Actually, thanks to a discussion here the other day I was looking up RTS games on the Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real-time_tactics

Rome: Total War is considered Real Time Tactics. Other games are considered Real Time Strategy. So pgoeleven has it entirely backwards.


Which makes sense to me. If you're building an army and a base, it's strategy. If you only have fighting units, it's tactics.
