Every thing outside of huge is ok if done correctly. Even then,my issue with huge scenario is the setup time and its only a personal issue.

Thanks for asking! Personally, I'm most comfortable and most enjoy scenarios at battalion-level for NATO and regimental-level for Warsaw Pact. Above that I find effective planning and execution too detailed and time consuming to be fully enjoyable (becoming chore-like). This, at least, is my sweet spot and I voted to that effect.

I voted for moderate ---- anything bigger than a division starts to feel like work. 2 brigades or so is my preferred size.

I picked 1 and 2 at this scale. (Both small and moderate.)



But something that I would like to see is a playable Large scenario and then smaller scenarios and variants taken from it... kind of a case study.

Brother against Brother did this with '1st Manassas'.
