Relic's games have probably been the most micromanaging games I've ever played. I started thinking about a entire new way of playing RTS games.

What if you had a row of columns and were able to select the top of each column with a seperate key command, then like a drop down menu (doesn't have to be a drop down menu, it could just be highlighted), and use two keys to either scroll up or down (like a mouse wheel) and use the ENTER or SPACE key to select it. Why either of those keys? Well usually the left and right mouse buttons are hovering over the map. It's much more efficient to keep your mouse cursor on the battle map.

Dawn of War 1 used to have Gridkeys where you changes all the hotkeys to match in your HUD against positionally the correct keys.
