Should AOE 2 be played quickly in qualifiers?

I started today playing AOE 2 qualifiers but its in normal speed game and the game take so long to finish. Why AOE2 decided this if RTS need be faster like Star craft 1 and Starcraft 2.

1.7 speed has been standard for years. Faster speed would make macro and micro worse as units would move faster meaning you miss stuff even more. 2.0 speed is only used for DM for this reason


just like what tempires says, and also this has always been standard part of the game and changing to the level of starcraft would kill the game for many people also…
