Yeah, I also dont like it, I think the fine motor skill aspect of it is counter to my idea of the game. But I also have shaky hands sometimes and just can't master the reclaim clicking. I would make a script to automate it, but that would be cheating.
I do however, find the rocks aesthetically pleasing to the map. I want to make a selection of statues to put on maps I make to be larger chunks of reclaim, while still looking cool.
