I made major recently which is a first for me. Highest I ever was was captain before I left cc for 2 years. Just from reading SoC threads on how to play escalating, and some help and advice from a couple of awesome friends, I've learned a hell of a lot in the past couple of months. Fast learner :D

Of course, there is always more to learn.


Good Job. And congratz on your new ranking, keep on reeling those points in, (if you stay away from 1v1 I am certain youll be able to gain more ;))!

No, not showboating... This thread does at least 2 things.

#1 It lets you enjoy your new rank-- Which even I did.

#2 lets the new players see that it is possible to go to the next level..

Since joining CC I have played 8 games and lost them all. I have 887 points and am a Cadet. I just started my first two games w/ SoC and I am optimistic that it can only get better from here because I can't do much worse!

I'm a Lieutenant now! I know I haven't been around here in a long time, but it was the strategy I learned at SoC that brought me here. Without this group, I would still be a Private. Thank you Society of Cooks!

Corporal, thanks to SoC training and specifically macbone and betiko. There is still much for me to learn, but I have benefitted IMMENSELY.

"Dude...that's not what I told you to do." -betiko (lol...classic.)

EDIT: I would be remiss in not referencing the strategy guides (the textbooks really) that really expand one's perception of what to consider when analyzing a map. The game becomes exponentially more engaging when you realize there is an awful lot more to it than initial placement and dice luck. :)
