I'm in the process of adding a couple new German commanders to the game. What would be a good rating for this commander as far as leadership, attack and defense?

Herman Hoth

Thanks for any help.

EDIT: Also what are people's thoughts on adding new leaders to the game as far as balance and fairness are concerned? Should each country receive a boost in leaders to make the game more balanced?

Also, is it possible to add new leaders to the game?

Here's an idea I have in the Interim until GS 2.0 comes out to elevate a unit to "Elite" status. Basically you buy a commander which is actually an SS icon for the Germans or a Red Guards icon for the Soviets. The "leader" would have a 1 for leadership, and add 1 point to attack and 1 point to defense. So in effect you can make a limited number of units "SS" units or "Red Guards" units.

There could be a couple Bersaglieri attachments for the Italians as well.

Yes, I'm kinda late posting a reply here, but, in case of future updates I'll toss my 2 cents.

I believe that Herman Hoth should have a rating very similar to Heinz Guderian, as opposed to the present status. While he wasn't an innovator like Guderian, or perhaps as charismatic a leader, Hoth did achieve a long string of strong performances both offensive and defensive, defense being something Guderian did not have a real chance to show his skill at. I'd rate Hoth something like this:

Cost = 100
Leadership = 6
Offensive = 1
Defensive = 1

As far as adding more commanders, I think that could be an element to make the game more interesting, as long as basic reality is adhered to. Creating an Italian Leader with stats similar to say, Manstein, would definitely screw things up.

Leaders for the minor powers, might be fun, again only if reality is not too badly bruised in the process. Especially for the Romanians and Finns. It would probably take a fair amount of research to scrounge up the data needed, but it might be worth it.

Take the above with a grain of salt, as I have only just started with the Grand Strategy 2.0, and haven't had all that many games under my belt. This is the first mod I've ever tried, and I'm truly impressed with the results.

One request, in the next upgrade, could you do the manual with a white background? That gives a better result when trying to print it out, and would us much on ink usage.
