I have played every map on both sides (except Spring & knightsbridge, the last 2 added).

I played more than 225 games.

I played (and won) at least 2 majors (or better) with each side on all 4 theaters, on at least 2 different maps on each front SINCE I got promoted to major.

Still not Lt colonel.


This might help.
If you subtract your wins of the following scenarios do you still have 10 wins both ways in those theaters?:

For people who want to know These are the "not counted" (I am still hoping otherwise) scenarios:
(Western: Operation Spring)
Eastern: Warsaw and Rhez
Mediterranian: Gallabat&Metemma, Montélimar, Toulon, Tunisia, (and the late Knightsbridge)
Pacific: none known to me.

If not, score those missing wins in the "approved" scenarios. (I.e. not the ones mentioned here.)

Let us know how you fare, fellow Major.
And succes!

I

Play other majors (looking forward to seeing you on the battlefield Mad )

Try to check if you have played (or simply play again) against all available ranks (and possibly win)




Fresh Intelligence Report

In total I have played 63 games against other majors

Won 31 times total

11 in West across 5 scenarios

5 in Pacific across 4

9 in Med across 6

6 in East Across 4


Since becoming Major:
O Cdt 1/2 all West
2lt 9/19 all theatres
1lt 25/39 all theatres
cpt 7/12 all theatres
maj 22/43 all theatres
Lt Col 1/7 No West or Pacific
Col 2/2 All West


Now, it cannot be a requirement to play Lt Col or Col; because otherwise the first person would never have made it. It might be a requirement to play all ranks that someone currently has (but in that case if there was only 1 in a given rank and they went AWOL we would all find it impossible to promote)

I cannot think that the idea is to get Cadets to play Eastern or Pacific while they are still learning the basic game

Van Voort, while maybe the rank has something to do with it, I might suggest you go win once in Arracourt and Pont du Hoc. You'ce only played once and didn't win either from either side. Maybe DOW is looking for at least one win in every "original" scenario.

Just a shot in the dark.

And if that shot in the dark works for Van Voort, that would mean Silenttimo that you need at least one win in Vassieux and Sugar Loaf. From either side.

Good luck all.

SUCCESS!!!

I've made it to Lt Colonel on winning my 80th battle across all four theatres (10 per side per theatre).

I made sure I succeeded on at least FIVE different scenarios on each front, and had a healthy mix of opponents from Cadet to Colonel, (including Majors).



Funny enough you made Lt. Colonel on the same # win as me: 157. A couple others made it on 137.

Re:[spoiler alert] Promotion requirements cadet through to Lt Colonel Sat, 08 October 2011 13:13
Hello fellow Majors humble saluters of my promoted self

I have been promoted to Lt Colonel now. So here's my intelligence report:

> I have NOTplayed all the scenarios: Sugar loaf and half moon are unplayed by me tot his date. (Also Rzhev and Tunisia but they aren't counted)
> I have played all scenarios except Sugar loaf and half moon, Rzhev and Tunisia. But do not have a 5 spread of victories in all fronts these are the missing 5 spreaders:
Eastern Axis wins: 4 different fronts
Eastern Allies wins: 4 different fronts
Pacific Axis wins: 4 different fronts
> I have NOT played all ranks on all fronts. I am missing only cadets though. But as mentioned somewhere before, it would be strange to invite cadets all over the fronts so it is nice to know this is indeed not neccessary.


My promotion occured on the 10th victory as a Major in the mediterranean on the allied side. (Having previously "victored" 10 times as a Major on the other fronts and sides.)
(Not counting: Operation Spring, Warsaw, Rhzev, Toulon, Montélimar, Tunisia, Gallabat&Metemma)
So I am thinking one of the requiremensts goes like this: win 10 victories on each side of each front after being promoted to Major

If you "numbercrunch" some of the older players around the rule of after major does not compute. They have been promoted with less then 10 wins in some fronts/sides on occasion. I can only speculate that either there was a bug or the promotion rules were " more relaxed" in those days. Speculations and research are welcome.

There must still be something else or otherwise people would not have been promoted after a loss, so we are still gathering intelligence.

