Feature Requests / Re: Autoplay Silvers first when Sauna is in play
« on: 27 July 2018, 06:22:34 PM »
Serves to show again that sometimes people want *completely* different things from the game (bot vs. humans, taking time vs. slow, etc.).

In 99% of time, autobuy is exactly what I want in a '1-buy this turn' situation.

You are right, the Sauna/Silver interaction has caught me also a few times. But the problem is that at the moment which treasures are auto-played is a simple, fixed, list (AFAIK). Making it situation-dependend would probably involve a lot of changes. The big problem IMO is not adding another situation (like Grand Market), the big problem is creating the infrastructure to even allow the analyzation of a situation.

For Changeling the situation was deemed necessary to have an Auto-Play, so the infrastructure was created, and lots of  other cards benefitted from that as well.

I think the Sauna/Silver interaction is also the reason why Goat isn't on the treasure auto-play list. It messes up the calculation what a player can potentially auto-buy.

Thanks for the link(s). Will need some time to read that thread. It looks like an offline version was a discussed point at that time already-

From the first impression, though, it seems like a general statement from what is *expected* to happen. Not extending the license was probabaly not on the radar at that time.

Now, from the formulation you used to describe Donald X., it seems clear to me that there is some more bitterness on your part. At least I would guess so.

I'd be interested in a link to that statement.

Most importantly, if you buy something from company X, any statement of someone not in control of that company X (even if they are somehow associated) should be taken with a grain of salt. I mean it should be taken with a grain of salt even if it comes directly from the company, as business realities can change and what is clearly intended now can be discarded tomorrow (or next week or next year).

General Discussion / Re: This community is broken

Again, thanks for all the thoughts on that issue.

One thing to remember is that (according to what I've heeard) almost(?) all bans are for free accounts. The players using them are not invested in them usually, that is they don't want to protect their ratings etc. It's a small step to open TrollAccount45 if TrollAccount44 is banned. It apparently even happens for games like Counterstrike that cost money each time you buy it anew.

Also, to dispel any illusions you probably don't have: This is not an operation that has the resources (like Blizzard) to look at lots of in-game chat protocals and find out if it is abusive/harrasive, etc.

I do agree that there should be an in-game way to report something, like slow-playing or abusive chat.

Thanks for the bug report, Redarian.

This issue has cropped up once or twice, I have no idea why the Lost in the Woods ability is handled differently than any other similar thing. My guess would be because it is related to a state.

First, of course, thanks for your honest opinion.

- People insulting in chat for a game.

- Players have nasty behaviours.

- People complaining about the right behaviour.

- Pepole losing time on purpose.

- People minding their own business and doing other stuff white playing.

So in one sentence: Players behaving like idiots.

I can count on examples all day long, still the fact is that I never encountered such a throng of unpolite and disrespectufl players in an online game.

This is astonishing. According to all the reports in the games media, player toxicity is a mayor or the mayor problem of competitive online games. Players insult *teammates* in games like Overwatch. In other words: Players behaving like idiots seems to be the norm, not the exception.

And since I don't think that Dominion is somewhat a magnet for trolls, I have to think that this community isn't handled properly by its runners, whoever they are.

The big question is how frequent this is. I remember roughly a year ago when lots of players reported abusive behaviour, mostly with slow-players. This died down after a while, so I *assumed* that the scope of the problem has decreased.

Too bad, because people PAY for this and they get a really bad service IMHO.

Hope that more people complain and something starts moving because this is actually unbearable, the forum is literally FILLED with complaints and nothing happens.

Can you point out a few from last month? I visit the forums daily and of course I see complaints, but they happen at a rate of say 1 per day. Since forum activity is down, it may look like much, but in absolute numbers it is small.

One last comment, about something you wrote very near the start:

Which is frustrating when one just wants justice dealt.

