Using the side mouse buttons in an RTS?

Hello guys,

I also play a lot of MMO and so I have a mouse with 12 buttons on the side. Do you think its good to use these and how?

For example a lot of people have TC = 4, barracks = 5 … but I find these kind of hard to hit since they are for far away from the grid keys. What do you think about binding the production buildings to the mouse side buttons?

Yeah if you have that many buttons using them for production buildings is a good idea.

12 buttons??? This should be ilegal xD
Jokes aside, if you can use them, use them. You gotta find what works best for you. Binding the production buildings to the side buttons sounds like a really good idea so i sould say go for it, give it a go and see if it works for you.

I use it a lot, use your mouse program and link it to keyboard letters
