General Discussion / Re: Early "gg" - Utterly minor gripe!
« on: 29 March 2018, 08:12:39 PM »
If I want to play another game with that same person, then I of course have to stay until the game ends.  Usually I'll say gg in the lobby afterward then hit ready.  Sometimes if I know I've lost, I will say gg before their turn ends and resign.  I don't find an early gg>resign rude in any way.  If someone really wanted to play out their turn but I resigned before they could, too bad.  Take your W and be happy. 

Now if I know that I am going to win and I say gg pre-emptively before my turn begins, or during the other players turn, I can see how that could be construed as rude.  I don't find it rude, but I also don't do it because it can understandably be taken as an offensive gesture.

This is the internet.  You can't know someone's intent based off of a simple "gg" or leaving the game immediately after it ends.  It could be they have limited time to play so they are rushing to the next game or they simply don't want to communicate with the person they just lost to or beat, or a thousand other reasons. 

The only variable of which you have control is yourself.  You can create your own code of ethics ie. "always say gg, thanks for the game" or whatever.  But don't expect the same from everyone else.  Better yet, don't expect ANYTHING from anyone else.  Live your life, enjoy the game (or don't) and consider the fact that the internet is a lot different than a table and cards.

On topic:  When I say gg early and leave immediately, it's because I assume my opponent sees that they have the victory.  (16 coins, 2 buys and 2 province remaining for example).  So I say gg and leave because I already know the result and I consider my time valuable.  If my opponent takes offense, too bad!  I am already starting my next game while they wallow in their insecurity.

Sometimes I will stay and exchange pleasantries because I'm in the mood for it.  Usually when it was a very close game and well played on both sides.

Same for me.  "Server connection was closed or could not be established."

FYI the person is almost certainly on the forums.  Insulting them emboldens them and encourages them to continue.  Especially if it's from you, Stef.  It lets them know that what they are doing is working.  The bigger the reaction, the better for them.  Also it might be a guy or gal, or even multiple people and/or bots we don't know.

Unfortunately, it's not new.  The current strategy for dealing with it is to blacklist them, and report them to a moderator via PM.  Posting about it on the forums may be futile since all of the topics about slow-rollers seem to be getting removed. :-X

You are oozing with good sportsmanship.  It actually makes me mad a little.  Nevertheless, I like your idea.

« on: 12 July 2017, 08:07:52 AM »
Paying for a subscription entitles you to that subscription unless you break the law or violate a ToS.  Clearly there is a ToS that if broken warrants a ban even for paying users.  If there was no ToS however, I think it's more of a grey area and banning might be illegal.  As much as we wish we could hold internet trolls to the same standards as bar patrons, it's simply not the case.

General Discussion / Re: Undoing
« on: 06 July 2017, 09:14:04 PM »
Just to clarify, you're saying the person denying an undo is at fault for taking away their opponent's fun?  I don't follow that logic.  In the event that an undo is denied, %100 of the fault and responsibility lies on the person requesting the undo and they frankly need to suck it up.  I agree with your first point that making some undo's automatic would be great as long as new info hasn't been revealed (and as long as it doesn't reset the 5 minute per action timer).

Good guess, not banned though (yet).  I was just curious actually and bored at work.  Looks like the ducks are in a row.

Just a thought.  If somebody pays a subscription and subsequently get banned, do they have a case for legal action?  Most gaming companies have a ToS (Terms of Service) agreement that if broken, may result in a legal ban.  I don't remember signing any ToS for this game.  Let's say I pay, then I slow-roll, then I get banned.  Am I entitled to my money back?  Have my rights been violated?

My thoughts on undo:

1) I like it as a feature.  Misclicks happen.

2) Each request is just that, a request. You are at the whim of the other player if you are asking for an undo.  You had 5 minutes to plan out each action, it's your fault that you misplayed.  May your opponent have mercy on your soul!  I don't think I have ever denied an undo, but if someone denied me one I wouldn't blame them, I'd blame myself.
