Wow, and I thought the rule was harsh when I realized I couldn't use a volunteer brigade!
Although I love the minutia and do like to know as best I can what is going on, I translate it internally into heuristics that guide my actual play. Stuff like: hang around depots, bring more force than the enemy, don't march around in the winter, don't waste a bunch of money on a navy, 6 lbers suck. No matter how much I learn about the actual numbers and mechanics there is too much going on to be able to actually predict, leaving a seat-of-the-pants approach as the most effective (only) way to actually play the game. This is not a game where min-maxing is practicable, but I am still going to spend hours trying to solve the puzzle with every detail I can get!
