From what Stef (game developer) told me, you boosted that account's ranking by winning (due to opponent's early resignation) many games against other accounts also controlled by you.

So you tried to shill your way up the ranking ladder, which got you banned.

Support / Re: where did my expansions go?

Can you check in your account tab that the game actually shows you having a full Gold subscription? People have been misremembering for how long they bouught a subscription (because for a time you could not buy farther into the future as end of 2019), or misinterpreting the date format. The account tab shows all expansions you have in color.

OTOH, similair complaints are popping up, so there is a good chance there is a problem. But I want to make sure this is not a false alarm (as happened too often in the past),

Card Bugs / Re: priest + pirate ship
« on: 07 December 2019, 09:31:40 PM »
Unfortuntately, this game doesn't load, so I can't check the specific interaction. But generally what you describeded as happening is correct.

Dominion cards are carefully worded such that if a card is trashed that belongs to the deck of a player, it is explicitely that player that formally does the trashing. For example, Pirate Ship reads

Quote
...each other player reveals the top 2 cards of their deck, trashes one of those Treasures that you choose,...

So, when playing Pirate Ship, while you are the player choosing which Treasure to trash (if there were 2 revealed), it is the other player that does the trashing.

Since Priest cares about who trashes the card:

Quote
... For the rest of this turn, when you trash a card, +$2.
(Emphasis mine)

your Pirate Ship atacking doesn't trigger your Priest's effect.

If your opponent resigns, they loose the game, and you win. And that result is used for the ranking, so you get your deserved win for ranking purposes (and they the loss).

Card Bugs / Re: Swamp Hag + Buying Mint Freezes Game
« on: 03 December 2019, 03:40:27 PM »
Thanks for the report, Vimmington!

I could find the game and it got stuck on me as well. I guess the 2 effects (Gain Curse due to opponent's Swamp Hag, trash Treasure from buying Mint) never made it to the UI, for whatever reasons. I'll try a few more combinations, to see if there is a more general problem.

ADDED: It seems that Mint is the problem. In other combinations (with Haggler or Talisman) it works, but doesn't show UI (only for Haggler/Talisman).

The answer to why the game sometimes asks you to pointlessly make a decision between 2 effects that doesn't matter is that the game is not smart enough to know that it doesn't matter. And each new expansion creates new ways for things to happen where it can matter, Innovation for example brought to light some bugs that simply couldn't be observed before because no effect existed that allowed a card to be played that soon after it was gained.

For future bug reports, it would be very welcome if you could include the game ID. It's printed at the top of the game log and the start of the game's chat. The latter you can also access during the end-of-game screen (maybe you need to scroll up a bit if you chatted).

The DomBot on Discord can find your latest games (that's what I used), but is restricted to games against human opponent's and AFAIK will not find your unrated games after a few days. It just immensely helps to look at the original game with the problem, because the cause may be something that is not apparent to the players (like a beginning player may have forgotten to mention the Swamp Hag).

As I said in the beginning, thanks again for the bug report!

Thanks to all commentors in this thread that gave thoughtful explanations and the reasoning behind their behavior and turned this into a thread that builds understanding of players' behavior. In this day and age on the internet it seems like the execption rather than the norm!

Well, the general attitude among many top players (of which Freaky is one) is that spectating in Dominion Online is an important part of the experience. You can watch other (probably better) players and see what they do.

It's much better to understand what they do when you actually see their hand, so you see the choices they make (say between 2 terminals when they only have 1 Action left).

Of course, this opens the door for potential fraud by allowing your opponent to see your hand. The general consensus seems to be that this doesn't happen (or rarely happens). Of course, there is no way to know for sure.

So, the resentment is (at least according to my understanding) that because you hide your hand, you deminish the spectator experience.

Freaky and crude are two "well known" players (that means they are very active in the discord community) and so it seems unlikely that they are the same person. Those players usually have alts (second or further accounts), but usually they are identifiable like "other X" or a number (if you ever see Ingix2, for example, that's also me).

Freaky is very opinionated, not shy to express them and also not shy to act on them. One of their opinions is that players should not hide their hands. It's very probable that crude and Freaky where in discord contact, so they got the hand-hiding info from crude.

As I said and as you experienced, Freaky will call you out for what they think you did wrong, and act upon it (put you on their ban list).

How to Play / Re: drwal = brak karty woodcreator
« on: 25 November 2019, 01:43:21 PM »
That would be from the first edition of the base game. In the second edition, some cards have been removed and replaced by other cards. One of the removed cards was Woodcutter.

The online game has only the second edition cards, so you'll not find Woodcutter here.

