Amid growing concerns with professionalism, conduct, and leadership among Navy and Marine Corps officer ranks, a working group was assembled to improve leaders in the areas of tactical understanding, money management, and impersonal leadership methods.

In a memo from the working group released this week, it was concluded that officers need to undergo more tactical training sooner — and their unique recommendation for the training method: Starcraft.

Starcraft II, a strategy game made by Activision Blizzard, is a Real-Time Strategy (RTS) game. The player must choose when to focus on growing economy, when to raise a standing army, and how to counter the tactics used by the opposing player; all important skills for military officers and leaders of all levels.
