Hotkey to autodeploy for minimum expansion: 6/1/2019 19:25:49

Most turns you end up spending a lot of time deploying the exact minimum amount of armies on a territory to ensure expansion into the next one territory. You have to keep changing between the deployment and the move/order phases to do those minimal deployments and moves for every single expansion locale, on large maps it's easy to lose track of areas where you deployed (thinking of expanding) but then forgot to submit the move order because you didn't want to switch to move phase just yet before deploying some more. My suggestion to facilitate this repetitive and often error prone activity is a hotkey (maybe 'e' for expansion if it's not being used already) that you can hold down during the move phase and when you do a move order from x to y it automatically figures out the minimum number of armies you need to deploy on x to accomplish that minimum expansion move and deploys those for you.

Vote if you care

Or take this wonderful opportunity to revise your uservoice votes and comment on other peoples suggestions, that would also be swell.

Not for it, not against it. If most players like it it will probably be added.

I stopped playing FFAs for exactly this reason. The repetive and annoying expansion into neutrals. I would be so up for automating that process.

Maybe I am dense but I am not following. Can you post some pics with an example?

sounds similar to "Autopilot"

Probably better would be if we are noticed that there are lands with armies that still can move (like in Local Deployment games deployment phase). We are already noticed if we do turns without moves, maybe that would help more.

I understand the need for this feature, but a hotkey is not the right solution. Hotkeys don't work on mobile, which is where most players are, and statistics show that even on desktop, most people don't use hotkeys even when they are shown how. A better solution is a tap sequence, like tap and hold.

yes, pls no more hotkeys, because they are the least intuitive ones if seen so far...
