I agree that some of the game boards are not anything I would ever choose, but they don't bother me. I just play with the basic, standard board and it's okay for me. I find it to be pretty much the same board that I was used to growing up on the Milton-Bradley American version. The piece styles are more important to me. I was used to those old MB pieces way back when in the 70's I was playing with them, but I like the modern pieces we have today.

Matchups will be generally with people near one's own rank, but of course when one is low ranked there are many more people to play that are higher. In general the longer one waits for a matchup, the farther apart the pairing will likely be from his own rank. If someone is online and is close, the computer will match you quickly.

i hate when i click on a piece and it immediatly moves down. Because of these misclicks i have lost 2 games already. There might be a question before every turn that" Do you want to move there?" In chess it works perfectly and its avoiding all misclicks.

In chess there are far less moves per game than in Stratego so confirming them all in Stratego would be painfull. On a 450 moves game it would mean 450 extra clicks.

 

However I know what you mean, it used to cost me games as well in the past. What some of the players suggested in the past  is an option in your profile that the piece loses focus after each move and has to be actively selected again and then send to the target field.

 

It feels more intuitive than confirming each move but is the same number of clicks if used. By using a profile option only the players that want this extra security have it.
