It depends what your doing. Normally when you DC you get kicked out of the game. Not so sure anymore if its a bad thing or not.

Yeah, generic RTS, but we're talking MMO where people spend forever building up troops etc. if you get away free from a DC that's bad and would be exploited, where at the same time if you lose all your stuff from an unintentional one that's also a bad thing, which is why I mentioned temporary AI control.

I'd just like to point out the battalion caps versus population cap. You can have quite a few total armies, but the size of each army is capped and you can only send one army per player participating, at least for now. Losing an entire army for an advanced player should be a minor-moderate setback, not a soul crushing and game ending defeat.

LoL, the elves and humans will ally against You and you'll be crushed in no-time. You should not rule with one huge army but political with others army.

WHY MUST YOU CRUSH OUR DREAMS!!!!
...THere goes my plans for pincer attacks... I always hate the "One BIG army vs Another" thing and send out a big force with a medium force to hit them from the sides/behind... Or bait them with a small army... then bite them down with the big hidden army...

Your no fun Josh =P

PFFFT... I was hoping to be the big bad evil Elf lurking in the shadows... bidding my time... then laying waste to the orc and human cities .... *sigh* one can dream... one can dream...

Wow nice info (new info?o.O I forgot if its not new x.x). I like it quite much since you can use another army while building back the one you lost =). Or just do multiple things. Just hope that army cap will not be too small =P.

I wonder how hard it would be to wage a battle on two fronts ... meaning your the attacker on two fronts... it'd probably be somewhat easier being a defender on two fronts though I think.

It took 2 ages to totally crush Sauron (6462 years to be exact) and that was because of one small hobbit. I'm not concerned
