hello all,

im still fairly new here and im wondering if it is possible to reverse the rank numbers from euro style to american. for the last ten years ive been playing the american version where the marshal=1, general=2, colonel=3.....scout=9. is or will that ever be an option on this site?

thanks

Hi,

You can adjust this easily.
Go to your profile and in the middle it says : "My pieces"
Click below 'primary' and 'secondary' and above your managed set-ups.
Could be that you have to pay 200 battlecoins for these pawns but eventually that's free because everbody gets 200 free coins.

Good luck

i still dont see what to click to change the marshal into a 1 instead of a 10

where you pick from primary & secondary...i paid the 200 battle coins...so now i think thats what made the authentic pieces available but those still have the marshal numbered as a 10

picking from the primary/secondary just means what color you play with, right?
and original or authentic is just a different picture, not rank number, correct?

and all those optional coat of arms are just back side emblems? nothing to do with the rank numbers?

what exactly do i turn on or off to make it show the marshal numbered as a 1 and the scouts numbered as 9's?

sorry...im just not able to find the option to do so.

you can not change the numbers - I also hope that it is possible in the future :)

Also in Europe, it was so by the numbers ;)

There are two ways of displaying your pawns.
Or it's the modern version where the marshall is your number 10 and all the pawns have a stupid ridiculous face.
Or it's the classic version where the marshall is the number one and where the faces are the classic ones.

Or you chose for the modern version or you chose for the other version.
Normally it shouldn't be such a problem but if you still don't get the display you want and you don't understand it,
I suggest you contact a moderator or ask the question on the section "bugs".

Normally this should be very simple to do.
I also like the classic version way better then my marshall as number 10 and a stupid face :)

In the classic version also has the 10 :)

so which number system is the original? my impression is that stratego was invented in europe (holland) and the original pieces had the marshal #10....but then the americans, like with most things...changed it to marshal #1 general #2. the reason im assuming that is because it seems like most Europeans prefer the marshal=10
Hmm....i wonder where that marshal went
