Does it mean the new "upgraded" version is the one that carries all those cartoonish characters?

Omg it is really ugly. I better not login to my account and get upgraded. :|

that's truth !   it's a game for children !
Perhaps the marketing team of stratego.com wants to focus only on those age groups (this is my own explanation). Obviously, if there was a different orientation would make changes like the following: Implementing all the square rules in a correct way, ability choice settings (free / bufer / a clock), history games for all players  etc.

I told earlier that I saw in the app store the new version (shitty one I call it) and the good old version also. That has changed however... The good old one is no longer available. And I am being asked if I want to update my version of the game. Which of course I will not do. I do not know what is wrong with the people who make up this new app and think it is a better version than the original one. Come on guys, not everything needs to be changed in this world. Let some things please stay how they are.

Help! I am being punished right away. I got the shitty app without doing anything. How did this happen!

End of my stratego days I guess...

I can luckily, but for how long will that stay as it is? It is Mick's burning ambition to change everything so it seems.

That's what I fear too.

Let's enjoy the last weeks of real stratego we can play here  :rolleyes:

Sorry for my diarrea of posts but I cannot understand a thing of the app. I have just tried to play a game, it was against Kostas. I lost in17 minutes of course because I could not concentrate on the damned game and then I lost 27 points... How can I lose 27 points? I agree with Mr. Smith, let us enjoy the game while we can on the site and then Mick has achieved his goal, to get his children playing the game and lose the adults who like to play it too. But it is all about the number right Mick, the more people who play, the better it is.

One time I won against a gold miner and only went up 21 points. Kostas would have to be lower silver for you to lose 27. That's really weird.

Wait: If I have the "old" app, or the one with one row graveyards, will it be updated automatically to the new version, the one with two row graveyards?

When will it be updated? Based on what other players tell me, I shouldn't look forward to it.

Gravon is a great site. The programming is superior.  I've had some fun games against hielco and sohal there.

 

The only downside is there's not enough players there.

 

And the other downside is it won't let me play ranked games on Gravon.

Gravon is fine but the UI here is cleaner and nicer. This site has more players and an active development team. I will stick here.

To play ranked on Gravon you need to contact an admin. Sohal helped me with that so talk to him.

An active development team? lol

 

Doing what exactly? Messing up our multiplayer game so it's designed for children.

I play on both sites. Although soon as the multiplayer online is ruined I will leave. The new design unfortunately is unplayable for me. :(

I do hate the new look of the soldiers. The ranks are hard to see, they are very cartoonish, and the buffer only appears when you are using it. Not to mention that you can't even make strategies for quick games.
