I get that Automatas may cause some things to happen which will slow the game down due to players having to make more decisions based on what Automatas do.
However, will using Automata bring the end game sooner? How much sooner?
(I'm wondering about this as I have a group of players who may try to extend the game length a lot by not using influence cubes.)
We designed the Automas to move the game towards the end of the game at about the same pace as a human player and they'll continue to do so whether the human players do so or not.
