Excellent point twasa - this doesn't just apply to bot games, but to casual games v human(s) as well.

No need to be sorry. It should just become "second nature" to write down the game number.Thanks Ingix. I was "AFK" at the time using just my wireless mouse and HDMI connected TV so it would've been a hassle to get up just to find a way to record stuff. I checked the wiki, and looked so closely I felt sure this was a bug someone else could easily reproduce, which is why I posted anyways, but I guess not. Maybe another interaction was involved. In future, won't post bug unless I have game #.
For example, in http://forum.shuffleit.nl/index.php?topic=1226 one known bug is "Some (maybe all) Cards that affect the player to your left/right go the wrong way". Since I almost exclusively play 2-player games, I would never have caught this bug, because in 2-player, left=right.I actually posted about that here: http://forum.shuffleit.nl/index.php?topic=1329.msg4188#msg4188 and from Watno's reply "I investigated this and the issue seems to be a confusion of left and right (on our side)." appear to have helped them discover this. (I noticed Treasure Hunter gaining(?) Silver was based on wrong player.)
If you get to the castle screen that means a match has been found and it's now being loaded. If it doesn't load that's indicative of a bug. If next time you want to report it it's helpful to copy whatever the browser console says (ctrl+shift+j/cmd+option+j), particularly the game number and the last few lines so we can see at what point it got stuck.Will do, thanks.
Ultimately, I believe that you have the right to play at a pace that is comfortable to you. Sometimes there will be situations that demand extra time to think/read cards, other times you will be able to play fast since there are no decisions needed.I both agree with and appreciate this remark. I see 2 main components to the pacing issue: 1. how long it takes to look at the initial board, analyze what card synergies/combos might exist and map out game strategy, and 2. how long it takes to make moves during the course of the game. IRL we always take a few minutes to look at a board before starting, although the social atmosphere, game setup, etc. make this a little easier to swallow than it would be for some OL, I guess. But still, taking time before making opening moves is completely different than regularly taking lots of time for later turns, IMHO. I don't think anyone should complain if someone hasn't made their 1st move in 30 seconds. If you don't like it then finish the game politely and move on to play someone else. Now repeatedly taking 2 minutes between moves thereafter is a more legitimate concern.
There are many reasons why online Dominion isn't very newbie-friendly, which I won't get intoI could understand why you don't want to get into it, but you've sure got me curious...
