Isn't representing history kind of the point? It's the old playability versus accuracy debate. A topic unique to historical gaming.

POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Slingshot magazine (published by the Society of Ancients), Richard Taylor remarks that:
…wargames do a fair but not great job of representing history, and could do better…
On a scale of 0 (no interest) to 10 (I demand it now!), how interested are you in seeing game designers do a better job of representing history with their rule systems?
