The entire pace of the game would have to be changed in order to keep it within a 15-20 minute time limit, because that's you know, Wargaming's thing, short quick battles. As well, you would probably have to change many mechanics (some for better, most for worse) just to maintain the fast pace and appeal to a very casual audience.
The default game length is 45, and one send tend to have a distinct advantage after 30. Current game paces are fine, especially on smaller maps. As for casual audience, Total War Arena is arguably as complex as Rome 2 in term of combat and nobody seemed to mind. If people can understand the charge mechanics in Arena when they come out of the noob tiers, they can understand WG's spotting system. There will be scrubs, but there are plenty of scrubs at is.
