General Discussion / Changing the resign-timer for the beginning of the game?
« Last post by Grindcore on 01 December 2019, 12:21:46 AM »
I think it would be a good idea the shorten the resign-timer until the "start game" button has been clicked in the opening. Very often I have to wait multiple minutes for people to show up for the first turn. I understand needing longer than a minute to think about your turn 1 buy, or some end-game turn. But I feel a lot of people just hit the search button to start a game and walk away, coming back 4 minutes later, or even not coming back. Finding an opponent in matchmaking generally takes only a few seconds. So if the timer to make the opponent resign for not even clicking the "start game" button could be shortened to 30 seconds or so, this would safe a lot of wasted time.

Thoughts? :)

Look, I don't want to start/fuel a fight here, because I think Freaky and Crude are both positive members of the community.

But I do think the whole crusade against hand-hiding is extremely poor optics when combined with the fact that certain players are well-known to (using alts) play collaboratively on ladder using voice chat, with the second person as a spectator.  This really should stop in my opinion (even though I don't mind playing against these collaborative accounts myself), unless you want to get permission from everyone you play against, many of whom take the ladder very seriously.

Isotrophic didn't have spec chat, if I understand correctly.

It's hard to ban trolls because players who get banned simply make new accounts.
Perhaps, there could be a way to prevent slow-playing by adjusting the 4-minute timer.

Freaky blacklists hand hiders because it makes the experience of spectating the match much less fun, and many people spectate his matches because he's #1 on the leaderboard. I frequently spec him, and tell him on discord if people hide hand.

I appreciate the insinuation that I'm a Freaky alt, but no :winemerchant:.

Well, the general attitude among many top players (of which Freaky is one) is that spectating in Dominion Online is an important part of the experience. You can watch other (probably better) players and see what they do.

It's much better to understand what they do when you actually see their hand, so you see the choices they make (say between 2 terminals when they only have 1 Action left).

Of course, this opens the door for potential fraud by allowing your opponent to see your hand. The general consensus seems to be that this doesn't happen (or rarely happens). Of course, there is no way to know for sure.

So, the resentment is (at least according to my understanding) that because you hide your hand, you deminish the spectator experience.

Why is hiding ones hand bad? Onto the Blacklist Freaky!

I guess it is bad because they cannot see what your hand looks like (through alt account or discord-friend support) and then fume out when lose to low rating player. That would be the best guess and possible explanation  :) Otherwise it is quite a silly thing to throw a fit about.

Freaky and crude are two "well known" players (that means they are very active in the discord community) and so it seems unlikely that they are the same person. Those players usually have alts (second or further accounts), but usually they are identifiable like "other X" or a number (if you ever see Ingix2, for example, that's also me).

Freaky is very opinionated, not shy to express them and also not shy to act on them. One of their opinions is that players should not hide their hands. It's very probable that crude and Freaky where in discord contact, so they got the hand-hiding info from crude.

As I said and as you experienced, Freaky will call you out for what they think you did wrong, and act upon it (put you on their ban list).

A player named Freaky joined, and then another player crude joined. So freaky lost and this was the parting message. Attaching the snapshot. Is it like this player uses multiple accounts to watch opponent hands? Playing in a league I understand showing ur hand, but in a regular rated game, is it mandatory etiquette to show your hand?


Joining game #33143550 on frankfurt.
Freaky:  Why are you hiding your hand again?
Freaky:  Back to blacklist it is
jackDozen:  sory?


PS: The other player crude has to be him correct? Else how can he know I am hiding my hand.

How to Play / Re: drwal = brak karty woodcreator

That would be from the first edition of the base game. In the second edition, some cards have been removed and replaced by other cards. One of the removed cards was Woodcutter.

The online game has only the second edition cards, so you'll not find Woodcutter here.
