Ok so what other option do you have with these major Generals. If you promote them then they will loose skill points and the same skill points no mater what it is not random. And according to what people are saying they will not be promoted to the LT General unless I manually assign them.
Am I missing some obscure detail from the rules or what.
Oh, you promote them and take your chances since otherwise they just sit there and never get used.
Just be grateful when you assign them if the stats don't change.
Also, I was not aware that they really got "promoted" when you assign them to a position above their rank. I have a lot of German Major Generals commanding corps right now, but it may be that they started that way. The next time I assign a Major General to a corps I will verify that they really got promoted.
They are always promoted to Lt General when assigned to a corps and the skill is always identical not random. Which means they might as well lower these particular skills and start these guys as Lt Generals.
Sorry got to violently disagree with you
Just did a number of trials where the sequence was load saved game, move random unit, replace leader in XXXXII Korps with some Major General, rinse and repeat
Results in order for each new Leader:
Weiss, lose one pol, one inf point
Brandenberger, lose one inf point
Raus no change
Grassner no change
Kleeman no change
Weiss lose one morale, one inf point
Kleeman no change
Brandenberger no change
Grassner lose one pol, one admin point
Note that only Kleeman got the same result twice and that was no change.
Looks random for me, but I do need to do a couple of hundred trials to really confirm it
I did note that in every case they were promoted to Lt. General so you only have to suffer once unless now you want to move one up to Army
