Support / Re: Automatch Queue
« Last post by dane on 11 October 2019, 06:59:35 PM »
I have a subscription and a rating of 50, have set my range to ±7, and always find a match within a few seconds (usually between UTC 1700 and UTC 2200), so I strongly suspect that the problem is that too many of the players in the queue do not have subscriptions!

Hi the_louse,

there was a similar problem stated recently. Do you want to join the 2-player or the 3-player queue?

The last few days my automatch queue has taken over 10 minutes to find a match. I am only ranked 50.5 and have my range set -5 through 8. Is there anything I can do to get quicker matches?

General Discussion / Re: Inheritance: Once per game, or once PER PLAYER, per game??
« Last post by Ingix on 08 October 2019, 08:55:01 AM »
You are right, adding "per player" would make it more clear that the intent is to have it used once per game per player.

Sub-question: As usual, the correct way to think about this is that while you Possess an opponent, all that is done is done by that opponent. So they bought Inheritance and used it an a crappy card. That has nothing to do with you. If you haven't yet, you can buy Inhertance and use it on the really good card.

The text seems to suggest that Inheritance can be played only one time per game, regardless of the number of players.  Once I've played it, you no longer can.  (Adding "per player" language would certainly make it clear that each person can use Inheritance.)
But history has shown that my "logical" guesses about rules is pretty far off.  :)

{Sub-question: If Possession is in the game, and I use Inheritance while I am possessing you [I'd only do this if I could pick a crappy card, to prevent you from using Inheritance for a really good card later on in the game, of course...and this applies only if, in fact, each player gets to use it.], will this count as "my" Inheritance?  Or will it count as your use of Inheritance?}

Feature Requests / Re: Add penalty for resign in Ranked games.

Dominion (3+ player) is a different matter. I don't like that there's a bigger penalty for resigning rather than losing, but I understand it.

There are two conflicting issues here. On the one hand, it can be very un-fun to keep playing a hopeless game where you can't do anything. And it can be a waste of everyone's time to finish out the game. On the other, we want to give the other player's a chance to sort out their rankings in the game.

Perhaps there should be a way for the whole table to agree to end the game early with a particular ranking of players. A relatively simple way to implement this would be an "Offer Resignation" button where the order in which people press it determines their ranking in the game. And once a player has pressed "Offer Resignation", add two new buttons: "Retract Resignation" and "Immediately Resign".

Dominion (2 player) is more like chess or go than Dota2.

In those games it is considered respectful to resign a game when you've clearly lost. If you play it out to the end, you're wasting both you and your opponent's time.

Dominion is still a little different in that randomness can play a role. So you need to set your own threshold where you resign at, say, < 2% chance of winning.

However, it seems like some people in the winning position like to play the game out anyway. One concession I'll make is it might be better etiquette to ask your opponent before resigning.

What I'd really like to know is how to tell an opponent that I would welcome their resignation without sounding like a jerk. Along the same vein, I sometimes get tunnel vision and don't notice how badly I'm losing. I would welcome someone politely pointing this out to me.

General Discussion / Re: Reporting a Player - Ickedettewa
« Last post by Qaanol on 07 October 2019, 07:15:10 PM »
But all indications point to the strong assumption that all these harassers and slow players are not players with a subscription.

I can verify that user Ickedettewa does have a subscription, and is still harassing and slow-playing.

I am currently in a game against him (game #31397548), and this game uses cards for which I do not have a subscription. Therefore Ickedettewa has a subscription.

He has a rating of 50.42, which indicates he has put some amount of time and effort into that account.

And he is harassing in both German and English, while not playing at all and wasting time.

Note that this is the 2nd game in a row I played against him. The first game he played normally, and I won. Then the second game he started trash-talking and wasting time.
