Re:Brigadier Bar Wed, 31 October 2012 22:04
I think withdrawn scenarios do remain in one's SFTF record.

In my SFTF record there are many scenarios that I have played that are no longer available.

The career database records scenario ID (and other data). For the record the scenario has to exist when it was played.

What does happen if the scenario is deleted or altered is that it may not be able to be replayed.

Maybe, but you also see gaps like this when extracting to excel

I think those gaps are from when you have unfinished matches. You start a game but both players leave the game.
But I might be wrong.

Or the gaps might be from battles that wouldn't load or crashed. That happened more often in the past.

From the quote on the wiki, it makes it sound like if a battle is deleted, so are the relevant results. I'm not sure why DoW would mention that if it didn't occur.

The wiki is simply that...a wiki. Anyone can go in and change the information, so it is not an official word on things.

That doesn't mean it's wrong, but simply because it's on the wiki doesn't mean that DoW said it. Smile

Re:Brigadier Bar Fri, 16 November 2012 16:19
Congratulation Mr Bluze.

Did anyone find out the clue to get the promotion.

A question has been pointed out in the French forum about the General promotion requirements.

Are the matchs in expert mode against Colonels (and Général) can be one of the solutions ?
At the beguining of the quest, all the Colonels (now promoted General) played together in expert mode. So we gathered, at those times, games and sometimes victories against Colonel and new fresh promoted General. It can explain the wave of promotion in the first quarter of 2012.
Now, Colonel promotions seem to be more rare. Maybe, because new Colonels play too much against lower garde players and don't reach an achievement based on the number of games and/or victories against Colonels or General.

Have think about this question ?

Re:Brigadier Bar Sat, 17 November 2012 01:16
Interesting question, Mr_Simon.

If that is a criterion, it cannot be the only criterion. Example: Buidheo played only two Expert games between his promotion and his previous Standard game. Both were against Player1019937, who is currently a First Lieutenant.

That example doesn't eliminate the possibility, since there could be multiple criteria.

You didn't ask about this, but looking at the last 20 players to be promoted to Brigadier, only 3 of them were promoted after a Standard game against a player ranked Colonel or higher.

I agree with you but maybe playing expert games against colonels ornhigher can be one the multiple criterions.

Re:Brigadier Bar Mon, 19 November 2012 23:30
Hi !

Indeed, promoted just after a defeat in the league Very Happy !

I have just came from France to tell you about my career, hoping that it can help you who are searching the requirement since a long time now.

Here is the detail of my career in normal online game :

		west	east	med.	pac.	Total
AXIS	Victory	41	37	31	32	141
	Lost	22	13	12	11	58
	Total	63	50	43	43	199
	% Vict.	65%	74%	72%	74%	71%
ALLIES	Victory	47	33	26	28	134
	Lost	15	20	12	16	63
	Total	62	53	38	44	197
	% Vict.	76%	62%	68%	64%	68%
TOTAL	Victory	88	70	57	60	275
	Lost	37	33	24	27	121
	Total	125	103	81	87	396
	% Vict.	70%	68%	70%	69%	69%


Here is my whole expert career (only 15 max solo expert games) :

 		west	east	med.	pac.	Total
AXIS	Victory	23	22	27	19	91
	Lost	18	11	14	9	52
	Total	41	33	41	28	143
	% Vict.	56%	67%	66%	68%	64%
ALLIES	Victory	23	20	21	16	80
	Lost	17	13	10	8	48
	Total	40	33	31	24	128
	% Vict.	58%	61%	68%	67%	63%
TOTAL	Victory	46	42	48	35	171
	Lost	35	24	24	17	100
	Total	81	66	72	52	271
	% Vict.	57%	64%	67%	67%	63%


Finally, here is my expert career since Colonel :

		west	east	med.	pac.	Total
AXIS	Victory	13	20	25	17	75
	Lost	14	7	14	9	44
	Total	27	27	39	26	119
	% Vict.	48%	74%	64%	65%	63%
ALLIES	Victory	13	18	21	14	66
	Lost	11	10	8	8	37
	Total	24	28	29	22	103
	% Vict.	54%	64%	72%	64%	64%
TOTAL	Victory	26	38	46	31	141
	Lost	25	17	22	17	81
	Total	51	55	68	48	222
	% Vict.	51%	69%	68%	65%	64%


I played 396 online game... So probably 400 is not the requirement. On the other hand, during my time as a colonel, I played 5 solo games... Which make 401 games played as a colonel on official scenario... Maybe a coincidence.

