Ac is meant to prevent army stacking, and forcing you to actually compete...
This is how its intended function is formulated. But my concern is, it doesn't work the way it's supposed to. In most cases it gives the stronger
player the upper hand, by not allowing the weaker
player to make deployments. It hampers competitive playing, by letting the strong player enjoy her strength.
AC + custum senario were someone starts with a big stack could work. Also works well for no/light fog FFA, with no neutrals as it prevents someone from just building up, forcing them to use armies in order to gain them.
Okay this is an idea. Do you have the link to an exemplary game?
