### Re: [Excel] Starting Drop Spreadsheet

What do you mean with divisor drop list?

The components are the number of territories for each starting positions. You certainly know that you can have, for example, 3 starting positions, each one with more than a single region into it.
Unfortunately, for now you can use the spreadsheet only if you have the same amount for all starting positions. So if you have 2 with 2 components and 1 with 3 components, you need to do your math manually.
I'll develop a better version in future, as soon as i have a bit of free time. So don't be afraid to ask if something is not clear or if you would like to have additional options/features into it.

The divisior....normally you get +1 for every 3 territories you hold...that is with the divisor at 3.
But some maps now are having a divisior of 4...meaning if they hold 18 terrtories, they get +4, not +6.
This is to do with min/max reinforcement.

Oh, now i understand. Yes it can be added something like that...it is a simple thing.

But this tool doesn't count the number of troops you start with, but the number of regions.
