13 games in a row - with lucky dice and cards Sun, 10 July 2011 22:29
Just wanting to show off a bit: I just won my 13th game in a row ... and that while mostly, I play rematch after the first game. And I don't target cadets all the time. I hope this streak keeps going.

Although it certainly is not skill - I had lost quite some games before the streak. Also, alot of the wins came down to a last figure taken out by a lucky die roll, drawing the needed card just at the right time (a behind enemy lines to take out a last withdrawn unit and exiting the board for a last medal, or winning a game with my single infantry being attacked by his single infantry, but I had just drawn ambush ...) By the way: why isn't there a medal for winning a game on ambush?

Anyone else got something to show off about ... I'd like to read it in this thread.

i lost six in a row the other day....some of them i would have won if i had scored just one more hit on my last play.

dice is dice. cards are cards.

all streaks must come to an end...i just won four in a row, helps make up for my loss...

may your winning streak continue...but gee, the pressure, the pressure on you to keep winning! must be how jeter feels...

the pressure is okay. I just wanted to go over my stats, to see on which front I need more victories for ranking to lieurenant colonel, when I discovered the streak ... wasn't even aware up until then.

Nygaard ended the streak, after he allowed me a 14th win.
It was fun to loose from him, and to learn from him.

And now the pressure is of my shoulders Smile

Here is the list by the way: (x for axis, a for allies)
Saverne Gap x
Escape via the coastal road x
Escape via the coastal road a
Flanking maneuver at bir hakeim x
the meat grinder x
the meat grinder a
guam landings a
Rzhev x
Breakout to Lisyanka a
Breakout to Lisyanka x
the meat grinder x
the meat grinder x
the meat grinder a
red barricades factory a
And then a loss on the red barricades factory.

Aha, you couldn't allow me to get alongside your 15 games streak, so you had to stop me at 14 Twisted Evil

Re:13 games in a row - with lucky dice and cards Mon, 11 July 2011 05:38
I have a streak of 9 going right now:

Arnhem Bridge (Allies 5-3; 1st Lieutenant)
Dug in at Sid Omar (Allies 6-3; Major)
Breakout to Lisyanka (Allies 7-2; Cadet)
Breakout at Klin (Axis 6-2; 1st Lieutenant)
Breakout to Lisyanka (Allies 7-5; 2nd Lieutenant)
Suomussalmi (Axis 6-3; 1st Lieutenant)
Into the Cauldron (Allies 6-4; Major)
Into the Cauldron (Axis 6-4; Major)
The Meat Grinder (Axis 7-2; 2nd Lieutenant)

A couple of this were easy wins(Arnhem and Meat Grinder). If memory serves, 6 of the other 7 battles each side has good chances to win.

Good cards, good dice and competent play equals wins.

Well I'm just not in the same league as you gentlepersons.

My best winning sequence is 11 battles and my worst losing sequence is 9 matches.

I had 10 in a row from 1 July to 6 July, and was feeling pretty good about myself. But now I find myself in a string where I have underperformed in 6 out of my last 8 games, gaining only one medal on at least 3 occasions. Oof. I don't think my skill score can get any lower. Confused

Keep rolling!

I wish to complain! I was one (2) of those 13. Quit2 cheated!!!!!
He used tactics, cards and dice!

How can anyone survive against that?

I used to be good...........

Then came the slump. Why don't you take the advice of your username!


Seriously - congrats - we WILL meet again!

How about 26 straight wins? No, not me, but I was just checking the rating chart and the current top player as of this posting time is someone named Player721272 who got there having won 26 in a row.

Sure, there's not a lot of captains or majors or above in his competition list, but still getting the cards and dice to allow such a streak is pretty impressive.

There isn't alot of variety in the 26 either, and no rematches in the list.

LOL. I didn't check that part out. He's definitely the king of Warsaw, isn't he? Or would that be the Chancellor? Mostly Axis in the Battle of Warsaw and never a rematch against a series of lieutenants (or soldiers who are now LTs).

Yet another dagger in the usefulness of the Ratings system.

My historical best is 16 from 7/5-7/9. I was playing mostly cadets at the time. My first play of the Battle of Warsaw did me in, had I know I had such a streak might have tried nursing it a bit.

Player721272's sequence has been broken. After 27 wins he has been defeated.

Congratulations to Player721272 for an impressive sequence of victories.

Congratulations (?) to the player who has won 49 battles in a row.
48 victories playing only one side in a battle, almost all of the 49 playing the favoured side in the battle.

Well done. Hope you enjoyed the battles.

Are you now the expert at playing Pegasus Bridge as the Allied Player?

While this is a long record on easy scenarios, I don't know if we need to slam him on the forums. Razz

To me, this is similar to players who might use friends to help them earn promotions or achievements...while the rest of us wouldn't find that rewarding or fun, some people might and it doesn't hurt the rest of us (even if we find it mildly annoying).

Maybe this player simply likes the battle, or wants to increase his ranking, or likes being successful. In the end though, his behavior doesn't change the fun that I have with the game and will continue to have. Cool

Wonderfully put, rasmussen81. Very wise words.
