General Discussion / Re: Why I am quitting dominion
« Last post by rickertt on 06 July 2019, 06:45:11 PM »
I am sorry, but I am not only a Dominion player.

I was ranked in the Chess rankings in my own country when I was young.
Then I've been a Magic The Gathering player for 20 years.
Then I am a RPG player weekly
Then I am a boardgame player weekly.

See, I'm not telling you that I am Top Star Dominion Number One player.
I mostly like to do combo. I don't even aim to win every game.

But when I am playing Risk I know I am not playing Puerto Rico, to say one, and I know that dice will have a preponderant role, or picking the right cards to exchange for tanks.

I'm not saying that Domionion is based on luck, again, as Risk is mostly based on luck with a minor touch of skill.

I'm saying that, and you can admit this without any shame, when two players are equally skilled, a game can last 3 rounds if one gets the right cards and the other the worst ones.

After talking with you it is obvious that this is perfectly fitting your likeliness to play a game.
In my case, it goes to fill an empty can of patience that today had its last drip.

You can have fun how much you want, but as much as you can say to me "you do not understand how dominion works because you are a low-level player and you're blaming your luck when you should blame your skill" (which is not the case but you are free to express your opinion) I can also say "You may have this feeling, but having been a player of many different games in 30 years I can tell you that luck in Dominion play a main role in a game. Not the biggest one, but not to underestimate either"

Who's right and who's wrong?
Probably neither.
You will think that Dominion is based on pure strategy, I will think that it's a mix, we both are entitled to our opinion, and I quit because it's getting annoying (playing, not talking to you).

I don't understand at all your feelings about luck in light of you being a Magic player. There is more luck in Magic than in Dominion. Ever heard of mana flood or mana screw? Not only do those conditions prevent you from winning, they effectively keep you from enjoying playing the game.

I think the experience has shown that a timeframe of years is unlikely to be realistic, weeks or a few months seem more realistic. Also I agree that any subscription decision should be based on the current state of the game, not a "maybe/hopefully feature X will be implemented in y months" consideration.

Like all online-only services it may change at any time, though I consider it unlikely that it will become worse (of course, new features may not be liked by everyone).

I guess I would like to hear an update about what is coming in the next couple of years from the developers.

And at this point I'm not renewing my subscription if I don't hear anything.

Lots more bugs have been discovered in the last 7 months than have been fixed. I need to see the trend go the other way. Still all of the communication has come through other people and there has been next to nothing stated by the developers

I appreciate your optimism. My subscription lapses over this weekend though and the last time I renewed it 3 months ago I regretted doing so. I need to know that something is going to change to make this software better before I put more money into it and I need to hear it from the developer(s).

Lots more bugs have been discovered in the last 7 months than have been fixed. I need to see the trend go the other way. Still all of the communication has come through other people and there has been next to nothing stated by the developers, specifically I'd like to know why the things promised at the start of 2017 haven't been done yet and what has changed to make us think that things might go better in the future. If RGG sees something worth renewing the contract for, maybe share it with the paying customers?

And re:bugs, let’s remember that people are human and while the period of silence wasn’t ideal, we can be thankful that a lot of bugs have been fixed recently, that promo development is in the works and that the renewed contract can be a new starting/motivation point for everyone.  ;D

To be totally fair, this hasn't been publicly posted at all, so it's reasonable for people to not know it's happening and have doubts. I didn't even know, and I'm usually in the loop on this stuff.

That said, if Stef was waiting on a new contract to continue development, I would 100% understand his decision. We don't know all the details, so I think it's best not to make assumptions.

From a business standpoint, RGG would have only chosen to renew the contract if they deemed it to be beneficial to them. The development of a platform like this is pretty non-trivial, and the opportunity cost of signing a new contract with a different development group to start development from scratch, given that this platform already exists and is pretty darn great (despite a few quirks), seems pretty big and risky.

Undoing a whole turn without opponent approval should not happen.

@twsb: Was that really "their whole turn" that they undid, or was that just a figure of speach?

Do you remember who your opponent was (so we can either ask them, or find the game)?

I know that undoing the Play All Treasures button does not need confirmation from the other player. Not sure if there are any other situations.

Support / Undo granting automatically
« Last post by twsb on 02 July 2019, 06:34:40 PM »
Hi - Today I was playing a game and suddenly the screen refreshed and my opponent was redoing their turn.  They thanked me for the undo in the messages.  However, I did not see or grant an undo request before they started their replay.

This happened twice. Did I accidentally enable an "always allow undo" setting? I usually grant undos, but some people abuse them so I'd like to have an option.

Thanks,

Margaret
