The rules allow for a certain degree of 'localization' . So, no blanket GA are Bullet and French are Blade in the NYW and a reversal in the WSS. More of - the majority of each side follows the accepted pattern and an agreed proportion of each can be the opposite ie:
NYW French mainly Blade but an agreed minority are Bullet - reflecting individual colonels' tactical preferences.
