STRATEGY! STRATEGY! STRATEGY!
I do not want to have to merely smash unit after unit into enemy cities to bring down an enemy! I want my cannons to be able to blast down their city walls. I want my bombers to destroy their harbors and ruin their trade. I want to be able to bomb their bridges and radar towers. I want to be able to blockade their ports and drain them of their life blood, trade. I want lines of supply to limit me and my opponents so that the game will not be over by 1000 AD. I also want to be able to strategically expand to certain locations first to hold resources that will be essential later. MAKE LOGISTICS IMPORTANT!
True, I DO want new units and unit capabilities but I only want this is in the strategic scheme of a war. I want to be able to let my troops retreat if they are clearly going to be defeated. I also want POWs captured after a defeat so that I can use them as leverage in diplomacy. This is how I want tactics to be incorporated into the overall strategy.
