected by pressing f1. And so on.

      At least thats how I remember it.
      Spoiler:

          You need to check your settings and set a key for control groups, depends on how many you want.For example, I bind Visage like this:

          CTRL+1 - Visage himself (selected with 1)
          CTRL+2 - Both Familiars (selected with 2)
          CTRL+3 - Both Visage and the Familiars (selected with 3)

          You can cycle through selected units with tab.Hope it helped.

            what do you use for items? I use space 2 3 4 5 ` for items and leave 1 for grouping. (only works when you have only 1 unit, (helm, LD, etc))

                Well, i myself usually use q, w, space, tab (unless i have hero with units), capslock and the most important ~ button at corner of keyboard for fast reactions like bilnk.
                For microing most of the heroes can be taken care of by setting 2 buttons in your dota 2 options. That is set hotkeys for "select all units" and "select all other units". For me, i've set "1" for all units, and "2" for all other units. F1 is for my hero. So i can easily micro illusions, forge spirits, edilons etc.
                For heroes like meepo, you also need to set control tab hotkey. I set that one to "tab" (pretty much like every other player). If u're shaman, witch doctor, venom or Enigma, there is also the "ctrl" button which can help for units to attack while u channel your spells. That is you can use "ctrl + attack click" on hero and your ward units will start hitting.
                For meepo, i assign F1, F2, F3, F4 for each heroes. 1 for all units, 2 for all other units (all other units, i set it so i easily poof them on the main hero during blink attcks). Then i have 3 and 4 for occasional control groups like grouping them and sending to jungle for farming.
                For meepo, there is also afk farming possible. You select the control group, shift attack click them on a neutral camp, then shift poof click them, shift attack click on next camp and so on (watchout for ganks though). There are a lot more stuffs regarding the control grouping and microing (with/without control group) which i've not mentioned. And this is mostly how i play. So well, good luck
