Guys

 

Please consider that this is the official site of stratego. Most of us have made huge efforts to create the most active stratego community ever in this site, we have spend thousands of hours to built a good system for playing the game in both fun and competitive way , we have covered all the weak points with solutions by ourselves and good organisation. Admins and youda must respect our opinion and listen to our voice. Leaving now this site will destroy everything we have done all these difficult years.

Of course if they want to destroy this , they can do it anytime and very easily, but I think that they are smart people and they will avoid this disaster.

Only thing we must do all of us (and especially these people who already play in new app) is to post our opinion and our preference.

Until now noone want to play with new app , at least as it looks now.

I prefer the current piece art. The app offers the option to purchase it for 600 battle coins which I will do if need be.

I talked to a lot of stratego masters, Ex: Sevenseas, and they said that they will leave the site once the new app it put into effect. If you want to keep your players, do not put into effect the new app. Keep it as it is. Everyone loves it that way. IF you do this, 

 

1) You will keep your players

2) The players will be happy

3) You will be happy because you have players

 

If you do not:

 

1) other websites will get more players

2) players will leave

3) remaining players will think about leaving

4) Everyone doesn't like the website

5) You don't get many new players

6) You aren't happy because you have no players

7) Everything is a disaster for the site and it falls apart

8) stratego.com is no more.

 

I love this website and this game, but please, if you want to keep your players, do not force us to get the new app. Not one person I have talked to supports it.  It would be much better to keep it where it is.

I have played once on the new app to try it out. The animation is cartoonish, the pieces are hard to see, you can either have the graveyards on the screen and it'll be tiny or not have them on the screen and you have to open them up with the menu. Also, not to mention you can't create setups for the quick games, therefore making them useless. And, the buffer can only be seen when it is being used.

It's for little kids who can't even play the game.  The ones that put their flag in the front row with the spy.

Just to clarify how useless the Quick Arena games are now: My stats today are 40 wins and 2 losses right now because the app players have no chance with transparent setups. So boring...

I am not joking, my son Achilles is 4 years old and many friends here know him.
...... is truth he plays only with new app.
Really I believe in these age groups it will have success  (4 to 10 years old)

It is quite simple then. The new app for children and the old app (for me it is old because I am KICKED OUT of the good old app) for us. What is wrong with that, it cannot be too difficult can it?

Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt

If I am reading it correctly to retain the old graphics/pieces u got to pay 600 battle coins.

 

I think this must go down as one of the worst ever marketing move in the history of mankind to penalize veterans of the game.

 

Instead of addressing some critical issues affecting the game, and not creating a subscriber-only clean ranking that eliminates multiple accounts.

 

U cannot just focus on "children". Their monies/allowances come from parents. If the adults lose interest, the children will not get to play too. And the real world champions in stratego is adults.

Your reading is partly incorrect. You can pay 600 battle coins to get artwork on your pieces similar to the current "new" pieces in the old app that we all love. But you will not get the old app by paying 600 BC.
