  • [Suggestion] Control group order

    Coming from a Chen player, it's quite annoying how control groups work sometimes. For example, if I control a Centaur, Troll and an Ursa, and I group all of them to one control group, they'll always be in the order of - Chen, Centaur, Troll, Ursa. Even if you select Chen, Troll, Centaur, as you shift add new creeps, it'll default to the original order of Centaur --> Troll --> Ursa.

    Now this is slightly different if I select each creep separately - if I make control group 2 consisting of only my creeps, I select Troll, then Centaur, then Ursa. However, although the control group will start with Troll selected, Ursa will still come after, so if you tab you'll tab to Ursa instead of Centaur.

    What I propose is to eliminate these pre-set orders and have the unit order whatever you want when making control groups. Sure, if you just group select you can default to a preset, but if I select Chen, then shift select Troll, Centaur and Ursa in that order, control group 1 should come up in that order so if I tab, I'd get Chen, Troll, Centaur, Ursa.

    What u propose won't work with the fonction "select all other units" and I'd like to add that just putting the skeleton warriors last in the preset order would be a great benefit compared to always having them first.

      I'm not sure what you mean by that. Yes I agree that having skeletons last would be beneficial, but this is about manually overriding the default order, as opposed to doing away with defaults altogether.
