First of all, thanks for this, I bought closed alpha access immediately.
I have a question @artch: Are you going to retain all (or most of) the mechanics of Screeps, such as harvesting, spawning, creep parts, boosting, base building etc.? Or are some features going to be removed? I imagine this format will favor early aggression and matches will be resolved rather quickly, so many end-game features would never get to be used.
Also, would scenarios such as: >>Both you and your opponent get spawned with a "tank, healer and dps" creeps, with no way to spawn more and it's last man standing.<< be possible too?