General Discussion / Re: How do I make a complaint about another player?
« on: 24 November 2019, 09:52:40 AM »
First, complaints are seen and acted upon, but usually not commented upon here. The general idea behind this is not to get those trolls even more  publicity. That doesn't meen that everybody that is mentioned will be immdediately banned, but some kind of investigation usually happens.

Second, there is a principal problem trying to ban a certain person, when accounts can be made for free. I agree that some solution would be nice, but generally banning an account has only the effect of the person behind it making a new account. That new account now on 0 blacklists, instead of of the XX for the old one.

Your complaint about the problem is valid, but in a mix of free players and paying players there is no simple solition that doesn't suddenly make the free players second class citizens, which, if I understand Stef correctly, is something he wants to avoid.

AI bugs / Re: Changling (in games with Tournament) bug?
« on: 22 November 2019, 07:53:36 PM »
Thanks for the report, Josh, but I cannot really make heads or tails of what the problem is.

In turn 8 of the game you mentioned, you had a starting hand of Copper, Gold, Changeling and 2x Estate. You bought a tournament that turn, you did not play one (because you had none in hand). I could gain a Copper or Gold from playing Changeling afterwards, without problem.

You write

Quote
I get why one can't use Changling to gain another Tournament...it's an odd card that leaves play early.

I think you mean Changeling (again) instead of Tournament, because the statement doesn't make sense for Tournament, it doesn't leave play early.

What I found in the log on turn 5 is this, which seems to include the log message you are referring to:

(mocked up Josh for clarity, starting hand is 2x Copper, Royal Seal, Changeling, Estate )
Turn 5 - Josh
J plays a Royal Seal and 2 Coppers. (+$4)
J buys and gains a Tournament.
  J reacts with a Royal Seal.
  J topdecks a card.
  Changeling can no longer move Tournament (it already moved).
J draws 2 Coppers, an Estate and 2 Tournaments.

So you bought the Tournament here, you did not play it. Because you had Royal Seal in play, you got the option to topdeck the Tournament. Because Tournament costs $3 or more, you also got the option to exchange it for a Changeling from its pile. I (and I assume you as well) were presented with both options (see the attached picture), and from the log it seems you chose the option to topdeck it. That results in 3 things that can be seen inn the log:

J reacts with a Royal Seal.
J topdecks a card.

Those first two are obvious. The third is

Changeling can no longer move Tournament (it already moved).

That means that after the Tournament was moved from your discard to the top of your deck, the triggered abilitiy of the Changelings in their pile could no longer move it, because they "lost track". That's what that line is meant to say. That has nothing to do with (later, in your Night phase) being able (or not) to play the Changeling from your hand (which I was able to do in my replay, to get another Copper or Royal Seal).

So from what I can gather, it seems to me that you were confused by the triggered ability of Changeling, that can be seen in the picture: it says Changeling and shows a little Tournament card.

In reality it represents the ability to exchange the just gained Tournament for a Changeling from its pile. I think you interpreted it as a shortcut for "Play the Changeling in my hand and choose to trash it for a Tournament".

That latter is not valid, as the Tournament is not in play. In addition, you play the Changeling in your hand just like any other card in your hand, by clicking on it.

General Discussion / Re: How to Just Play With a Friend
« on: 22 November 2019, 06:58:41 PM »
First, don't consider yourself a jerk for kicking players that join your table. It's nice that you think that way  :) , but as long as there is no really good way to start a table "in private", that's the accepted way to say "this table is not meant for you".

The best way I found to do what you want is to create a table, then immediately add a bot to it. That removes the table from the view of almost all players, because now they need to check "Show bot games" in the table view, which nobody who looks for a human opponent does.

So your friend sees that you are at a table in the matching tab and joins you. They are now a spectator to the match (because it is a 2-player table, and both spots are already taken, by you and the bot). Now your friend needs a little patience.

There is a "Play" button on the lower left of their table view, but they should not press it yet (otherwise things get screwed up). They need to wait until you, after seeing your friend as spectator at the table, have kicked the bot. They see that because the bot simply vanished from the players list. If they press the "Play" button now, they get added to the players list.

Now both of you need to press "Ready", maybe after chaning some more table option, and have fun playing.

Other Bugs / Re: 83 undos
« on: 22 November 2019, 12:48:33 AM »
Please not that it wants to undo -83 steps, so it actually wants to go 83 steps into the future. I'm pretty sure Possession being played is the culprit, the log gets decimated and this causes all kinds of problems.

In that case, hitting reload (CTRL-R) once you are again "yourself" should be the first action to do to avoid those bugs.

Thanks for the report, 71yeti. This one will also be fixed in the next update, pending some tests on a Mac.
