    Marathon is longer. Unit costs are a bit reduced in Marathon, so you tend to have more units on the map, and more time to move them around before they get obsolete.

    Epic is 1.5 times standard, marathon 3 times

    The math on building things doesn't quite balance to normal, though.

    Essentially, you have more time to move units around per era, so units obsolete more slowly. 99 out of 100 times, advantage = human.
