    I agree with zdsdead ea.
    Right click is info, left click is 'action'.
    Let's not go into poll-mode here guys :-D

    Yeah, no polls on this please. I'm good with the above. I'll just throw this out though. What about making double left click the action? So if you double click on an enemy unit while you have you unit selected, it will attack. Or if you double click on an empty space, the unit will try to move there. Would that make things easier?

    Double-LMB for action feels kinda janky to me. IIRC MoM used a contextual mouse pointer to indicate what a selected unit could do, then single LMB performed that action and that worked really well.

    Yeah, I really loved that. Aaron, do you think WoM could do what WyldeRhide is talking about?

    Yep AWSD, or at least the arrow keys.

    The contextual LMB is a good idea. We'll see what we can do

    Arrow keys were already on the "Ways to move the camera" list. I'll need to add WASD.

    I'd like to be able to pan the camera around by moving the mouse to the edges of the screen. I would prefer to not have to use the keyboard at all if possible and I don't have a middle mouse button on my laptop keyboard.