I was promoted colonel the 17th of may 2012... So it took me exactly 6 month to General as I have been promoted the 18th of november. Again, probably a coincidence... Definitely not a one year requirement anyway... But 6 months ?..

Well, more questions, and still no answer :s... A great mistery. I hope my information can help Smile.

Before my flight back, maybe I could enjoy a billiard game or two with some of you Very Happy. Of course, I brought you some champaign crates to thank you for all the clues I found there Smile.

Please enjoy Smile.

See you on the battlefield Very Happy

Brigadier Silenttimo and Général de Brigade Droopy007,

Welcome to the house.


This is indeed not a heavenly place. It is actually another fine mess you got into. I hope we will keep away from this double trouble.


@Dietrich: I think we have found another use for the pool.

Re:Brigadier Bar Fri, 23 November 2012 11:14
What a nice way to welcome newcomers !

I still don't know how I got in.

Let's see what I did since I became a colonel :

- 397 fights on official maps (including Warsaw, Rhzev, Tunisia and so on) ;
- 287 wins on those maps ;
EDIT :
- at least 5 wins for each side, each front on official maps, those wins being on at least 3 different maps for each front.
- I have won at least 3 maps with both axis and allies on each front.


- 251 fights on expert maps ;
- 171 wins overall (lots against Johnny !)
- at least 35 wins on each front, at least 15 wins on each side per front ;
- wins with each side on at least 9 different maps per front ;
- wins on at least 10 different maps for each side, each front ;
- about 55 wins over "real" players ;
- more than 20 wins over different high ranked players (from Lt Colonel to general) on expert maps ;
- I gave an evaluation of maps played each time I was not forgetting to give a rating (overall : few 1 star, lots of 2 stars, little bit more than few 3 stars) ;

- as a colonel, I think I have beaten at least one person of each rank from cadet to general (expert or normal map).

- as a colonel, on expert & official maps, I believe I have more than 100 wins over more than 30 different Lt colonels and above (I haven't checked what is the exact figure) since I became a colonel.


EDIT : thanks for your messages anyway !

General Jeronimon,

If I humbly may ask you to serve us one more time. We have been running out of cake. Would you be able to get some whipped cream pie? Preferably whipped with a whip offcourse.

Thank you.

Thank you both, Phread and Helcat!

Well, Mark, the reason why it took me so long to join this gentleman's club is because the bar wasn't serving but alcohol drinks until recently. It was only a few days ago that I convinced the manager to provide generous milk glasses to those who, like myself, have been celebrating Anthony Burgess's "Clockwork Orange" half a century Smile

So, next round of Milk-plus is on me! Bartender!!

Clearly, you were talking with the ones who spiked their milkshakes when I got in. The barkeep sometimes does have a heavy hand. His milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, and some of them haven't been seen since.

In any case, welcome to the club, Andre. Well earned!

And welcome, also, Valentin.

I've been expecting you both in here for a long time!

And we stopped serving the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster due to the screaming. Razz

Hello good Sirs,

I'm glad to (finally) get admittance to this esteemed establishment. Thanks to all who played me, especially those who lost Very Happy Very Happy

For those who are still figuring out what it takes to get promoted to general: what tipped the balance (in my opinion) were the victories at Viipuri in preparation for the Eastern Front tournament.

@ Jeronimon : I'm looking forward for an M44 tournament somewhere in the Netherlands. I'm counting on you and Erik to get that tournament to the same level as the one at Louvain.

Greetings to all!
See you on the battlefield!
