What is you preferred pace for strategy gaming – faster dynamic battles or a slower one with more analysis and planning? Should include many units or few precious ones
How about the bloodiness of the engagements? Do you like destruction of each unit to be challenge or more expendables are more fun?
I personally prefer to have plenty of time for analysis and planning, but not to do reflex dependent tactical combats. Strategy gaming for me is mostly about planning moves and analysis strengths and weaknesses prior to acting. What is you unique view?
