Yup. The length stays the same, but the pace increases. Basically, the same amount of stuff needs to happen in order for someone to reach level 10. But instead of taking 3 long turns over 150 minutes, each player is instead taking an average of 10 shorter turns over 150 minutes.

So instead of waiting 50 minutes before your next turn you're waiting about 15 minutes.

Makes a huge difference.
