Welcome, Brigadier General.

So, put up your feet, grab a drink (we've got quite a collection by now) and let us know how you made it out of the common ranks Smile

My victory record is a bit hazy, but some data is here.

Original scenarios published - one, but cannot be accessed (strange bug, reported to DoW)

Winning all scenarios from both sides in standard mode since Colonel - fail, still about 18 to go

Number of Expert matches since Colonel - 156
of which victorious - 108 (69%)

Number of Expert matches since Colonel against humans - 90
of which victorious - 58 (65%)

Welcome General Morgiliath.


Dear sir,


Congrats on your promotion and a warm welcome to this bar.

To lighten up this happy occasion, I ordered Ten Tenors, whom are going slightly mad in a Bohemian Rhapsody.

Enjoy the beers or one of the other drinks, and the excellent service of Colonel Jeronimon, whom provided us with the stage where the band can perform.

Welcome again,

Gratuliere her Generalmajor Morgiliath!



And with the tenth Brigadier present I can announce that we have a fully equipped kitchen, and more importantly a fully staffed kitchen. Which means that since we are here 24/7 they will staff the kitchen 24/7.

It will be like a spanish bar/café: when they are open (24/7) you can order food. Cool
So no matter what the hour, you can order: Albondigas, Curry, Bratwurst, Hamburger, Steak Frites, Bitterballen, haricots verts, vietnamese egg rolls, sushi, tortilla chips, spaghetti, Durum, Braai, Foe Yong Hai, etc etc.

The head chef says whatever you order he will try to make if it's not on the menu. But he also stated that he would not stock up on russian food. Going on his experience that almost everybody will avoid russian snacks if there is anything else edible about.
So state your preferences and he will put (most of) it on the menu.

The special this week is a 8 course australian meal:










7 beers and a pizza! Very Happy

Congratulations Generals 1-10. That star you're wearing is quite an accomplishment.

The chef shouldn't discount all russian food - I am partial to caviar (and that doesn't take much to prepare). Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

I'd be interested to see what is on the australian menu.

You can't have pavlova on the australian menu because, of course, it was invented in New Zealand.
You can have convict food on an australian menu. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Re:Brigadier Bar Mon, 27 February 2012 02:03
I'm new to this Expert Mode thing in progress Razz
So, I have a few questions to all of you top-ranked senior officers: does the SFTF tab works just like the Official Scenarios? I mean, do I get to click the tab, select a map, click Play and wait for an opponent? In that case, will any player (at least a player with access to the Expert Mode) see the available game in the Open Games counter in the lobby? Will he see the game in bold when he clicks the SFTF tab? Do you guys set your games this way or some other way?

Thanks for your patience!...

Yes, clorofila, it works the same. But it's better to invite somebody for a game, because people usually aren't browsing through the Expert scenarios.

Sorry sir, did not see you there. Congratz on the recent promotion. Brigadier helcat wil probably be in to show you the ropes around here otherwise speak to one of the other Brigadiers they will know.

Can I get you a drink, I see you are fresh of Juno Beach. So have a seat near the warm and cosy fire. Anything to eat? Any musical preferences?

How was your journey here?

Yes, thank you. Happy to be here, in such excellent company. When I saw the eight course Australian dinner through the window, I knew this was the place to be. So that'll do nicely after a tough slog to get here.

Of course, of course. Besides, I'm the one you've got to worry about. Very Happy

To answer another question, my journey here was full of challenges and tough opponents. I was surprised when the promotion came through after a dismal showing on Juno Beach, but the courier must have been delayed.

*Knock Knock*

Hello? Anybody in here?

I just finished getting thoroughly clobbered by JRyan and, quite frankly, his parrot was starting to annoy me. So I went to the desert and took out my frustrations on a poor 2nd Lieutenant at Knightsbridge.

To my surprise, they awarded me my first star!

Hope there's still something to drink at the bar. The desert is hot this time of year and I've built up a powerful thirst!

