I think that this option must be OPTIONAL in any case.

I had before a dial up connection and now an ADSL connection but with afternoon time (I pay extra money if I connect before the 18:00 hours). If I have to be connected to make a turn then me (and a lot of people) will be forced to play only during night-time, play as fast as possible or play in fewer games.
This is an strategy game not a Quake so I don't see a big adventage in seing how the enemy make his turns (that can take a lot). And when I play I continue replay the action (moving bakct to guerrilla phase, for example) so if somebody see what I'm doing can suffer seasickness.

Also this Monday I was unable to connect to the server but I can make the turns of all my games. What to do if I have to be connected to make the turns?

Of course there are advantages, for example time limit per turn. Could be great to have this like an option. Now you can set the turn limit in days but if you can add the opportunity to set also a "making turn limit" could be great mainly in tournaments. Is more realistic to make turns with a little of pressure.

And you could know who is connected and choose to make the turns of that person first. This is good (chat channels could be use for this now but unfortunately people don't use them)

And another idea... what about team games? If all the people is connected you could play cooperative games based in time limit per turn. Players of same team move his units during their turn in real-time and everyone see the movements. Like board games, you can take your unit and say "please, put away your tank that I want to put here my rocket launcher". Could be nice (a little troublemaker but funny).

PD: I hope you understand my english!! :oops:
