Long time in Lowry's Panzerfaust magazine (by the way I am looking for issues and games of Greenwood's Panzerfaust), there was an article, I believe, by Richard Hamblen. The title was something like this, A Factor is a Factor is a Factor (except when it is not). He was examining how two different designers designed their ACW games- Gettyburg 1964 and Chacellorsville (1st Edition). After careful study, he concluded that he felt that he understood why most units were rated as they were, but then again there were enough exceptions to throw out his (simple or complex) reasoning out altogether.
