There's tons of RTSes that have short gametimes. It's nice to finally have one that gives us a nice long game, which I like.

This game can last well into 6+ hours and that's how I like it. I get tired of playing RTSes that end after 15 minutes.

Thats why I wanted the map download in so bad, average games on the official maps last around 2-4 hours for 3-6 people, longer for more. Their random map generator only makes medium to large maps as well, the game only tailors to very very long multiplayer matches unless you just want 1v1

I made some really small maps, two planets per player that should cut it down to about an hour but it will be awhile till I can play them on ICO against others.

Ah well then stay away from Sins. Even a 1 on 1 Match is an epic. BUT: you can save a multiplayer game. Now that's something, isn't it?

how long is the average 4 player game? One of my fav things about Warcraft 3 is that it has about a 15 minute game time.

Company of Heroes, meanwhile, can drag on for over an hour.. and that's victory point 500 mode. In annihilation mode, it can go on even longer.......

I can't stand such long games. Too many things happen. People drop and the game is ruined, etc..

Yeah a great game, needs a fix for players dropping in multiplayer, the AI that takes over does nothing. Maybe make it good, or let others join in, IDK, something.

Still want to see map downloading, dev response said not likely anytime soon which makes me go ARGH! I hate the big maps that come with the game for 4-8 players.

It's grown on me a bit, although I'm still too dumb to be able to be good at RTS games, and double-dumb at any game remotely resembling Civilization or any of the 4X genre.

already two patches released, one which fixes several problems reported by players on their forum (I believe it fixes the Easy AI - Siege Frigate Spam craziness.)

Iron Lore, you guys are awesome.

Well that didn't take very long. The game has been rock solid for me though.
