Interface Issues / Re: Right click sometimes registers as left click

I see that mac right-click is mentioned in "Known interface problems", but those issues look different from this one.

Interface Issues / Right click sometimes registers as left click
« on: 13 April 2020, 01:06:14 AM »
This is a big problem when I'm in the buy phase and try to view the text of a card only to discover I just bought it. And then the game moves on to my opponents turn making it much more annoying to ask for an undo.

It only happens rarely, maybe 2% of the time.

I'm on a mac with a standard 3-button mouse, using the Firefox browser. None of my extensions look like they would be causing this. I never have this right click problem in any other programs, so I don't think it's a hardware or OS issue.

Also, sometimes when I right click a card, it fails to display the big version of the card, but it does lock up the rest of the interface until I click somewhere, as though it thought it was in the card display mode.

I played on dominion.games for years, and it never happened. I stopped for a year or so, and recently restarted, and that's when this issue started. The only change I made to my setup over the past year was switching from Chrome to Firefox. I have not tried switching back to Chrome.

I can work around it by not right-clicking when there's a chance that a left click might do something. But it's hard to remember to do that.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Feature Requests / Re: Add penalty for resign in Ranked games.

Dominion (3+ player) is a different matter. I don't like that there's a bigger penalty for resigning rather than losing, but I understand it.

There are two conflicting issues here. On the one hand, it can be very un-fun to keep playing a hopeless game where you can't do anything. And it can be a waste of everyone's time to finish out the game. On the other, we want to give the other player's a chance to sort out their rankings in the game.

Perhaps there should be a way for the whole table to agree to end the game early with a particular ranking of players. A relatively simple way to implement this would be an "Offer Resignation" button where the order in which people press it determines their ranking in the game. And once a player has pressed "Offer Resignation", add two new buttons: "Retract Resignation" and "Immediately Resign".

Dominion (2 player) is more like chess or go than Dota2.

In those games it is considered respectful to resign a game when you've clearly lost. If you play it out to the end, you're wasting both you and your opponent's time.

Dominion is still a little different in that randomness can play a role. So you need to set your own threshold where you resign at, say, < 2% chance of winning.

However, it seems like some people in the winning position like to play the game out anyway. One concession I'll make is it might be better etiquette to ask your opponent before resigning.

What I'd really like to know is how to tell an opponent that I would welcome their resignation without sounding like a jerk. Along the same vein, I sometimes get tunnel vision and don't notice how badly I'm losing. I would welcome someone politely pointing this out to me.
