General Discussion / Re: Nocturne cards unavailable?
« on: 21 November 2017, 10:18:23 AM »
Doesn't the word subscription imply that we would be getting new content as it would be added? I would use the term "lease" instead if you need players to buy a new subscription every time a new set is added.
Not really.  When you buy the Gold subscription, you are shown a list of the specific expansions that you are buying.  It doesn't just say 'all expansions'.

Other Bugs / Re: Flashing cards on trash/discard actions
« on: 21 November 2017, 10:12:01 AM »
I also use Firefox (though on Ubuntu rather than Windows).  On rare occasions (three times in about 500 game?) I have experienced a flashing border when selecting a card, but on those occasions it became apparent that Firefox had hung and I had no option but to stop and restart it.  I've never experienced a flashing border that then stopped flashing.

Interface Issues / Re: Nocturne and familiar cards

Based on this and other comments I have seen, I suspect that for any future expansion Stef should add a login message (I can't remember the actual name he uses for it) to both explain how to add the new expansion to one's subscription and remind players of the need to update their list of familar cards if they want to play unrated games with the new expansion.

Feature Requests / Re: private tables
« on: 17 November 2017, 10:02:44 AM »
Unfortunately (unless I'm missing something) one can only use the Advanced Options after creating the table, so there's still a short window during which unwanted players can appear at the table.  I've had this happen to me twice even though I rarely need to create a private table (usually only when I want to load an old game), so I agree that a 'Create private table' option is needed.

Card Bugs / Re: Problem after Golem draws Shepherd and Skulk
« on: 27 October 2017, 03:43:03 PM »
Yes, we tried Undo.  On the first attempt my opponent simply tried doing exactly the same as before and (perhaps not surprisingly) found himself stuck in exactly the same way.  Then we tried backing up far enough that he could reverse the order in which Golem played the two cards.  Once again he got stuck, though I can't remember whether it was immediately after Shepherd had been played or only after Golem had also played Skulk.  We didn't try backing up even further.

I can't remember for certain whether we'd had a previous occurrence of Golem playing Shepherd.  I have a vague recollection that that had indeed happened on one occasion when I played a Golem, thoigh I can't be sure as all I can remember for certain is that I played a Golem and was relieved when one of the cards it played had +1 Action.

Here's my screenshot.  It's probably not useful as it merely shows that I was waiting for my opponent, but I include it for completeness.

Card Bugs / Problem after Golem draws Shepherd and Skulk
« on: 26 October 2017, 10:03:37 PM »
I've just had a game in which my opponent was unable to do anything after playing Shepherd and Skulk as a result of a Golem.  The game number was 8120244.  We're both going to post screenshots.

General Discussion / Re: Dominion: Nocturne

Are the previewed cards going to be potentially selected when using Matching to play a rated game?  Or will we have to do something else to be able to play with them?

2017 Championship (archived) / Re: Biggest upset?
« on: 19 October 2017, 06:57:36 PM »
The more interesting question to me is what Singletee is doing in his regular rated games to be seeded so far down :P
Perhaps he experiments against human opponents rather than bots to see whether ideas he has come up with work.

Feature Requests / Re: Disable Undo for the game
« on: 07 October 2017, 07:42:34 PM »
I would much rather allow a few undo's for miss clicks / rules knowledge.
Than for the game to take a very long time because my opponent is being extra careful.
My feeling precisely.

Unfortunately some misclicks cause information to be revealed, in which case I usually refuse the undo (though in my experience very few players request an undo in such a situation), but I've never refused an undo if no information has been revealed.  Sometimes, however, it can be unclear what the undo refers to - for example if one clicks on 'End Actions' and then requests an undo, it will look to the opponent as though one is asking to undo the previous action - so some improvement to the interface would be desirable when time permits.

Drag and drops are also annoying in Chrome. I can never drag a card to the right-most position. If I want a card there I usually have to move everything else.
I've seen the same in Firefox, but it can be replaced by two moves, namely drag card to penultimate position at right and then drag right-most card to its left.

How to Play / Re: Welcome to Dominion Online!
« on: 22 September 2017, 08:42:05 AM »
  • Options: This menu has a number of options related to the user interface that you can toggle.
    Friend List: Here you can add a Friend if you know their username, and view Friends you have already made.  You can also view those who have requested to be your Friend, and potentially accept their request.  You can also end friendships.  You can also check your Blacklist, which comprises the users who are no longer allowed to join games with you.  You are able to blacklist a user on the end game screen after playing a game with them, by clicking the lightning bolt icon.
There's a bullet missing in front of 'Friend List'.

During your Buy phase, there is a button “Autoplay Treasures” which will play all of your Treasures from your hand so you don’t have to click on them each individually. 
It might be worth changing that to something like "which will play all of your Treasures from your hand that do not have side effects so you don’t have to click on them each individually."

Card Bugs / Re: Band of Misfits doesn't work as Ratcatcher
« on: 21 September 2017, 09:30:18 AM »
Not a bug: as soon as Band of Misfits is moved to the Tavern mat, it's no longer in play so reverts to being Band of Misfits rather than Ratcatcher and hence loses the ability to be called.  Moral: don't use Band of Misfits or Overlord as a Reserve card.

Support / Re: Getting matched
« on: 20 September 2017, 04:23:24 PM »
If I've correctly understood the requirement, the solution is to use matching after first setting its advanced options to permit practice games but not rated games so that the familiar cards' list will be honoured.  I think currently grackel13 is making a table but then finding that no one joins the table.

Card Bugs / Re: Contraband Cannot Name Cards From Black Market Deck
« on: 26 August 2017, 10:54:50 AM »
If I had to take a guess as to what is causing it, it would be that the code treats contraband differently than cards such as mystic and doctor because it is your opponent that names the card and not you.
I think that's a fair guess.  I'd go further.  I would guess that when Contraband was coded, the assumption was made that it must be possible to click on a pile to name the card whose purchase was to be banned, but that assumption overlooked that with Black Market the card to be purchased is not coming from a pile.
