Wow Dietich! I like it, especially the pond.

Mind if I take a dip?

Glad you like it, LD.
Go ahead, take a dive, feel yourself at home! Smile

The pond will be fine sir but for the pool here is a strict "no Duck" policy. Flying over it on your torpedo will be fine, but be careful not to hit the other officers. As I said there is a "no duck" policy. Very Happy

May I remind you fine officers that you still need to become experts on all fronts before you should even consider taking a dive in the pond or the pool. This resort is stricktly generals only ... unless you want to sign up for duty serving us.

But of course sir, another drink sir?

We just thought that since you never watched out the front window we could play around in the pond.
And if sir Lucky Duck flies over the pool he is not technically using it. Very Happy

Esteemed gentlemen,

I apologize for the antics of my pet duck. I have removed him from the premises and instructed him not to return until there is a star on his shoulder in place of a bird.

There'll be no fowl fouling the water in this club!

Pets... sheesh.

Thanks so very much for the warm welcome. This place is certainly not the easiest watering hole to find but it's been a fun trip. Not sure exactly how I got here just tried to load up on some expert wins and continued working through the standard games then luckily enough today while enjoying a match with Hester24 not only were the dice gods smiling on me to pull off a pair of wins but I noticed after the fact I was sporting some nice new epaulettes. After this quick refreshment at the bar I look forward to seeing you all on the battle field. Cheers! Razz Very Happy

Too much time in the bar for you Phread... you jumped from 24 to 35 pretty rapidly.

Congrats BG Kain as a member of a smaller and more exclusive club. Laughing

Indeed, my mistake, though I think it was being to long away from the bar that caused the error.

Re:Brigadier Bar Sat, 22 September 2012 16:14
I am wondering why it has been so long since a promotional opportunity has arisen. The DOW folks must do something to whet the whistle of so many Brigadiers. However, it may be that they have programmed a promotional opportunity to occur when there is a set number for this rank. So say maybe at 50 Brigadiers the next opportunity pops up. Anyway, time will tell.

HELCAT was the first on 17JAN12. I hope we don't have to wait unril next January to see some movement in this area.

Re:Brigadier Bar Sun, 23 September 2012 01:55
I had hoped - incorrectly as it turned out - that there would have been an online release to coincide with the release of the new equipment pack. Sad Sad Sad

It has taken too long for DoW to release a new version of M44 Online.
There are a number of bugs that should have been fixed and now new units and scenarios to include.

Perhaps we will get a new version to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the beta release to the public - though I won't hold my breath.

Re:Brigadier Bar Sun, 23 September 2012 07:38
I think most of the digital resources have been going to Ticket to Ride. With the new TTR pocket app having been released recently.

Looking back it seems to me that DoW is giving attention to TTR then M44 then TTR again. I am hoping now there will be an investment of time into M44 again.

But I could be wrong of course. Where my bug reports and e-mails earlier were met with prompt and correct response, my last bug report and subsequent mails about it have been met with absolute silence.


But: I am still enjoying the game immensely and working (I hope Smile ) towards promotion so I can visit the Brigadier bar as a guest as opposed to running the bar and kitchen. A round of golf would be nice also. Razz

Well, when we were playing at WBC Mr Borg told us the following:

2014 is the 70th anniversery of D-Day, and the 10th anniversery of M44, so expect big things then

Now I hope that that doesn't mean we have a year or more without anything at all for the online version, on the other hand I think that means we are far from forgotten about

Kains record:

SFTF

WESTERN 33 scenarios
63 games, 42 wins

As Axis, 24 wins over 21 scenarios

As allies, 18 wins over 16 scenarios

EASTERN 25 scenarios
47 games, 31 wins

Axis 13 on 13

Allies 18 on 17

PACIFIC 28 scenarios
48 games, 32 wins

Axis 16 on 15

Allies 16 on 16

MED 25 scenarios
51 games, 29 wins

Axis 11 on 10

Allies 18 on 14



That a lot of different scenarios...

120 in fact

Do we have a suspiciously round number?

33+25+28+25 is not 120 ... however, it is >= 25 per front.
Also a nice round number.

