I think this might extend the games longevity, and possibly help with waiting times. what i do know is that it would be nice for people to be able to set up lobbies where they could customize how they want battles to play. such as not having capture points, selecting one of the many events the game has such as space titans, be able to customize fleet points allowed and choose the backdrop of the battle. i know a lot of other games have this system and it has been a really good idea in other rts games. i do know you can customize this in solo skirmish vs AI but lobbies for general multiplayer would probably benefit from this as well.
