Transition point or not, it was a wargame. Period.
And to top it all, why call it a RPG element if it was introduced in a wargame?
It is a wargame element.
It is not about agreeing with or not.
When a plate has no food in it, getting people to agree there is food in it wont fill up the belly. It is another round of magical thinking.
XCOM is not a RPG, people agree with that or not.
And the question was about finding the influence of RPG onto it.
Another point: campaign existed in wargaming before the 1970s. Campaigning is what induces the requirement for units to turn from rookies into veterans.
