I have never in my life heard it this way and I greatly disagree. Tactics definitely involves groups of units.
 
Furthermore grand strategy games are not strategy, they are grand strategy, hence the name. Strategy is eminently possible with a few thousand units or even many hundred. And strategy is not economics. Economic strategy could be economics, but military strategy is military.

 

 

I'm in agreement on that, I thought the classification was a little off.  I had commented it originally but removed that part because I thought I came across to aggressively. and figured I would ignore it.  However, what I would like to see is a list that expresses this clearly.  Someone taking ownership of these terms that is a trusted source.  And so far both of you have made reference to terms without expressing a source for it.  So far, your statement sounds more credible, but references would be great.  Thanks!

 

 

Also what kind of idiot refers to a whole nations army as 10 million soldiers? What the hell kind of nation are you talking about?

 

 

However, I thought this section was a bit rough.  I mean you no offense, but I'd like things to remain constructive, and I felt this response was a little too negative.  

 

 

Most nations don't even have 10 million people total. The United Stats Army, the second largest in the world, after China, has a little over 2 million soldiers, with almost a million only on reserve duty.
 
Most nations have a few hundred thousand total or less and obviously only some of them in any given war and only some in any given battle in a war.

 

 

But for useful information, I'm glad you brought this part up.  Those are numbers I hadn't even thought about.  I wasn't too concerned with it though.   I'm planning on using a somewhat low number.  Such as squads of 10 to 40, but potentially a hundred or so of those across a planet, which will be broken up into different map managers, and probably split on to different servers.
