Nice job closing threads that disagree with the new app agenda Mick. ;)

I closed it because there were already 2 topics adressing the same issue. One more would be a bit futile :)

Guys,

There is and a second positive (good) point : I bought 5400 battle coins with 12.99 ...... best prices !!!  while older.... it was 5400 battle coins with 39.99

I may change my vote (with a third positive point)

OK the race would be exciting once more as it would be 40-2 then :D :lol: :P

 

Who again was the other one PRO? Normally you would see how everyone voted, wouldn't you? I guess Fairway chose other options when making the poll?

 

Anyway, one thing I do like about this new app is the random set ups you may get.... but I agree with everyone, that should be optional!

 

But the randomness of it is nice if you have this 10 pieces variant, as 90% of the players simply put their flag in the corner, surrounded by bombs. No fun in that.

 

I would prefer the 8 pieces variant which is officially launched by Jumbo in the 90's and has a trademark: Stratego Barrage.


Lo

So you closed both? That's an even better solution.

Don't feed MickM. Very very very very very....... bad choice. Is cheap add removal and cheap battle coins worth pretty much obliterating quick games and have a 2-year-old toddler game instead of actual stratego? NO.

can only using random setup to play is nonsense, that's a game reserved for babies playing luckyhitratego

hey aris since u like to pay so much, let me suggest the best p2w format for this game for u

lets make use 100 battlecoins to buy each miner piece

200 battlecoins for sergeant

500 battlecoin for captain

1000 battlecoin for colonel

3000 for general

10000 for marshal

 

scouts are free. u are free to use any number per game.

 

 

what  a brilliant idea! makes tons of monies for the game developers! brand new game!   the age of Profits!

You have noticed in the new app when a piece captures the other then shown two cards ..... is joke !!! You do not see the pieces of your opponent for a few seconds virtually you do not have picture of the game.
This change (the first change or the most important change in my opinion) should  be needed on the new version, if it's not changed, then Guys ..... is impossible for any serious player to play on the new App !!!
 
Second change in my opinion should be about the geometric shape of the piece: This is parallelogram while it should be square (Simulation of the board game by Jumbo). We as stratego players always talking for squares and not for parallelograms. 
 
Mick, let me say that you have no experience as a stratego player. :)
This is why you're the only one who have voted in favor of the new app. ;)
With two changes who I mentioned perhaps the result of the poll would be different. :)

This cannot be done after a poll has been started. Only when it is originally set up. This would have been nice as a public poll, I agree.

I personally don't mind the big cards appearing after each battle. I can see this would bother people, though. I guess I've possibly played more with the new app than anyone else and they don't bother me so much anymore. What I would like to see fixed is the fact that the cards always show the movement of the victorious piece striking the losing piece...even though the losing piece may have been the one striking. It's a confusing thing because it doesn't accurately reflect what happened in the battle.

I understood that the new version created to attract the young people and to have the company gains.
There is the future(children) of the game and let us not want to understand some who are approaching 50 or 60 years.

Υou could also to create a second version such as the old.

 

The new version can not play:

 

Players who have thick fingers. :excl:

Players trembles their hand because have spent their years. -_-

Players who want to have multiple accounts but have known (main) only one(unless you want to pay). :rolleyes:

Players that play on the computer and like to have 5-1970 players from behind to help their. :ph34r: ...... :D .......???? :unsure:  :unsure:  :unsure:

Players who play the games other players from skype. :o

some of your reply to the forummers here are not even civil, full of sarcasm, full of unnecessary smileys like this  , and the last thing from u is a friendly ear

 

so that u know, lets dispense with the formalities here

 

I think I've been more than friendly.

I'm just asking people to respect the forum rules.

 

 

You have noticed in the new app when a piece captures the other then shown two cards ..... is joke !!! You do not see the pieces of your opponent for a few seconds virtually you do not have picture of the game.
This change (the first change or the most important change in my opinion) should  be needed on the new version, if it's not changed, then Guys ..... is impossible for any serious player to play on the new App !!!

Mick, let me say that you have no experience as a stratego player. 
This is why you're the only one who have voted in favor of the new app. 
With two changes who I mentioned perhaps the result of the poll would be different. 

 

 

I find it funny you claim to know about my personal history :) But seeing as you don't, I cannot take your reply serious...

Also, I appreciate the usage of fancy terms, but when you misuse them, it sounds a bit silly.

The current pieces are not parallellograms, the grid and the pieces are all squared.

 

 

This cannot be done after a poll has been started. Only when it is originally set up. This would have been nice as a public poll, I agree.

 

I've already explained why I voted yes :)

 

I understood that the new version created to attract the young people and to have the company gains.
There is the future(children) of the game and let us not want to understand some who are approaching 50 or 60 years.

Υou could also to create a second version such as the old.

Players who play the games other players from skype. :o

 

I am sorry you feel this way but let me clarify some things:

 

- The clickable units are much larger than the previous app, so it's actually better to play than the previous version

- Personal injury has nothing to do with the gamedevelopment. You cannot hold game companies responsible for things like arthritis

- This is kind of against the rules though

- This is kind of against the rules

- This could happen right?

 

To the new app and to Mick: Please change all the things we are saying or nobody will play on the new app and they will all go to gravon. Don't worry, there's no pressure whatsoever. " :) "

 

If this is what you want, then you are free to do so :)
