    Hi Team,

    I have a suggestion that would be a great addition to troop distribution in my opinion.

    In all screens where you send troops from one village to another, and all screens where you list troops, have an incoming attack indicator. I know on some screens they are already there, but on some they are not:

    * Village groups pop up, where you often go to select a village to send troops from.
    * On the "Defenses" screen when looking at the "Troops" overview, the village that has the defense has an indicator, but the ones supporting has not - makes it difficult to see at a glance which support troops you can send back to re-use.
    * Similar for the "Support" screen when looking at the "Troops" overview. It is thus impossible to know from this overview whether you can send offensive troops back to their real village to use in offense.
    * In the village browser when attacking from the attack/support quick-button popping up when clicking on a village, where villages are sorted in distance proximal to the village you are sending to, in that list would include an indicator as well, so that you know not to move that villages defenses out, for example.

    It is best explained by example:

    * Village 1 is being attacked.
    * Village 2 is clear.
    * Now Village 3 is being attacked.
    * I want to move defenses to defend Village 3, but in most of these overviews I cannot see that Village 1 is being attacked, so I may end up sending troops from a village in need to another village in need.

    Hope this is not too elaborate.

    Cheers!

    This can be done with a combination of dynamic and manual groups.

    -Set up a new dynamic and a new manual group
    -Add Village 1 to the manual group ('V1' for the purpose of this post).
    -Change the dynamic group to include the villages you want (e.g. Type: Defense, spears at Home >250 or something) and make sure you check the "Manual group" option; adjust this to "not a member of" and "V1".
    -Mobilize your D from the dynamic group and continue editting 'V1' to keep it up to date with villages you do/don't want included.

    Perhaps a suggestion out of this would be the option to hide groups from the selection bar.

    Hi @wikkiddeath1 very good suggestion, but it would mean I have to consistently add/remove villages from this group.

    When you have thousands of incoming attacks, and more gets piled on every minute, this is becoming impossible to maintain.

    I currently have a manual way of doing this, and it is tedious. So - while your idea is good and shows skill, it does not really make life a lot easier.

    But your post has put me on a path to try and figure this out. I might be able to, for example, use a dynamic group, "Incoming" - that already exists, and then create one based off of that called "No incomings offense" and "No incomings defense" and use those groups for selecting villages to send to. It will, however, not take care of the "Troops" section knowing which troops I can send back or not.
