General Discussion / Bonus Code for Online
« Last post by Steinways on Today at 01:06:30 PM »
Hi,
I was looking to upgrade my physical base game of Dominion to 2nd edition, and the cover promises (I'm from Germany) "play one year Dominion Online for free".
Does anyone know what this means, precisely? Does it give me one expansion, silver subscription, gold subscription or something else entirely?
Thank you in advance!

There are some websites where there are significant advantages to keeping a membership active (lots of benefits that have been discontinued for new memberships but are grandfathered in for existing ones...Amazon Prime, for example, still charges me the original--much lower--price for its annual membership).  For these, it's pretty important to keep up one's membership.

Here, there is no financial cost to letting a membership lapse...either intentionally or due to a lack of advance warning from Shuffle.  If the membership ends, then you can just renew easily the next time you try to log in and try to create a kingdom with more than Base cards.  As such, I guess I fall into the camp of "Okay, lack of advance warning has no real-world consequences."

Actually, it is sort of a benefit.  If you are an infrequent player, you'll actually save money with Shuffle's approach.  You played 2 weeks ago, and your membership ended.  13 days later, you log in again to play.  You can set up your new subscription then--saving you those 13 days of payments (for that time where you were not playing anyway).

Feature Requests / Friend list improvements
« Last post by AdamH on 18 January 2019, 06:38:39 PM »
When I get a friend request from someone but I haven't approved it yet, the only way I know that I have these is to go to my friends tab and scroll all the way down to the bottom. Similarly with friend requests I've sent out and haven't been approved yet. It would be nice if the client would show a little notification around the friend list button telling me the number of friend requests I still have to approve (just like every social networking platform has). At the very least it would be good if those were at the top of the list instead of at the bottom and/or there was some way to know if I had friend requests that need attention.

There is currently no way to decline a friend request, I just have to let it sit there unapproved forever. I have a few of these laying around and no way to get rid of them, which makes it even harder to find the new ones that I want to approve. There are a lot of ways this can be done and they are probably all fine, but as of right now my friend list is kind of a mess and I have no way to fix it.

Right, unlike other companies that inform you 'too much' that their valuable servive will soon run out and you should do something before the sky falls down on you, here nothing happens (either beforehand or at least after the subcription ran out). Neither behaviour is optimal, from my point of view (as consumer).

Yeah I like that I don't get E-mails and warnings that it's going to run out soon.

I would prefer an in-client message, one time when something runs out, that says "hey you might want to renew this"

I personally would say there should be a minimum of X card slots that are not filled with a specific card and that those open slots should draw from a *combined* pool of at least Y cards.

I'd set X=4 and Y=30, that means you can have at most 6 fixed slots and need at least 2 different expansions among the open slots, in which case at least one must be a 'big' one (Say 6 fixed cards, 3 slots for Intrigue and one Promo card slot). If you leave one card slot totally open (no required expansion), that should fullfill the Y conditions usually alone, unless someone is really only familiar with base cards.

That should give people lots of options for their familiar cards or banned cards, without being able to overly game the system. Of course, it is debatale if e.g. only playing kingdoms that contain 6 fixed cards (say always a viable draw engine, or always a Goons engine, etc.) should be the basis of someone's rating.

Yes I think the answer is allowing rated games to be played with familiar cards (maybe with some restriction that prevents you from gaming the system -- like you need to be familiar with at least 50% of all cards or something), especially since I think somewhere that DXV insisted that this be the case and everyone agreed on it? Wasn't it called "Ban N cards in rated games"?

In fact, I don't play rated games and if it was this way I would play rated games.

There's some difference between familiar cards and explicitly specifying kingdom cards, in that you know what you sign up for. (I wouldn't know which cards my opponent has unfamiliar.)
But I would also not mind being able to have rated games respecting familiar cards.

https://www.reddit.com/r/dominion/comments/ah5s5a/question_about_rated_games_in_dominion_online/

I can set up a table and play a rated game against a person where I specify one or more of the kingdom cards. If I can't use the familiar cards feature in rated games and I can do this, there's an inconsistency here.

Either rated games should always be full random or they shouldn't be -- whether automatch is used shouldn't affect this.