This seems to be a common attitude: Somebody did something bad to me, so I want somebody else to deal out justice.
I understand it and certainly I feel and felt that way on many occasions. But the philosophy behind what is done in this game is that the impact on the player experience for the 'nice and friendly' players should be minimized. You blacklist the person that did something you did not like, and move on. Players that get excessivly blacklisted will be looked at.

Of course, it may be that the problems got out of hand and more drastic measures should be taken. But I don't see evidence that this is true.

Again, thanks for your posting!

The recommended course of action is to blacklist the player at the end-of-game screen (the lighting symbol). If you want to do it now, go to the "Friend List" tab and choose the "Blacklist" button. This should bring up a list of players you have blacklisted and you can add the player you have in mind by putting his (Dominion Online) name into the "Username" edit box and click "Add".

Good catch!

General Discussion / Re: Can I retrieve a game log?

You can find it as the very first entry for a game in the chat window (see attached picture).

If you want to access it after the fact, then you only have a chance if it was a rated game. On the website http://dominion.lauxnet.com/scavenger/ you can enter your Dominion Online Account name and find a list of latest played rated games. If you click on one game, it will display the game ID (see second attached picture).

Of course that would be the best way. But because that's something I can't do, my best course for help was was to mention the workaround.

Confirmed. Best way would be to contact Glueskpilz in another way (if you can) and tell them how to get out of this siutation (kick & resign).

General Discussion / Re: Subscription pricing & structure
« on: 10 July 2018, 10:23:00 AM »
Yes, I assume any additional fees would come from the exact payment method chosen and can't be generalized. I'll add the US$ values based on EUR:USD = 1.20 which seems reasonable value for the last year.

In this post, you will find a list of people who signed up and which (if any) requirements have not yet been met.
The final update to this list will be made at the end of September 14th.

If it says pending subscription after your name, you need to go to the in-game store and purchase a Gold subscription to complete your signup. Choosing 3 month or longer will be enough. If you buy at or after September 8th, 2 month will be enough. Since the tournament lasts 2 month, buying the 1 month subscription will not help you meeting this requirement.

If it says pending #games that means you haven't played 20 rated games yet. You can find your number of played rated 2-player games by clicking on the "Leaderboard" tab. It is on the right side, the number following "Games".

If it says name not recognized please send a PM to Ingix to inform him of your in-game name.

Dominion Online Championship 2018 / Welcome
« on: 08 July 2018, 10:32:55 PM »
Hello Dominion players,

Welcome to the 2018 Dominion Online Championship! Besides the Dominion League, which operates around the year, the Dominion Online Championship is a once per year tournament open to all Gold subscribers. Last year, more than 350 players participated. If you dare step into the ring, we wish you the best of luck, as everybody vying for the title will be giving it their all. Remember to think carefully about the kingdoms set before you and the strategies your opponents will use, and above all else, have fun!

You will find all the information for this tournament in this subforum. Please make sure to read the rules carefully before signing up. If you've signed up, don't forget to check the forum when the tournament starts on September 17th. We recommend forwarding personal messages on this forum to your e-mail, if you don't visit this forum frequently.

If anything is unclear, don't hesitate to ask, either here or in the Q&A thread.

Here is the format summed up:

After everyone is signed up, we will create a full bracket seeded by your rank on the leaderboard. It's a single elimination tournament, that means after you lost a match (not a game), you are out. All matches are 2 player matches.

Each round, you have one week to play your match, which consists of six games against your opponent; the first person to win more than three games moves on to the next round, the loser is eliminated. If you end up playing 3-3, you play an additional deciding game.

We will continue to play one round each week until we reach the finals and subsequently have a winner.

The semifinalists will earn some sweet cash prizes, including 500€ for the Champion!

To participate, you need to have a current Gold subscription (all sets up to and including Nocturne) between September 14th and November 7th. Also you must have played atleast 20 rated games on your account before September 14th.

You can check your current subscription status in the Account tab of the game. All expansions should be in color and have an ending date 2018-11-07 or later. Look here, under 'pending subscription', for detailed instructions if you need to buy a subscription.

Looking forward to an exciting tournament!
