Can you point me to where this was discussed in the forums? I'm very interested to see what people said about this.

i just lost a game due to turn limits where I controlled all the control points, and had eliminated all but one of the enemies units, and i had around 12 units on the board. I had forgotten about the turn limits, and paid for that dearly. He won something like 9-5.

Ouch.

Main points were:

1. Games more than 30 turns are too long;
2. A 50 turn limit makes control points irrelevant, and caputuring CPs should be a viable strategy.

i put up a thread to discuss this stuff, and the issues surrounding cp. may as well fold turn limits in.
and it'd help wtih the serious flaws with those points chrism if we'd discuss them.

100% agree. I also believe RATED matches should be same length as tourney games (if yall add unrated, then that's different)

This might well change the optimal tactics on a lot of maps.

rts grow by its ever-changing optimal strategies, otherwise it would get pretty boring after a while

Yes, no problem with that, but clearly one now has to take it into account.

One of the best things about this game is that at least in sealed, tactics are ever-changing.
