Hmm....

 

Best setup also depends on your own...

I update my best setup every week so it doesn't get "old". If it gets too "old", it seems that you go on a cold streak. I think part of my recent cold streak was that I hadn't update my strategy in a month.

Who's VBD? :huh:


That's actually VdB.

Vincent de Boer is a somewhat intelligent, minorly accomplished, hardly-known player from The Netherlands.

One thing you can Google on him is this little paper he wrote on a stratego bot. Don't come back until you've read it all....😅

I like to use this setup. I've won countless games in the past using this setup.

Very versatile, and all your troops are at your disposal when you need them.

Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.  :ph34r:

Obviously there isn't a real best setup. Every setup has its strengths and weaknesses. 

The ''real best setup'' is the one you feel most confident to play with.

Did you catch the sarcasm in what I wrote, Fairway? ☺

Vincent de Boer is a very well known person in the stratego world. Since he's an acknowledged expert, even genius, on stratego AI, this is opposes what was said earlier about him and hence the s-word applies.

Fairway, you should try to wade through what he wrote. See how far you can get. It will be above grade reading level as you are fairly young, but you love the game so that might make all the difference. If you do, it will be a very impressive book review for school! ☺

What an interesting paper! Took me a couple of hours to read the whole thing, but it was more than worth it! What I particularly found fascinating was his thesis of calculated chance of where specific pieces are most likely to be placed on the board. Not to mention the psychological aspects of the game he describes. I was absolutely fascinated the whole paper. Huge thanks for sharing this! :)

One that protects your colonels and majors.

Thanks for all the sharing today. I don't even look much at what the other player is doing. I am full on attack right or left flank. I alternate going down right and left and I don't need to lotto. I am not a great player at Bronze Major, but I am in every game to win it. I want to achieve my goal within 30 minutes. After that my interest wains and I want to do something else. I can sometimes do two games in a row if I win or lose within 10 minutes. 20 minutes is a long game for me. I don't need to post a screenshot as it is of no value to the long game defensive players. Honestly my end game is so bad that I play to my strength. Can't wait to absorb the entire deGroot .pdf. Love watching the great players play on Youtube.

If you want short games and to win, learn to bring your marshal out early and attack well with it.

I can win without blitzing or lottoing. The main skill involved with that style of play is being able to understand how to get the info, also when to get that info and how to prepare for an attack once you have found a good piece (e.g. marshal or general)


I play as Sevenseas & Don't Cry

for example, if the marshal blitzes down your right column, where your main attack force is (including majors and colonels and your marshal, your general is in  the middle, so is his general, what would you do?
