Not sure what I did but now when I log in and try to do anything I get an error message saying "you need to be logged in." Anyone else had this happen?

This is a strange state where your client (browser) thinks you're logged in but the server thinks you're not. It should not happen at all, but when it does... refreshing your page should fix it?

I'm from Russia, using Google Chrome browser and tried another ones... Nothing changed recently.

According to our Russian translator actually something has changed. Apparently your government closed up large parts of the internet recently. It seems as though you have to use a VPN now if you still want to play dominion :(

Alas the trend is that bullies are free to behave the way they want.

You are though.

Anyone else getting this message? I guess I need to renew my subscription today, but can't, as I'm getting a message saying "The store service is currently down. Sorry for the inconvenience."

Anyone have any more info about this, or when it will be back up?

It's back up now. And again, sorry for the inconvenience.

Ok, that's not his job. But that would be mods' one.
Either mods declare that insulting is allowed, or mods ban all people that do not abide strictly to the rules.
The two cannot exist simultaneously.

I don't have a system or the time to know about every single instance of this. I'm a volunteer. Right now, users can simply blacklist people they don't want to play with. It isn't a perfect system but the system does work. My advice is not to worry about awful people being awful to others when you can put them in your personal blacklist and never see them again.

Well, this actually means you wash your hands of it.
Being paid or not is not a good reason to refuse to bear a responsability.

Or, easier, you are communicating that, yes, users are able to cuss or use bad words, or insult, and they will stay on unbanned, the worst case scenario is they lose the chance to face again that one player.
But if I was to insult someone, not playing against him anymore would be the lesser of my problems. Probably I would blacklist myself that user first, because if I am lead to insult someone, surely I won't like playing again with him.

That said, the villain wins in this scenario. Which I don't like much. Moreover considering people is PAYING ACTUAL MONEY to play this game. And when one pays, one demands.

Please leave jsh alone. He is doing a great job, I'm grateful for whatever he does. He is dealing with plenty of shit already as a mod.

The fact that not everyone violating a rule gets immediately banned or punished in some way does not imply the rules doesn't exist, nor does that make the system invalid. In fact, that is what makes the system work as a whole. There are plenty of examples of countries that tried to enforce every rule on all its citizens. I wouldn't want to live in one.

There is no villain 'winning' in this scenario. People yelling in chat are generally speaking very frustrated individuals with more problems IRL then you are willing to imagine. I don't envy them. Yes there is a line they can cross and then they get banned.

My advice to you, assuming you're one of the nice people that sometimes encounter a frustrated individual, is to try to spend as little time with them as possible. Blacklist & move on works very well for that. Any time you spend on this forum or anywhere else typing up some report is only adding to your own frustration. If they really cross a line you can report and who knows maybe they get banned. But another persons pain or punishment will never make you truly happy. And maybe before you speak about bearing responsibility and people paying actual money you should reevaluate your own situation.

In the end this is the internet and you'll sometimes encounter someone you'd rather not. Speaking from my personal experience, the dominion community is doing way better then the average community out there. Yesterday I played ~30 games against ~20 different opponents without a single incident.

Version 1.3.13

This version contains the Kingdom Viewer, as originally developed by IceHawk78 in his "King's Courtier" Chrome plugin.

This feature is designed to help those of us who sometimes forget card text on non-kingdom cards or don't remember exactly what card is the bottom half of a split pile. It also allows you to read through all the Boons, Hexes and/or States that are in use.

On the top right where it used to say "trash | undo | resign" you'll now find a 4th button "Kingdom". I suggest you just click it and see what happens. You can go back to the regular view by clicking "Play Area".

Many thanks to Icehawk for building this and to Ingix for the finishing touch.

Card Texts problems / Re: Dutch language

Hey everyone,

I was just wondering of the dutch language is going to be available in the future?

anyone know?

Dag duifje,

Would you be interested in doing/entering the translations yourself?
I am Dutch myself so obviously I could do it but I don't consider it a priority.
Every Dutch player I know also speaks English. The only reason I have to do it now would be my two nieces.

If you are interested please let me know.

Sorry about that - development and communication has been slower the last months.

You can expect a release this week with the "Kingdom Viewer" (originally developed by IceHawk as a plugin and now integrated in the client)

In the meanwhile, I'm working on redoing the concept of "tables & seats" (which will make it easier to invite friends, make private tables and some more)

I notice in 3 player games when someone quits or gets 'replaced' the game becomes 'unrated'. Why? people quit all the time when they are losing and it is frustrating. Not sure if this happens with 2 player or not since it auto goes to the score screen.

It is also frustrating that when in a 3 player game and you get booted (in my scenario here it is computer/internet issues) and then you can't get back in. I think there should be a way you can replace a bot if it took your place...maybe like 3 times max to prevent slow rollers or something. PLEASE do something about this.

3 player rated game: when someone resigns the rated part is over. The remaining players both win, the leaving player loses extra to compensate for the two winners (that person loses more rating then when he or she would stay and end last). The remaining players will finish the game for fun with a bot, but the conditions are now so different that it doesn't count anymore.

2 player rated game: resigning is counted the same as losing. The remaining player can finish the game with a bot if he or she so desires, but that will also be unrated.

You do not get booted from a game for having internet issues, unless those issues continue for >4 minutes. At some point we'll have to consider the fun of the remaining players too.

no, it's not frowned upon. I want all of this. The only problem I have with it is that it's work to build it.

This is handled correctly online. (AFAIK)
You say that DO seems to think you get a curse, but do you have a sample game to back that up?
Because I think you don't get the curse online.

What really helps in these cases is if you...
a) notice the situation in a game or
b) recreate the situation against a bot
... and then write down the game number and maybe the turn or decision where you think something goes wrong. That way someone else can load that game and see exactly what DO does and what you mean.

General Discussion / Re: ACCOUNT DELETED
« on: 01 March 2018, 02:31:36 PM »
I'm sorry I missed your original request. I just deleted your email and password from the database, which means your account is now "deceased". I cannot completely remove every trace of the account, because you played rated games against other people and I don't want to retroactively remove those from their rating. It also means nobody can now claim your old username and pretend to be you. I hope this satisfies your request.

kind regards,

Three problems introduced in 1.3.12 are now fixed:
  • In some (most) browsers card texts in your opponents hand/discard were blanked out
  • Surface devices stopped registering clicks (in some cases)
  • The Japanese log sometimes contained the text [Object object]

Also fixed: the 'upgrade to nocturne' option in the store didn't work when you were close to running out of your current subscription (< 1 month). In the new version it will suggest you extend your subscription to 30 days from now.
