Game-play changes were to see if there was an interest in changing the rules to make it slightly more playable.
I think you should be able to sleep for at least 3 hours without knowing you've been stabbed and conquered.
As almost twice as many voted for such changes i would hope that if implemented Alex might consider some of the suggestions. The changes suggested are only minor ones and still keep the game much faster than a 3 ticker.
Edit: I'm only asking that they be considered, Alex may decide to agree with you and decide a 6 ticker should have no rule change.
