Classic Game Speed is the slowest game speed, since it offers no starting resources and minimal Incomes.
Classic Game Speed focuses more on early development, rather than instant merc clashes.

This speed gives all players enough time to plan their moves since they have more time to learn their enemies tactics and mercenary choices. Although its the slowest game speed, it is recommended that beginning players play this mode to familiarize themselves with the units and upgrades present in the map.
