I actually hated 40:40 when I first came across it and detested the reaction phase. But once I got to grips with it and saw it in play, I couldn't go back to 60 sec turns.
I HATED the 40:40 sequence and simply played it as an 80 second turn. Which I still do for the most part.
BUT then, low and behold, I'm in trouble and I need to do something about it. Not a major overhaul, just something minor like:
WITHDRAW!!! THERE ARE GERMAN TANKS EVERYWHERE!
You know, minor stuff.
Now, I still play my 80 second turns but I use the reaction phase to get myself out of trouble.
So Stridor gave me back my 60 second turns like I asked him to. He even did me better than that, he added a whole different set of sequencing choices for PCO.
There are 5 different sequences and I've made battles for all five. I still prefer the 40:40 to be played as an 80 second turn and when I need it I know I can get myself out of trouble if things get too bad.
