I keep on trying to tell Mick. He won't listen.

 

He's indeed a really stubborn guy, who only joins the team to ruin Stratego, and to get money, and to make himself disliked by everyone, and he won't get his money anyway!

whats this rubbish ridiculous new art piece

just get outta here guys

 

We're not going anywhere for a while :)

 

 

You're right Jade, everyone leaves, and the $$ for the developers has gone because of their own stupid choices!

 

More people are joining in on the fun, every day! So that's not entirely true.

And two times as much people leave!

 

But I agree with Moghedien, If I say all my opinions, I'm quite near to be banned from this site!

Measuring your success by # of players is nonsense. Number of players only measures short term success.

 

Whether users stick around, and whether users like the app, and whether users choose to pay for the app is a whole other spectrum of measurement which MickM is completely ignoring. I'm speaking for myself here in that I would only pay an in-app purchase if I like the app I'm playing. I'm fairly sure nearly everyone feels the same way -- including children which is MickM's primary source of revenue.

 

MickM is saying the app is wildly successful with everyone because it has thousands of plays. But so did the old app! I am frustrated because MickM is clearly not transparent in his posts and isn't telling the full story. It is obvious no one is satisfied here with the new app but he will always choose to completely ignore us with no considerations or empathy towards our views.

If you cannot express your opinion in a respectable manner, then please refrain from sharing it.

Whether you want to go with what I say or what you want to believe, facts remain as they are :)

 

I had hoped that me answering your complaints and being open to discussion would show me (and us) respecting the established playerbase. But all I read is people misreading and misquoting, childish insults and people who think that a gamedeveloper should do everything all the players say, or is otherwise 'ignoring' the players.

 

I am very sorry you guys/gals feel this way, but as I have said multiple times (and Jur has stressed as well), we're gonna continue to work on the multiplayer, upgrading all platforms to the new version, while also tweaking and perfecting the new version.

This means that anything can happen, depending on how we develop.

If we believe a certain things will be better than others, we might do that. I cannot see into the future, but I do know that the entire team is determined to give Stratego all the love it deserves.

 

I hope me commenting here on this forum proves that we care.

Really... if we did not care, we could've closed the forum and never replied here ;) (but we don't)

Mick, I have nothing against you personally (I do not even know you). If you feel insulted then I am sorry for that. But I keep having the feeling that you do not care for our opinions, I cannot help that. In my opinion your answers to our complaints are proving that you have a plan and will not deviate from it. In that case there is no point for us trying to expect anything from you or the developers. We are disappointed, that is all. I am not angry and I do not wish you any incurable diseases trust me. In your quote above you practically admit that you will continue your own way and (in my opinion) change the game forever (in a child's game). I admit that I have played with the new app, even bought 600 battle coins to buy the features I like. But I cannot play seriously with it, I am sorry. It remains an app that is not built for serious stratego play. And one final advice: quit the smileys Mick, that infuriates me sometimes because it is proving in my opinion that you are not taking things seriously. Good evening...

If you wish to continue to misread my genuity and convert them into something else, you are free to do so...

But do know that this is not what I am saying.

I've just casted the 42th vote to support the old version... not that I am any judge here as I haven't played any apps but the pics I have seen of them are enough for me to support the old version, let alone the reviews I've read.

Honestly, all the developers had to do was improve upon aspects of the old app. 

 

Everything was there - of course, the chasing rule and anti-chase needed to be addressed, but there was enough for infinite enjoyment. 

 

As far as the success of the "new app," when people see me playing they ask me when this "video game" was made.

 

I laugh inwardly. You idiots! This is a board game. 

 

Sadly, the new app makes it appear as if it's a video game after all (and a bad one at that). 


Terror made me cruel.
