Can't see the point with RTS (Wasteland, xcom, pathfinder in turn base, temple of elemental evil, those games aren't RTS the old IE games aren't really RTS too).
Anyway asking why they like it or find it better is just a way of discussing the games mechanics. Agree or not is something else.
But it looks you're not very interrested to discuss about the mechanics and trying to understand their goals
Personnaly.I think such Q/A could :
- close a few topics
- help us to give a better feedback
- create a link between the players and the devs.
- why not help devs to think about things they didn't consider
