Since thread title is probably a bit confusing I will explain what I mean.

Let's say you hold left mouse button, you would be able just to sweep across terrain and pick your minions up way faster or hold right mouse button and slap them faster.

If you pick up all those creatures you'll be firstly costing yourself mana potentially unnecessarily, might pick up creatures you don't want to pick up, like imps or stuff that should be working or worse if you're slapping you might slap everything too quick and make them angry.

It's better to keep the player controlled and keep that little extra click as a confirmation for the player that they're doing exactly what they want to do.

I must admit, it's not a bad idea, but I think I'm with Noontide, since I have a feeling that could make the pickup process rather messy. Also, how is it possible to slap more than one creature at the same time? :D (that said, how is it possible to have mysterious floating hand...so I guess it's not that unusual ;) )

Well, the point is that it only happens if you hold the button a short while so you can still do it like it is now too when needed. Naturally lack of mana would stop the action from happening.

Also my idea about that slapping was that it would just slap every minion once when you hover over them. So you would not accidentally slap them again.

still im with the others this is something that worked well in Black and White (for example) but i dont think it will be very useful in WFTo there is less space for example and you wont be able to pick up as much for balancing reasons.

still, adding this to the list
