Land Combat Experience
I find that this practical needs to be altered. The problem I currently have is that I’m overrunning my enemies due to my doctrines. My battles don’t last 5-10 days, they last 3-5 hours. That means my generals and my troops and my practicals are not going up and as my doctrines get discovered and my troops become more and more competent, the battles will last shorter and shorter amounts of time as I crush through my enemies.
Now personally I think there is nothing to be learned from 100,000 corpses. I would think there is more to be learned from victories and defeats. So, if my men perform brilliant encirclements and breakthroughs, they should be rewarded for those successful actions, instead of gaining lots of experience for essentially WWI tactics of throwing men into a meat grinder and hoping you win a battle. I think that some of the exp rewards should come from successful combat events. Since the loss of 1,000 men in a battle is not particularly bright, if you can make your losses 10% of that, with the correct doctrines that help you win your battles much more quickly.
