Have read the rules last night, game ends when market exhausted or someone runs out of troops. Should the deck of 80 cards be adjusted when playing with less than 4 players to 40/60 (2/3 player) otherwise surely a two player game is likely to only end through placing last troop?

Yeah, a 2 player game will end when you run out of troops, but that's fine, no deck adjustment is necessary, that seems to be the intended most likely ending condition. A four player game will almost certainly end the same way. The market deck running out is going to be a pretty rare occurrence at any player count.

Yeah. The end game should really read "when you run out of troops, and i guess if all of you guys promoted all your Soldiers and built ridiculous streamlined Ambition decks that buy cards but don't affect the board we will end it also if you empty the market deck".

In practice at least one player built a Conquest deck and took over half the board.

Right, over 90% of all games will end on last troop placement, regardless of player count...

My one game ended with deck depletion way before anyone was close to all troops. I think the lowest troops were about 10 left. This was a 4 player game. We were playing Dragon/Elemental so there were a lot of high cost cards in the deck, so we all thought we needed to have that influence. We also drained the Priestess stack. Towards the end we were all buying at least 2 cards per turn.
