The "bugs" forum doesn't seem to be posting topics that I ever post, so I'll post in here.
Question about achievements: do the battle achievements only correspond the full games? Or can you earn them in quick games?
The reason I'm asking is because if you can earn them in quick games, I should have received both 'Master Maneuver' and 'Cavalry Raid' (Capture six enemy units in a row and capture three enemy units and the flag in a row with a single piece, respectively) last game. Is this glitch?

yes you can win medals on quick games ive won the gambler on a quick game (where you kill the marshall with your spy before any piece on the board has been seen ) but you can't win points one a quick game

How can you get the Cavalry Raid in a quick game?
That means you took the marshall and killed all the pieces on the board in a single blow?
Two miners, two scouts, the general and the spy,....and this after each other without a single escape move from your opponent? It's impossible :)

It was his first game, poor guy. I took a both miners, a scout, spy, general followed by the flag.
But I realised - do the captures have to be one after another exactly - with no space between captures - or is it enough that he doesn't capture anything of mine in between the gaps?
I think it was like my marshal killed like this or something: miner - move - spy - move - move - general - move - miner.. you get the idea. But he didn't take any of my pieces.

No space between captures. One after another,...that's the cavalry raid.
So in the quick game this is mathematically impossible because you only have 7 pawns to move.
Therefore it's excluded that you can jack 6 units in a row.

I just got my Calvary Raid badge only a week ago in a full game.  Didn't think it was that hard of a badge to get at first, but finally got it when when I knew where all the bombs were and he allowed my General to sneak into his middle zone where all his lower pieces were at and his open flag.

Finally,.........it took me blood, sweat and tears but finally I'm silver.
Played against Marlborough, 45 wins, 1 loss and I took him down the drain for his second loss.

Wieeehaaaaa, up to gold

I tried for the cavalry raid - and got it! I thought I might as well, I knew where a few of his bombs were, and I was winning by so much it wouldn't matter either way. Did it with my colonel :)

I'd like to give another here, of course can't mention their name but, it was a player who used to use spam bug to win their games and was still ranked a silver when I faced them.  I managed to CAPTURE their open FLAG WITH MY SPY and we still had half of our army on board!  Person tried to insult me saying I'm too passive of a player and I'll never amount to anything, yet this person only moved their Marshall and General on their first row in their zone for entire game and........ I CAPTURED THEIR FLAG WITH MY SPY!!  I told person, I may not be the best player on here, but at least I got where I am fairly and I CAPTURE THEIR FLAG WITH MY SPY!!  Final funny thing was, I never even moved my General or second colonel and got where I needed to go to win the game.
