I can perhaps find some time to add them in the details window though.

Sure if it's too easy to fire him everyone and his horse would do it, but I wonder if our "design by effect" is really acceptable. But I don't have any good alternative neither, sorry
Pocus wrote:That's the problem, perhaps it is somehow gamey to impact up to 50% of his VP to the Union player if he demotes Mc Clellan, but you have to remember that you will have to handle him while your VPs are still low, so the important point is : 100 POL = -20 Morale. And such number is needed to be sure you will more often than not prefer to keep him as an army commander, thus having a lethargic Union in the Potomac.
If the cost is too low, the Mc Clellan 'problem' does not exists, and you will see the union concentrate as much as possible troops and steamroll without problems to Richmond.
