It is good to have a new version for a new public. But i think what you need to confirm here is that the introduction of the new version will not delete the old one ... it will only come "in addition to it".
Also you understand that 2 tournaments are currently ongoing which involve more than 100 players. These tournaments cannot be just "deleted" because of a new version. These tournaments shall end somewhere around beginning of 2016. So i think for reassuring all the public here it would be wise if you can confirm that the old version will not be deleted or at least not before a 1:1 equivalent platform exist that will allow 100% of the existing features (including existing design) to remain and that will have been tested and approved by some of the fans of this forum or from international stratego federations.
Looking forward to your understanding ... people on this forum are the best opinion leaders to promote stratego ... it is vital for the success of the new version to listen to them and act accordingly.
