If there is a current way to do this, I am unaware of it. .... but, it would be nice to be able to have one click game setup "profiles". There is the quick start feature, but what about a quick setup feature? I usually play with two or three people and 7 or 8 AI players on Vicious (usually until this beta and now have to reduce to a large map instead of huge due to d-syncs and minidumps) and to constantly be clicking to add these is just annoying.
For us to have a chance to win we have to be next to one another at start, or at the most only one AI between us so sometimes we have to quit and restart a few times to get to that configuration.
and/or a check box or some setting to place allied teams at start of game to be adjacent.
Just some thoughts.
