Kagato23, I think you have explained this the best so far, and your observations and theory on CWL Stack being weak are very slick.
If anyone is still unsure on this topic, I suggest you re-read Kagato's posts.
Hey, thanks smoker. It's nice to know somebody was actually reading my long, drawn out posts.
(And even liked them!)

But if that were the case, then Jillian's stack would be a lot more powerful than Caesar's stack, because they'd get her 9 AND his CWL 4-5, whereas his stack would only get his 9-10. That's the bit that stumps me about the idea of CWL stacking with WL bonuses.
Already been said, but Jillian is not a chief warlord. Caesar is, and I'm pretty sure they do stack. I actually hadn't thought about this aspect of it before, but, if you don't mind, I'd like to use this factoid to argue my own theories. I think the way Vinny described the bonus' on that page is telling. Now we know from that one that Caesar has the baddest bat-stack in the group. Now, the way Translvito works, I doubt any of it's warlords are especially weak, so again, if Warlords gave their full bonus to their stacks like CWL do, one would assume that it'd be their best subordinate guy attacking the main stack, and not Caesar! Which I think reinforces the assumption that Warlords don't give full bonus, but something like .5 or less. Which is why Jillian is the second wave after Stanley has at least taken a few hits and not the one charging in. Considering Caesar's dislike of Jillian, he'd have had no problem putting her in front, which, considering her dislike of Stanley, she'd probably have been arguing FOR if she really would have by and far the strongest stack. So I'm thinking Caesar thought he had the best shot of anybody in the hex (and was probably right), and that Jillian, as the second strongest, made the better runner up.
It'd be great if we'd seen more of Parson using those glasses of his, (especially when Ansom was first Decrypted) we would probably have been able to determine with certainty most of the things we've speculated on.
