Hurrah Colonel Pedroas! You made it and have valuable info that perhaps General Jero needs to add in to the beginning of this thread...

I have now won my Colonel promotion and I am glad to share with you the requirements that I have found. At the risk of repeating a lot of what has already been stated, and acknowledging the efforts of others, I just feel it would be nice to have everything together.

After winning promotion to Lieutenant Colonel it is necessary to achieve the following. I advise that you start keeping records of the rank played on each game and to keep records of cadets that you play against and if they win promotion as a result of beating you. The reasons for this will become apparent. The downloadable spreadsheets that you get from your Officer Career page are very useful for keeping track but don't record the actual rank at time of the battle.
1. It is necessary to win all the official scenarios that were needed for the Lt-Col promotion as both Axis and Allies PLUS the following Med ones "Gallabat and Metemma", "Toulon" and "Tunisia", these are marked ** below, I have also included the full list for reference.
2. Play against 25 different cadets and at least 10 to get promoted against you. Probably best to play them as the underdog in the really difficult scenarios (e.g.as Axis on Arnhem Bridge) that way if they win they get their promotion and if you win then you have got one of the more difficult required wins. This means you don't have to go out to LET them win and they also learn from the experience.
3. Play against all ranks on all fronts as both factions (I set out to beat all ranks and achieved it but now I don't think this is necessary). I found that the Captain rank was the most difficult to find as they are a rare breed and tend to get to Major relatively quickly.
4. After all that, IF you haven't already reached this by the time you meet the above then you need to have played at least 250 multi-player games, win or lose (not sure if SFTF count although previous posts indicate they do).

I repeat this is ALL after being promoted to Lt-Col.

Hmmm...I've received 8 victories as a Axis and 8 as Allies as well as won as Axis at Arnhem...since then I've won a match and I haven't received my "Captain" badge.

Am I doing something wrong???...I've already played 50+ games...I feel like I should have it by now.

Looking at your career I do not see the win at Arnhem.

Did you win against a live opponent? Wins against the bot do not count.

So I would suggest you win Arnhem as Axis or first landing (Omaha) as Allies to clinch your promotion.

Good luck!

I got it...thanks, geez that was hard. Had to play a newbie to win at Arnhem...bridge of death...near impossible to win with experienced players, gotta have super cards and smart decisions.

20 wins seems easy for Major
80 wins in all the theaters doesn't seem bad either...just long.

Colonel and Brig Gen. are a whole different animal- those look tough.

Q,

No worries, of all the BG's that made it to that rank, I probably had the least clue of all as to what was needed and still somehow managed to make it to that RANK!!

Don't think I much looked at the thread as to what was required until I was a FULL BIRD and even then, just played and eventually BG came my way....so it can be done either way, by reading the reqs or as in my case, just played and they took pity on my and gave my next rank of BG!! Laughing
