I Know I might be sounding stupid , but how do I get the info regarding victories since becoming a Major?
Cool Cool Cool


Go to your officer career page on the website. In the top right corner of your war diary you will find an Excel spreadsheet. You can download that. Check the date on which you were promoted to Major and count (analyse) from that date.

You can see and downloard your battle results from your officer career webpage.

You need to browse your career pages to find out when you were promoted to major.

There is an icon on the right side of the page for downloading a spreadsheet of your results.

You want to be on the "Multi" tab and select (one of)
Last 15 days | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 and click the icon to initiate a download.

You can combine your results in a spreadsheet and create formulae to analysis your results.

I have created formulae for myself that breakdown my results giving games played/won overall, as Axis, as Allies, by theatre and individual standard scenarios. It isn't hard. PM me with an email address and I can send you a copy for you to paste your own results into.

Once you get to Lt Col though you have to track the cadets you have payed, and that is not reported in the file so you have to add a column and do so manually.

This is job that is fairly easy if you do it regularly, if you leave it a while it's time consuming

Win more scenarios up to like 240. Then only play and win expert scenarios.
Some of us got promoted before reaching 250, and the difference could be about the number of wins those players had on expert. Se if you get promoted after reaching 250 total.
You might have to play one more non-expert game afterwards, since it seems you can only get promoted at the end of a non-expert scenario.


That's a possiblity, my next moves are likely to be though:


Get to 200 games as Lt Col on the maps that count (not the newer + newest ones)

Get to 225 games on all maps

Get to to 225 on the maps that count

Pick up the wins on the maps that do not count for Major

Hi All, An update in my pursuit to the "comfy chairs" in the officers mess, I have now achieved at least 10 victories as allies and axis on all fronts, and done this in 5 different maps in each of the zones , ( i have discounted the ones listed earlier), I am still looking for my promotion the only thing i can think stopping me is i have only recorded 66 wins since becoming a major and have not played , let alone won a expert scenario...i have upgraded today and spent some hard-earned pennies on getting the captain pack which enables me the expert mode....any ideas ?????
Should i go on expert maps and try a victory???

Many thanks in advance for your responses...

AFAIK wins in "Expert" scenarios isn't required for promotion to Lt. Colonel.

I thought someone had posted that you needed 80 wins as Major,
10 from each side in each theatre (see the posts at the top of this discussion) 10x2x4.

Expert scenarios are not needed for LT Col (neither is the spread over 5 scenarios). But how can you have won 10 scenarios from each side on each theater and still had only 66 wins??? 4 theaters times 2 sides times 10 wins is 80.

You cannot count victories from before promoting to Major. So do the math from that promotion.

Good luck and keep us informed.

Thanks Col.Phread, I have now taken my place in the farthest corner of the colonel's club ( assigned for half or lefties), near the drafty gap under the door nowhere near the nice roaring open fire with marshmallows roasting....

My Stats if I have read them right (please correct if you want )....are as follows.

since being promoted to Major Supers.

west allied wins 19
west axis wins 12
east allied wins 10 (promoted with a ponyri win)
east axis win only 7 (if i include warsaw and rhez) 10.
pac allied win 11
pac axis win 15
med allied wins 12
med axis win 10


Don't know about anyone else but i thought the likes of rhez and warsaw was not included in the tally ?


Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Anyway onwards and upwards to some place nearer the fire ...and the marshmallows.... Cool

Many Thanks

Hi All, After finally gaining my promotion to Lt.Colonel, I have had time to study my statistics properly and have come to the following conclusion ( also using some imparted information from other parties... Razz Razz ).

My findings are as follows,
1.) to reach the rank of Lt.col from major you either need a) as mentioned before 10 wins either side each front making 80 wins ( thanks Jeronimon) , or,b) I suspect a total of 100 wins all theatres because that is the only thing I can make my stats add up to. I was 2 wins short in the Eastern theatre .I don't know about beating certain ranks but my break down is as follows.
All victories obtained since reaching the rank of Major.

1. cadets 9 wins
2. 2nd lt 15 wins
3. 1st lt 25 wins
4. capt 6 wins
5. majors 25 wins
6. lt.col 16 wins
7 col 4 wins.

One final thing i got promoted beating a 1st lt.
Well them are my findings , hope they are of use too someone..... Cool Cool Cool

Laters , Lt. Col Supers

225 games as Lt Col

52 games against 31 cadets

Ignoring the scenarios that do not count for Major

If include those, it is 230, but I have not won all from both sides (deliberatly)

If games on the latest official scenarios count, it is 239


Going to get another 25 on the Original Official list and report back

Lieutenant-colonel van Voort - which scenarios did you not win from both sides?

