Hello all Stratego fans and players!
We wanted to share an update with you so everybody knows where we stand and what we all can expect the following months.
As some of you know the original Stratego crew has moved a little to the background.
Although all of them are still in the company there has been a shuffle.
The reason is that we all want to take the brand Stratego to the next step.
The Stratego Multiplayer game is definitely a big part of that.
But there are other important products that also need attention.
The Single player version for example (currently only available in iPhone) is really outdated and does not fit the quality of the brand anymore. So we are focussed and committed to create a great new version of that game that will attract both existing and new players, young and old.
As we love Stratego so much we want it to be here for decades.
For this the youngsters also need to interact with the brand.
What does this imply for the Multiplayer version.
We changed the head of community management to Esther. She will be the main contact.
Outside the forum there is a really good conversation going with the global moderator team to investigate the most important tweaks / fixes and updates.
Before we can do anything this needs to be clear. Their cooperation is awesome and there already is a strong list of important improvements wishes like: Automatic anti double chase, Select minimum ELO rank.
Having these wishes is one. Investigating if these are doable in the software is two.
And actually implementing them is three.
The new people of the Stratego team first need to understand the code base. And that takes time. Especially if you know it’s only a very small team working on multiple products.
After the code base is picked up and analysed we can investigate if the improvements are doable and estimate the time needed for implementation.
In the mean time we keep supporting the game and try to offer a smooth experience on all devices, iOS, Android and Online.
Hope you enjoy playing Stratego!
We sure do and we are working hard with a very committed team to create the best Stratego experience out there.
