Promotion from Major to Lt Colonel: info link and Excel resource Sun, 16 February 2014 17:31
M'44 Comrades,
I just got my promotion to Lt Colonel and wanted to share the best link I was directed to for information along with a very rough excel spreadsheet I used to track my progress in qualifying scenarios.

Please feel free to ask here or private message me (Iron Gut Heath) if you have any questions or find better resources or info.

I'm sure there are some veteran players out there that have some amazing resources of your own, so feel free to link up our aspiring comrades to them.

Battle on. Have fun.

Ypa!

Thanks for this Iron Gut. The spreadsheet is actually very useful to me as I buck for colonel in that it effectively shows which scenarios are official and not. If anyone needs advice on how to use the data download to see which scenarios they need let me know and I can provide either a macro or just an effective sort order for those Excel impaired. Cool

Congratulations on your promotion by the way!

Tyler

Tyler,
You are welcome. I basically gutted my Major to Lt Col one and started over. But, note I have found out from reading some of the forums that at least one of the scenarios that didn't qualify for the LT Col promotion are required in the win both sides for Colonel. I'm not fully done figuring out what those are, but I'll post my new one for colonel for you to use if you want. I added a log for game count (250) and a place to track Expert games (those seem to count toward the total) and a place to tally ranks I've played against since at least 25 cadet games seems to matter. I also chat with ranks from cadet to Lt-Col to see if they want info about promotions because many of them just haven't found the info or don't know it's out there. Then I record if they wanted it and if I directed them toward it so I don't have the same conversation with the same person days or weeks later...

My spreadsheet is the apex of my Excel skills, so I'd be really interested in your macro/sort order.

thanks for offering. I'll post the promo to Colonel sheet in just a few minutes.

Battle on and have fun.

Yes, IGH, congrats on your promotion!!

I hate to say it, but good thing I never followed any specific format as to promotion, actually, none at all!!

I just played and promotions came out of the blue, had no clue as to why, just played and promotions happened up to my current rank of BG!!

Not sure I would have the patience to go about it by a specific list, but for those looking to move up, thanks for your work with the spreadsheet and good luck to you as well Tyler.

Tyler,
Only moments of organization, more often practicality, like how fun I'll really have if I know my ingots spent are going toward the goal of promotion. But I'll still spend them on just about anyone who invites me to any scenario. And if others are interested reducing their time as they work toward the next rank, I'm happy to get a little organized to help them out.

Play on.
