Beat a 700 level player with an open flag on the top row.  :)

 

See how many games it takes me to win with a wide open flag(an open flag with no bombs around flag on any side) on every square of the board.  This could take all year.

 

Upload some game videos with commentary to help beginner Stratego players get better on youtube.

* Remain poor Gold but wish for poor Bronze again (Ratings reset).
* I have beaten Hielco and Playa1 before but was never able to beat Nortrom and wish I won't either in 2018 for I wouldn't be eligible for Nortrom University anymore then.
* Wish to beat SPARTIAN WARRIORS for King's.
* Wish to start playing with the special Trump edition piece set (you know, the set with himself for Marshal, Kelly for General, Ivanka for Colonel, Pence for Major, Conway for Captain, Bannon for Lieutenant, The Mooch for Sergeant, Lewandowski for Miner, Huckabee-Sanders for Scout and Melania for Spy, then also Omarosa for Bombs).

1. Win WCO (2017/2018 edition).
2. Win 5th live WC title.
3. Win teamcup.
4. Wish to play with the special Trump edition piece set, where the flag is the key to Lonello's basement, so we can finally lock her up for good.

Solve Nortroms question on his blog for a lesson. Beat losermaker in Rummikub. I guess beat overlord98 in a classic game of stratego. And finnaly not draw Unladen swallow in chess.

-Almost one year has passed since I made this account and I've managed to reach 951 elo rating. I hope to reach 1000 soon and continue climbing the ladder.
-Win promotion to Core this year and Apex next year.
-Finish 15th or better at the WCO.
-Win another medal at a TC tournament.
-Win a medal at the Greek Online Championship (EPOS 2018).
-Hopefully participate in more live tournaments than last year and win a few medals.
-The greatest opponent I've ever beaten at a tournament match is OVERLORD, for a Greek live tournament in June. I hope to beat Nortrom, playa1 or Hielco at a tournament match.
-Successfully stop roeczak's attempt for revenge.
-Upload more tournament matches and possibly ranked matches with English commentary.
-If possible not lose a single tournament match after committing suicide (I share similar goals with Henry here).

Might I suggest:

 

Trump for Marshal

Pence for General

Kelly for Colonel

Sessions for Major

Melania for Captain

DeVos for Lieutenant

Conway for Sergeant

Huckabee-Sanders for Minor

Ivanka for Scout

Hillary Clinton for Bombs

Bernie Sanders for Spy  :P  :D

I hope to become firmly Platinum. I have reached it once and feel sure I can again. I'm hoping to be a mid level Plat player by the end of next year.
