What game functions are in place for the Leaders Corps Commading rating? Nappy could command 6 corps, Wellington 3, etc. Is this version taking that into account?
I do have a question. Do the leaders not have a tactical maximum rating?
MCP and Hoche have basically the same question. The game rules state the following:
18.104.22.168 Tactical Maximum Ratings
Each leader has a “tactical maximum rating”. If commanding more corps than this rating, the leader's tactical rating is reduced by “-1”,. Regardless of the number of corps commanded, the tactical rating can never be modified to below zero.
For example, if Napoleon, with a tactical maximum rating of “6” and a tactical rating of “5”, commands from seven to twelve corps, the tactical rating is reduced from “5” to “4”. He cannot command more than twelve corps.
All corps participating in a battle are counted for determining a commander's tactical rating.
No leader may command more corps than twice his tactical maximum. If additional corps are present in the location, they do not participate in the battle, but must retreat as per 0 if their side is required to do so.
There are many compromises which occur in translating a boardgame into a PC game and as a humble betatester I can't promise whether this will be in the final game or not. We need commentary from Marshall to confirm/deny/explain all design decisions.