My rule, of after Major, would also explain why Silenttimo, van Voort and --JP have not been promoted yet.
Let me shed my Lt Colonel wisdom on you lowly Majors and commandants (Stand up straight if you talk to me Major and never salute me in that sloppy way again, or I'll make you regret it. Very Happy )


My humble self did win over opponents since becoming a Major as follows
(Not counting the aforementioned scenarios):

Western
Allies: 14
Axis: 12

Eastern
Allies: 11
Axis: 13

Mediterranean
Allies: 10 (I found it hard to win as allies sometimes)
Axis: 24 (But of course did play the rematch)

Pacific
Allies: 13
Axis: 11


For the three aforementioned majors and commandants this breaks down as follows:
I hope you don't mind me investigating your careers. If you do, get promoted and we can have a gentlemanly discussion about it in the officers mess. (Bare knuckles prefered. Mad Very Happy )

Silenttimo
Western
Allies: 13
Axis: 13

Eastern
Allies: 10

Jeronimon,

I appreciate your research. I had to try to see if the premise worked.

I added 5 wins as Axis in the West - no dice. C'est la guerre...

Back to the drawing board...

I do not believe the accumulation of ribbons presently has anything directly to do with an improvement in rank. Granted, you may not make it to captain without the ARNHEM or OMAHA BEACH ribbons, but this of course seems to be obvious.
However, you may have a viable argument for the General Promotion. Maybe it is necessary to achieve a certain number of Ribbons before moving onto GENERAL.

Studying your career you got promoted to Major before you got your 20th ribbon. But exactly on the 20th victory after becoming Captain. (Although in your records I can't see the Captain promotion but since you had 8 victories both sides long before you had Arnhem I started from there.)

I was NOT one of the early ones promoted, and did NOT win 10 each side each front after Major (10 everywhere but 9 on mediterranean).

It was, though, the last victory needed to achieve 10 wins each side each front overall.

I agree there's more to it. Tricky DoW

ok.. made it.. FINALLY!

Looks like the requirements for LTC are:

minimum 10 victories, each side, each front.

a minimum of victories on 5 maps, each side.

minimum of 6 victories against majors, each front (regardless of side) _after_ making major

and.. a minimum of 150 victories.

So...Podpolkovnik after 216 games!

Congrats, I am beginning to think I am not too far to join you...

--JP écrit

Looks like the requirements for LTC are:

minimum 10 victories, each side, each front.

After studying several early and late Lt Colonel carriers, I feel that the needs are slightly different : you need 80 victories, 40 on each side, BUT at least 10 on Pacific AND 10 on Eastern AFTER being promoted to major.

Some promoted didn't have 10 each side/each front (IIRC, Nodoyuna said he had only 9 on mediterranean front, and that is what I saw).

My believe is that when DoW "opened" access to Lt Colonel rank (end of april), they had just opened access to eastern & pacific maps, and they didn't want "hard core gamers" or HCG (see who I mean ? Very Happy ) to be promoted right away.
So those HCG had to play on new maps to get a promotion.
It is not pure chance that both Gheintze and Phread were both promoted Lt Colonel the 30th of april after having won either on pacific or eastern front.

--JP écrit

a minimum of victories on 5 maps, each side.

Nope, see Turboheizer career (4 maps on Pacific, both sides), and I know 1-2 other I studied didn't have 5 different maps either on eastern, or on pacific front.
However, 5 different maps may be needed for western and med' fronts. (still guessing)

--JP écrit

minimum of 6 victories against majors, each front (regardless of side) _after_ making major


--JP écrit

and.. a minimum of 150 victories.

I am not sure there is a minimum of victories. Maybe a minimum of games.
My guess is :
- at least 80 victories since beginning your career ;
- 10 of those must be obtained on pacific AND east fronts after being promoted to major ;
- maybe (maybe ?) x victories overall, or y victories after being promoted to major, or even z games played since the beginning.


Most of my thoughts are pure guesses.

I'll see if I am right (I have my 10 victories on each side, each theater, but NOT 10 on each side for Pacific & Med' since I was promoted to major : I am beginning with my last victory to be obtained on Pacific, and I'll see what I get).

silenttimo,

I can't disagree with any of your statements. I was only trying to convey my own 'stats' upon reaching podpolkovnik.

I hadn't heard a minimum number of wins as a requirement, but thought it worth mentioning as my 'promotion' occured on number 150.

Sorry, didn't want to seem rude.

IMHO, after all I have read, there is something with pacific and eastern front.

These are the missing 5 spreaders:

Eastern Allies wins: 4 different fronts
Pacific Axis wins: 4 different fronts


And also :

Got 125 victories on my overall records, 227 games played (not counting solo games).


Still, there is something odd, and trying to be promoted with "logical needs" is an unsolved enigma !


EDIT : still, I congratulate you. And after only 216 games, you seem to be the "fastest" Lt Colonel...

