longest Online win streak Sat, 14 December 2013 18:45
I saw that the current # 1 player recently had an incredible 45 game Online win streak Shocked

These games were against real opponents with nary a bot game to be seen in there. Can anyone come close to topping that?

I believe the best I ever did was 16 games in a row.

Either one is way beyond me! I have not been keeping count, but I rather doubt that any winning streak that I might have exceeds a half dozen games (and may not be that high).

Edit--just out of curiosity, I checked my record for 2013. (Too much trouble to go back to 2012 and 2011). My longest winning streak against all human opponents in 2013, year to date, was actually 10--but, for the most part, I have not come any where near that.

45 ... Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

Waouh, Just unbelievable ! As JA, my best performance is around 10 (more or less) against human (I never play the bot except when I create a SFTF map to test it)

Indeed. In his last 125 games, he is 113-12 for a whopping 90% win rate. In that span he also has a 28 game win streak.

Who is that masked man!

Go to your "Your Account" page and then click on "Rank and Scores details" (which is listed under "My Scores and Ranks").

Once you get to the "My Score and Rank" page you can check on your own status in each of these three ranking types : Online, Expert and Solo by using the drop down menu next to the "Game" label. You may also check on the other players rank by using the drop down menu by the "Display" label.

Maybe I am just unlucky but a 45 game win streak seems extremely hard to achieve without some conscious manipulation of what scenario and who your opponents are.

Does the player ever play in some tournaments?

I don't think he plays in tournaments, but he does play both sides (most of the time) and different maps (but not all of them).
And he plays all kinds of players, from newbies to more experienced high ranks.

That is the part that makes it amazing. A few others have climbed to the top playing just one scenario and some times from one side. He seems to play matches and sometimes against very good players.

I guess it can happen.

In my 17 game win streak, I was lucky in one game in the middle of that run which allowed me to rattle off several more wins in a row.

I think 8 to 12 wins in a row is possible then you need those lucky breaks in between to string two or three of those types of streaks in a row to get there. Possible, yes. Very difficult, indeed. Of course selecting scenarios that have no worse than a 60-40 balance I think would be needed most of the time, which is a degree of manipulation.

And some other times against some very suspicious ones Rolling Eyes

I'm not saying it is the case, but the rankings, victories and general behavior in this game is stuff that can be manipulated too easily. Each player is free to do what he wants, but I give absolutely no credit to rankings, records or achievements anymore.

A very interesting streak.

His first and last wins were against brigadiers. In the middle of the streak, he had one win against a brigadier (a single game on the strong side of a scenario), and I believe three games against people who currently are majors. Everybody else is currently a lieutenant or cadet, and surely more of them were cadets at the time.

What's the old line? Whether or not I agree with what he says, but I'll defend to the death his right to say it?

Hi fellows Smile

I guess you're talking about Ravisy right?
He is currently playing a tournament, ww44#8.
Also,he is pursuing colonel ranks, I guess that's why there is so much cadets in his record.
I played him during the ww44,and told him about his first spot. He told me that he is keeping it because he hasn't played much lately. I think he doesn't care that much.
Anyway,he is a nice person and a worthy opponent, if ever you cross pathes.
About his winning streaks, even against low ranking, 45 still is amazing Shocked ...
Here's all I know.

See you on the field Very Happy

Heck, I am happy when I win 1 in a row, ecstatic when when I win 2 in a row, at 3, might quit the game all together and leave well enough alone since the stars are aligned and all is right with the world!!

No matter how he has done it, the fact remains, he has done it. We have all been in the position of thinking we have WON a game, just on hit on a 1 fig with 2 INF, GRENANDE and/or FLAG needed to win and you blink and next thing you know you are on the losing end!!

Given cards, dice and/or cards and dice can go against you at anytime....impressive nonetheless, model of consistency he is!!!

Like Clorofila said, score and rankings can come and go...can drop and then make your way back up...quickly or slowly, depending on who you play.

Kudos to the 45 game win streak, I know I would take it and currently trying to work on a 1 gamer myself!! LOL!

Droopy, what you say makes complete sense to me. That promotion is a totally sensible reason why somebody might play against a ton of Cadets.

And yes, 45 wins in a row, even if almost all of them are against Cadets, is very impressive. He must be one heck of a player.

In my two earlier posts on this thread, I'll remove parts that might be viewed as negative.

Hi Sam Smile

No need to remove anything. I didn't thought you were offensive,nor anyone else for that matter.
I just thought that since I had some information about the matter, I might as well share it. Still, I might be wrong about what I'm guessing Rolling Eyes .

I think the lomgest I saw before was Silenttimo,with asound 25 wins. Pretty impressive already... So 45 Shocked ! I just don't think it is easy made. Whatever his motives.
If he is such a good player, I don't know, i guess you will find out when you encounter him. He might be indeed.

See you on the field gentlemen Smile

Also, even cadets and lower ranking officers are sometimes very good players as some have pre-Online Memoir '44 experience. I had over 700 games under my belt when I played my first Onlnie game.

I like the way that someone pulls this off, and the first thing to cross a lot of people's minds is to belittle it by implying someone is cheating

I was fortunate to have regular ftf and vassal opponents and thus the opportunity to play a Memoir '44 a lot before DOW launched the Online play.

Playing at WBC for the past several years I never take an opponent lightly. Once I was ousted by a player who only had bought and played the game a month prior him playing at WBC.

How many cadets do you need to play and win to become a Lt. Col. with a ranking of #1 and a score of 1918?
Cheating is not the right word he just has different goals than most of us do.

Just like the saying goes "When your on the top everyone is watching you".

OK lets battle! Razz Razz

Refusing to play cadets because they would cost you ranking points is better?
