1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
3/5 Would be a nice bonus but not absolutely necessary. As you wrote should come after having a good bot.

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
4/5 Should be considered while developing 3 (strong bot).

3. A strong bot.
4/5 Would be nice to test strategies! Should include an option to choose strength especially for new players.

4. Options for timed games
2/5 Nice bonus but not necessary.

5. Options for undo settings
1/5 The present way is convenient for me.

6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
3/5 Nice Idea! I would use it. Might be nice with included counter with wins/ losses and automatic alternating start player.

7. Option to invite specific players to your table
1/5 The present way is convenient for me. If this is implemented it should be developed together with 6 (online mini-tournaments)

8. More translations (to what language?)
0/5

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
2/5 Could help to see what the opponent is doing, medium priority for me.

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
1/5 Might help

10. Option to hide the log
0/5

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)

5/5 Absolute number one priority!! I bought an android tablet to play dominion and it's just medium fun with it. I was very happy to see that the reordering might work in the next release. I'm fine with improved compatibility like online-go.com where making a shortcut to the website on your home screen brings the perfect version without showing the browser. It confused me in the beginning a bit but is now very convenient as it does not to be maintained and it has no updates. An additional benefit of this would be that Iphones and androids would not need separate apps. If there is an app, an offline mode against a friend or against lord rat is a must!

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?) &
13. Downloadable game logs &
14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
0/5

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion &
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
0/5 Not necessary for me. Consider that new players who would need it will not answer in this thread.

I've come to the following decision: If you are one of the people for whom "free 2017" just ended, I am willing to extend it with another half a year in exchange for one hour of your time. The short version is "provide feedback and don't forget to include your username". Longer version below. The offer stands for anyone replying in this thread in the next 10 days and is only about expansions you once bought from MF. If you already bought a subscription for (a part of) 2018, I will extend it with half a year for the appropriate expansions.
Shortest I can make it: Yes to all except 4, 6, 8, 9, and 12-16.

I do want an offline version because mostly I play alone. I'm trying to keep practicing till I can give my son a run for his investment in time. I like bots that I can occasionally beat, and that I can learn from. I don't want to be constantly stomped (I lose heart), so I'd actually rather win all the time than lose all the time because that way I at least can get familiar with the cards, and develop strategies. Whistles and bells and pretty are not a big deal to me.

I may want an online version as well when my son moves away for college or work. It is in anticipation of the day when he moves away that I invested in the MF games in the first place.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I am the user AFIELBAUM in dominion.games
These are my answers

Here are some features we have on our wishlist; please let me know if you would appreciate/use them:
 1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
Not too important.

 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
I dont think there is a "style" that fits each set of piles. Not important.

 3. A strong bot.
Very important. Without it, the offline version is useless.

 4. Options for timed games.
I would only use it to increase the rapidness of the game.

 5. Options for undo settings
The only option i would add is to agree, prior to start the game, to always accept undo'es that are obviously an error (when you have no new information)

 6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
It would be fun, not too relevant.

 7. Option to invite specific players to your table
This would be nice

 8. More translations (to what language?)
I would like a translation to spanish but it is not really relevant

 9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
I dont care

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
This would be helpful

10. Option to hide the log
Nice

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
It is really slow to play on android, and it is easy to select an erroneous card. An app would be ideal, otherwise, strong improvements are needed.

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
I dont care.

13. Downloadable game logs
I dont think I would use this.

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
I have never used the moderation.

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
I dont need it.

16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
I dont need it.

Username: MVP
Played on original Isotropic server and every option since

 1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
   This is of no value to me.  Perhaps if I were really board on an airplane I would use it, but all of the value is in live games to me.
 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
   There are always lots of games available, I wouldnt use a bot at all.
 3. A strong bot.
   Same as above.
 4. Options for timed games
   Love this idea, I greatl enjoy playing an engaged opponent that is quick with the cards.
 5. Options for undo settings
   I guess this is a nice to have, but from a priority standpoint it is fairly low
 6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
   It would be great to have online tournaments.  However I wouldnt envision it as just setting it up as one for you and your friends.  There should be some structure for finding a tournament with similar skilled players.  This was done really well on internet chess club back in the day.  Adhoc tournaments and then a tournament leaderboard of some sort.
 7. Option to invite specific players to your table
   I enjoy playing with random people, not certain I would use this.
 8. More translations (to what language?)
   I wouldnt use this.
 9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
   Personally i would go the other way with this.  I always enjoyed the text based implementation on isotropic.  I would be very interested in a simplier lay out with less graphics.  The present UI looks fantastic, but for those of us that play all the time the animations and graphics are window dressing.
10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
   Yes this would be great.  Recent changes to be aware you are under an attack duration are great.  There are still some big ones missing (having debt while on black market comes to mind as something that looks like a bug)
   