It's not easy to figure it out.. even those who 'made it', aren't sure of what the requirements are.

Maybe there are multiple criteria and you only have to meet some, not all, of them?

@Silenttimo
I think your idea about about needing 10 victories on the "new" fronts is interesting. Keep at it: your promotion can't be far of. And your intelligence will undoubtedly be helpful.
I did not have time to numbercrunch this week, but I will look into it next week. We will crack this code gentleman! Mad


It would also explain that the rules of promotion weren't "more relaxed" in the old days.
Maybe that will help in me not getting Colonel Stevens upset.
Because getting the men upstairs upset can't be helpful for your promotion. Very Happy



@DOW
if Silenttimo is right (and knowing that some scenarios do not count toward some promotions): Having to keep track of when scenarios were added to know how to get promoted will become increasingly tedious when time passes by and more of this information will be lost in "the mists time".

Not too far but still, no promotion after winning another game in the Pacific !!

So far :

ALLIES :
- East : 13 wins (10 after becoming major) / maps not played (MNP), none / maps not won (MNW) : Klin, Rhzev, Warsaw / wins vs majors and above since becoming a major myself (WVM) : 4 on 4 different maps ;
- Med : 19 wins (9 after becoming major, 7 on "official" maps) / MNP none / MPW : knightsbridge / WVM : 6 on 5 different maps (4 on 3 different "official" maps) ;
- Pacific : 15 wins (12 after becoming major) / MNP none / MNW none / WVM : 7 on 4 different maps ;
- West : 30 wins (18 after becoming major, 17 on "official" maps) / MNP none / MNW : St Vith, Vassieux, twin villages / WVM : 6 on 6 different maps (5 on 5 "official" maps) ;


AXIS :
- East : 24 wins (15 after becoming major) / MNP none / MNW : Warsaw / WVM : 5 on 3 different maps ;
- Med : 15 wins (9 after becoming major, 8 on "official" maps) / MNP : knightsbridge / MNW : knightsbridge, Toulon, Montélimar / WVM : 5 on 3 different maps ;
- Pacific : 15 wins (10 after becoming major) / MNP : none / MNW : half-moon & sugar loaf / WVM : 6 on 4 different maps ;
- West : 25 wins (16 after becoming major, 15 on "official" maps) / MNP none / MNW : none / WVM : 6 on 6 different maps (5 on 5 "official" maps) ;

That's 156 victories overall (99 since becoming a major), 143 on "official" maps (94 since becoming a major).

I won all official maps with allies in the Pacific and in the desert, and in the west, the east and the desert with axis.

Phew, I guess I am not too far, but I hoped my last victory in the Pacific would get me the promotion !

Judging by your signature you have received your promotion.
Often you are promoted after the next battle following your qualification.

Congratulations - we look forward to seeing you in the Colonel's club.

As others have written, with the influx of cadets there are plenty of games to play (and win).

Thanks, I have to check exactly, but I think I only had 9 wins with allies in the sands AFTER my promo as a major.
(I had 10 or more wins AFTER promo on all other front, both sides)

My guess is that Tunisia and/or Gallabat do count.

(however, according to my results everytime I meet Buidheo, I am easily beaten...)

Which map/scenario is considered "First Landing" for the purposes of the Captain promotion? I don't see one with that actual name and would like to try to get my promo soon.

Thanks,

You should be able to filter for the First Landing scenarios. Up above the scenario list, look for the filters and click on the far right one. Choose First Landings and make sure you've played (and won) them all. Cool

You need to win either "1st wave (Omaha)" ith allies, or "Arnhem bridge" with axis.

That's the only 2 ways to become a captain.

becoming a major afterward is very easy (20 wins after becoming a captain).

Se you soon...

I just made Lt. Col. -- it was on my next battle (won) against a 1st Lieut. after beating 26 Majors (maybe 25?) as a Major myself. Note that this was NOT Majors and above but Majors only (peers). Also obtained these in each theatre, each side.

What I did and did not have:
I did NOT have 10 wins in each of the theatres as each side (May 2011), having only 9 in three of them (so was I suprised on the promotion). I attained the promotion after playing 229 total games (from cadet on) so I think the 225 game requirement (win or lose) sounds likely.

Another requirement might be a certain level of rating - just guessing on that one.

Here's what you need (I think) to make Lt. Col.:
Play 225 total games (any scenarios, from cadet onwards).
After obtaining Major rank, win games against 25 Majors (not Major and above) and, to be sure, obtain victories against Majors on each side in each theatre.
