Playing an Al can not be that exciting that it will beat the real personexperience.
Most players want to compete each other and see their account climb on the (ranked) ladder.

But, I challenge you to surprise us all ;-).

Good luck with your mission! Feed back from all the players enough in the future, because we all love this game and want to help you to get it better and better.

Regards,

Lucky

 

That's the spirit! 
A lot of people on the team have played Stratego in their pasts or some even all their life. 

One of our developers always hated it, but now loves it!

 

It's truly a great game that needs to be played by everyone! :D

Hey, I don't know what everyone is talking about. I'd love to see an improved AI singleplayer game.  Poor players are kept poor by the current AI, but it wouldn't have to be that way.   The only question I would have is that it and the multiplayer match in their respective rules they observe. Now if you play the AI you can see it give 4 moves in 2 squares to the chaser and also see that it completely ignores the HmmNess chasing rule that the multiplayer observes.  

 

MickM, if you have improved the singleplayer game and updated it with ISF anti-chasing rules then it will not match the multiplayer game but maybe will be a good basis for fixing the multiplayer later.  I would like to see close consultation with the MT for consultation and ensuring that all the changes go smoothly.

 

Good luck and thanks!

 

Gary

I saw that you put two new moderators.

Very positive. 
 
I would like to ask you If you are receiving into consideration certain criteria for the definition of a player to moderator

 

 

I think this is more a question to the MT as we assigned Gary and Gpet0 a month ago. Not Mick.

 

We found teamspirit and communicative skills to be criteria for the definition of a moderator.

 

As an extra plus Gary is very active and well informed about things like the chase rules. And Gpet0 is Greek which is really important to us.

 

In a way you can see Gary replacing Rob (Midnightguy) and Gpet0 Greg (Karaiskakis) whom we asked ofcourse who he wanted to be replaced by as a last favor. He mentioned Gpet0 who was also mine and Todd's first pick because of our history together at WSC 15 years ago.

So in other words, it'll be a LONG time before we see the changes we want.

 

I'll go prep for this wonderful "AI" experience by playing my Playstation 4 . . .

Absolutely...it's a truely great game that needs to be played by everyone...this is the basic focus...then it is to optimize it for all desiderata...

As i wrote already in a different post if the other stratego websites are dying while stratego.com is growing it is because the others have no clue what a good marketing strategy is. They focus only on a minority of elite players instead of focusing on the mass of beginners or average players. ...if you want success know your customer...basic marketing principle.
as stratego.com owns the IP rights this is definitely going to be a killer foe the other websites...long life to stratego.com!

Maybe it's not easy to understand for who is not a marketing specialist but when they will see the results of what you are going to do they will "fall"...the faster you can implement the new versions and the desired upgrades in the existing version...the greater the success...

Thank you really very much

Sorry Lonello but I asked the MickM.

 

But Mick can't answer that question. He doesn't appoint moderators, and doesn't know who Gpet0 and Gary are. Actually even I have only met Mick yesterday. So Mick can't do anything with your question, it's one for the MT.

 

Feel free to await his answer though. Or pm him... yesterday that was impossible but it's resolved so you can now pm Mick and Esther.

In regards to the Moderator-appointment. I mearly approved the choice made by the MT a long time ago.

As Lonello said, I don't appoint moderators. The MT does this in collaboration with the administrators.

 

If you want to be a moderator, send me or anyone in the MT a PM and we'll look into it!

 

 

So in other words, it'll be a LONG time before we see the changes we want.

 

I'll go prep for this wonderful "AI" experience by playing my Playstation 4 . . .

 

As we don't know how long "LONG" is, I'd suggest you stick around to see what's gonna happen ;)

Great!  - Welcome aboard and best of luck.

 

I'd echo others that the real game is multiplayer.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

ABSOLUTELY PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE DISCONNECT TO 5-6 MINUTES!!!! 

 

Please consider moving it down to 1 minute as enough of my life is wasted by sore losers that can't hit the disconnect button.

 

Nor do I think you should allow people to specify what ELO they want to play - one of the beauties of this site is that the computer picks your opponent and you have to play people of all levels.

----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Regardless, good luck

Great to hear so manby people are excited! 

I will lock this topic now as it has served its function. Any more discussions related to the Multiplayer can be placed in General Discussions of the appropriate board, while a new board for the Singleplayer is coming!
