hey  stratego enthusiasts,

 

I started playing here in January 2013 and I have to say my opponents are stronger than a few months ago. As I love to play strong opponents, I have to  say this site is getting better and better.

How many players do we have here right now?

Over 70,000 accounts have at least one game recorded.  However, I think a more relevant number is how many players have at least a certain level of rating points.  Currently, there are 3567 accounts with a rating of 200 or more, 1627 with a rating of 300 or more, and 758 with a 400 rating or higher.

You know what also is getting stronger? The ability to be RANDOMLY DISCONNECTED in the middle of winning positions. Yay.

I am from nowhere.

I play here since this site was built up, I guess march-april last year and I have to say back then I was only afraid from Spiff, Cotton, Trickz and KingTubby, back then those guys ruled this site and now even they have problems to maintain their rank (no offense guys  ;) ) but yeah, the level now in comparison with last year is highly increased.

Yo Jones,

 

Thanks for the compliment but on the board I'm not a dominant kid.

I'm not on top of the list, It's quite the opposite, sjit...

cuz' a lot of people play this game much harder than Trickz!

Look at the names, the higher the rate, the smarter he is

and some players I fear so much in this war, it is sick...

that I decide to go hard in my crib, the start to get pissed

so I'm charging the priks with my marsh in a blitz! :D

The competition is hard in this bitsj...

and the more you climb the ladder,

the more you'll think about the fact that larger exists!

Some players have skills that go way beyond this universe, they will slaughter me big

and compared to them my skills are still stuck on a Martian trip. :(

Satan, Punish, Nortrom,...those guys are the real stars of this sjit

and compared to them I feel retarded a bit.

I consider myself subtop, nothing special, I'm not a master in this,

I have decent working skills, they aren't dismissed

but I'm by far in the sjit when I'm in a war with a bitsj,

rated 800 or more so I have to beg the gods for a gift!

Compared to them,...my skills hardly exist and the bars that I spit

are just to point out that I don't father the scene, I'm not the fathering Trickz. ;)

I don't have the sharpness, my sharpening's sjit

and you gotta exploit that in order to get the art of the wins! ;)

when i first got on this site you were not even allowed to play multiplayer games you could only play the CPU . You could choose 10 piece set up there was also a 20 piece game and the 40 piece game . i have to say in the last 3 months alot of bugs and glitches were taken care of i haven't been kicked off for weeks and even the last time i did get kicked off i was able to get back into the game

I look foward to the first golden player, because the ranks are getting more up and more players take part of the site in the heat of the battle....

Think you have to wait a long time before that happens. With the used system it is very difficult to make it to the gold league and impossible to reach platinum.

Within a few months the first silver player will get a N/A ranking in the silvers and to reach the bronze leagueladder you will need at least 500 points. 

 

Lucky.


The secret of happiness is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you should do.

It's impossible to become gold in this way.

For a gold marshall you need at least 1200 points.

So that means a winning streak of near 100 procent and if not, you have to double, triple or quadrupe your wins to compensate for your losses.  Impossible :)

I don't think it is impossible, what Lucky says is mostly right. It takes lote of time. I will come back if there are N/A silver players. 

Or SatanNL will take a chance to get higher. He is now 1011..

And didn't you mean silver marshal?  ^_^  

Because a golden marshal.. like 12000 points :o

Actually I ment a gold spy.....my mistake :)

That's at least 1201 points.

Gold marshall is really impossible....cuz' the higher you climb the more points you need for the next rank.

But the gap between gold spy and gold marshall is at least 500 points if not more....

And we don't even mention of how many points it would take to become a platinum marshall,....

 

It's just impossible.

 

Maybe it's possible to have a goldmember one day but to stay there or let alone climb up is almost impossible.

With this rating system, I think the highest humanly achieved rate would be 1200 or something.

Maybe something more, maybe something less but that's about it........

There is just no way that a player has a 99 percent winning streak out of 500 games or more.

And yet that is the standard if you don't wanna fall down from the gold ladder.

Yo, the chance of someone becoming a platinum marsh?

That's the same like the lotto, claming that you have the maximum odds!

You can have all the stratagem thoughts for planning a charge

but attacking his pawns means that you sometimes will crash in his bombs!