The "newer" scenarios?

All the battles that count for Major are Y on my sheet and included in the 225 total.


The 4 Western Ones that have just been released are almost certainly not counting for Col (unless they have changed the requirements) they are an N in my list:
Utah
Gold
Carentan
Goodwood


The ones I am trying to find out if they are necessary for Col are those not needed for Major:
Warsaw
Spring
Ryzev
Toulon
Tunisia
Montelimar
Gallabet
Knightsbridge

Lt Col Van Voort we commend your spirit and hope you reach 250 soon, and get promoted.
If not, proceed as planned and get those "missing" scenarios won.

Your intelligence will be eagerly waited for.

Well, thanks to all the wonderful advice in this thread I think I know how to achieve my promotion to Lt. Colonel. I looked through my career since my promotion to Major (Thanks to the brilliant DoW staff who came up with that wonderful spreadsheet) and it looks like I have 26 wins to go. I also need a few aditional maps to go in most theaters so that I've won five different maps in each theater.

It looks like I have a little bit of a slog ahead, but not near as long as whats comming when I go for Colonel (thank goodness I bought a large pack of ingots Very Happy). I've been unable to play online for several months, but I'm ready to get that shiny new stud on my collar, and a significant pay raise. Laughing

See you on the battlefield. Smile

Good news, you do not need the "five" spread in each theater. As stated before I managed to get promoted without that spread.

Re:[spoiler alert] Promotion requirements cadet through to Lt Colonel Tue, 07 February 2012 15:50
This just in:

239 games on the Maps that count for Lt Col

+ 33 (272) on those that do not

+ 9 (281) on the 4 Western ones released with the Brig promotion


Played 52 battles against 31 different cadets.

The important bit:

It would appear that the maps that do not count for Lt Col do count for Col, as I was promoted after winning Gallebat


I have some other stat musings but I will do those in a seperate thread

There seems to be inconsistency in getting promoted. I had to win every game as the Allies and Axis before reaching the rank of Colonel. I wish that DOW would set up a a definite guideline on this matter.

In my opinion there is no inconsistency as you have to win every game as Allies and Axis before you reach the rank of Colonel.

Or could it be they didn't notice my gesture and just thought they were better? Rolling Eyes

Wait, 'every' game?? I thought there were five scenarios that didn't count ...

(Goodwood, Knightsbridge, Gold Beach, Utah, and Carenten Causeway?)

Ive had wins from each side in 44 of the standard scenarios ... but not all of the extra scenarios listed above, as I understood they didn't count towards the requirement...


Can anyone confirm ? Do I need victories in these scenarios also?

Cheers

I can't comment too much on this, but I plan to win every battle just for the fun of it...and hope that I trigger the promotion along the way! Smile There's no point in avoiding these, in my mind, even if they don't count toward the promotion. Razz

Going back through my records, along with all the required wins, I've discovered I already have wins on both sides for Knightsbridge and Gold already, plus wins for Allies in Utah and Carenten, (although nothing for Goodwood at all), so I'm going to make up the wins in the three scenarios i need to claim the complete set, seeing as I need to rack up 250 games in total!

Cannot comment on Knightsbridge as I did win it

However I did not win:

Utah
Gold


From both sides so I can confirm that these are NOT necessary

By extension then

Carentan
Goodwood


Are probably not needed either

Proof of the not-counting-ness of Knightsbridge & Spring : more than half of the 60+ Colonels were promoted when those two were not yet available, and it seems compelling that the requirements for promotion do not evolve Smile

Well, it happened. Finally, after a long slog I've been promoted to Lt. Colonel (or Oberstleutnant). It took longer then expected, due to some forced leave from the fronts (no internet access due to vacation), but I have moved up the ranks. Now the longer slog to Colonel...(sigh). I'll see you on the battlefields of France, Germany, Russia, tiny Pacific islands, Africa, or were ever the tide of war leads.



P.S. for the purposes of this thread, I achieved by promotion after my 10th win from each side in each front (80 victories total). I also can agree that you don't need those wins in at least 4 differnt battles in each side (I only had 3 in my allied statistics for the Eastern front). My thanks to all who have posted on this thread and given me the information I needed to achieve my goal. The best of luck to you all.
