Simplified as in the most automated.
I also read elsewhere on the website that their are 12 resources for each faction, many buildings but no micro-management,
I have no idea where you got that information. There are four resources, plus Influence which can be used to speed up construction or purchase micro-transactions. There are many buildings, and I'm not sure what you are referencing with micromanagement. There is a high level of micromanagement for units.
