Card Bugs / Problem after Golem draws Shepherd and Skulk
« on: 26 October 2017, 10:03:37 PM »
I've just had a game in which my opponent was unable to do anything after playing Shepherd and Skulk as a result of a Golem.  The game number was 8120244.  We're both going to post screenshots.

See game 6137525, decision 70.

This bug seems to be an odd corner case of a Buy phase with zero buys but with coins available to spend.

I had just bought a Villa so had been returned to my Action phase.  As I did not have any use for the $1, the actions or the buy from Villa, I didn't play it.  Instead I clicked on 'End Actions'.  I now found myself in the Buy phase with zero buys.  The 'End Turn' option was not available and the Buy phase did not immediately end.  I have two reasons to believe that that was because there were coins available to spend:
  • When I spent them, the phase and the turn did end.
  • If I reload the game at decision 69 and spend all the coins before buying Villa, the turn does end when I then click on 'End Actions'.

Game Log Issues / Inn description in log incorrect
« on: 28 July 2017, 07:55:44 AM »
Despite having played several games involving Inn, it was only yesterday that I noticed that the description that appears in the log when an Inn is bought is incorrect: it states that the selected Action cards are placed on the deck, whereas it should state that they are shuffled into the deck.

The recent change to ratings has had the effect of reducing the difference in ratings between a newcomer and the top of the leaderboard from about 45 to about 28.  That suggests to me that being matched against opponents now with a rating range of ±10 is equivalent to be matched against opponents previously with a rating range of about ±15, so I've adjusted my personal settings to match only against opponents with a rating range of ±8 (maybe ±7 would be more appropriate) in an attempt to be matched against roughly the same subset of potential players as before the change.

Does anyone see a flaw in my logic?

I've just had a game (5051932 against HK-ad3) during which my browser hung.  Having killed and restarted the browser I logged back in and found myself at the 'Matching' screen rather than back in the game that I had been playing.  My unfortunate opponent will have had to wait to force a resignation and will no doubt be under the false impression that I quit the game because I was losing.

I've had a browser hang in the past and have successfully reconnected to the game by killing the browser, restarting it and then logging in again, so I'm puzzled as to why it didn't work this time, though in his description of the latest release Stef referred to improvements when reconnecting.  Has one of those 'improvements' caused a problem?

By the way I'm dane-m when playing.

Feature Requests / Introduce ability to offer resignation
« on: 10 July 2017, 12:21:45 PM »
Some players dislike it when their opponent resigns in a lost position.  Against such players I do not want to resign.  Other players dislike being forced to play out a game that they are clearly going to win.  Against such players I am willing to resign, assuming of course that I'm of the opinion that they are clearly going to win, even though my natural inclination is to play the game out.

Given the above, when I'm in a clearly lost position I would like to be able to offer my resignation so that I don't have to guess which of the two categories my opponent is in.  Currently I can only do this via the chat, but this is only a viable option if I know I'm playing against someone who speaks English.  To get round this problem it would be nice if the UI were to include the ability to offer one's resignation.  Perhaps this could be done by extending the current 'Yes'/'No' choice after clicking on 'Resign' to 'Yes'/'Offer resignation'/'No'.

AI bugs / Bot hung after trashing an Overgrown Estate
« on: 06 July 2017, 08:00:33 AM »
Joining game #4941678 on oregon.

Code: [Select]
Turn 17 - Lord Rattington
L plays a Squire
L plays a Replace
  L trashes an Overgrown Estate
  L draws a card
Waiting for Lord Rattington

Closing my browser, reopening it and then logging back in then hung at 'Connected to gameserver'.

Closing my browser, reopening it and then clicking on 'Kick' gave the message 'Nothing to kick'.  It's the first time I've tried using 'Kick' so maybe I didn't do it right, but I had filled in my username and password before clicking on it.

I was reduced to closing my browser, reopening it, logging back in and then clicking on 'Cancel & Resign' while hung at 'Connected to gameserver'.  It's a bit much when a bot slow rolls to force a resignation.  :)
