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

 

 

 

Reminds me of some Greek politicians  :)

I think I've been more than friendly.

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

 

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

1. LOL Hahahahahaha hilarious.

2. Okay. " :) " I'm sure you'll be smiling when all your players leave....

@MickM

 

Αbout who can not play the new version i speak ironically because most of them are older adults and I believe they have reason(skype-help players,in the new app is not easy to have multiple accounts) and react this way for the new version.

personally I do not mind the new version because it is addressed to young ages and is the only way to be developed the game.

 

But it would be good to have both versions and to select the player what he wants.

Thank you

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.

I am sorry but you are totally clueless with this issue and looks very bad to accuse all these people who wrote in this topic that they prefer the old version for the reasons you mention in your post.

Actually the new version doesn't help to this direction because 

1. New version Is still free . Battle coins are needed only to buy some extra features. This means that the problem with multiple accounts  still exist

2. Outside help during the games (via skype or sharing accounts / play against more than one player at the same time) can not be prevented with any version. The only serious attempt towards this direction can be made with strict rules like those in WCO , but this can happen only during tournaments, not for simple random daily games.

 

So my personal advice to you is this:

Before you post something please be sure that you have idea about what is discussed. If your English are not enough to understand what is the discussed topic,  it is better to stay out

Parallellograms are slanted (at an angle), rectangles are not.

I have not played the new version but i assumed that this is why you react because you are talking about clean ranking and tournaments and have 10 and up secret accounts. I forgot!!!!! your main account is obvious.

yes, you are right my English is not very good but I have no problem to write and say what i believe.(
 

I'm sorry if you have problem, but I can not do anything about it. :( 

Aaaaaa for this when I write in Greek you do not speak?my english bothered now?

Do you not understand nor my Greek or you want to hide things and situations?

 

Μoreover, many players are not good nor the Greek, but you want to write when it suits you.

@Napoleon,moderators,tournament managers

 

Do you not like these proposals?
I will remind you continuity !!!

 

 

Θα μιλούσαμε για stratego με καθαρή βαθμολογική κατάταξη καθώς και για πιο αξιόπιστα τουρνουά αν ο κάθε ένας παίκτης είχε μόνο ένα λογαριασμό στο site.

 

Από την στιγμή που το site επιτρέπει την δημιουργία πολλών λογαριασμών και ο κάθε παίκτης έχει από 2 έως 102 λογαριασμούς(ελάχιστοι είναι οι ενεργοί παίκτες με έναν μόνο λογαριασμό) είναι πολύ, μα πολύ δύσκολο να έχουμε αξιόπιστη βαθμολογία καθώς και τουρνουά.

Βλέποντας τη λίστα σας, ο λόγος που επέμενα να αποσυρθώ από αυτή ήταν γιατί  "διυλίζεται τον κώνωπα και καταπίνετε την κάμιλον".

Κύριοι της GOSC και  Napoleon,fleur,Nick σας αναφέρω ότι καθαρή βαθμολογική κατάταξη και πιο αξιόπιστα τουρνουά θα λέγαμε ότι μπορούσαμε να επιτυχούμε:

 

1) Αν αντι για λίστα με "κύριους" λογαριασμούς είχατε δηλώσει ο καθένας σας όλους τους λογαριασμούς σας(λίστα παικτών με ολους τους λογαριασμούς τους).Τότε θα συμμετείχα ευχαρίστως.

 

2) Να μηδενίζονταν όλοι οι λογαριασμοί του παίκτη που θα απέκρυβε έστω και έναν λογαριασμό(αν γινότανε κάποια στιγμή αντιληπτό).

 

3) Να δίνονται στους υπεύθυνους με screenshot τα τελευταία 10 παιχνίδια του κάθε παίκτη που θέλει να συμμετέχει στην καθαρή βαθμολογική κατάταξη(θα προβλημάτιζε αρκετά αυτόν που ήθελε να παίξει με δύο δικους του λογαριασμούς -σε στημένο παιχνίδι- για να ανεβάσει το έναν από αυτούς).Είναι πάρα πολύ εύκολο στην πράξη(screenshot).

 

4) Στα τουρνουά παίκτες που αποκαλύπτεται ότι παίζουν από την ίδια IP, θα έπρεπε να αποκλείονται και να τημωρούνται(παίκτες από το ίδιο σπίτι,παίκτες που παίζουν από το ίδιο internet cafe καθώς και αν υπάρχουν παίκτες από το ίδιο χωριό ή μικρή σε πληθυσμό περιοχή και είναι γνωστό, θα έπρεπε να παίζουν τα παιχνίδια με τους αντιπάλους τους τις ίδιες μέρες και ώρες για μεγαλύτερη αξιοπιστία ).

 

Χωρίς την εφαρμογή των  παραπάνω δεν είμαι σε θέση να αναγνωρισώ αλλά ούτε να συμμετέχω σε καμία λίστα "κύριων" λογαριασμών,σε καμιά λίστα που δήθεν καθαρίζει την βαθμολογική κατάταξη των παικτών(Napoleon,Fleur,Nick) και στα τουρνουά(cflag,KARAISKAKIS,Optician,Nortrom,Morx).

 

Προσπαθείτε δήθεν να υπάρχει αξιοπιστία στα τουρνουά και στην καταταξη αλλά στο μέτρο που θέλετε και σας βολευει ενω γνωρίζεται τα αληθινά προβλήματα ποια ειναι και αδιαφορείτε.

 

Μέχρι να συμβούν αλλαγές στο site(Admin,moderators,Tournament Managers) σχετικά με τα παραπάνω αρκούμαι να διασκεδάζω παίζοντας αυτό το όμορφο παιχνίδι που λέγεται stratego.

 

 

Σας ευχαριστώ.

Mick,

 

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with 2 pair of opposite, equal and parallel sides.

 

Thus all rectangles are parallelograms but not all parallelograms are rectangles.

 

Thank you from my 6th grade math teacher.

 

Regards,

 

Scott

I agree with Mick ... these new pieces look more like trapeze than parallelograms

Rectangle being, as Scottrussia correctly said, a particular parallelogram

Maybe we shall go for cubes?
If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

I was never using the old app much (simply because I prefer playing on the way bigger computer screen with a mouse) but the new one sure doesn't look better... Do you also get the graveyards shown right next to the board when you play on a smartphone? If that is the case then the pieces would get so small that you wouldn't be able to click them with a fingertip (not a human one at least). In the old app the graveyards are hidden behind a button so the full smartphone screen area is used by the board and you can actually select one of the pieces without too much difficulty. The piece art in the first picture shown in Aris' post looks exactly the same as the piece art in the old app like I have set it, so that would still be ok with me.

We are serious who bothers if is squares or rectangles the pieces?

People did a new version for some reason whether we like it or not we like it.

Very positive move and wish to have and continue.

 

Thank you Mick and Lonello

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.

@Mick

About these big cards appearing after each battle ?

These big cards and babyish. I feel like we're doing addition flash cards in pre-school. "What's one plus one, class?"
