I got promoted... finally Thu, 16 August 2012 04:32
Back when I got promoted to Major, I lost all interest in chasing promotions. I know the requirements are out there somewhere, but I didn't really care. I figured I might eventually get promoted to Lt Colonel but I didn't really care if or when it happened.

Well, it happened today so I just thought I'd post how long it takes when you aren't trying.. if anyone cares.

My promotion to Major was on Sept 17, 2011.
Lt Colonel came 399 battles later.

Any guesses how long it will be until I reach Colonel?

Congrats!
I have been a Lt. Colonel since Nov. 2011, and until just recently I have not paid much attention to achieving Colonel.
It will probably take you another 399 games Smile

Congratulations!

I followed the guidelines to become a Lt-Colonel but I don't do that for Colonel (this promotion looks too far away). Maybe later I will.

I say we start a Light club and thumb our noses at those Full Birds ( until we get there of course ...)

From a virtual fat desk soldier to Kelly's Hero: congratulations, mate! Such a promotion is even more gratifying, for sure.

It is a really nice desk, mahogany I believe. It holds my papers and pens up perfectly. Cool

Congratz Kelly's Hero!

I did care about getting to Lt Col by that point I think, and it took me 207 games to your 399

It took 281 to get to Colonel, so if you keep the same ratio you should expect to take 550-600 games to get to Colonel. However I expect it to take longer, as unless you are trying to get Col there are some maps you are unlikely to play by chance

One of the main requirements for promotion to Colonel is winning (a subset of) all scenarios from both sides.

If you never complete this requirement as Lt. Colonel, whatever else you do, you won't be promoted.

The information about what scenarios is available in another thread in this forum.

Please if you choose not to seek promotion don't belittle those who do or did.

Well, in that case - pull up a chair, kick your feet up on the Old Man's desk, and have at his cigars !

But you will understand if we don't offer you a badge for joining our little posse...

Hey! What's wrong with being a 'full bird' Colonel? It's been my lifelong ambition, actually.

But then, I am a duck, after all..
