to add a practical example, in case anyone missed it in the Japanse strategy thread)

say you have a IJA Div, Exp 70 with a leader with overall values of 70 attacking a US Regimental Combat team with the same stats...your average modified result in a clear unfortified hex will be 5-7:1 odds.

Change the US leader to 20 and you'll get modified odds about 5-6 times greater. (31-39:1 odds)

When resting ... how much does fatigue get reduced? (happy with the case of bear, rests well, not happy means less rest as too busy whining)

When working ... how much morale do you loose from being tired? (unhappy will mean even more unhappy, happy workers not affected)

Think about them like that.

Wow. Great stuff! Great, Great stuff!

Any chance we can get similar sort of information on Leadership/Inspiration values? I've never really understood the difference. But I've got in in my head the Leadership trumps Inspiration.

But I've been wrong before. Just ask my wife...

That's a very helpful list! I guess I need to pay more attention to leaders. I tend to be lazy about air leader in particular. And I hadn't fully understood this one:

quote:

aggression roll by TF commander effects chance of Bombard TF to change mission to Surf-Com


So *that* explains it.

SKILL = Leadership?

Yes? If so, I would assume that Leadership effects go far beyond the single line "effects pilot experience gain".

Hi,
what about the ranks of the commanders, the characteristics they have (aggressiveness etc.) and what best they are suited for (carrier fleet etc.)? How does the above mentioned combine with the latter ? No, formulas please, just a little bit more insight.

I do know that the ranks don't give any actual benefit. The rank only dictates what they can and cannot command (as in, you won't be able to select a CPT to be flag officer for your TF, unless he is it by default, you'll only get the choice of Admirals or whatever, to command the TF).

I'm pretty sure that skill does -not- equal leadership. Skill is a separate rating. If you look in the editor, or some of the xls files available at Spooky's site, you can see the individual skill ratings (in air, land, sea, admin).

Same for moral and inspiration, they are different. Moral is a number that all units have separately, and it fluctuates. If you pull up a leaders "inspiration" rating, it is separate from the units moral rating.

That "best suited for" is telling you what their highest skill rating is (air, land, sea, admin). Now their highest skill rating may still suck, but it's what they're best at.

Now all we have to do is figure out how to keep the leaders where they are supposed to be and all will be right with the world!

If you’re duly prepared for the game and know everything about it then it will be boring game with unhistorical outcome… you think that those "typos" in the manual regarding production output are real typos… ?

I thought, and as I understand it was confirmed by testers, that leaders with high admin ratings significantly speed up repair, but this ability is not listed!? Can someone explain this please?

Dunno if this was actually CONFIRMED - last i heard it was being tested, though.

This was my doing. I'm going to test it when I can sit down at my computer more than 5 minutes at a stretch and figure out the editors.

Not necesarily true, but it is the rule rather than the exception. There are a few that are basically equally bad in many respects, but the highest values doesn't guarantee that is what sets the command type.

One question I have from the listing that Joel/Gary put together. It's fairly straight forward as to what you want in an air commander, land commander and surface ship commander. What about a CV commander ? Not many of the examples hit on characteristics that appear to be critical to a flattop driver.

Good general skill and non-agressive makes good flattop boss ... you want him to get the jump if closed by a surface group but non-agressive so he runs away asap!

And non aggressive so the AI does not break contact with friendly forces and completely screw the awkward order structure which players are burdened with and tried to organize. Nothing worse than having your CVs (worse still, a portion thereof) break off and abandon their CAP duties to close with the enemy when the players intent was to stay in the same hex. Completely blows the game and in no way can be explained as CO choice.

Hi, I wonder why those things only happen to some players and not to others.
I have never had a CV TF run off to fight unless that it what I wanted it to do. (Yes I use the CV react order and also used it in UV)
