This has more to do with experience, but ok in battle the guy that is actualy there and that might die :smile: aka the general will he be present and will he give a boost to the efficiency of the troops in the battalion?

Leaders have been dropped. Check the "cutting room floor" thread in general.

The "Cutting Room Floor" doesnt seem to be up to date.
I checked it and didnt find any news about leaders being cut (I must admit that the thread is big however).

Maybe it might be good to give little updates on what is being cut or planned to be cut.

No military leaders! that's a bad choice IMO.I hope the WW2 game will include them.

What disturbs me is that this feature got cut before being mentioned in the "The Cutting Room Floor".

Maybe more has been cut and we just dont know yet...

Well, I might have overstated. We still have them but their importance was greatly reduced and you can't change them. Are we sure this was missed entirely on the forum? I thought we asked about this...

I'll do some poking around and if I can't find the details, I'll get them posted...

There shouldn't be any other things that got missed, we've not cut much lately.

Are we talking Battalion leaders or of something different?

In the Beta right now, the Battalion leaders are aways LTs and their exp does not move after combat.

We may be talking about different things here.

Battalion leaders should be a Major, Lt.s are platoon commanders. The most dangerous thing on the battfield is a 2nd Lt. with a compass.

Mostly because of implementation time, and a lack of polish. The same way that we won't release the game until it is finished, we don't want any sections in the game that are not up to standards. With the loss of the hierarchy, the leaders became less important and any screens that allowed moving leaders around got really ugly and cumbersome.
