13 now. This is a critical vote because if Mick is persisting in his idea that stratego is merely a game for kids then the site is dead. And as Karaiskakis rightly puts it that would be a shame for all the people who have put so much effort in it.

Mick: please listen to reason!

No matter what the votes will say, our decision will remain as it is :)

This site is not dead; activity is very nice and better than it has been in a LONG while!

 

We do appreciate your support ;)

None of the participants in the tournaments (except of Gary Shelton, I do not see him very satisfied) do not play with the new app, it implies that tournaments will be ended here then it also implies none serious people will not writes here .
What does this mean ?   (the site will be dead ;) )

Of course Mick, your kids are playing the game. The new app is a CHILD'S game for crying out loud. But it is obvious you will not listen to us so have fun with your kids. Playing with the I pad is impossible now, if playing the normal adult game on the site is impossible, you have lost your adults. Also to put a smiley after the decision that you do not listen to your paying customers says it all... I hope one day you will regret this.

The forum is rather active though. But I do see the forum and the game as 2 seperate things.

I don't really see any extreme differences between now and 2 years ago...

I'm sorry you feel this way :)

We are trying to reach a much larger audience of all ages to let them enjoy the beauty of the game that is Stratego! I don't think we have lost all adults. Some may find the change a little hard at first, but will get over it in time :)
We've gained a lot of new players, for which we are really happy!

 

Also, don't mistake my usage of smileys for not paying attention. We do listen to everything everyone says here. In the end, we try to make the best decision accordingly.

19 votes for old app plus mickm voting for new app.It's a landslide.

 

But MickM won't change it as the primary source of revenue is children playing the app and bothering mum + dad to buy battlecoins for their avatars etc. This isn't about gathering a larger audience, it's just about the bottom line profits for Jumbo.

 

It is impossible for any serious player to play on the new app. We can't "get over it in time" as MickM describes as there are substantial, fundamental flaws in the way the app was developed which means it is extremely frustrating to use.

To all,

as sad as it is to conclude but this is senseless as Mr. God of Stratego will not listen to arguments. Maybe we are all crazy as it is obviously a child's game, why have we not thought about it that way? We are the idiot adults who love playing it and God of Stratego is right. I will play until not only my app has turned into cartoon figures but the site also.
