In your opinion, once Prussia enters the war on Coalition side, is it worth to be defended, or is it better to let it surrender, to allow Stein's reforms and possible insurrection afterwards?
Obviously I mean in the long term, considering the Coalition's winning conditions.
Pros are the 2 cards/year drawn for controlling Prussia (unless you already get 10 from GB+R+A), and the fact that each battle + winter attrition gives some possibility to inflict French permanent losses.
However, while defending small Prussia with all my British and Russian corps available, I see these nice "Stein" corps (Blucher and co) out of play, and I wonder: "why the hell am I spending energies preventing these nice corps from ever coming into play"?
There is a so big difference between Prussian armies before and after Stein...

I play the long term game. It comes down to bleeding the french with permanent losses. As for Prussia, it is all situational. What is the diplomatic card situation? How well are the french doing? How many coalition allies are active? Where are the French armies? How long will Prussia hold out? etc.

The decision is not automatic for me.

While it's worth wondering, I agree that it is not an automatic decision.
