Thank you for this warm welcome, Oberst Hdescavernes!!! Smile
It was completely unplanned to get promoted on D-Day but that coincidence really spiced that moment up nicely Smile
Actually, I was unaware of the fact that some scenarios that were not required for the promotion when they launched Colonel rank (like Gallabat) are now required, so I completely by chance played Gallabat that day, won as Axis (also a rare occasion) and got a beautiful surprise Very Happy

A very warm welcome to Colonel #100 Colonel JDRommel.

From Colonel #1 a very hearty congratulations to the 100th Colonel.

Well done Colonel. Please tell us about your journey to the rank of Colonel.



Hello,
My journey to the rank of Colonel ?
A very long and hard journey, I play from the beginning (06 june 2010) as a tester and I lose a lot of games (You can see the number of games I have already played to reach that rank).
Generally I play just some scenarios because I like them (and not because I am sure to win... I am never sure to win !!!)

That's the game.

Jdrommel.

Re:Welcome to new Colonels! Wed, 18 July 2012 06:20
Thanks for the welcome - happy to be here! And thanks to all of my opponents - the late night PST crowd is kind of small but dedicated, and always fun to play.

(I have turned on the game on a Saturday afternoon, just to see the mix, and I am shocked to see 80+ players - sometimes at 11pm PST it is down to 10...)

Japanese Counterattack was a huge hurdle for me as the Axis - I kept having these visions of me as the Japanese soldier, my hand firmly in the cookie jar, as the Marines turned the lights on...

Then came Klin - 9 losses as the Russians, had to resort to looking at some of your replays to find a proper strategy (thanks, Phread, Jeronimon, and Quit2). Thanks also to a certain duck who was kind enough to share some hints that I read after getting the win.

Promotion achieved on my birthday, no less!

My stats are posted in the "Colonel Promotion Requirements 2012" thread, hope they help the next 105 Colonels.

Now if I could just find that blasted Ambush card, I had it a second ago... Rolling Eyes

Thanks for the welcome. Unfortunately for me, my son beat to the rank of colonel by a week or two and thus is my "superior" by reason of "date of rank." (Those of you who actually served in the armed forces understand the term.)

My son also has a very high effectiveness rating, or whatever it is called. I, on the other hand, barely beat 1500. I think that I will give the possibility of achieving a star a temporary pass while I just play to see what happens.

First of all Wings1964, thank you for your service. Second, your son deserves any and all "date of rank" privileges as he is one smart cookie. He ranks high in espionage skills one might say.

And, last but not least, congratulations my friend, on reaching the exalted rank of Colonel. That is no easy feat, even if they're webbed (pun intended).

I look forward to many future battles - that is, whenever I leave the seclusion of my post 'up the river.' You really need to be a lucky duck to catch me nowadays.

Re:Welcome to new Colonels! Wed, 05 September 2012 18:04
Hello,
I'm a new french colonel Smile

So, with my english language, I will try to resume my career when I was "lieutenant colonel":

I played 248 games in multiplayers with "classic" maps and 3 in multiplayers with "expert" maps.
For information, since the beginning of my career, i played 559 games and won 339 (rate of 60.6%).

I won 160 games (+2 in expert mode).
I played with 43 "cadet"(27 different). Some of them have been promoted.
I won all maps with both sides (except utah and carentan)

See you soon on battlefields Very Happy

Congratulations as well.
Glad you found someone to play with...every time i go on the site there are no open games and so very, very few people that after a while i just play against johnny the ai cadet computer....sigh.

they need to put up some new games...

some official games that even those without the advanced package (like me and i assume you) have. there are tons of scenarios in the expansions and campaign books...it seems as if days of wonder has given up on the site...

(i still play the board game, as i have since it came out; just got the new expansion with all the cool toys)

Ahem, yes Phread, there is still space, there is indeed.

The question is, will you still be there when the new Colonels arrive?

Also, no pets allowed.
