Game pauses every time a unit dies.
Who thought that would be a good idea? Seriously? Makes the game fairly unplayable.

You can turn this off using options.exe (or select Configure when you click Play).

I had to edit the game.ini file directly - just set autopause = 0

Realmente coisa de doido....ainda bem que dá para desabilitar essas pausas.....
Fora isso, o jogo é muito bom, com total liberdade para zoom nas unidades, ajuste de ângulos de câmera, o que dá grande imersão no jogo. Muito legal ver de perto as unidades atirando....realmente um jogaço!!!
