I am a diamond terran player but I have been doing this since gold league and thats why its such a bad habit to break. I make wayyy to many scv's... even if I dont lose any I continue to make scv's even after losing a maxed army. Im not sure why, it just happens. and Im not talking about only making 60-80 scvs, Im talking anywhere between 90-120 each game that lasts more than 15 minutes. As soon as I hit 3 bases, my scv count goes through the roof. dont get me wrong now, my economy is great but, it causes me to lose ALOT.. especially vs toss maxed army.
To be honest, I believe the reason that I make so many scv's is because my hotkeys make it so easy to do so. I use grid and my control groups are set at:
1. All CCs, OCs, and PF,s
4. Factory (Vs. toss, ghosts and vikings)
People say spamming is bad but, I believe thats another reason why I make so many scv's. My apm according to SC2 Gears is usually between 250-260 with around 40% redundancy because im constantly spamming 1,2,4,5,3,1,2,4,5,3.... over and over.
Do you guys think that changing my control groups would help anything or is it a good thing that I overmake scv's since I still see pro's who forget to build scv's constantly?
