Nah, I kind of disagree.

The obvious optimal strategy for the other person is simply to buy nothing until they happen to luck in to and get and $8 hand with the deck they currently have.

Do you really want to encourage that play? Sitting there for shuffle after shuffle being like nope, got $7, gotta pass five more turns for my gold to come around and hopefully collide...

I don't think it was a brain-fart, it was a metagame tradeoff - they're not willing to wait for hours being bored until they get the shuffle luck they need to finish the game, so they risk losing to just get the game over with. Same kind of decision as just resigning if someone is slow-playing you at a rate of one copper per minute. There's no lesson for someone to learn here. I'd have probably done the same, and then blocked the person who did that to me.

Lol "I don't want to play with people playing the correct strategy" in other words. If you don't like the strategies Wall encourages, just add it to your ban list. There is nothing scummy about waiting for a good hand in this situation. I would be disappointed if my opponent played poorly here.

I'm not going to parse every case here, but one general thing you should know is that actions gained on an opponent's turn don't do anything. You can't bank them for your own turn either.

The only way to play the way you want to currently is to open tables, generate random sets the way you want with the expansion buttons and hope people join to play. You can try rated or unrated. Getting it the way you want on automatch probably isn't happening consistently.

Support / Re: Dominion Victory Point Default Setting Suggestion
« on: 02 April 2020, 04:33:05 PM »
Currently when you create a game, the default for "Show VC Counter" is checked by default.
It makes a better game if the victory points are not shown. It makes it like the table game where you do not know how many points you or an opponent has at any given time.

To ultimately make it like the table game, victory token points are known, but victory card points are not.

I would stop playing Dominion online without the point counter. It's way different from playing in person. Someone can easily track points on paper or in a notepad program; it's always possible to know the score. The point counter makes things fair and prevents people taking ages to make decisions.

I have never explained why I was kicking somebody. You could if you wanted to.

It's probably people waiting on their friends. Use the auto match feature to find games more easily. The advanced tab has better options.

They have been overloaded due to the quarantine and the new expansion release.

Platinum and Colony are from the Prosperity expansion. You're meant to add them to the kingdom based on some percentage of Prosperity cards appearing in the kingdom; I'm not sure what method dominion.games uses. You can specify if you want them or not when you create a game via table (in Advanced Options probably). Similarly, the Shelters from Dark Ages replace Estates in a certain percentage of kingdoms.

Hey you can't just change the rules because you don't like the answer, dude.

You can pretty easily get infinite VP. One way to lock the bot would be to use a masq cutpurse pin to eliminate their deck and then tax copper. Then just play a bunch of monuments or whatever.

I am often on the other side of the fence, watching opponents who have lost miserably and know it spend ten minutes clicking buttons pointlessly, sometimes tabbing out while they do it. Knowing when to resign will make your online play experience much more fun. One of my biggest pet peeves is when players spend ages and then just buy the last province while behind anyway. If you're gonna take the time, at least try to win!

" If they restart, they will have to work at it to get a 53 rating again."

Precisely the problem. This is their ninth sadeas account, and they had many before. Blacklist the one that exists and you won't see them again.

so currently I am too stuck with this player in the same game (#31298057)
I am little confused as to why the mods here are not taking these complaints seriously? Is it because he paid for the cards? Because if a player has a paid subscription, ideally he should be afraid to pull up nonsense like this, but lack of moderation do make them more confident that what they are doing is okay. I have joined online platform 2 months ago and I wanted to get a feel of the game before committing financially, and I dont think its an entitlement from a paid user to ask to take swift action against such players. Is it?

The complaints are taken seriously, but there seriously isn't much we can do, since people can just start new accounts and harass the same users over and over again. I know because I have seen it happen repeatedly.

At some point, hopefully there are better moderation tools. Until then, I highly recommend just blacklisting problem users. Getting them banned is not actually going to help, and could in fact do the opposite.

Join the dominion discord server and you can ask people about kingdoms you played and see what insights they might have.