Brigadier Generals are Experts from all sides.

I have to say, guys; you've created quite the community with this club and it looks like you're having a lot of fun!

You're already at 10 pages (!) of comments for this thread...I think only the topic that rivals it would be all of the combined FAQ threads we've had over the years (I think we're on the third sticky thread for that one).

Keep up the good work, gentelmen! Even though I'm not in the club, I have enjoyed peaking in the window and listening to the jokes every so often. Very Happy

Lately that's been my humble opinion as well! Laughing Laughing And believe me...it's taking hours! Very Happy

Some day I'll manage to earn the extra perks you guys enjoy as Brigadiers, but the longer it takes me the nicer things get in here, so I'm content to admire from a far at this point.

Have fun, and see you around (maybe even on the battle field someday soon)! Cool

Re:Brigadier Bar Fri, 28 September 2012 03:57
Further report from Bletchley:

General Major Kain played an expert game 14/09/2012 05:08:02 at Nasan

Afterwards there is one that appears to be deleted, and he played another 2012-09-22 20:00:40

His promotion was 2012-09-21 20:35:16 at Wake Island

I belive that the triggering event for his promotion may have been the 2012-09-14 02:19:18 game at Relief of Tobruk, which was his 25 th Med SFTF game.


That his actual promotion took place 7 days later will be either:

1) There is a built in delay of a week
or
2) There is something needed in the Standard Scenario record

Re:Brigadier Bar Fri, 28 September 2012 04:28
Record as Col:

Pacific
75 games
45 wins

Won all 7 as both sides

Eastern
65/94

Won all 8 including Warsaw as both sides

Med
73/107

Won all 13 as both sides

Western
79/120

Won all 21 as both sides


However this was accomplished before the 14/9/12, so nothing was completed after Tobruk


I recall upthread it has been said that some have been promoted without winning, or even playing, the basic scenarios again

You can have your billiard table back soon I promise.



http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=24312&start=0#msg _num_25

As Colonel Helcat did not win all the new scenarios from both sides (he won one), nor did he win more than once from both sides.

He has more than 300 victories in each theatre.

Not sure where you are going with your discussion Colonel van Voort.

Colonels need SFTF wins for promotion. The number or ratio is uncertain - it seems to vary.

Promotion occurs after a playing (winning or losing) a standard battle once the requirements for promotion have been met.

Re:Brigadier Bar Fri, 28 September 2012 16:28
Phread Sir:

I don't believe the requirement will be random, it will be complex however.

I think part of the initial issue was that people were looking at SFTF play as Colonel whereas indications are that it is an LTD figure that matters.

I will be pulling the full history of each new brigadeer as they are promoted - with changes to scenarios and deletions there is I think little point in looking at pre-existing Brigadeer careers. We can only look at each new one as they arrive

I downloaded and analysed the SFTF and standard careers of the 1st eight Brigadiers. I could not find a pattern in games played or victories won that would explain the variability in promotion to Brigadier.

Of course I am not a statistician so I may have missed the answer.

Based on all the variables that I looked at over the summer, I suspect that there is some other factor that DOW is tracking, but that isn't publicly available. (Just as we had to play against 25 Cadets to make Colonel.) I don't know what that X factor is, but it would be something that doesn't take up a lot of bytes and is easy for them to calculate.

I'm going to keep plodding along.

If I am right above, 25 each theatre + 1 week we shall know soon.

If not, I can continue and look at the next person to be promoted.

I had at least 37 Expert wins on each front as a Colonel. See my July 3 post, on page 9 of this thread.

I have wondered about whether there might be a time delay disguising the promotion requirements (which would be very clever on their part), but when I analyzed several Brigadiers over the summer, I didn't find a common set of qualifications.

Re:Brigadier Bar Sat, 29 September 2012 16:33
I too thought that there might be a delay of sorts. I had a particular theory as to what was needed, and when I reached it, nothing happened. I was a bit befuddled at that point as how to proceed. I decided I would just try to get more games under my belt in different EXPERT theaters. To my complete surprise, I was actually playing regular Online scenarios when my promotion to Brig. Gen. came about. So I think there may be a delay of some sort built in.
