Sorry for the disappointment for your son. :(

Each rules change makes people sad first becasue they first learn of the good things they did that no longer work. It takes time to realize all the good things that work now but didn't before, like inheriting an Encampment or Experiment is much better now.

To explain why inheriting Highways is no longer 'nice', look at the cards texts. When you bought an Inheritance, we have the following effects on Estate (from Inheritance):

Quote
During your turns, Estates are also Actions with "Play the card with your Estate token, leaving it there."

And of course Highway reads:
Quote
+1 Card/+1 Action
----
While this is in play, cards cost less than $1, but not less than $0.

The key sentence is on Estate, it plays the Highway you've set aside when you bought Inheritance, it doesn't gain the abilities (as it did before the errata) of the Highway. In this way, it has been made to work similar to cards like Necromancer (from Nocturne) or Captain (a promotional card).

Since the Highway played never leaves the set aside zone, it never is in play. So its below-the-line ability never activates, because it never is in play!

The same is true for similar cards with below-the-line effects, like Haggler.

Of course that's not ok behaviour. While some players do get annoyed when their opponent isn't playing as fast as they wish (either because of thinking, or connection problems or something else), it's totally not OK to call your opponent names like this.

Is there a way now to remember what you have played with a BoM or an Overlord?
No, you'd have to look that up in the log.

if you play Disciple and BoM or Overlord now you get a BoM or an Overlord instead of the card you emulate?

Correct. Those cards no longer shapeshift into a card, they play that card now and stays themselves the whole time.

Support / Re: Automatch Queue
« on: 10 October 2019, 11:28:46 PM »
Hi the_louse,

there was a similar problem stated recently. Do you want to join the 2-player or the 3-player queue?

You are right, adding "per player" would make it more clear that the intent is to have it used once per game per player.

Sub-question: As usual, the correct way to think about this is that while you Possess an opponent, all that is done is done by that opponent. So they bought Inheritance and used it an a crappy card. That has nothing to do with you. If you haven't yet, you can buy Inhertance and use it on the really good card.

Feature Requests / Re: Add penalty for resign in Ranked games.
« on: 07 October 2019, 09:07:44 AM »
If you are talking a 2-player game, then the penalty is simply a loss by the resigning player (and a win by the other player). That has the usual ratings consequences. I'm not sure what more you would want.

In 3-player games, the penalty is harsher, the ratings loss by the resigning players is magnified, because it makes it impossible to get an accurate result between the remaining players.

Dota 2 is a team game, so if you quit, you are actively hurting your own team mates. In Dominion, there are no team mates, you hurt yourself only in 2-player games, and as I explained, you get a harcher penalty then just placing third in a 3-player game.

The problem with this approch is simply that it would make slow playing that much easier. You just ask again and again for the same undo and if that resets your timer, you can stall indefinately.

Card Bugs / Re: Crown auto-play no longer works
« on: 05 October 2019, 11:46:06 AM »
Peddler counts Action cards in play, not "Actions" that allow you to play Action cards. So in that sense calling Coin of the Realm doesn't help you directly. And Peddler will count a Crown in play as an Action card, no matter when it was played.

11
I seriouisly doubt that any change took place, usually that's announced in a small post.

Also, you can't that easly determine the number of players waiting for a rated 3 player game, because the #looking for practice games also includes those looking for 2-player practice games.

Did you maybe loose or win much in recent days? That may have affected your rating and drove either your 'usual opponents' out of your accepected range or vice versa.

General Discussion / Re: Sadly reporting another player: cj4
« on: 05 October 2019, 09:14:36 AM »
I know it sucks, but the best advise is to resign the game, blacklist that player and move on.
Those players don't want you to loose. They want you to suffer. I think the general term for that in games is griefers.

I have a good guess why that account name is cj4. They were banned 3 times before. Banning an account is easy. Banning a player is hard, because it takes them 5 minutes to make a new account and start over. The only thing bound to an account is an email address, which is not a scarce resource, because it is not used again.

General Discussion / Re: Reporting a Player - Ickedettewa
« on: 05 October 2019, 09:07:24 AM »
I am confused but may be you can help clarify this. If I buy a subscription and pay some amount (lets say monthly for now) and one of the moderator blocks me for being out of the line, even though I can create another account yes, but wouldnt I lose the initial amount I paid for my sub?

Yes, you would loose your paid amount for the banned account. But all indications point to the strong assumption that all these harassers and slow players are not players with a subscription.

Just a few days ago an account was banned after several complaints, then a yesterday I saw new complaints about a similarly named account. Chances are that it is the same person behind, and that it took them less time to make that new account and start again than us discussing it.

Besides any money paid (which they haven't), the only tangible thing you get playing here is your rating. I think they don't care much about it, so they have no problem starting over.

Yes, gagaganga has been banned and that new account may belong to the same person.

Card Bugs / Re: Crown auto-play no longer works
« on: 03 October 2019, 09:25:45 AM »
Thanks for the report, JW!

I can't however reproduce your problem. In a few test games the autoplay worked for me the moment I had only Crowns in hand + non-Actions.

Please check first if the autoplay is actually set to "smart ask" for the Crown. Maybe you indadvertatly changed it when you wanted to change a different option.

There are a few situations where the autoplay doesn't work for technical reasons, but they are not due to the latest update:

1) If you have Villagers, the game thinks you might want to convert them to Actions, so doesn't auto-advance to the buy phase

2) If you have played Actions this turn and have a Coin of the Realm on the Tavern mat, the option to call the Coin will always be present. The Crown autoplay will not work, thinking the player might want to call the Coin.

If it's neither of those cases, then it looks like it's a bug, but probably only happening in specific situations. If you rememeber with whom you played or even the game number that could help finding the issue.
