Are you sure? He's american isn't he?


I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

Actually that explains how he knew about basketball, cause I asked him "Who are you?" and he ironically answered "Michael Jordan". Basketball isn;t really popular in the Netherlands if I am not mistaken.

Highlight of the week on the Stratego front - I just made Platinum for the first time! After a tough loss earlier today, I won two in a row to go from Gold Marshal to Platinum Spy. My schedule has allowed for several games of Stratego lately, and I jumped from Gold Captain just a couple weeks ago. Very happy about my progress!

Thanks, Ouwesok! Your videos have been a great help to me on my journey! I hope you get to Platinum soon, and that I get back... I lost my only game yesterday and am a Gold Marshal again. 

 

I did notice when progressing from Silver to Gold that it took a few trips back down to Silver before becoming firmly entrenched in the Golden ranks. I seem to be a very streaky player, usually losing several in a row then winning several.

We need to start a club for streaky players. :) To qualify you'd need to win 5 in a row, lose 5 in a row, and then win 5 in a row again in the past year. I could qualify twice!... :)

One time i won 16 in a row .
Multiples of times i have lost 5+ in a row when I get angry with sth that happened in a game and bring the marshal or the general.

Me and Henry D are the most streaky players on this site :)

I got accused today of trying to sleaze out a tie by...wait for it...Mr.TimRules! Oh, the irony :lol:  :lol:  :lol: !

 

He originally accused me of this because I took a miner and checked to be sure the unmoved piece I thought was a bomb actually was. He did outplay me, and I did ask for a draw eventually to try to spur some action out of him because he was incessantly shuffling. Certainly made me lol coming from the most frequent contributor to the Draw Refusal Thread.

If this is a requirement to join this club then I will be on the Board of Directors. I am sooooo streaky!

It's always 'fun' playing ranked matches.  :wacko:

 

LoveAndMercy says "I like chasing" after I mentioned to him he spent the whole game double chasing, single chasing and wasting time. And he disconnected.

 

 

 

Just had to endure the same from this awesome guy including the classic disconnect after being beat.
