Hello everyone! I just got the Steelseries Merc Stealth Gaming Keyboard in the mail today. The gaming pad seems amazing, but I'm wondering how I should go about using it. Does anyone else have the keyboard and play with it for sc2? If so, how are your hotkeys set up? I'd love some tips from everyone on how to make the most of the fully customizable, whopping 31 buttons on the gaming pad. Heres the link for the keyboard showing a closeup of the game pad and the features http://steelseries.com/products/keyboards/steelseries-merc-stealth thanks in advance!
Real men use blank keys.
But on a more serious note (although I do use the das mechanical keyboard, which I believe provides superior control in RTS-style games) I don't know if I would use that steelseries keyboard for SC. Or rather, I wouldn't use the *game pad* to play SC2, just the regular keyboard side. Don't get me wrong, maybe I just don't know, but I see a lot MMO players use them rather than RTS players. Games like SC don't need as many 'macros' per se as MMOs, and every keyboard command is 100% accessible with the left hand. There's also a lot redundancy with the left side of the keyboard. Any given key and queu up multiple things depending on the race, and/or unit type.
