I played what I think today was called Legends, about 10 years ago. I was able to, then, name my villages with any character and then when picking the village, I could press that key (shortcut) and the village would appear. I cannot recall all places but I thinkm everywhere a village is chosen.
E.g. 1-Village; A-Village; `-Village, 5-Village
So I could hit 5 and the village named 5-Village would be selected.
Today this does not work and you have removed what IMO is a GUI defacto standard. Most interfaces allow you to select an item from a drop down by pressing the first character. And if there are multiple, the next press goes to the next in that list (e.g. 5-Village1, 5-Village2 - would cycle between both if I kept pressing 5). Today now we have to waste time in selecting the village with the mouse only. Small to some but important when you plow so much time into this and you are constantly changing cities. I memorized my villages before by pressing the specific shortcuts - today it is just more tedious. What was a great feature is now lost.
Not sure also if there is any way to cycle between villages with the keyboard alone. e.g. CTRL-LEFT and CTRL-RIGHT. And if not there should be. Google in Chrome can do this with sheets - any browser can do it and it would be great for the developers to add these keyboard shortcuts.
