BTW, the pre-poll suggestion link points to the Terry Pratchett thread.

The venerable 3:1 rule for overwhelming force is based on an assumption of two forces with roughly similar composition, material condition, and skill.

Do you prefer tabletop games that emphasize tactics where roughly similar forces compete for similar or asymmetric objectives or techniques where heterogeneous and dissimilar forces try to leverage their unique capabilities against each other?

Obviously, the reality of wargaming isn't a dichotomy, but a continuum along multiple dimensions.

I have two main preferences:
Tactics Plus
Forces with similar capabilities but one significant difference in composition such as the infantry/cavalry ratio.
Techniques Extreme
Skirmishes with very different individual combatants.
