« on: 08 July 2018, 10:18:47 PM »
This thread is for question regarding the signups, rules or anything else on your mind. Please ask them here instead of the Signups thread.

Basic info:

Signups are open until September 10th, the tournament starts September 17th.

Your commitment to the tournament is one match containing up to seven games per week until you are eliminated (single elimination).

Your skill level/forum activity is irrelevant, everybody may signup. Please make sure you're active during the tournament, though. If you signed in and something comes up, please make a new post in the signup thread to say you want to cancel your sign-in.

Also, check out the rules for further information.

Hey everyone,

if you want to participate in the tournament, please use this thread to sign up.
Check out the post below this a bit later to find out if everything is OK for your signup or if there are problems that need to be addressed.

If your username on Dominion Online is different from your forum username, please mention it in your post. Please remember that your account should have the required Gold subscription lasting until November 7th or later and 20 rated games played by September, 14th.

The tournament will start on September, 17th. Signups officially end on September, 10th. There may be a few more spots available to fill up the bracket, but if you want to garuantee your spot, sign up before the deadline.

Please use this thread only to sign up. You can ask questions or make comments here and read the rules here. Other types of comments will be moved/removed from here. If you need to sign out, make a new post to say so.

Summary: You must have a current Gold subscription to play. That means being subscribed to every expansion (up to and including Nocturne), between September 14th until at least November 7th. Also, you need to have 20 rated games by September 14th.

Dominion Online Championship 2018 / Rules
« on: 08 July 2018, 10:07:28 PM »
1. Eligibility to participate
1.1 To enter the tournament you must have a dominon.games Gold subscription starting on or before September 14th and continuing until at least November 7th. The Gold subscription contains all currently available expansions that are available online, the newest one being Nocturne.
1.2 Your account must also have at least 20 rated games played (by September 14th).
1.3 Each person may only enter once.
1.4 Shuffle iT employees and users who have been permanently banned may not participate in this tournament.
1.5 Moderators (see the end of this document) also may not participate in this tournament.

2.1 The organizers of the tournament provide a prize pool of 1000€ for the Top 4 finishers. Distribution:
    - 1st: 500€; 2nd: 300€ 3rd: 150€ 4th: 50€.
2.2 If more than 256 people participate in the tournament, players knocked out in the quarterfinals (5th-8th) will receive 6 months of Gold subscription added to their current subscription.

3.Tournament structure
3.1 The tournament will be a single elimination bracket.
3.2 All players will be seeded based on the 2 Player Shuffle iT leaderboard (as of Saturday, September 15th).
3.3 If the first round does not have a full bracket (e.g. exactly 256 or 512 players) the highest seeded players will receive byes in the first round 1, with a full bracket beginning in the second round.

4.Match structure
4.1 All matches are 2 player matches.
4.1 Best of 6 games, a win counts for 1 point, a tie for 0.5 points.
4.2 If either player reaches 3.5 points, the match is over and the winning player moves on to the next round.
4.3 Both players get to start 3 games. Alternate the starting player after each game. Starting player in the first game should be determined randomly.
4.5 If the score is 3-3 after 6 games, play a deciding 7th game with a random starting player.
4.6 If the 7th game is a tie according to the Dominion rules, the 2nd player in that game wins the match.
4.7 Should a game end in a stalemate, the result is void and the game will be replayed. (It is not counted as a tie.)
A stalemate is a game state where both parties do not alter the gamestate for several turns and do not intend to in the foreseeable future.
If player's do not mutually agree that a stalemate has occurred, players shall continue play for at least 10 more turns. After 10 turns have been completed, the player that disputes that a stalemate has occurred must break the stalemate within five turns by gaining more cards from the supply than they return, or gaining more VP (or losing less) than their opponent. At any point for the remainder of the game, if the disputing player is unable to gain more cards than they return, or gain more VP than their opponent over any 5 turn period, the game is declared a stalemate, and the game must be replayed.

5.1 The tournament starts on Monday, 17th September. There will be one round played each week.
5.2 Players are responsible for scheduling a suitable time with their opponent to complete the match during the week.
5.2 You can sign up until Monday 10th September.
5.2.1 Late registrations until Friday, September 14th are possible until we reach a full bracket (256, 512 etc).

6.1 Once the bracket is released, contact your opponent as soon as possible via PM on this forum to schedule your match.
6.2 If your opponent has not communicated with you by Wednesday, 12 UTC in the week you are supposed to be playing, please contact the moderators.
6.3 Your match should be scheduled to occur before Monday, 6 UTC of the following week.
6.4 If your opponent does not show up to the match, you move forward to the next round (allow a grace period of 15 minutes).

7.1 The default is playing on the Shuffle iT platform (dominion.games), with the point counter enabled, on fully random sets including all expansions up to Nocturne.
7.2 The default match configuration may be changed by mutual agreement between both players. (e.g. disable point counter, always include/exclude some cards, etc.).
7.3 Playing rated games is recommended for documentation purposes. If you do not, please write down the exact game numbers for each game (found in the chat box at the start of each game).
7.4 Using card trackers is forbidden. A card tracker is any system (besides the Dominion Online platform) at least partially automated, that keeps track of where cards you can't currently see are.

8.1 Please allow spectating for your tournament matches.
8.2 To enforce fair play, all players should hide their hand from spectators by setting the option "spectators can see my cards" to "No". This option is found under the "Options" tab on the main screen.
8.3 Also, make sure the table setting "Players can see spectator chat" is not enabled. This setting is found under the "Advanced Options" when setting up your table.
8.4 Streaming your own match is allowed and encouraged. Setting a few minutes delay is recommended.
8.5 From Quarterfinals onwards, every match will be streamed. Moderators may influence the scheduling to ensure no overlaps. The Players will not be penalized if this leads to a delay in the schedule.
8.6 The third party streams will be screened with a 10 minute delay and the live spectating will be limited to the streamers.
8.7 A dominionstreams Administrator account that has special spectating privileges will be used to view and stream the match.

