The same micromanagement that plagues most 4x but this time in real time. On the upside this limits any kind of sinking into the micromanagemnt on the down side it also limits the good moments. Poorly explained skills instead of organic depth through mechanics limit the payoff. Basically I would rather play an rts like spring ZK or a turn based 4x with decent micro mitigation set to auto-turn. No mods in multiplayer mean the game can not be fixed.
