Because everybody's cogitating.

I think it's a good addition to the game, afterall in TT you could take as much time as you wanted to plan out your moves, but maybe in MP limit it's use much more so the game isn't constantly in super slow-mo. Maybe limit each use to a maximum of 8-10 seconds or so and then limit how many times you can use it overall...

I wouldn't play without the ability to slow down the gameplay whenever the action gets too hectic.

I always fought feature that slows or fasten up a game pace quite distracting, especially in RTS were timing and a feel for the pace is important.

Because its a very very good feature. A RTT where tactic and strategy make the difference and not Aktions per minute.

It's not an unlimited pause, and it's needed to pull off some more complicated manoeuvrers in larger battles.

What about trolls that just turn it on and leave it on at the beginning of the game? I can't do anything to stop it, and it literally just runs to completion. Kind of frustrating :/
