MGSteve, you are at (-157). Got a ways to go. You need to be at +300 to graduate.

Could you tell me how to find that? I downloaded map rank and used it, which led me to believe that I'd gone way up but... I obviously read it wrong.

It's possible I plugged in the wrong info. Especially after checking back a while and you were close then.

Here's how to do it: Go to the game finder. Select the following:
--Finished
--6 Player (you can add 7 here if you like)
--Standard AND Terminator
--Classic
--Auto
--Seq
--Esc
--Unlimited
--No Fog
--No Trench
--No Limit
--24 Hours
Don't specify Joinability (we want to see all games, public, private, and SoC together)
Don't specify Tournament
Don't specify Label
Enter your name in the "With Player" field

Click on Map Rank, not search. A new window will open to show you the stats.

A Ha! I have discovered the problem. If I only scan SoC Terminator games, MGSteve, you are at exactly +300. However, we have to look at the whole enchilada, so you do have a ways to go still. Keep plugging and you'll get there.

If you want to try and speed things up, and feel like you don't need to post all the time, you can try creating private games in the callouts forum, where you can play against others the same rank as you. Those games still count toward graduating, as long as they match our criteria.

Thanks Dhallmeyer; I did not know this either. I should be ashamed of myself. LOL.

But I can't figure something out. These are the games that I won...

111 Points for Game 10352767 Round 11
053 Points for Game 10476657 Round 11
115 Points for Game 10504135 Round 09
065 Points for Game 10775410 Round 12
114 Points for Game 10902804 Round 7
108 Points for Game 11122935 Round 10
466 in total win score.

My question is; Are points removed when I lose a game?

Because I don't see 466 points anywhere in the Map rank.

The chart pops up and goes from Scanning...0% to Scanning...Infinity% and just stays there so, like so many things, my dell seems unable to manage it. I'll let it set for a while to see if it actually does anything but so far, after waiting thru a chess game and starting over, there's no other info. And since I tend to open a number of both standard and terminator games when I need to replace the 2 that I'm reporting, I'll keep playing more of these games and try to cut down on the team play a bit. Hopefully I'll be able to stop this latest backwards slide and graduate soon.

I remember the feeling when I was a student. the wins come SOOOOOO slowly sometimes.

If maprank is giving you trouble, you can search the old-fashioned way. Fill out the game finder the same way, but click search at the end, and you'll see a list of all the games that match the criteria. Get a sheet of paper and check the log for each to see your point change at the end. Then tally it all up and see if it matches my figures.

It finally worked... I think. I'll start playing more of these games but stay away from the speed games and see how it goes. Thanks for all the info and help. SoC is great!

I will now be the Graduation liaison.

From here forward if anyone thinks they qualify to graduate post here and send me an email explaining why. I will run the info by the current teachers and then I will have you play two games with SOC staff to see what you have learned. One does not have to necessarily win to graduate as several factors determine it. Its not a pass fail type of deal.

We look for what you have learned, game play and attitude.

I just did the map rank again and am currently a +453 so I believe I'm ready to play those last 2 games. I've made Lt several times since I joined and even made Cpt a time or 2 so I think I meet all the requirements. Looking forward to those games.

okie dokie, ya'll....I believe I'm ready to graduate...

#1: check. I can post the forum links if necessary.

#2: check. I achieved Lt. this morning (score of 1664). I use Google Chrome, so I can't use maprank, but I have won several SoC games, both Standard and Terminator.

#3: check

#4: Complete 2 Final Exam games against the staff. Just need an invite or two please

#5: Graduates must demonstrate a good attitude and a willingness to learn. All teachers have input on potential graduates' behavior. I usually bring beer or pizza...lol

Well done. As a formality I will pass on for input from other teachers and then I will post 2 games. Sounds good to me though. I will PM when games are ready.

I'd like to put in for graduation consideration, please.

The only part I'm not sure about are the forum posts, though. I stopped posting games a while ago to allow other students access, and never got back to it. If i need to post a few more to graduate, I'm happy to do so.

Thanks!
