Time limited demo, this must be absolutely the dumbest mistake Ironclad/Stardock have ever made regarding this game.Think about it: Would you ever consider as a strategy gamer to start playing a game if you know upfront that you would abruptly trown out of it after 90 min? That experience would create frustration, not desire!I wouldn't mind playing on smaller maps or with other limited functionality as long as I am sure that I can actually finish my game! Give people full functionality on a single map, playing as one faction (TEC) only, with or without multiplayer. Now that would create desire to buy!
Like yarlen said: the two smaller maps were chosen so you could finish within 90 minutes especially if you play on fast setting.
