MickM, with all due respect have you ever played Stratego? You should not be the one to decide how the game should or should not be played.
It is imperative that the players should be able to choose their own setups for Stratego games.
As a compromise, how about an option where players can have a "random setup" button on the setup screen, like the one we have now on the browser version?
I have! As has the rest of the team ever since we've been young.
Seeing as we're partnering with JUMBO to help bring new life to Stratego, I believe we are the ones to decide how the game should be played!
Players can still make and choose their own setup. That is not lost.
In Quick Battles however, players will ge randomly given one out of 70+ setups to battle with.
4. Are you sure that you understand what a "quick game" means?
Maybe you should play some games to understand what the game is about..
As Fairway said: The game is useless if we can't create our own strategies.
I think you're misunderstanding the actual meaning of the word "quick" here.
Quick Battles imply that a player can play a battle in a short period of time. For example; when someone is waiting for the bus, in the elevator or on the toilet, someone can squeese in a little battle without all the fuss of creating a setup, waiting for the other player to choose a setup and then having 40 units at your disposal.
You can still create your own strategies!
