I'm a non-premium member at the moment so I cannot confirm my status correctly.

I have 8 finished games with one surrender, I don't know about NMR's although none in my recent games, but I am pretty sure I had a few when I started. If it only considers ranked games I have 2 with 1 more in progress and 1 more pending which should make me an ambassador soon. Hopefully a Star Ambassador and a Silver member in a few months.

The Surrender was actually my most recent game. It was a friends game that I set up for some people I knew that was set to be anonymous. A player revealed which country they were and then got fed up with the game and purposefully collapsed their lines to throw the game. At that point I surrender as I was dead and I really didn't want to play in a game that had been completely titled by a salty player. I don't know if that is justified in the classicist eyes. And if not I will re-apply once I have played 5 new games. I have one in the works and another pending which should give me ambassador status. Hopefully meaning I can be a Star Ambassador and a Silver member here soon :)

Thanks for the consideration.

Oh, Thanks for the details. While I have that ranking I don't have the true experience to back in. Only 2 ranked games with another one on the way. Need to balance out and I will likely fall off a bit more.

I don't remember a surrender in a norank besides the recent one and have no clue how to look it up. But that NMR rate :( I didn't realize I had been so bad historically. I have been very careful not to NMR in recent games. Looks like I may need some more games before I can reapply. Looking at the requirments it says no more than 5 NMR's in the last five games to get probationary status and 90% for bronze. I will attempt to fill both or either of those in my next few games. I am pretty sure I had no NMR in my last game and I have none in my current one, but that is only 3 turns in.

Thanks for the help Willie! I'll look at reapplying in a couple more games when I can hopefully make Bronze right off the bat.

mff11d7,

You have completed a total of 11 games. 9 of those are Rank/NoRank and 2 Friends games (which don't count towards eligibility criteria).
Your most recent surrender was in Game# 126605, a NoRank game. Since then, you have completed two additional R/NR games.
You will need to complete two more R/NR games for Aspiring. Or three more R/NR for Bronze.

So, do that, and you'll be good to go!
