Napoleon : you're right....we should not follow the ISF rules regarding the "continuous chasing part" since this is an online stratego site.
Those chasing rules are mainly used in real live tournaments of the ISF. But apart from that, I bet eighty percent of the people don't even know those rules,....for sure!
Gary : ISF = International Stratego Facists, true
And they earn that title completely by one issue only,....the "continuous chasing" part which is NOT, I repeat Sohal, it's NOT a matter of not understanding,...........I understand it perfectly but the ISF just doesn't want to understand STRONG VALID arguments about WHY chasing one piece continuously is NOT the same as chasing MORE pieces continuously.
I'm not gonna do that explanation all over again but if you look good in the forum, you'll find TONS of valid arguments why the ISF is COMPLETELY WRONG with their definition of continuous chasing.
It's exactly this stupid rule that prevents me from playing live tournaments cuz' it really irritates me as hell
The 2s-rule is a good invented rule for instance,.....first I was against it but I after a time I could understand why they created this.
Sadly enough this is not the same for the continuous chasing part.
Lack of details in their rule section which makes it a very vague and a very debatable issue by all means.
