Away team "orders" / controls
I apologize if his has already been suggested, I did search and briefly skim through about the first 5 pages, didn't see it. If it's redundant, oh well.

Very simple suggestion here: Keyboard hotkeys for telling your away team members "go here" and "come back".

Example: Mass Effect
Simple one key presses depending on where you're pointing, you'd tell team member 1 go here, team member 2 go there, etc.

This isn't a game-killer, but the current form of clicking some small little button then clicking somewhere in the environment is much too sluggish, especially in the middle of combat.

oh yes yes yes, the mousey controls are on the ground are terrible. I'd like to have controls like I had setup for my mastermind back in CoV days.. if anyone remembers that numpad setup where you could press 1 to select some guys, then issue say, 9, to get them to move somewhere. It was 10x times faster and honestly this game should have had basic controls like this in the first place.

As they are, I have to spend a bunch of time setting my men up nicely before the battle starts and I rarely change them during a fight -- its too cumbersome.