   One thing I would really like to see added is a better in game scoring UI.  The end of game scoring update is great.  In game it would be so valuable to toggle over to that view as well.  Specifically I am thinking of when you need 3 of a card for points or to know which two cards are your highest count for the other event card.  Sure you should be able to card count it most of the time.  One of the other implementations allowed this view in game (or at least a count of how many of each card you have presently).
10. Option to hide the log
   Low priority, I find it quite helpful
11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
   Good idea, but I use an iphone, see below
12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
   Would love this.  I play on the ipad sometimes, but it isnt great.  Most of the time I have to spin up an AWS workspaces app and play using their UI as if I were on a desktop.
13. Downloadable game logs
   I wouldnt use this for much, perhaps it would enable some of the more advanced metrics on other sites.  I remember seeing strength of your play with specific cards, that was interesting and I dont think it is presently being done.
14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
   Sure this would be nice to have.

   I'll add another suggestion here, I would like the option to ban someone temporarily.  There are times when I get annoyed with someone and dont wnat to play them again in 24 or 72 hours, but i don't want to add them to my permanent ban list becuase I will never remember to take them off.  Would be nice to have a timer on the ban (or permanent for the real ass hats)
15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
   Not important for me
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
   Not important for me

I am just going to add a suggestion at the bottom.  I haven't read anyone elses comments (as was requested) so I am not certain if this has been suggested already.

I would really like to see real time rating updates.  Only getting these once a day is a real drag, it would be great to see how your rating changes on a more regular basis.

Here's my feedback -

  • Allow players to choose cards - this was my favorite feature of the old MF version and would love to see this in current version
  • While I've gotten used to having the VPs displayed it still seems to me that it really changes the game in important ways. Would love an option to not have them displayed.
  • Option to match w/ players who play at a desired speed. This couldn't be exact, of course, but some option of,
     say, not matching with players known to be slow would be fantastic.
  • Ability to invite specific players

Thanks and good luck with future development. My username is dsjdom.

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
I want this, if only to reduce the number of complaint threads. Sounds nice anyway

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
Don't need it

3. A strong bot.
Matthewmatosis has a term called "Artificial stupidity." I think it's important for casual players to have a bot that knows what it's doing but doesn't play optimally. Me personally, all I really think is needed is a Big Money X bot.

4. Options for timed games
Please

5. Options for undo settings
No information always, and a setting to disallow all other requests.

6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
Might be fun, but low priority

7. Option to invite specific players to your table
Needed

8. More translations (to what language?)
Some are on the way, as I know. I think this should mostly be worked on just as it comes up, but I would prioritize Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish. There are also several Indian players on DO who might benefit from Hindi, Tamil, Punjabi, etc. Maybe ask Indian players?

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
A bit controversial, but I really don't care about this at all. I think the client looks fine.

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
I'd like this

10. Option to hide the log
Seems completely unnecessary, especially if you do 10)

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)

In theory I would use it, but I don't really care either.

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
Down with Apple

13. Downloadable game logs
Sure

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
Almost everyone here is saying they don't care about this, but as a moderator, I think some improvement is needed here. I don't think there are any easy answers. A Report button might help a little, but doesn't solve the underlying causes. Muting chat & Timed play would probably go a long way here.

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion &
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
I don't think 15) is needed at all. Some kind of interactive tutorial for 16) would be good. Maybe get Adriaan on that at some point.

Pastorshooty here. Before I go through the questions, I'll just say that I am one of the unhappy customers. I really enjoy playing Dominion online and play just about everyday, but I feel as though I should have gotten something better for the money I spent on the previous platform. One year vs. lifetime isn't really a good deal. It should be an even swap - lifetime for lifetime. Please do what is fair for your loyal gamers.

Now onto the questions...

