No promotion to Major Wed, 24 August 2016 02:04
I've not been promoted to Major. Confused
I have 21 victories as of right now. Examining multiple Majors' careers, I figured out that if a certain number of achievements is needed I have surpassed that.
The only thing that might be holding me up is not having played a fellow Captain. Though examining Captain Lord MacDonald's career, he has, while a captain, won against all ranks, including captain, and has way over 20 victories(70 some to be more specific).
I also looked at a bunch of Captains and there are a lot who have more then 20 victories but have not promoted. One thing I noticed was that all of them got their 20th victory middle of April or later. Now I forget when DOW announced that further development on M44 Online was stopped, but the last Majors had gotten promoted in the first few days of April and last Lieutenant-Colonels, Colonels, and Brigadier Generals were promoted earlier in 2016.
So a thought of mine is that further development was stopped early April and that no one can now promote to Major, Lieutenant-Colonel, Colonel, or Brigadier General. I hope that is not true. Mad
I would appreciate any thoughts people have on this.

Twisted Evil Hi, so glad you have joined the ranks of committed players. My opinion is that the workings of the game have not changed. No more development to the online game. But when that was posted the indication was we could continue playing as before. So, if you want the best thinking on promotion requirements, you can go to the following forum thread. But be warned this is not official; just the best thoughts of those who have been here ahead of us. And if you do not want the requirements laid out---do not read the thread!!! 'Nuff Said

Don

P.S. Hope things are still properly functional!!!

Hello ArchNME

I have already thoroughly checked out that entire thread and the only possible thing that I myself could be missing is needing to play a fellow captain. Though as I said in my first post, Lord MacDonald has played and won against every single rank including captain. He also has more then enough victories and achievements.
I also found out that the announcement, saying that further development was stopped, was made on April 3. The last major promoted on April 4 according to his career, but I positive that the date and time put on battles in the officer careers are the date and time in France when battles are done.

So thanks for trying to help out, but it has not gotten me any closer to Major. Sad

Hello red-Eyed Jack,

How many achievements have you got?
This might be of consequence.

Also, did you maybe track the ranks of your opponents since becoming a Captain?
If so did you play different ranks?


Trying to help you get that promo! Smile

I have 20 achievements which is more then several majors.

Since becoming Captain, I have played and won against every rank except captain which I haven't even played at all here since becoming captain.
Though I'm not sure if playing or winning against a captain would do it, because Lord MacDonald, who is still a captain, has played and won against every single rank, including captain. He also has 21 achievements, which is more then me.

I haven't thoroughly examined other captain's careers, but I know that there are a bunch of captains who have more then 20 victories.

Your problem may be related to the fact that certain scenarios weren't online when the promotion rule was established (and solved), so they might not count toward the quota. See the following thread for insight on this, or just keep having fun and trust that it will happen. Wink https://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?goto=278909

Winning against all ranks is not relevant. In the beginning, there were no other ranks.

The Achievements are not relevant.

No that's not it Sam, he won more than 20 " counting" scenarios.

So far I am baffled.

I don't have any insights into why you haven't been able to earn your promotion. I know that we aren't actively supporting Memoir '44 Digital any longer but all the current stuff should be working.

Have fun with the game and enjoy your battles! May the dice always fall in your favor!!

Yes Jeronimon, you are correct. I have more then 20 victories on scenarios that defiantly count.
Though I think that victories on any official scenario count, because wildJuan, who is a major, promoted after getting 20 wins, 16 of which were at Moyland Wood.

It would be nice if someone from DOW could at least figure out if something has screwed up being able to promote to Major and beyond.

Try winning the arnhem bridge achievement, and try winning more games on scenarios from the base game.

That said, rank is not important. Having fun is.

I'll see about possibly trying to win Arnhem Bridge as the Germans and getting more wins on scenarios from the base game.

Though I don't think that would do it, because looking at the recent majors, most of them haven't won both First Assault Wave as Allies, and Arnhem Bridge as Germans.

I'll still give it a try on the chance that it would work.

You're right though, just having fun is the most important thing. Smile

Hi Smile

The problem has been discussed on the french forum since may here : https://www.daysofwonder.com/fr/msg/?th=32506&start=0.
It seems, as you stated Red-Eyed Jack, there are no more promotions since march 30th beyond Captain.

DOW hasn't given any answer yet, though they had plenty of time. So, unfortunately, the hope that they will is thin...

If you want, try the Online Generals Challenge here https://www.daysofwonder.com/fr/msg/?th=32528&start=0 . It's an interesting and challenging substitute.

I hope you're enjoying the game anyway.

Have fun Very Happy

Thanks Droopy007

It's nice to know that other people have reached the same conclusion that I have.

It's a bummer though that I will be stuck as a captain. Sad

Though I'll defiantly look into that Online Generals Challenge.

Thanks also to everybody who tried to assist me in my struggle to try to become major.

Promotions are back!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

If anybody wants any proof. There's new posts in the thread in the French forums about this.
https://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=32506&start=0

Many thanks to lespieuch, for being able to actually talk to a DoW person about the promotion problems, and also to Antoine, for contacting Yann and his team, and Brice for being able to fix it.

I'll hopefully be promoting to Major later this evening. I'll post here again, once I promote.

Yippee!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Congratulations!

I know they are not developing this anymore, but I wish that the other general levels would be opened...

Yeah. It would be nice to be able to make it all the way to General of the Army.

Well it's time to work my way to Lieutenant Colonel. Smile
