Username is deene. Here is my feedback, a list of the things you mentioned that I would like the most.

4. Options for timed games -- yes I would like this
6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends. -- yes I would very much like this
7. Option to invite specific players to your table -- yes this would be super useful
12. iPhone app -- YES!
15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion - this would be very useful for new people, especially if it included strategies.

It's gotten very good over the past few months, keep up the hard work.

Stef. An offline client would  be nice, but I think that if we play it on our computers we will be online anyway (except maybe the airplane, that is when I would use it.)
The bots and AI work I think would be the most beneficial. I like the idea of phone/tablet apps. I never buy apps sight unseen and don't really like subscriptions. I would be enticed with a free app with a one time total unlock of reasonable price $10 or so. I also would want reasonably priced expansions. I am not saying these are feasible for your business model, but this is what drives me at the app store. Some games i have purchased from the app store are ticket to ride and Minecraft(before Microsoft). Tourneys are nice and I would miss out on this game online if it wasn't in my language.  These are some of the things that are important to me. thank you for the feed back and requesting ours.

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
I prefer playing with real player but why not to try campains.

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
bots are not my pleasure.

3. A strong bot.
bots are not my pleasure.

4. Options for timed games
Maybe rather reduce the wait time.

5. Options for undo settings
Not an issue for me.

6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
Turnaments are interesting only when there are some prices in my opinion. As in poker, the mind is diferent when a price is to win.

7. Option to invite specific players to your table
Yes !

8. More translations (to what language?)
Not so important and i speak only frenglish ^^

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
Don't care.

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
That's already fine.

10. Option to hide the log
Don't care.

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
Don't care.

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
Don't care.

13. Downloadable game logs
Don't care.

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
Don't care.

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
Don't care.

16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
Don't care.

Personally, I think the game is fine. I very much appreciated the free year after the switch.
That's it for me.

Thanks for doing this. I have been enjoying the game and notice improvements over the last year.


My highest priorities
2. A bot with a setting for different play styles - I don't know if I would care to select a play style, but I think it'd be great if there was more variability in the play style of bots. Like if there were 4 bot profiles, and playing against a bot would randomly select one.
3. A strong bot. - better AI would be highest priority. An option to change the difficulty level would be great.
10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ... - I did notice in last game that I had no idea my opponent had Princed a card already
11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?) - yes please

Medium priority
1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots - this would be fun. almost "high priority", except I think I would still be fine just playing regular matches vs bots or other users instead
5. Options for undo settings - I'm not sure what options would be introduced. It does seem that the undo doesn't always work, although better than it used to be. Maybe if you could select a point on the log to go back to that would be more useful (for bot games) then only going back one move at a time
6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
7. Option to invite specific players to your table

Nice to have but wouldn't affect me much
4. Options for timed games - I mostly play bot games, but my live games seem to go fast enough.
8. More translations (to what language?) - n/a
9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/... - animations seem fine for the most part
10. Option to hide the log - I like having the log and don't think it takes much room on a desktop
12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?) - don't have an iPhone
13. Downloadable game logs - I don't see much use for this
14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...) - I mostly play against bots, so haven't had issues with this
15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion - I wouldn't use this, but seems like a good idea for new users
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online. - I wouldn't use this, but seems like a good idea for new users

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots

I don't care about offline, but I would like playing campaigns against bots.
There could be some campaigns with special rules, but I would primarily like campaigns with standard rules, first against standard bots and at the highest levels bots that are tailored for their own kingdoms, probably with the help of simulators.

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
 3. A strong bot.
What I primarily want bots for now is for recreational play where I don't think a lot about how I'm playing. Maybe I'm just unwinding or have to leave soon, so don't want to start a "real" game which I might not have time to finish. This would be much more fun if the bots played a few notches better, so that would be a high priority for me. But a really strong general bot is not a high priority for me.

I'd like difficulty settings, but other than that different "play styles" are not needed.

Not that important.

10. Option to hide the log

I'd like everything to be seen outside of the log. When that is the case it sounds reasonable that it also would be possible to hide the log, but I can't say that would be important for me, because I wouldn't do that.
Yes please for the better visualization point!

Not worth it. I'm fine with just not playing against them again.

Learning should be part of the campaigns, I think. It's good to play against bots when you are learning, and a campaign gives a sense of progress and you can introduce stuff in a sensible order. So I think there should be a free first campaign with the base set cards, with totally normal rules where act 1 is the recommended first kingdom.

Well, this is my answer: it's not about gaming options, it's about pricing.

As you mentioned, we all thought this is a one-time payment for a wonderful game. MF didn't make such a bad job. We bought a base and some expansions. You bought it, you got it, you played with it.

I don't even need adventures, bots and the whole rest of the features, I just want to play my favourite game online. This is not a product that has to be developed on going. Just build it up and keep it running ;)

Suddenly, somebody had the idea to change this well-working platform into a sad recurring payment non-sense stuff. I think, this will not work. Not for this pricing model anyway. I would agree to pay 50 bucks for a lifetime option or MAYBE 10 bucks for a year, but not 50 bucks every year. I decided to get out of this and I even think, this will not work the way you intended. But maybe, I am wrong...

P.S. No need to think about spending me a half-year free gaming period. I won't use it. I am done.

My Thoughts:
I Would like to be able to click a button and see all the cards in the current game with the text visible.

I Would love to be able to save my choice of cards to be included in a game so i could play the same settings again later.
