Before playing here, I used to play on onlinestratego.com.
Due to copyright issues the site went offline and when you clicked on that site, you would come out on this site.
So I thought they bought the domain name and they invited all the players from there to come for a play on this site.
However, if you surf now to onlinestratego.com, http://www.villah.co....com&srv=wsl04, then you see that the domain name is not longer in their hands but of a company named Villah.
So they bought the domain, took the info of all the players from there and after that, they sold the domain name?


It's perhaps a delicate issue but I'm just wondering.

Perhaps they just bought the rights to the program/game and not the site domain itself.  Would make no sense to buy a domain if they weren't going to use it anymore.

This is somewhat a delicate issue of which i don't have all the facts.

 

But i believe that this domain was indeed bought, and that the traffic going onlinestratego.com should link to stratego.com.

Which for some reason it is not doing at the moment. Very strange, i have put someone on this to figure out why it is not linking to Stratego.com.

 

Thanks for noticing this :D

I, also, originally played at onlinestratego, and it was a Jumbo site. But, it was very poor (and hasn't improved much in being reborn HERE on this site. Bear in mind I was still in England. Which is WHY I am not too impressed with the claim that my LAG TIME IS THE PROBLEM, (NOW THAT I live in Thailand).

For some reason, I think it was to play 'bubble shooter' games, I joined Facebook, and recently stratego appeared as an APP.
I loaded that app, and had deja vu. Still Jumbo, but now a keesing games was listed.
Hmm......I went directly to stratego.com, signed in with information from the OLD Jumbo site, and here I am.
I have deleted the Facebook App.

To be quite honest...i didn't know this site linked to stratego.com :P

Anyhows, it has been sorted and it now links to stratego.com again ^_ ^
