I would have posted this on the other forums but for some reason they are read only, despite being recent posts. One of the comments was that it's not RTS but is 4X, well according to Wikipedia:
"The first 4X games were turn-based, but real-time 4X games are not uncommon."
So I can summise that 4X games can be both RTS and Turn Based, I don't mind turn based as I love CIV but definitely a RTS fan, thought Sins of a Solar Empire was great, although gets boring after a while.
So which is it, RTS, turn based or both? Thanks in advance.
