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

If you are talking a 2-player game, then the penalty is simply a loss by the resigning player (and a win by the other player). That has the usual ratings consequences. I'm not sure what more you would want.

In 3-player games, the penalty is harsher, the ratings loss by the resigning players is magnified, because it makes it impossible to get an accurate result between the remaining players.

Dota 2 is a team game, so if you quit, you are actively hurting your own team mates. In Dominion, there are no team mates, you hurt yourself only in 2-player games, and as I explained, you get a harcher penalty then just placing third in a 3-player game.

Makes sense. These people aren't usually creative. I'm always down for some trash talk here and there but this crosses the line.

Can you add a penalty for resign in ranked games, or need approval by opponent. It hurts game play a player can resign whenever they want. Dota 2 for example used to not have a penalty for quitting games early in dota 1. But now in dota 2 there is a penalty, and alot less players quit during the game and it helps the game be a lot better.
It is unfortunately played more 1vs1, but the waiting time is also dependent on your rank. If you are too good a player for other filters that may not you
Card Bugs / Re: Crown auto-play doesn't work when you have Villagers

Ah.  I learn one new Dominion thing each day.
The problem with this approch is simply that it would make slow playing that much easier. You just ask again and again for the same undo and if that resets your timer, you can stall indefinately.
Perhaps the interface should be reprogrammed to make the player receiving the undo request and not responding the one who gets timed out, rather than the player whose turn it is.  Or if that's too radical to void the game entirely rather than giving the player who got no response a loss.
I seriouisly doubt that any change took place, usually that's announced in a small post.

Also, you can't that easly determine the number of players waiting for a rated 3 player game, because the #looking for practice games also includes those looking for 2-player practice games.

Did you maybe loose or win much in recent days? That may have affected your rating and drove either your 'usual opponents' out of your accepected range or vice versa.

I'm aware of being able to view the queue counts (that's how I observed that when # waiting for 3-player minus # wanting practice game is 8 or more I used to get matched quickly, but don't match now even when that count is over 10).  And no, my rating has not changed drastically -- as usual it's hovering in the mid-to-upper 50's on the 3-player board.

Peddler counts Action cards in play, not "Actions" that allow you to play Action cards. So in that sense calling Coin of the Realm doesn't help you directly. And Peddler will count a Crown in play as an Action card, no matter when it was played.
