Do the following:

1) Open a private (Firefox) or incognito (Chrome) window.
2) Navigate to "dominion.games".
3) Enter your name and password, but do not click on the Login button.
4) Instead, below that button in smaller print is text "Kick and Resign". Click on that text. It should clear up problems, now you can play on "dominion.games" in a normal window again.

Jyo91, your in-game name is now "Diprotodon19".

Best regards,
In a 2-player game a resignation is just the same as a loss, ratings wise.

For 3+ player games a resignation is worse (ratings wise, by a factor of 1.5) than coming last in the normal course of the game. That's because the 3+ player game cannot be finished (you can't simply remove a player, and substituting a bot isn't good because the bot is playing badly/differently), and so the other players can't find out who would have won.

So even if you know you will be last, this encourages you to play on, so the other 2 players (in case of a 3 player game) can determine who wins and give the winner the appropriate ratings increase. You're bound to profit from this when you are the one in the lead and one person is hopelessly behind, and then they don't just resign.

It's the same with any multiplayer game: If one person leaves, the game is often crippled in that it can't be continued.
Just to be clear.  I was not worried about losing a single game.  What I was concerned about whether "resigning" had the impact of "trashing" one's ratings - as the first post implied, i.e. more significant than just a loss.

Hi! Can you change my username from Jyo91 to Diprotodon19
You can already kind of do the no-attacks thing by using your Familiar Cards settings (mark all attacks as unfamiliar and check the box "respect familiar cards" in the table settings).

As for the others, the game designer, Donald X, has expressed opposition to allowing most of these sorts of house rules on the website. While it's a bit frustrating, the devs have made it clear that they won't do anything without Donald X's blessing.
We've been using the following options for almost a year and really miss them now that we can't play live.

1. Equal turns
Yes, we are an experienced group.
We don't mind that it affects strategy of whether you buy the last Province or not.
The game already has that mechanic.
This tempers the huge 1st player advantage by offering duchies, etc. It's actually very interesting.

2. Approximately 3.5 to 4 Provinces per player
We prefer the game length of the 3 player game which has this ratio.
Whenever we use Colonies, we would use the same number of them as Provinces, but that's not as important.

3. No attack cards
This one is only for when one member of our group plays.
This could be a great option for newbies to learn with.

Could any of these become options that you could select in the online arena?

p.s. I tried to post this in Feature Requests, but couldn't
