I would to sugget in the future, if it is possiable to allow players to return to their game if they were suddenly booted off because ISP turned off briefly, power flickered off, or they accidently closed out their game window. If their buffer time still has time remaining and they can log back within that time, I see no reason why the game should automatically end and the other player declared the winner. The last site I played at gave us 2 minutes to make a move (many times there were bugs that forced us to relog on) if you came back within 2 minutes after game logged you off, you can still resume game. I've only had this happen to me once on this site, where my firefox locked up and I had to reopen my brower to relog into this site. I'm sure there have been others out there this may have happened to them too. I do also understand many people who do close out their game window are just quitting game because they are losing, but I don't see how waiting a few minutes won't be that much of a hinderance for the player to wait out the buffer time to be declared the winner. This is just a suggestion too think about, there may be a few of our players out there that may have issues at times with their computer beyond their control.

Are there any plans for this to be included in the game?

Hi All,


What follows immediately below is a response to me from Karen the Stratego Community Manager.  Below that is the question I originally sent her.   GLS



Dear Gary,

We are working on implementing precisely the solution you propose: if you lose
connection you have 1 minute to return to the game. We will implement this

With kind regards,

Van: Gary Shelton 
Onderwerp: failed
internet connections losing games?

Hi, During play,
I've been both the victim of, and the recipient of, the misfortune of an
internet connection that hiccuped and caused me to lose (and twice even to win).
My question is, does it require only, merely, a blip in the connection to sever
one from the game, or does the outage have to be longer. I only know that I
either won suddenly or lost suddenly. It was surprising either way. If it is
kicking us out of the game for only a momentary lapse in connection, perhaps
this can be rectified to allow for the special occasion when one or the other
player's internet connection briefly wavers? Perhaps a separate BUFFER timer,
like the one used in play, can be instituted, and set for say, 5 minutes, to
allow for the potential recovery of the downed connection. If not accomplished
within the special buffer timer, then yes, the game would be forfeit. Good idea?

Yes they are putting this feature in.  It is just taking longer than expected.
