In one of my Eckmuhl games I noticed that the Rating on the icon of one of my leaders shows a B in yellow and in the details pane it shows Rating E.

Its a Brigade leader and only his division commander is on the map. First of all yellow means he didn't make his check so how can the icon show B and even if
his commander made the check and gave him a +1 he should have been D I think.

Its not clear to me what this letter on the icon represents. Does anyone know this ?

Manual
Leader that has failed his Command Test will have his Command rating displayed in Yellow in
the Hex Info Area.

Hey Marco,

That's the new indication of what command a leader has. Whether they are a brigade, division, corps, wing or army command. It doesn't indicate what his ratings are. Those still display in the details pane like they always have.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your reaction. I was a bit confused by the letters on the icons but these are simply Brigade(B) Corps (C) enz.
I checked the commands rates for the A03 Approaching Abensberg scenario in Eckmuhl.

Bavarians:
Div. Prince Karl August rating C white => made his check
GB. Rechberg C[D] white => made his check and got a bonus from Karl August
GB. Stengel D[E] yellow => failed his check but still got the bonus from Karl August (?)
GB. Zandt E white => Zandt made is check so shouldn't this be D[E] ? He is part of Karl August's division

Austrians
Div. Kottulinsky D => made his check
GB Hohenfeld D[E] yellow => failed his check but got a bonus from Kottulinsky (?)
GB Weissenwolff E yellow => failed his check unclear why he remains E.

No problem Marco!

I'd have to look at the manual a bit, but maybe someone can chime in before I get to it. I'm not 100% sure, other than there might be some randomization going on. Kind of odd that GB Weissenwolff made it, but didn't get the bonus. I assume all are within the command radius of the higher officers?

Just a guess, could it be that the bonus is only given to one officer who failed his check?
I mean looking at Marcos list it seems that when two failed their checks one got it and the other not.

I can't find anything about it in the manual unfortunately.

That is correct, bonus should be applied to all, I think that is the point of bug.
Have you checked other games on this behavior?

I took a quick look at Marengo and Waterloo. As far as I could see, when a division commanders makes his check he gives a +1 bonus
to his brigade commanders as expected.
