Number of playerds on a side, number and type of units per player.
i.e.:
"Eight player game. Each player controls one Platoon of infantry (3 squads of 8 figures each) or one Platoon of Armor (4 vehicles)."
If you want to call that "Squad Level" or "Platoon Level" or "Company Level", that should be determined by the detail level of the rules you're using.
i.e.:
"This is a Skirmish Level Game. Figures resolve movement and combat individually."
"This is a Squad Level Game. Figures resolve movement and combat by stand of figures or individual vehicle."
This is a Platoon Level Game. Figures resolve movement and combat player-by-player."

Note: These hypothetical games assume players with a lot of time on their hands. :-D

POLL DESCRIPTION

Angel Barracks Inactive Member wonders...

Based on my earlier question, it seems that there is no universally accepted way of defining a games level, and that quite possibly no one cares for that kind of label, anyway.

Is the need for a level description worthwhile when so many people disagree as to what a specific level is?

Is it better to describe in a sentence what the level is, rather than a single word definition?

For example:

In this game you control ten companies of infantry that make up a battalion.
