I've always liked this idea. The number of 20-men-regiments with colonel, lt-colonel, majors, captains and lieutenants is staggering and annoying.

This is sadly very true. I firmly believe that Lieutenant or Captain is a high enough rank for a regimental leader. Only if you pull an attendance of 30 and over and have multiple compagnies (line/light/arty/cav) should calling yourself Major be somewhat justified.

Just a quick update to this. The XIV Corps is setting up so all units are individuals that are working toward a common goal. The way we are trying to set up a event will also ensure that each person from a leader all the way to a private has something to do. No more of this one leader micros every unit on the field.

So you have to do everything yourself like you would if you ran your own regiment but you have some degree of autonomy taken away and overall battlefield direction. I don't really see people buying into this - maybe I am missing the pros of it but regiment seem to be able to communicate pretty well as is on the field

My main philosophy is let regiments run how they want to run. There should be no "legislation" to change how those regiments should be run, as some of them are merely gaming communities coming over and not "clan" regiments.

Yeah, the best way to run a "larger community" in my eyes is to give all involved regiments their own form of indepence. They can play how they wish to play and run their own line how they wish to. High command of the said community would only interfere if the regiment in question would break community guidelines or event rules.

A lot of big communities did use to have an active chain of command in-game, as in giving orders to different brigades/regiments and focussing their troops in a specific area of the map. These brigade events were pretty fun, but as time went on and general attendance began to dwindle, these events became pretty much impossible to recreate. These brigade events were only once a week tho.

Let regiments function independently. War of Rights wanted to implement a chain of command system. Look at how that game ended up.

well I mean these brigade events I'm referring to are strictly giving orders to regiments within their own communities, so it's not like the event organizer has any say on it.