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots - this would be good for those rare moments when I'm not connected to the internet, but I don't see that happening too often.

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles - I don't play bots often, but that sounds fun.

3. A strong bot. - same answer as #3

4. Options for timed games - No comment

5. Options for undo settings - I think at least one undo should be allowed per game. I've had moments where a card was accidentally clicked and the other player would not allow the undo.

6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends - I like the idea of creating your own tournament. Playing against friends is more fun than playing with strangers.

7. Option to invite specific players to your table - YES

8. More translations (to what language?) - No comment

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/... - I think the current animations are fine

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ... - YES

11. Option to hide the log - YES

12. Android app (or just improved compatibility?) - YES

13. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?) - YES (Ipad would be better)

14. Downloadable game logs - I don't see the point in this

15. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...) - This would be wonderful. I'm sick of playing against people that act like jerks for no reason.

16. Tutorial on how to play Dominion - this would be helpful to new players

17. Tutorial on how to play dominion online. - this would be helpful to new players

Not important to me.

Hello,

I play Dominion once in a while and really enjoy it. I play a lot with bots, and my username is eowyn_32. My two cents would be:

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

Sure, this sounds like fun!

 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles

Yes! Since I do play a lot with bots, it would be nice to have some variety in style. A bot that didn't get "stuck" with certain cards all the time would be great.

 3. A strong bot.

I'm a medium-skilled player right now, so I'm not sure this would be a high priority for me.

 4. Options for timed games

Not a priority for me.

 5. Options for undo settings

Yes!

 6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.

Not sure I'm at this stage at present.

 7. Option to invite specific players to your table

Yes!!

 8. More translations (to what language?)

Not for me.

 9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
10. Option to hide the log
11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)

I would love such a thing and be interested in downloading it, depending on cost.

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)

Nope, not for me.

13. Downloadable game logs
14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion

Not needed for me, but I think important for new players.

16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.

Again, not for me, but great for new players, or if any significant new changes were to happen in online game play.

Hi Stef,

here's my prio list.
User name in Dominion online: Rachmaninoff

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
not necessary for me
2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
yes, nice to have - the bot's play style should be chosen either randomly or with a pre-set
3. A strong bot.
yes, this should be included in #2
4. Options for timed games
not necessary for me
5. Options for undo settings
undo should be automated in case there is no new information detected
6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
I am not sure, whether me personally will use this often - but could be fun for many players
7. Option to invite specific players to your table
yes, matching tab should include private tables and invitations for friends (or specific players)
it would be nice to have some more information together with the player's name always when this is shown (current level, a little flag of home country, an avatar)
8. More translations (to what language?)
no
9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
yes, could be nice - but I recommend a smoother log with last cards bought pictures, last card trashed pictures etc.
"smooth log" means also replay funtions in slow-motion for the last 1,2,3 turns
10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
no - I use the kingdom visualiser from Icehawk for this
10. Option to hide the log
see #9
11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
no
12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
no
13. Downloadable game logs
no
14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
no - Discord moderators do a great job here
15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
no
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
no

To be honest, I would like more statistics:
- leaderboard of the day / week / month (based on games last day / last week / last month)
- shooting star of the day / week / month
- bring the Breppert tool into Dominion online
- leaderboard against bots (when #2 and #3 is implemented)

That's it - have fun and many thx for the job done so far.

Hi Stef

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
Not an important priority on the top. But at any time nice to have in case of an internet shutdown

 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
Yes, that would be nice, because I play a lot against bots (because I'm making some breaks during my work without looking for real opponents for a quick play). Different styles would be really nice.

 3. A strong bot.
Also this would be really nice, because the current bots are playing stupid (counterfeid, bandid fort, mascerade or trashing cards) I can imagine how difficult it is to create a bot-mashine that looks for the setting before starting to play, but it would be very nice.


 4. Options for timed games
Good idea to avoid slow players

 5. Options for undo settings
It's okay as it is

 6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
That would be a nice option. Good idea.

