Ten minutes of preparation? Are you kidding me? I like my games to last between 20-30 minutes, so spending a third to a half of my game time just preparing would be super-annoying. No preparation time. At most, a feature in custom games (which I definitely won't be using). I've always found peace time just makes rushing worse. The longer the time before the first battle, the more of an advantage a good build order has.

As for hardcore mode, I've always believed that to counter-act the penalties that experience gain and loot (or, in the case MMORPG, the rate of growth of your empire) should be vastly increased. As a result, the potential gain is higher to correspond with the stakes.
