In a recent game my Brit HQ was set on auto-assist

I had 4 fighters attached, moved the fighters then back surrounding in the HQ in a city.

The HQ then attached to three garrisons not the fighters I guess because they were forward.

A good improvement would be if you could dictate the type of unit the HQ should preference to attach.

In this case HQ auto-assist fighters or air force.

Maybe have Tanks/AT, Infantry/AA/Arty, Airforce. Our even more detail.

About the only time I ever use HQ auto-assist is when I'm operating an HQ up to the front-line, or after a sea voyage. I figure that way it will lend out some useful assistance to some of my unattached units on the enemy's turn. Otherwise, as tedious as it is I just rely on the manual settings to get the units attached that I want attached.

Garrisons really need to be on the bottom of the totem pole there.

I would love to have a way to set up a preference list for my HQs that would allow auto assist to be useful

I have never seen an HQ set on "auto-assist" de-select a unit I had attached to it and then select another unit to attach to itself. As long as the fighters remained in command range, they should have remained attached to the HQ, period.

The "auto-assist" function should only select a unit to attach to the HQ if there are spare spots available that the player has not used. It should never override a players choice.

Sounds like a bug to me...

The fighters moved from surrounding HQ in Cambridge to Iraq then back to Cambridge. I should have checked but the HQ then attached 3 forward garrisons. There were also several AA around London with an Army in London.

My suggestion is it would be nice if auto assist could specify which type of unit to prioritize, say fighters or tanks.
