Hey Steff + team,
I have been playing since goko and am a big fan of your client, definitely the best that I have seen. My user name is 'Morghas' I can never say no to a free 6 months, thanks for the offer, I would have done this anyway though.
For me the main thing about playing Dominion online is to play against real people in a competitive way and that seems to be your priority too, I always find games quickly, the server never drops out, the cards are implemented quickly after expansions, the game looks good and has a fairly intuitive layout. All this is good so if it never changed from now I would still pay for subscriptions.
The main thing that I sometimes have issues with is the log buttons, if decisions (like order of duration effects, or calling ratcatcher) could all be removed from the log and put into the play area that would be great. Also, I know all the spilt piles now, but it definitely feels bad that you cant see or discover what the second card in the split is until it is revealed so that would be a high priority for me.
It seems like bots are a high priority for you and I can see a lot of people have been asking for them in the forum but for me, I will hardly use them. I sometimes work on ships so the offline campaign mode would be good for that but its probably more healthy for me to stop playing dominion for a week or two... I guess I am saying that, I would use the campaigns but it may only be a handful of times for the hell of it, not often, I would also use the strong bot occasionally but again not that often.
Definitely would like to see the options to invite someone to a table, that would be more intuitive and less fiddly that what is currently available. A selective chat option on the main screen would be even better but I imagine that could be a much bigger task and maybe not used that much. I also would like to have tournament options. I love tournaments and organise a few real life tourneys a year. I dont know how much I would use the online tourney but having the option would excite me and I reckon I would use it.
Here is how I would rate things in order according to my wants:
10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
I would use/appreciate:
1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
3. A strong bot.
7. Option to invite specific players to your table
6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
4. Options for timed games
I wouldn't use but can see the value:
2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
I wouldnt use and and dont care about:
5. Options for undo settings
8. More translations (to what language?)
9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
10. Option to hide the log
11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
13. Downloadable game logs
14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
