How important would you say hot keys are? At what rating do them come in to play? I've never learnt/used hot keys because I don't feel like using hot keys will boost my gaming at all.

anyone playing online should be using hotkeys for most common buildings and units. Most good players will use hotkeys almost all the time when possible. It just takes too much time to move the mouse down to the corner of the screen and click the little picture. Especially when they really small because you've customized your UI. Then there are things that you can only do with hotkeys. Like go to selected unit (space) or go to last sound. After a while it just becomes second nature.

Since I almost only play aom well eating supper every couple days for fun and not competively I dont use hotkeys because I cant (1 hand) and dont feel like it (only playing to have fun). Sometimes tho I feel like being a little faster and use some hotkeys but I dont realy find them nessecery at my level they probably do matter 1900+ tho.

I can't play without hotkeys, they make a big difference in terms of speed. It's probably best just learning a few at first.

As for setup, having space bar as your idle vill key is very useful.

I put idle vill at middle mouse button. space bar is good too.
