I would love to play a real time game with 1/2 the speed or maybe 1/4 the speed. The AFK time would need to be increased to compensate for the speed change. Instead of a turn every hour, you can have a turn every 2 or 4 hours where the game moves 1 hour at a time.
The turn based games are too slow for me and they go through the tick jumps of 8 hours or more at a time. Taking a turn or 2 every day is a pain. If someone attacked me that is close enough they can and I won’t know they are attacking to react in time. If the game time was slowed down it would be easier to make the micromanagement choices without being on all the time. I like the real time play because it allows you more time to react but you also have to spend a lot of time to win the game. I would like a little of both choices and a slowed down real time game would make this possible and it will also keep the game moving.
