it means i could shuffle all day if i have the material advantage (in # of pieces), because if its a draw, i win. And it puts pressure on my opponent to make big risks to defend himself from an automatic drawn-loss.
it'll change stratego into a game of who can shuffle and defend all their pieces the most optimally. rather than a game of who can find the flag first
Given the uproar, TC are reviewing this topic and will publicise our decision shortly.
