    So you know how when you select a group of units their icons appear in the bottom middle of the screen and they can be tabbed through type by type?

    Is there a way to control the order? Obviously heroes are first, units with abilities are second, and units without abilities are third, but how can you control the order within those sub-categories?

    As far as I know, I don't think this is possible but I cannot see what the problem would be if you cannot do so.

    Your quote might as well be true, but what I said is also true.

    No, Death Adder is wrong.

    Excellent, thank you. I'd always thought it did what Death Adder said.


    The problem is basically one of improving the interface for users in a micro-heavy game. Having to do too many rapid tabs through a bunch of units to get to the ability you want can make it significantly harder to quickly and accurately get to the abilities you need, so it's good to have units with important abilities that you will want to use in the middle of combat earlier in the list.
