Do you put -2 leaders on your designs?

Refusing to have a 10-3 leader in a scenario because it is overpowered is like shunning a scenario because it has a Tiger in it.
All is in the VC and other design choices, such as the overall leadership quality (and the number of leaders).
Also, a player is very tempted to use his 10-3 daringly, thus reducing its survival probability. And even if he is careful, there are dangerous moves that one will make with less powerful leaders, which will put a 10-3 in harm's way (with a potentially bad outcome for it too).
There's a disproportionate amount of scenarios with Tigers in them! I try and avoid them too!...well I think 10-3s are more unbalancing to a scenario - you can always swarm a Tiger after all.

When Tigers were historically there, it is more debatable not to include them in a scenario than to choose not to include a 10-3, though.
That said I am not fascinated by Tigers.
I have my "end war heavy metal" moments, but I think that I prefer tin cans or average tanks over super heavyweights most of the time.

This is one of the many reasons why I enjoy playing the DTO scenarios so much.
Even though the Tigers managed to make an appearance there as well towards the end. Truth be told, I enjoy playing the scenarios with Tigers included and in my ASL experience, the Tigers seem to have just as many weaknesses/flaws as many of their opponents in the system.

Tigers are indeed overrated.
I prefer Panthers.
But those can also be overcome - if the means to kill them or to circumvent them are available...
