I'm curious to know what the community here on the forums prefers when it comes to RTS control.

Both are equally important to winning the game but as of now there isn't many options to increase macro in DoW3.
Those who overly prefer macro, won't get into this game in the first place. Yes, macro is important, but micro dominates.
This game doesn't have micro in the traditional RTS sense - controlling each specific model in a group. It feels like it's all squad positioning and unit building composition to me. tactical combat requires some 'micro' but that's also on a squad to squad level.
If by 'micro' you mean use of special abilities and tactical combat, i think that is the game with 'macro' being base building and unit building a support skill.