On this site there are masterin' stars, craftin' the art

by managing wars that's way beyond every noob can imagine, it's hard...

And it demands to be smart

but it's annoying cuz' they know from which planet you are

while you think you play against an advanced alien who lives in a mansion on Mars! :D

 

But even that alien can't handle the ups and downs.

Satan may have the fukkin' crown and almost nobody can punch him down

but compared to a platinum marsh he's lunch for now

and his stats would suk against someone who's got the percentage of hundred, wow!

Those guys don't exist,...unless they can see your board and attack you with stunning routes

and if they cheat, then guns aloud

so fire at will and take those fokkin' chumpies out! :D

I agree.  Under the current system we will never have any Platinum players and a very small number of Gold’s, if any.  I think the developers assumed that we would eventually achieve the same ratings differentials as in the world of Chess.  However, in Chess a great player never loses to an average player, but this can happen in Stratego because of the element of luck in our game.  Thus, the rating difference between a great and an average player will naturally be less in Stratego than in Chess.  Also, we do not have the same huge number of players for our game.  Currently there are about 3600 Bronze players rated over 200, but just 155 Silver players and no Gold players.  Thus, by analogy, to have a chance at even one Platinum player we would need more than 155 Gold players, at least 3600 Silver Players and overall more than 23 times as many active players as the site currently has.  It might be time to start rethinking how the ratings boards should be structured.

Yo Strobe,

 

I rhyme it sick, you know I'm ready.

I'm flowin' steady, my show is heavy,

compare it to a tsunami so my flow is deathly! :D

It takes some time before I show up like loading spreadsheets

but once I'm there, there's no goin' back peepz

cuz' the zone will crash deep, your home will pass streets

like a rowing athlete and before you know it,...mad speed

so I'm flowin' fast G like the turbulence of exploding jetstreams! :D

I strike faster than the attacks of that poser Jet Li

with flowin' death schemes that'll slow your breathbreathe!

Compare it with a charging marsh who's in front of the lowest backpiece

and before you know it, your corps is on the bottom of the erosing Black or the holy Red Sea! :D

Believe me,...you rather want a fight with ferocious acne

than to cope with mad deeds of my flowattack, please...

cuz' I will rise much higher than a coast of ten feeth

so I own the death scenes with my posing threatstream! :D

 

 

You're right Strobe so that's me,...my devoted act's mean

and it's fokkin' hell if you face the Ark of Noah's wet dream! B)

Yo, I don't rhyme on a beat,....

I'm not an mc,...I just write as a geek

about the fights that we seek

on this site every week! :D

I rap about the stride in the league,

about a spy who is weak

and that I always start agressive for finding this piece!

I rap about the disguise of a three

who threatens your eight in the hope of finding a fee.

I'm not a guy from the streets who tries to repeat

that he's fly with the weed or that the crime will succeed,

I'm denying the deeds....

I'm just a nerd who's Stratego-addicted and I don't fokkin' want to shine on a beat! :D

This is just some entertainment for a site that is dead, nobody's replying for weeks,

the site is dyin', we need...

some guys in the scene who try to redeem

what the glitchers took away so we gotta fight the disease

that is paralyzin' the peeps who try to compete!

We need to find a way, a sort of device for a cheat

that if you try to be mean,.....all your signs on the screen suddenly blow up like in dynamite scenes! :D

The glitcher doesn't know what happens, starts to panic as a sick child in shortage of vitamine C.

It's time that they pay the price for the cheats!

And all I do is bullsjit about it with rhymes as I speak.

Actually,...with rhymes that I WRITE cuz' I'm not tryin' to be

a fighting mc with a life on the streets,...

I'm just a fokkin' dipsjit that raps about Stratego so the mic I don't need! :D

 

P'z

I know your rhymes don't need a beat.
But when you're rhyming I fill the needs.
Needs from my fantasy when I hear something good.
More of that, I'm in a good mood.
But ceep up rhyming on stratego.
If someone say: no place, I say no!
Stratego needs us with rhyming and fearness.
Without my beat, your rhyme makes thinks madness
Break the silence

I believe that whatever doesn't defeat you on Stratego, simply makes you.. immortal.
