General Discussion / Apologies to Guilett
« on: 18 April 2018, 02:27:27 AM »
If you're on here, I am sorry for disconnecting mid-game when you were winning (and after talking about bad sportsmanship). My internet mysteriously went off. I do not cheat or stall people.

Thanks.

Ok. gotcha. thanks.

How do these people get banned? I mean, how does a moderator know when and who to ban? I got blacklisted supposedly three days ago for not granting undos. Am I in trouble because I'm ons someone's list? That seems abusable.

Are we allowed to post cheater-threads?

You cannot beat those trolls by cooperating (trying to get a win when they slow-play). When you do that, you are giving them the satisfaction that they beat you. They may not have beaten you in the 'who got the recorded win in the database' battle, but they have beaten you in the 'who got to enjoy the game time better' battle. The latter is what they want, not the former.

In addition, once they are identified, their (free) accounts are banned and their rated games invalidated. So if you resign and blacklist them, you will haven beaten them in both battles. The latter (time enjoyment) immediatly, and the former (database win) later. The bad experience will be short and have no rating consequences.
1.Can you explain how this is so? I didn't connect the dots. How do you not lose points by resigning? I also have had people slowplay me and I usually stick it out if I don't have anything else going on.

2.Also, these players are not trying to enjoy their time, like most people. These players strictly want to see their rating be higher. I have played these kinds of people in other games. They don't enjoy their time. They have an inward insecurity that they shallowly cope with by looking at their rating. The last time I got slowplayed, the guy told me to go die after I stuck it out for 20 minutes. They definitely hate it when you stick it out.

3.Lastly, what happens when someone gets blacklisted? Simply can't get matched up with them in the matchmaking? A guy said he was going to blacklist me after I denied him some undos....

General Discussion / Re: Undo Request

I see your point.  Are you a player who does not also play IRL (in real life) Dominion games?  I will not speak for others on this site, but this is my perspective, when people ask for an Undo: Are they asking to correct a mistake where, IRL, that mistake would not have occurred?  If so, then I grant the Undo.  *Even if* they have received new information.

For example, earlier in the thread someone mentioned "Lost in the Woods," where you can get a boon at the beginning of your turn by discarding one card.  They way the online game is set up, it is very easy to accidentally select a card in your hand to play, only to see it discarded for Lost Woods.  IRL, that sort of mistake just would not happen.  So, I grant that Undo, *even though* the other player has now seen what the boon will be.  It's just not that big of a deal for me (although I don't blame other players who would do differently in that situation).  And if I granted such an Undo, I would also put a comment in the chat, to the effect of, "No problem to give the Undo.  But only one of those per game."  And I'd make sure I add a 'smiley face', to keep things light and friendly.

[Note:  This has never happened to me.  But if the other player was dashing through her turn AND also repeatedly complaining that I was playing way too slow, I suspect that I would be much more likely to deny an Undo request that was due to her playing too quickly.]  :-)

I don't play it competitively, but I do play it irl. I assume when you take a card and lift your hand from the pile, that's the decision you make. correct?

Most of the undos I get are trashing errors or cards they are new to. I understand both, but I think it is most reasonable to let them learn from their mistakes. If they want to buy a card to learn how it works, they ought to be willing to deal with the negative consequences of doing so, as well as the benefits.

I think too many players have an entitlement complex at this game.

I in no way cheat at this game and do like cheap wins, but why do people expect their opponent in a game to help them? I want you to lose. Go cry. lol.

I would normally grant an undo request without expecting an explanation if no new information was gained at the last step.  On the other hand, if information was gained, I would normally ask for an explanation.  I suspect this is a fairly common opinion on the matter. Some people do refuse undo requests altogether, of course, and that's their prerogative.

I agree. While it's obviously good sportsmanship to grant an undo, isn't it also BAD sportsmanship to ask for multiple undos in a single game? I have had multiple people give me a mouth full for denying their requests because when I asked for their intention, it was pretty obvious they rushed in making a decision.

I only ask for click errors, like if I click on  end buy instead of done trashing or something when I have obvious money to spend. The amount of requests I get in return because they rushed is like 10-1.

If you misplay your hand and, say, make a choice that only lets you trash one card when you can trash two, that's on you!!!

Sports are about winning and losing. What is "good" about someone who knows how to play the game undoing his way through a game? Shouldn't that person just deal with it and know better next time? That's actual sportsmanship.....
