The problem I've found with many RTS games is that you spend ages getting an army to attack with, you move your men towars the keep and before they get their some massive explosion of some sort wipes out your army. By the time your army is replenished, their devastating strike is back.
Happened in BFME, Halo wars, CnC3 to name a few. I'd rather use strategic manouvers to take out an enemies army than click one button to do it for me.
It all depends on how Reverie want DoF to turn out like, it can either be a challenging strategy game, or a building game with nukes. I know which one i'd rather play lol.
Possibly something that can be done in a mod for personal enjoyment.
