    That's what I told him.

    I'd enter but I don't have my computer yet. I'm ordering it on Friday of this week though so I should have it in a week or two.

    Can someone describe what Lurker Hold Position is? And why it isn't allowed?

    I think I should like my lurkers holding their positions, instead of runnin around like bozos.
    Proper army standards.

    What is it?

    Three ways to do this:

    1) Keep spamming S like a moron with your lurkers selected. Then, when you wish them to attack, stop spamming.

    2) Select lurkers with another unit, such as an overlord, and press H for hold position. Then, when you wish to attack, select lurkers and either press S or press A and left click on ground near lurkers.

    3) Select lurkers, press A, and left click on some building thats hidden under the fog of war. To resume attacking, press S or press A and left click on ground near lurkers.
    Got to love Google. Taken from TL of course. You can see the entire thread on it here.

    Oh wow, you're right, I can see why that wouldn't be allowed.
    Thanks!

    Well, it is a quite rare strategy now a days due to the fact that it is forbiden in pro-games due to its "effectiveness". Still it is quite of a cheap move as it may cause the death of a full army without detectors with just 3 or 4 lurkers. Fun to do but not good for a competitive gameplay. Besides it uses a bug.