9.1 Granting any undo requests is at the discretion of each player.
9.2 In the spirit of friendliness, we encourage (but do not require) players to grant undo requests for choices that do not provide new information.
9.3 Players may come to a different agreement before the match.

10. Handling Disconnects
10.1 If you disconnect during a game, use the reconnect feature. If your opponent is disconnected, do not make use of the "make resign" feature. This will not be counted as winning the game.
10.2 If the disconnect takes an extended amount of time, write down the game number and reload the game (latest decision) at a later date.
10.3 Instructions for using the reload game feature can be found here
10.4 If reloading the game fails, complete the remaining games of the match first. If no player has reached 3.5 points after completing the remaining games, contact your moderator about the lost game.

11.Sportsmanlike Conduct
11.1 As in every other game on the platform, sportsmanlike conduct is expected. Verbal abuse or slowplaying (not to be confused with taking time to think) may lead to a disqualification.
11.2 Keep in mind that in a competitive situation such as this tournament, players take a long time to consider a play. Do not make use of the "make resign" feature if your opponent is thinking.
11.3 If you are unsure of why your opponent is taking a long time to make a play, you should ask them to explain the situation.
11.4 Be respectful of your opponents time. You should make an effort to focus on the game and play at a reasonable speed. Inform your opponent if you are considering a complex play that may take a long time to decide on.
11.5 If you feel your opponent is breaking the rules of conduct, you may suspend the match and contact your moderator.
11.6 For any conflicts not covered under these rules, please contact your moderator, who will have the final say on the issue.

Moderators are: drsteelhammer, Gazbag, Ingix and volfied.

General Discussion / Re: Subscription pricing & structure

No, it's a good point you made. Also, I think it is always a good idea to mention when some post is caused by such an experience you (or someone else) had. I know that in theory it shouldn't matter, but in practice I think it does.

I added a new post to that thread, with current € values. If someone can give me the actual $ values used, I'll add them as well (I prefer to use the actual values used by the service, if possible, instead of exchange rates that may miss some fees).

Announcements / Re: Subscription pricing & structure
« on: 08 July 2018, 08:45:18 PM »
Since the original post has been made, Nocturne was released and thus the prices have changed. The US$ values are based on €:$ = 1.20, so this is an estimate to get the right ballpark value.

Gold subscription

    gives access to all current expansions
    costs about €3.45 /month or €41.40 /year
    costs about $4.15 /month or $49.70 /year

Silver subscription

    subscribes to Intrigue, Seaside, Prosperity, Cornucopia, Hinterlands and Guilds
    costs about €2.10 /month or €25.20 /year
    costs about $2.50 /month or $30.25 /year

Game Log Issues / Re: set aside cards after trashing and reloading
« on: 06 July 2018, 08:27:24 PM »
Strange! What it looks like is that the identity of the card gets lost. So you get the generic "a card" a cardback is shown when you click on it instead of the real card.

Also, while for Save the log entry where the card is set aside is afterwards incorrect (as your screenshots show), for Archiv it is the log entry when the card is taken back into the hand.

The sentence ending dots for the game end message are now also in the developer build for all the languages that were missing them.

The Arena problem was already in the 'known log bugs' list. I assume that they have similiar causes and can be fixed at the same time. I'm still looking into how exactly this works.

Game Log Issues / Re: too much indent for removing -Card token
« on: 05 July 2018, 03:31:41 PM »
I corrected the missing dots (for this and other token related messages) in a developer build. Until it goes live, I suggest playing japanese (which already has (the japanese version of) the dots)  ;)

I'll have to look into more detail for the indention issue.

And of course: Thanks writing the bug reports (this and others recently).

Interface Issues / Re: Known interface problems

Modifications in July 2018:

  • 18-07-04:
    • Added Overlord/BoM log name bug which can cause the log to incorrectly change the name of Overlord/Band of Misfits on some instances on page reload.
  • 18-07-05:
    • Moved yesterday's bug (and another log bug) to the more appropriate Known Log Issues post

Thanks for the report! I have an idea how to fix it, we'll have to see if it affects other parts.

Because it's not easy to find, note that you need to click on the check marks I highlighted in the appended picture to specify from which sets the cards are taken. In my example it would be a game with base cards only.

Hallo GSwarthout, welcome to Dominion online.

I can ask again, but please note from my previous reply that the behavior you're experiencing is *as intended*. The 'free year' was a promotional gesture from the new rights owner (ShuffleIT) and has expired now.

I know it is frustrating to see one's 'bought' cards go away (I fealt that way when the transition was announced). But strictly speaking, you have 'blame' the previous rights owner, who did not make it clear (or maybe they did and we all just overlooked the fact) that their license was not time unlimited.

Card Bugs / Re: Band of Misfits Peasant
« on: 22 June 2018, 06:35:36 AM »
Yes, that's true, unfortunaetly.

It might also be worth noting that autoplay options for Page/Peasant will be applied to a Band of Misfit/Overlord that copies them, even though that is probably not what a player usually wants.

General Discussion / Re: Trolls
« on: 18 June 2018, 09:59:41 AM »
The idea is to blacklist those players after the game (use the lightning bolt symbol in the end-of-game screen), so that you won't be paired against them in the future.
