Since today a big surprise waits anyone who will try to connect with the game.

Without any previous briefing , the owners of the site decided to block all the accounts and ask for ''upgrade''' with a cost of 5.99 USD

Despite the fact I personally believe that this is a big chance for a better future (new start of the leaderboards, exclusion of many inactive and multiple accounts etc.), I disagree with the way they choose to apply these changes. At least we deserved to be informed about ,earlier.

Indeed...this is amazing, only happened in the last 2 hours or so as I checked earlier this morning and all was fine. Hope we get an update, or some sort of announcement soon.

I can get in again, so probably was a mistake or a preview of things to come.

I know a lot of you like to pay for Stratego but I will stop playing if this would ever come into effect.

 

If you like to pay for Stratego I suggest you donate your money to ISF or something or save it up to go to tourneys like the WC in Waterloo ;)

Probably what happened today was a mistake or test for coming changes.

Anyway admins must inform us about what happened.

I hope for the second possibility  ''test for coming changes''

You will loose dozens of thousands of users.... ofcourse many are those we like to loose... but there will also be lots we want here, for example many users from Greece who are in a terrible crisis right now and won't be able to afford even 1 dollar, don't even own a computer so must play in internetcafés. I will always support that group.

 

Karaiskakis caught this fast so we are able to see a sneakpeak of what's coming but if I check correctly this will be only on android-side with apps and all, not inlog via a PC. That will still give room for mentioned group to continue playing and I can support such a decision.

it's true in Greece have change all (not only in the banking system) and more people don't have credit cards while had all before 7-8 years . if one credit card can pay only one account then ... will lost many of Greek users . if one credit card can pay many accounts then ....I think that some Greeks will be willing to help !!!