I'll just sit down in this nice chair for a spell, prop my feet up and listen to some music. Oh, and batsman? I like my martinis well chilled....

Glad to (finally) be here. Jim

Congratulations, James! I draw encouragement from the fact that you are by far the General with the lowest number of games altogether, so maybe the way is not so far as I initially feared.

I have posted alot of SFTF scenarios, and played and won alot of them. (more than certain brigadiers)
But still no promotion.

So far I have 2 theories which might explain this:
- You need a certain number of SFTF played and/or won, possibly with a certain spread, AND you need a certain number of wins since becoming a colonel on SFTF and Standard combined. (I have been playing a bit less since becoming a colonel, until they upgraded for the general rank)
OR
- You need a certain number of SFTF wins/played, excluding the wins on your own scenarios. This might include games from before becoming a colonel (otherwise Nygaard might be too low at the moment of promotion). I have been playing my own scenarios alot.

(underlines mine)

Analysts, anything to this?

I gave up on the analysis after the first 8 promotions to Brigadier as I could see no pattern.

Some of us seemed to need 100 SFTF wins as Colonel, others were promoted with much fewer. I had many standard scenario wins as Colonel that didn't seem to help (and won most scenarios from both sides as Colonel).

Our apologies that you had to introduce and announce yourself.

How many SFTF battles did you play/win on your journey from Colonel to Brigadier?

Re:Brigadier Bar Sat, 24 March 2012 07:10
Looks like he had 266 games, with a 166-100 record in Expert games as a Colonel.

As for multi-player regular games, depending on which game promoted him to Colonel, he had between 269 and 274 wins, and between 124 and 128 losses.

Interestingly, he was promoted after a streak of 13 consecutive wins. He had played and won 2 Expert games since his previous standard game. This rules out any possibility of the 100 Expert losses being the critical element.

Congratulations Brigadier Buidheo (has a nice ring to itbdon't you think?)

Of course you, and only you, would get promoted after 13 straight wins! I think DOW has a special set of promotion requirements just for you...

I don't need to tell my fellow Brigadier's this - esteemed and patient fellows all - but for the benefit of the random Colonel or two that peeks behind the canvas of this tent - General Buidheo's promotion proves you don't need to win every battle - or be in the top 100 - to get promoted. How so? Well consider that one's 'skill' rating is only calculated based on regular scenarios - not expert Scenarios From The Front ( SFTF). Now if there is anyone that excels in "official" battles it is General Buidheo. Now some may say he wears his opponents down and destroys their will to fight by taking what sometimes appears to be an astronomically long time to make a move - but pay them no mind. The point is that Brigadier Buidheo favors "official" scenarios but to get that first star one needs to play "expert" - and hence non- rated scenarios.

I suspect the newest member to our club would have been promoted long ago if that was his primary goal.

Tabou - still a seat at the bar although elbow room is starting to get a bit scarce...

One Speyside coming right up - and another right behind I'm sure! Well done.

Re:Brigadier Bar Sun, 25 March 2012 19:30
Hello,

I am proud to join Brigadier Bar as the only below-1000-games-Brigadier General Smile.

My way to the club was mostly restricted by time, as some time ago I guessed what is needed to get promoted (the 1st criterion is related to expert games [here I am 95% sure +/- one game]; the second one to games after promotion to colonel [90%, +/- 3 games]). And my games have proved I was right as I get promoted exactly when expected (or it was a lucky coincidence Smile).

So you do not need to have 1000 games or post your own scenario online

BTW Colonel Quit2 sir, according to my calculations you just need 2-4 games to get promoted (mostly expert games you have not played yet and preferably against human)

Congratulations to all other Generals who already sit here and we still look forward for more to come

Hello AIwan,

Congratualations on your promotion.
Thank you for checking this out for me. This might encourage me to play a bit more very soon.
Recently, memoir 44 has shifted a bit to the background for me: other occupations have taken more time. I still play occasionally, and read the forum almost every day, but I no longer feel compulsed to play every day. (It was a temporary addiction)
