    Hi all,

    Well, I've pulled Empire Deluxe off the shelf, and have played many a
    game in the past week. My question is this: How does the computer
    determine when I get to move up in rank. I am currently a Major, but I
    have been so forever (it sems). Lately, when I win a game, I just get congratulated, but no promotion. No promotion in about 12 games.

    What gives? The manual doesn't say much about this.

    Perhaps the difficulty of the game matters? Just for info, I typically
    play a 40x40 random board, advanced game (sighting rules and exploration). Normally, I play one or two computer opponents, alway set to expert, with
    no handicaps for anyone.

    Should my boards be larger in order to win and get a promotion? Do I need
    to play more opponents at once? I like the small board since I can play a quick game in a single session.


    I love empire I have played it for years. Sometimes losing the game due to computer crashes and starting over. I thought the same thing I will never become a General. But it happened, finally. I was just promoted to Brigadier General.
