Dear Stratego Player,

After many years of playing together we come to the conclusion that we cannot support Stratego Multiplayer anymore from 1st of January 2021.

As you may know the industry will stop supporting Flash on the web by the end of this year.

The Stratego Multiplayer game is fully reliant on this technology so this has a huge impact. With the Stratego team we have spent a lot of time how to deal with these circumstances and we came to the conclusion that we cannot deliver the quality you as a player and a game like Stratego deserves. 

 

We will keep supporting the single player version on the App Stores and are investigating other possibilities to play the Stratego two player game online. We will inform you on any future updates on this matter.

Thank your continuing support of the Stratego board game!

[..]

 

Few questions:

 

1) Is the mobile/steam app still going to be up? as I believe this is independent from Flash

2) Is there any date/timeline for a new release?

3) What will happen to players' battlecoins?

 

Thanks.

It's extremely unfortunate that whoever has been placed in charge of running this game and website doesn't care enough to continue it on past the end of flash.

 

I'm very disappointed in all of you. 

 

"Great" end to a "great" year (2020)

I tried looking up the multiplayer version for android and all i found was the single player version.

Is the multiplayer version on steam ?

Why get mad at ellroy ? isn't he just the messenger in this case ? 

If not, then yes, anger toward him would be justified indeed.

I don’t know what position he has but he is definitely a representer so basically it’s the same

That this game site will cease because of some industry change that these guys can't / wont deal with. 

The entire online world will adapt and move on while we wait for a possible alternative. 

How much time and money and developers would it take to make the necessary changes ?

Probably not much. they could do it easily.

Here's hoping it will be updated to html5 and / or whatever other platform(s) are needed. 

Til then, I am godzilla angry. 

 

 

Yes...this is really inexcusable and I am sure there will be more fallout along these lines from the loyal Stratego online community.

Seems like it is going away, at least for a while, until they rewrite the site to be compatible with non flash browsers.

If you decide not to upgrade the website to a new platform, will you at least sell/outsource it to someone who is willing to fix it up and keep it going on a new platform?

 

It's a really fun game and website, there are some bugs in the current version for sure, but I think with some marketing it could be very popular. It's an interesting game that appeals to strategy, action, reading/bluffing, and memory and I think more gamers would become interested in the game if they understood this.

Damn straight. either maintain it for free or charge a fee, or sell it.

Since this game is ending, are the moderators still going to clamp down on people who share about alternatives to Stratego.com? It seems this is going to be the only option for those who still want to play Stratego (or something similar to Stratego).

 

Also, what will happen with the forum itself? There is a lot of information here that may be relevant to keep, especially regarding strategy, etc.

Here is a good question for Administration:
 

Just to be perfectly clear for those of us who don't fully understand these things, if the desktop version goes down, will that mean the new app will not work either?

Will this forum no longer function?

Site rules are site rules–this property still belongs to its owners and not us. Just because people feel let down, betrayed, offended, upset, frustrated, and perhaps rightly so, does not mean that anarchy should prevail. To dispense with law and order is a huge mistake...there is no justification for making the personal choice to do the wrong thing.

 

...alternatives to Stratego.com? It seems this is going to be the only option for those who still want to play Stratego (or something similar to Stratego).

 

Is your inbox on this site full? As far as I know, PMs still work so shoot me a message if you like, or send a message(s) where you think they might best serve your goals.
