Just a few questions. :)

What's the best way to use the chain of command? :confused:

Should you place a good leader between Stalin and the rest of the armies?
Is that enough to keep Stalin from interfering or should you have more HQs in between?
Is there a limit of HQs to place under one leader that maximizes his effectiveness?
How many levels of hierarchy, from the armies to a HQ with a good leader, should I have to maximize the effectiveness of a good leader?

Thanks for your help.

Intermediate levels of command decrease the chance that Stalin/Hitler take command. I think Arnaud is the only one who has the actual formula for these probabilities.

It is possible to bypass Stalin/Hitler altogether by creating a cycle. For instance, subordinate AGS to AGC and AGC to AGS: Hitler no longer takes command in these two areas. However, this is very gamey and your opponent will probably resent it if you do it in PBEM.

Another advantage of an intermediate level of command is the following: let's say Rundstedt is in charge of AGS and he builds up a lot of OPs. Then he is supposed to give an OP bonus to subordinate HQs. Again, I can't give you the exact formula.

IMHO, it is either gamey or a waste of good leaders to create a hierarchy with more than 3 levels of command. I am in favour of banning Alt-H on HQs altogether :cool:
