    Intuitive use of Shift + CTRL

    In WC3 and pretty much any other RTS the Shift-key is used to deselect single units in a group, in Dota 2 you have to use CTRL for that and I don't understand why. Especially as you still deselect single units on the main window via Shift whilst CTRL selects all units of that certain type.

    IMHO change Shift and CTRL back so they have their common usages as I don't see the benefit of the way it's done in Dota 2.

    Nope, it doesn't.
    Just doublechecked it.

    Again: Using shift on the main screen does work well, just as in any other game. But when you use it on the group in the top left corner, it _selects_ the particular unit, instead of deselecting it.

    Tested with eidolons.
