You do know a game is an interpretation, just as your comment is an interpretation? I find it a lot of fun to find how the designer chooses to designate leadership factors. For instance, no game has gotten Rosecrans leadership qualities right.
Yes...the withdrawer trait was added to most Polish leaders to help them avoiding being systematically crushed in battle by the Swedes. It showed during beta it was a good way to simulate the type of warfare that was seen in Poland by then
I think we could incorporate stats in this thread aswell.
I start with one, the swedish general Carl Gustaf Armfeldt should be an 3-2-3 in my opinion. As he had great military experience from wars abroad as h e joined the french army for twelve years he was a great defender against the Russians during GNW and also a good offensive commander. He also was appointed commander of the Finnish part of the Swedish Army so i think he should start or be relocated in Finland.
