Mick, do the scouts move faster when moving multiple squares? If so could they also be moving faster when moving between two squares as the result of a bug.
It could be lag, but I often notice the scouts seem to move faster. Though this could be a sign I am playing too much Stratego.
As I've said, the scout moves just as fast from 1 tile to another as any other unit will do.
It will also use the same amount of time to travel from 1 tile to 1 more.
So if it takes 0.5sec to travel 1 tile, it will take him 0.5sec to travel 10 tiles. (do note that this is not 0.5sec)
Any other speed-differences are caused by the connection-speed of the wifi/internet
