I have read the FAQ and i have a really specific question.

If with shred drones i kill all enemy units in the region, i will remove the battle region token, OK!

But how should i interact with the battle region token?

A- ignore that specific battle region token for the remainder of the round?
B- Use this token for the next battle that happens this round?

Option A. All battles are resolved in order. If certain battles are canceled, just skip those. Continue with the next number in line.

FWIW, as a machine player, you don't ever want to kill the last unit in the region with your shredder drones (unless its two opponent's battling, not you).

You get your points by winning battles. Kill every enemy defender but 1 unit, and then walk through it for an easy victory (And points).

Unless you don't have enough units and it's a scoring round (as one example).

Or if the pilgrims have power orbs around. Or humans with artillery...
You should win battles, but it's better to skip one than lose one.

For sure. It was more as a general rule. Obviously there are exceptions. I was more so saying not to skip every battle possible with them, which is a common mistake i've seen new players make.
