Rank Breakdown Tue, 28 June 2011 05:57
I just checked the ranks page. Below is the current breakdown of ranks

Colonel - 2
Lt Colonel - 49
Major - 300
Captain - 260
1st Lt - 1,213
2nd Lt - 2,700
Cadets - 15,860

There you have it. I'm sure there is a glut of Cadets who have not even played yet.

Nice post GIJohn

I wonder who the next Colonel will be.
I'm plugging away but still have some work to do Rolling Eyes )

wow 15000 cadets with more waiting in the wings. I think that's an impressive start for the on line version

I wish they would make online versions of the other games. I probably never would have bought Memoir '44 if I hadn't had so much fun with the online one. I've always been intimidated by hex based games, but this is really fun.

I probably wouldn't have tried it if they hadn't mentioned 20-30 minute game completion times. I'm glad I did though because the first two hex (sorta) board games I've tried have been winners. This one and Settlers of Catan.

The current rank breakdown is below:

Colonel: 4
Lt Colonel: 52
Major: 322
Captain: 270
1st Lt: 1309
2nd Lt: 2840
Cadet: 16,670

Interestingly, the Majors have more numbers than Captains. That is because of the 'long slog' from Major to Lt Colonel. I like the fact that its more difficult to move up the ladder.

The Cadet numbers are no doubt the result of 'band of brother' achievement wanna bees.

And once you make Colonel you are removed from the Lt Colonel list.

I was the 5th to make Lt Col. and I am no longer in that list.

Re:Rank Breakdown Fri, 08 July 2011 13:53
Simple answer is no

in the "promotion thread" (see the link), i have listed all of the things that i think might contribute to the promotion.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=22532&start=0

But as to what is the magic last item most people require, i'm not sure about.

I suspect that it might be losing to a cadet who gains promotion by your defeat.

Anyway have a look at the other thread as lots of people have thrown in various ideas

Just keep playing and hopefully you will get there in the end

so little time.

(that's what she said...da dum dum dum....)

seriously, GREAT news that we have so many new recruits! the more the merrier...and the more profitable the site for dow, which means the more they will support it and help it grow with new scenarios....can't wait to get more scenarios ported over from the boxed expansions and campaign book etc....

plus there are so many available that people have posted for years....aahhhhh!

it is quite normal there are more majors than captains: not only is the road to lieutennant colonel very long, it is also hard to become captain. Major on the other hand is rather easy. It just takes some time, but is not all that hard.

Current counts:
Colonel 9! (+7 since thread started)
Lt Colonel 63 (+14 (so +21 here and above overall) )
Major 369 (+69 (+90) )
Captain 296 (+41 (+131) )
Lieutenant 1461 (+212(+343) )
Second Lt 3241 (+541(+884) )
Cadet Lots! Around 18721 for those of you keeping score.


Overall a lot of healthy growth, not just in player numbers, but in committed players. +117 to captains and higher indicates a strong core of people playing regularly. +765 to non-cadets indicates people regularly giving the game a fair amount of play.
Well done to the makers of the game for bringing us this gem.
And well done to us for making the play space enjoyable for the people who want to play here.
Will be adding in updates when I think of it. All credit to GI John for starting the thread though.

I just hit Captain yesterday and I'm loving this game, I wish I had found it earlier. After Ticket to Ride, I've been a Days of Wonder fan ever since. I just wish I could get my wife to try something other than Ticket, but she's scared of rules and small print.

My only tiny complaint about the game is I wish it was browser based like Ticket instead of an install. I could get in even more games at work, but alas I don't have administrator rights to install anything.

It would be interesting to know how many players have played < 10, < 50, <100, < 250, <500, < 1000, < 1500, < 2000.

AFAIK there is only 1 > 2000.

I'm at 182 games, I cant even imagine how long it will take to get to 2000.

Also, on the records page at Days of Wonder, why does it show me as having 182 battles on my id card but my spreadsheet log of 2011 only shows 92 battles. I started in June 2011, so this spreadsheet represents all my battles.

Any battles that you fought in the last 15 days will actually be on that particular spreadsheet, You will need to combine the two spreadsheets to have ALL your battles.

I think its important to keep adding new maps to keep things interesting. This will keep players in the fold.

Also, a working editor is key also. As of right now, there are tons of maps by players that can't be added due to significant editor limitations.

I also believe some sort of daily online tourney run by the DoW server would be a bonus as well.

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, the Terrain and Winter Wars maps could be added.

Then down the road, I'd love to see the Breakout scenarios. They would fit if you put the card hands on the left and right side of the screen and allowed the board to fill the entire middle.

But, what is the gameplan? DoW isn't saying. Could we get a comment or two on the future of M44 online?

it is summer for the people of DOW too. During summer season, alot of employees take a few weeks of. They have been working hard all year, so they have earned it.

Please understand that the communication from DoW is a bit delayed during this season, because of temporary "understaffing".

I find it interesting as well to notice that only 959 players are listed in the Established Players Ranking, which is barely more than the sum of ranks captain and higher, plus 10% of firsts.

This is certainely due to the 50 gold limit.

(That said I don't know if the ranking follows the 'not played during the last 15 days' rule).

I understand it's just 20 more wins from Captain to Major. Once you bought the GIs, it shouldn't be too hard.

Also, my last winning game with the free credits should have made me Captain, but it says you get it after the next battle (win or lose). Once I paid, that didn't happen either - it was at or after 24 battles. So the free trial people don't usually end at Captain.

I'd recommend making Major harder, like winning all the Western as either Axis or Allies, either player's choice or both (I haven't done it yet). That would be a good followup to Captain and a good prelude to Lt. Colonel.

I would like to note that Captain have to get 20 victories to Major and Majors need 80 victories across the theatres of operation, so the numbers are slightly skewed. Also this seems to be happening with the Colonels/Lt Cols now, as many push on from half colonel and only a few majors replace the new colonels. Hope that is clear, but it basically means Colonels and Majors will have the majority of the numbers compared to Captains and Lt Colonels as those 2 ranks are moved through quicker for many reasons.

The count would be from the tabs on the Officer Career webpage.

Each page of each tab has 10 entries, so to count 10 per page except the final page which has 1 - 10 entries.

So if a rank, say Colonel has 2 pages with 8 entries on the last page then there are 18 = (2-1)*10 + 8 Colonels.

The formula is count = (num pages -1) * 10 + num entries on last page.
