Dear Stratego,

I just made a HUGE error. I downloaded the new app. Is there any chance you will bring back the old app?

If not, my stratego career will be done. No way I can use the new version.

AMEN!

 

And no, Mick is not bringing back the old app. :-/

In all fairness, you could see te updated trailer and screenshots, when downloading the app. Contact customercare@stratego.com if you want a refund. If you wish to play the old version, might I suggest the web-client?

It's not just me; it's a team-effort and we've been over this ;)

Admin,

Most people just click "update all", which updates all their Apple apps at once.

This new Stratego app is complete garbage. I hope Jumbo didn't pay too much to the developers.

Please make the older version available for download. I can't deal with this nonsense.

If you blindly choose to update something without checking it, you run the risk of installing updates you might not want. We cannot do anything about that...

 

That being said, if you are not pleased with the update, please contact customercare@stratego.com

 

You can also play the web-client if you wish to play the old version!

Flash does not work on Apple-devices, but for iPad, you can download the app from the appstore.

Obviously, I'm late to an old debate.

After reviewing these forums, it appears that everyone hates the new app, and Jumbo has a tough luck attitude.

I'll miss stratego. Played well over a thousand games. However, time to move on and go back to chess.com or some thing else.

Not going to waste anymore time on here.

The debate about the new app is one-sided, yes. But there is one tremendously enjoyable thing about the new app compared to the old one. That is that this new app plays much better on a phone. The button to access the graveyards bothers some people but this button allows the game board to be much larger. The old app, always being landscape and with smaller graveyards, was unusable on a phone. Unless one had a magnifying glass to see the graveyards with! ☺

FYI: I was at an elementary school thursday, the kids ( aged ± 11 ) said " I have no idea how to use this new app and the pieces are bad and different. " 

 

Perhaps we can send some smileys to make feel them better?

 

On a serious note, I haven't tried the new app at all as I don't like playing on mobile devices anyway, but they didn't seem impressed.

the only way to curb multiple accts setup and cheating/scouting setups is to make people pay. Subscription-based. The ranking will be clean. If u do not want to pay, totally fine, continue playing on the ranking that is available now, with no restrictions. There should be a separate subscriber-based ranking, and this list will be real accts.

 

That's not true.  You can easily stop cheating(by scouting with multiple accts) by not allowing players to see who they are playing against.  It gives no players an advantage when you play anonymously.  You would be playing pure Stratego.   You could show your opponent's statistics (won/loss record)for the last 25 or 50 games before the start of the game.  That would give you a decent idea of how good your opponent is without revealing who they are.  Then just setup your board based on that data.  At the end of the game, just reveal the stats and name of the player you played.  

 

People could still buy multiple accounts if they really, really wanted to cheat with a subscription model.  Playing against an anonymous player totally eliminates cheating by scouting.

The above would eliminate this problem. However it eliminates with it another aspect of the game - knowing who your opponent is and forming a strategy against them in light of having played them before.

Very few people actually scout setups. Yet so many people worry about this. It is also very easy to protect against. Just use a different setup.
