http://lists.csua.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gzg-lWe routinely do 6
player CW duels in two hours or less. This includes time
for mentoring as one or two newbies are not unusual. It also includes
for fetching beer and laughing as the individual that plays hovercrafts
out of control and his gas engine bursts into flames.
Of course the group battlecry is "WAY OF THE WARRIOR!" and if you take
we go "Chaos Marauders" and you move straight with no fire, so dawdling
being aggressive are rare.
