I used to love this game and haven't played in awhile due to GM [the state in which GM are being used]. Even though as a non GM player I could beat them, the time it took to micro manage the game was not worth it.
Most of the GM rage I used to encounter on these forums and in game was due to the instant creation of multiple units, allowing that player to gain an advantage, especially early in a game.
As it stands now, to speed up production of units and buildings it costs 850 GM for a 12 hour boost. I would propose changing that to 850 GM for a 50% speed up boost. So the first 850 GM would knock it down to 12 hours, the second 850 GM would knock it down to 6 hours, then 3 hours, 1.5 hours and so on.
This proposal gets rid of the instant units and buildings, unless someone wants to dig very deep into their GM pockets. This would allow a bit more time for other players to form counter attacks and set defenses instead of being run over by [someone that is using GM].
