but you should know it takes about 3 times longer to find players for such a match and be aware of the stupidness of some players if you host such a match!
- most ppl dont read the overview match topic nor the lobby settings and are completely surprised after such a match started like "WTFHOST250POINTSONLYAREYOUGAY!?!?ELEVEN!!!" and quit, leaving the other players pissed.
- some ppl join into the lobby, asking immediately for a change of settings. Honestly guys, if you want a specific setup, host your own match!
- few players join and think its just like a 1500 points match, but with less units. so they start their rush/spam, mostly fail because the smaller numbers available and quit the match.
if you find a good group this setting brings a lot of fun if you are willing to be very careful with your units, especially at the beginning and if you like to play slow matches that will develop their tactical depth step by step.
this setting is definitely nothing for first minute cheap units/heli rushers/spammers and thats just fine.
