If I'm not mistaken, can't you label a unit/building with SHIFT + [number]?

No, it's CTRL+number.

However, with shift you can group groups temporarily.
Example, Theoden is on 1, rohirrim on 2.
Hit shift and hold it, then hit 1 and 2.
Both groups are now selected.

Note that no hotkey is assigned to them, they're just selected until you select another unit or group.

anyone else see the irony that "qwerty" is having a hotkey catastrophe?


btw u missed out

Gondor...

G - postern gate (same for rohan)
T - wall treb

Rohan...

can't remember what it is but there is one for wall banner.

Isengard...

A - Armory
W - siege works (same for mordor)
C - crossbow for isengard. I always press x like a nub for 'xbow', then get frustrated and wonder why they wont build.....then a coupla seconds later i feel like quite the fool lol

Mordor...
P - mak pen
A - Hardrim palace
in patch 1.3 G - gollum

Universal...

Hold alt to set waypoints fpr units
You can also do that lasso thingy where u draw around the units u want with ctrl or summin
Spacebar - skip to last mini-map event
F + select units - combine different units
F9 - hide/show mini map and palantir
Tab - single player...objectives. Multiplayer - view the players in game and their status/faction/etc
Ctrl + F1 - F8 = set shortcut a location on the map/view angle/etc
num pad keys 4,8,6,2,5 OR mouse wheel forward, back, hold and move mouse left/right, click once - rotate view, zoom in out, return to default view
Enter - Global chat
Backspace - Team chat
ctrl + B - Place beacon. (select and press delete to remove the beacon)

I know I missed a lot, if you would read, you'll see I have some work to do tongue.gif

Anyways, I should indicate that Shift + A unit queues 5, not just shift.

ctrl+H Cycle through heroes
alt+# View corresponding team (doesn't select)

These two are useful to see what all your troops are doing tongue.gif



Why isn't there an option for cheer? There's plenty of unit emotion in the game, so it already has animations, you'd only have to put in a button to make your units cheer on command. In ZH its ctrl-c. It would be funny to put some soldiers in front of a noob's base as cheerleaders:

"You can do it! Build that archery range!" (soldiers constantly cheering)

Bunched up units will kinda spread apart and move in opposite directions. If used right, it can help avoid large losses from a catapult or treb attack.

^^^ It does not move units around within the batallion, just multiple battalions scatter.
