How to Play / Re: Dominion Online Official FAQ
« Last post by Seabird88 on 07 December 2019, 04:12:33 AM »
I have a question.  So many times right before I win, the opponent will resign.  How does this effect ranks for them and for me for that game? I usually blacklist them when this happens.  It is a pet peeve.

Thanks,

Card Bugs / Masquerade asked me to "choose" from identical cards
« Last post by BarkAtKit on 05 December 2019, 06:52:05 PM »
This is very minor, but per my current settings (or maybe everyone's settings, I'm not sure) when any choice is among identical cards, the game will simply make it for me. For example, a Lookout that reveals 3 Estates won't wait for my click to trash one, discard another, and put the third back on top.

But I just drew a hand of 5 coppers and Lord Rattington played Masuqerade; the selection of "Copper" as my card to pass should have been automatic and was not.

Card Bugs / Re: Swamp Hag + Buying Mint Freezes Game

Thanks for the report, Vimmington!

I could find the game and it got stuck on me as well. I guess the 2 effects (Gain Curse due to opponent's Swamp Hag, trash Treasure from buying Mint) never made it to the UI, for whatever reasons. I'll try a few more combinations, to see if there is a more general problem.

ADDED: It seems that Mint is the problem. In other combinations (with Haggler or Talisman) it works, but doesn't show UI (only for Haggler/Talisman).

The answer to why the game sometimes asks you to pointlessly make a decision between 2 effects that doesn't matter is that the game is not smart enough to know that it doesn't matter. And each new expansion creates new ways for things to happen where it can matter, Innovation for example brought to light some bugs that simply couldn't be observed before because no effect existed that allowed a card to be played that soon after it was gained.

For future bug reports, it would be very welcome if you could include the game ID. It's printed at the top of the game log and the start of the game's chat. The latter you can also access during the end-of-game screen (maybe you need to scroll up a bit if you chatted).

The DomBot on Discord can find your latest games (that's what I used), but is restricted to games against human opponent's and AFAIK will not find your unrated games after a few days. It just immensely helps to look at the original game with the problem, because the cause may be something that is not apparent to the players (like a beginning player may have forgotten to mention the Swamp Hag).

As I said in the beginning, thanks again for the bug report!

Card Bugs / Swamp Hag + Buying Mint Freezes Game
« Last post by Vimmington on 03 December 2019, 02:04:43 PM »
Hello,
Both my opponent and I had a Swamp Hag in play when I tried to buy Mint the game paused and was waiting for me to resolve a choice except there was nothing for me to click. The game just hung there not giving me a curse and not trashing the copper I had in play, but waiting for me to resolve something. I clicked undo to try buying Mint again and the same thing happened. The game was unable to progress after that, forcing me to resign. I don't know why I'd need to choose getting a curse or trashing the copper when there wasn't Tomb or Sewers or Watchtower or anything that would trigger when trashing or gaining.
Thanks for looking into this,
Vimmington

Thanks to all commentors in this thread that gave thoughtful explanations and the reasoning behind their behavior and turned this into a thread that builds understanding of players' behavior. In this day and age on the internet it seems like the execption rather than the norm!

As someone who spectated numerous games of mine and has been at tables with me expressing that I dislike hand hiding and me having asked you before to unhide your hand this seems quite frankly ridiculous.

I am gonna assume here that you are not talking about me because I have no idea about your likes/dislikes. May be you were referring to Lemonspawn's comment?
Regarding hand hiding, I appreciate all the top players who have graciously agreed to open up thr hands for spectators. I would consider myself an average player at best and watching these games has been a fantastic experience. I learnt a lot from the games that I have spectated (if thats a word). But when I joined Dominion I didnt even know that this spectating can be such an enriching experience. I initially hid my hand because I didnt want anyone to see how I am playing. Now that I think about it, it is a poor attitude and I am fine with keeping my hands open. But I absolutely do not agree to give permission to discuss hand strategies while we are in middle of the game (rated or otherwise), and hoping that players will follow the basic etiquette.
Freaky, the implication regarding multiple accounts (crude) was because of your abrupt blow out with that parting message, as it was not very clear to me. Not everyone has been on discord or online dominion for months/years. Some people are very new and still learning the basics.

Yes I dislike hand hiding because I too like spectating games, just like you, so it shouldn't be too hard to see that it annoys people when they can't properly follow the game they are watching and while the blacklist feature can become a reporting tool if many people blacklist the same person it mostly is just a personal preference adaption to the matchmaking tool and I use it as such to ensure my spectators can fully enjoy the games they are spectating and I stand by that policy and by that token 'crude' informed me on discord of you hiding your hand as I ask my spectators to do so.
