The game will auto choose best commanders but that is not always best. If you have let’s say 3 gathering commanders that are level 37 and have max gathering skills. 

You do not want to send 2 of your best-gathering commanders on the same farm. Remember that only talents from the main commander work.

 Best is to remove secondary commander and you choose him. You can leave the primary commander.

Gathering on Alliance Territory

Just gather on your alliance’s territory. This is so simple is a thing to increase your gathering speed. If you check your Alliance structures like a flag and you tap on the info button you will see that gathering on your
Alliance territory will give you 25% of gathering speed.

Try to gather on your alliance territory because not only that you will get bonus speed but you will also fill up your alliance storage.

That is why you will see a lot of serious alliance teleporting on the edge of the border. So resources can spawn on alliance territory.

Sometime you will not be able to find resources on your alliance territory with search option so you will have to zoom out and look further from your city.
