Uhm yes, and when your enemy is not as technologically advanced, you can blast them in the old fashioned way.
Even if they are, it's not like they're gonna have a huge arrow pointing at the command center or whatever. Of course in such cases, you can always do pre-emptive strikes.
What do you think? It's gonna be a team deathmatch, and the losers move away from the computers? Dream on.

Praising one-man work (Minecraft), then "if only some brilliant designers take the lessons from Minecraft" (aka like Romero, right?), then it would elevate the genre and the gaming scene etc etc.
Hey Romero, people have already been creating/playing with the environment, if you want to "refine", better start working and stop talking, others are ahead in the game.
