I watch Stratego videos on my daily train commute. Sometimes people look at my iPad to see what kind of game it is. I haven't come across anyone who recognizes it and strikes up a conversation about it.


I hereby grant explicit permission to all my opponents to record and publish my games as they see fit.

My Stratego goals before the end of 2018:-

-Attempt to reach 1000 ELO on the game and/or hope to do well in online tournaments
-If I have improved significantly, I may consider visiting the world championship.
-Figure out how to record videos, and upload some of my games to Youtube
-Help out this community in any way I can

4 months down, 8 to go. Update :

-Reach a rating of 1000 LOL still a long way
-Win promotion to Apex Division in Pyramid League (top 3 in Core or otherwise) Will fight hard for that
-Improve last years position on Greek Ch'ships (8th) 3rd now -yay
-Win a medal in at least 2 live opens (like this year) Already I have the most important one - the key to getting the second is when MN is still in Southampton :)
-Beat (not just draw) a top 5 player in a tournament game( Hielco,Nortrom,playa,Overlord,Losermaker) I've beaten Hielco in a ranked game on Gravon, and also drew with OL in the Greek Ch's- good enough 
-Upload some commentary videos in English and Greek - Sure! I'll make more!
-Get revenge on Major Nelson for his lottoing! - LOLOL, about three weeks ago in a ranked with Derrick Rose i did get revenge with the same style :) - but i dont consider that satisfactory as we never have faced for a tourney yet :)

Not much progress for my goals, but I did reach a new personal best at 920 ELO. :)

Hit Platinum level rank

Crush my opponents 

Get Crushed by Platinum players

Assist opponents that want/need assistance in game tactics

Meet even more players Globally

Haven Fun  :D  

It is closing in on 6 months so I figured I would also add update on goals.

Still Gold but got along way to go for Platinum---working at it !

Have crushed many an opponent---complete will continue it.

Most definitely have been crushed by Platinum but got a few wins in---complete will slow loses to Platinum.

Always happy to assist any player other than the ONE that I blocked. Will not offer them anything other than beat down ! ---complete 

Have met and continue to meet people from all over-  I do wish I was attending a certain event in Europe .---work in progress

Almost always have fun--Win or Lose if not set me straight please !---89%-93% working on it( NOT A SAINT)   :)  ;)  :D

-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.

Succeeded - current best elo rating: 1068. I'm changing this goal to reaching 1100 before the end of the year.
-Win promotion to Core this year and Apex next year.

Succeeded in the first goal, I'll have to wait a lot to see if I can achieve the second one, too.
-Finish 15th or better at the WCO.

Succeeded - finished 6th.
-Win another medal at a TC tournament.

Failed so far, Pyramid League is my last chance for this year.
-Win a medal at the Greek Online Championship (EPOS 2018).

Too early to know, but I'm on a good track right now.
-Hopefully participate in more live tournaments than last year and win a few medals.

Succeeded. I have already participated in two live tournaments in 2018 and won a silver and bronze medal and I'm going to participate in at least 3 more by the end of this year.
-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.

Failed so far. I had two chances against Hielco at the Backstabbers Final and I didn't make it (1 draw and 1 defeat). I also lost to Nortrom in PRO Ladder. Still, I may get matched up with Nortrom or playa1 or both in the live WC in August or in the WCO. It's not too late.
-Successfully stop roeczak's attempt for revenge.

Failed when he beat me in the Champions League Quarter-final - my first defeat in a tournament match against him, well done 'zak.
-Upload more tournament matches and possibly ranked matches with English commentary.

I think I've done a good job here and I'll continue uploading games.
-If possible not lose a single tournament match after committing suicide (I share similar goals with Henry here).

I don't remember any huge blunder in a tournament match this year, so this is going well, too, so far.

Well I achieved my goal of reaching Gold, but now that I'm back into the 300s I suppose my next goal will be to sustain 500. :lol: :rolleyes:

Halfway to gold, silver captain now with a 406 rating. Still 94 more to go this year :) My net win rate (52%) is just too low to move up faster. I can't recall a win streak much longer than 5 even.
