However, that being said. It's the only glorified graphical matching making MMORTS and I will happily play it until the day they see their error of thier ways and make a conquest style server.
I don't know about taking over though. DoF just doesn't seem like a game that would benefit greatly from that (even though I haven't played it yet.) I think that destroying their units and taking resources is enough to destroy them. Maybe breaking some of their buildings, but being able to take their castle spot can cause players to quit. I would prefer an active game over that. Though I must say, taking over is lots of fun nonetheless.
