All of the other threads regarding this issue have been locked for some reason. I would just like to know if anything will be done as far as giving players for consoles an unlimited time option. Please don't lock this, there is nothing offensive or annoying in this post. I and a few others would just like to know.

There not enough ram for ps3/xbox so they have to have a time limit.

Not true. Unit cap might have to do with RAM limitations(or bandwidth), but time limit has zero to do with RAM. There is no reason they couldn't make it unlimited, other then a design decison(bad one IMHO).

I agree it is an abysmal omission.

I think it needs to be addressed. I would at least like to know if any devs are aware that people want this option. If nothing can be done about it, then we should at least be told its never going to happen.

Agreed, i would love to have several hoursworth of fighting with friends.

Although.. if they did that a way to save would be needed which is probably why they chose this design feature.

Aye, I think this option would be good, although it'd also be good to have a 'propose a draw' or 'propose a five minute break' in the case of a game that was 3-hours in and looked like it was going to end up that way, and someone had to go to bed/work/toilet.

The last thing I want is to be stuck in a 3 hour stalemate when playing a ranked match online. I have a job and a family - 30 minute games suit me fine

I don't think anyone's suggesting this for a ranked match option, but rather for custom games. I support the idea, but like you have commitments outside of gaming that mean I'd pretty much never play it. Just because we can't play it doesn't mean others shouldn't be able to enjoy it though.

There are some maps that are just begging for a three hour slugfest. I build admin buildings if I think the game is going to run long. I like to seize half the map and then trick the enemy into rushing into my ambushes. It always ends too quickly though.

At least an unlimited time option for battles...

RAM has nothing to do with an unlimited time game. I guess the developers thought that wouldn't work.

It should be easy for them to add that Option in a Custom game with a patch.
