Now I know when you are playing an egyption god that you especially have to make sure your units are attacking what they counter, but at some times in a battle it get's hard to click the right unit since all of the other ones are moving around. I was wondering if anybody usees the zoom function to help them with this?

I got this constantly and it kills my slingers.
I dont know how to avoid this but be more careful when shift clicking.

Ops.
"this" = shift click on the right units...Ouch,clicked on nothing.So unit(normally slingers) will run into the crowd and be killed.

The problem with the zoom feature is this:

In a battle that requires superior micro skills to win, then you are likely fighting an opponent who is also Mico-Controlling his units. In this situation, speed is absolutly crucial. Hitting the zoom key not only takes a second to do, it also reduces the amount of units you can see at once, and makes it such that a fleeing unit leaves you view frame very quickly.

Even though you may be more accurate with your click, I don't think the extra time wasted compensates for the added accuracy.

Although, sometimes it helps to do your shift clicking before the battle starts. Double click a slinger and then shift click a bunch of his rangies before they scatter and start fighting (i.e. while they are still in formation)

When things get wild like that I've started boxing the whole army and then clicking on the "slinger" icon (or whatever) at the bottom to select them all.

You can double-click the unit you're trying to select instead of boxing all units and selecting icon. It's harder to pull of when your units are moving around though.

Anyone ever get this problem? When shift-clicking your ranged units on enemy units...If you happen to shift-click an enemy unit, and that enemy unit is killed before the ranged units get to attack it, then the ranged units will then walk over to the point where the enemy unit used to be rather than just attacking the next unit that you shift-clicked.

i use 1-5 as hotkeys for my army with pharaoh on 5 usually, or priests or siege.

and then i devide up into what they counter.
so i will have ca and slinger in 2 different groups

and then infantry on 1 and 2 (playing egypt) and slinger on 3, then maybe ca or siege or something other on 4 and 5.


but 1 thing that i guess a lot of people dont use, is if i mass slingers as set, i will use more groups, since it is no use to have 40 slingers in same group, the target will be dead long before all of them have fired, so i use 2-3 groups.
