Excellent points Narwhall, agree 100% with all those.
I especially liked higher death rate of generals, as currently stacks can have more leaders then the actual troops(unlucky typhoon hit
) There are too many generals around.
And most importantly: It is not an issue playing against AI(as player can control casualty rates for AI offensive moves) but after the first 2 years of any pbem game, depleted elements are a real problem. The only solution currently is to hide,and move them far from the enemy to prevent them giving big NM hit after battle. Disbanding is not an option because 2 element depleted Grenadier giving 2 NM 64 VP loss.
Edit: maybe construction time of depot bns can be shortened also, losing elements and moderate density battles doesnt satisfy demand for replacements for depleted troops.
