All the progress sounds good so far! I have two think to mention tough:
1: Vincent de Boer once wrote a program for a computer stratego player. It was able to beat mid ranked players. Because he has so much trouble with this, i doubt it that the programmers on this site have been able to create a even stronger computer player, which is difficult for all.
''Do not worry Gary! We've ensured that everyone on the Stratego-team is now an excellent Stratego-player and knows the game inside out.''
How long has the team been working on this? I think it is not much longer than a month or so. With all respect, i think you are underestimating the game then. It takes years to become an ''excellent'' stratego player, and there are only a few on this site, i want to mention satan, nortrom and sohal here. With a month of training you will probably not even reach the silver league. Don't want to sound to harsh, but i think it is underestimated how complicated the game is.
