[quote=""Navarone_Guy""]Sporting, I hope to maintain my rank and avoid rated games because I am hoping to shoot for colonel or brigadier after the patch. (Wishful thinking, of course)[/quote]

I really do hope you reach those ranks. It would be a pleasure to play with someone so skilled. And realitsically, I think that you can reach those... me on the other hand... I think my luck has run dry and i've stalled out bigtime.

Paaaleaseeee 36Drew. You are so much better than me. It's all a matter of timing and luck to get that good, of which I am sure you can excell at.
---I am just a level 18 Mstr Sergeant w/India and I am creeping up all the time. If I can creep up the ratings w/India you all can get way better with the better powered civs.

I wonder if I started playing against frequently and lamed China non-stop, if it would affect our rank....

:P

The top 100 isn't even bad considering there are 3620 participants.

I checked it the day before yesterday and we were at 36. I checked it just now and we're at 30. As long as we're in the top 100 I'm happy.

I think you always have some space to learn, you make it sound depressive ^^

I'm definately finding China less lameable than 3 weeks ago. But, I never did you beat you King Kara. You always seemed to have my number!

ill laugh when some people drop a pr level or 2 when they cant lame china anymore......but there are some players who are probs a good 3-4 levels above their standard cos they play whatever civ is deemed as most lame

3-4 levels too high is a very conservative estimate, kingchris...i would imagine that some people might be as much as 5 or 6 PR higher than they should be if they do nothing but disciple FF.

I'd be unsurprised if I could reach Nav's PR if I did that, just played rated non-stop and did all disciple FF's.

Thanks Drew. You, however, are almost able to beat me consistently using mediocre civs vs. my mediocre civs, and 1v1 is definitely my forte. You are by NO means bad. Once the patch comes around, I'm sure we'll both improve.
Groovy.
