Can't we do less than 100 round limit?
I suppose we could. I have a couple of problems with it.
1. I find round limits distort strategy. You get people playing for the round limit instead of playing to win. I'm starting to accept them as a necessary evil, but I still don't like them.
2. No Spoils games are inherently slow. In escalating you can say that if someone hasn't made their move by round 15 they're not going to, but in No Spoils someone may in fact be building for 20 or 30 rounds with the full intention of launching a major offensive after that, and it might require two or three major offensives to bring it home.
All that being said, I am interested in keeping my customers happy, so if we get a number of you asking for a shorter round limit I'm willing to put my personal feelings aside and yield to popular demand.
