Yes BUT as Andy said

95%+ of end users never bothered to even switch it on. Which is why it never made it here, as the coding effort is not worth the hassle for what would be a niche option that just a few die-hard grognards would utilise.
and that still holds true now.....There's a cadre of players who what to pile complexity onto the game in the name of "realism" that would kill the interest in the game for the actual majority that DO play it and enjoy it as it is now and if a complex " fog of war" option was what the majority of players wanted we'd have heard about it a LOT more than we do

Yep, and then if there was an orders system and commanders got special command points then the special nations would need compensation, i.e. more expensive leaders.

The game does not charge anything for leaders ATM. And that would get complaints from players that they were having to spend more for German platoons, companies etc, and the Soviets less, for a system they did not utilise.

Heck when I played 1/300 at national level in the 70s and 80s, one of the first things players lobbied for was not to have to buy night fighting gear since all competition battles were meeting engagements in good quality daylight. Only TI was charged for when we moved onto the TTG "Challenger" rules which allowed some visibility through smoke with them - I think the older WRG 1950+ rules did not even have thermals.

We dont enforce army lists either. Though some PBEM leagues have some sort of house rules as to what is gamey. One of my first competition games was WW2 and one player turned up with 99% off-map arty (which he did not have to buy models of!) and a FO team... next year, basic army lists were in play. (That happened in the early Warhammer nationals too - someone's entire army in year 1 was 1 (one) invisible dragon with no model required, he just plotted where it was on some paper. A very economic army, once again - and there were army lists in play the next year there too!)
