We will define Rapid Fire as the utilization of the keyboard's repeat rate in conjunction with keyboard bindings to gain an advantage in a game.
Bind an alternate to "Choose Abilily or AI target" that matches another command (such as spawn larva).
The command can be bound using an alternate (creating a less efficient layout) or by aligning the keys that make use of rapid fire (creating a more efficient layout)
TheCore makes use of the latter and can be seen in TheCore Archive This is an example of the protoss layout. 5 alternates have been set for "Choose Ability or AI target" and the gateway units have been matched to those keys along with other abilities that benefit from rapid fire such as Snipe, Infested Terran, and Graviton Beam.
The current commands that can benefit from Rapid Fire are as follows:
Auto Turret, Point Defense Drone, and Seeker Missile
*Rapid Fire inject is special in that it requires a keyboard that repeats multiple keys when pressed at the same time. The test to see if a keyboard is compatible with these two implementation can be found in the Rapid Fire Inject Video.
Team Jmove is a Sc2 clan I own and operate with the mission to make Sc2 a more social and fun experience for everyone. The only requirement to join is that you fill out This Form, watch the initiation video linked at the top, and go to TheJaKaChaT group (not chat channel) on Sc2 to let an officer know you'd like to join. Jmove is a safe space for all gamers and as such we reserve the right to remove players who consistently display sexist, racist, heterosexist, elitist, and other similar negative attitudes that prevent people from enjoying the game.
