I've tried to start playing as minor nations to add some diversity to my game play. In one of my games I chose to play as Sweden. I worked extreamly hard researching techs, building IC, building up my army/navy/air force, and trying to speed out my leadership points to gain officers and spies. In 1940 I declared war on Norway, only to find that all my hard work was for nothing. Sweden has maybe 2 navel leaders, 2 air force leaders, and a few army leaders. Most of my divisions went without leaders and were beaten. Minor nations automatically give you a tough game to start with but if you get the upper hand your game play is again nerfed because you can run into a problem like not having any leaders. I find it very hard to believe that Sweden only had 2 navel leaders???? I think in the next update more leaders need to be added to minor countries.