 7. Option to invite specific players to your table
No need for me

 8. More translations (to what language?)
No need

 9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
No need. It's okay as it is

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
Nice idea, but no need for me

10. Option to hide the log
Maybe good idea for smaller screens, but no need for me

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
No need for me

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
No need for me

13. Downloadable game logs
No need for me

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
Maybe an option to force a slow player myself with a time bank to start his next turn, otherwise he resign automatically

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
No need

16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
No need

Last but not least: I am very happy with the improvement of the online client the last year. Well done.
Best regards

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots  I started on the MF site and loved the campaigns, though they were online.  Even though I got stuck a number of times, I came back to continue playing.  I would be happy to have this feature back and would use it, perhaps equally or more than playing with random-style matching other people.

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles  Interesting idea, low priority.  Sounds hard to code what different styles of play are?  Do you mean choosing supply piles that are more Attack, or equal Attack/Reaction or Duration?  This doesn't matter to me though I might try it once or twice.

3. A strong bot.  ?  No opinion/don't need it.

4. Options for timed games  Not a bad idea, but not important to me.

5. Options for undo settings Low priority. I read a thread where it said you can go to a point in the log and undo from there, but honestly I just hit undo a few times if needed and don't try to undo more than what I just immediately did.  Just like live gameplay.

6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.  This sounds like fun, but only once you get to #7!

7. Option to invite specific players to your table  Absolutely!  What's been the point of making these "friends" when I can't invite them, only go join a table where they are and wait for them to finish what they're currently doing?

8. More translations (to what language?)  N/A but a good idea.

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/... I'm fine with what you have.

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...  Split piles for sure; it's helpful to know what's under, especially when dealing with newer cards.  Prince stuff becomes obvious fairly quickly, and I don't know Archive/Crypt well enough to comment.

11. Option to hide the log  Not important to me/very low priority; I like having the log there, as it allows me to look at another window and then come back on my turn and quickly scan to see what happened.

12. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)  13. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)  Nice idea but I don't care - I don't play on my phone.

14. Downloadable game logs  Don't care/low priority - I think this game is best played, not read.  There's too much to do in life to reread old games.

15. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)  Not a high priority for me; never had a bad situation, thank goodness.  Good idea in general, though, as there are always going to be troublemakers.

16. Tutorial on how to play Dominion  Does this exist already on the Rio Grande site?  Link there instead, as it's their game, and it makes sense to let people go there, learn more, perhaps even buy something if they like it enough.  (Looking, it seems you can download "Game Assets" including the rules; don't know if that's sufficient, or if you want to link to the basic rules of gameplay?  Just saying: don't reinvent the wheel.)

17. Tutorial on how to play dominion online. Tips and tricks to using your system makes a LOT of sense.  For instance, on my mouse (PC) I right-click to read a card, but on my Macbook I have to tap my track-pad with two fingers to read the card.  I had a bit of trial and error before I figured those things out.

My username is NBY.  I would greatly appreciate another 6 months for free!  I'm sorry your feedback got out of hand.

Stuff I would use/want from your list:

Here are some features we have on our wishlist; please let me know if you would appreciate/use them:
 1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots

-> Yes yes yes. I don't really care about campaigns, but being able to play bots offline would be great. Even if they aren't very good.

 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles

-> Yes.

 3. A strong bot.

-> Definitely

 4. Options for timed games

-> I don't think I would ever use this

 5. Options for undo settings

-> Maybe. But likely not. What you have now works fine 95% of the time

 6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.

-> In theory I would like this. In practice I will not use it until the kids are older

 7. Option to invite specific players to your table

-> Sounds nice, but I would not use it

 8. More translations (to what language?)

-> Not for me

 9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...

-> I don't care about this at all

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...

-> Maybe nice to have (I'll bet I would appreciate it when its there, but I'm not asking for it). Being able to read the card at the bottom of the split pile would be nice (but at this point I have it all memorized anyway)

10. Option to hide the log

-> I would never hide it

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)

-> I do not have an Android. But if there was an offline mode I might play on an Amazzon Fire on planes

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)

-> yes yes yes. Last time I tried it was unplayable. Is it better now? An app would be fantastic.

13. Downloadable game logs

-> I would like this for others in theory. But I would rarely use it

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)

-> I would like to be able to better deal with chat abuse and slowrolling. But solution now is fine. Someone only gets to do it to me once and then I lightningbolt them and never see them again

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion

-> Not for me

16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.

-> Not for me


Thanks for all the work you have put into this. Definitely worth whatever I pay you per year for the enjoyment I get from it.

Thanks,

Ed
