Hello and thanks for extending subscriptions to players!
I've paid for all the sets on the old platform, and play when I can.
Would love to be able to have full range of the sets again.

Here is my feedback to your questions, hope subscriptions are still available :)

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
Not as interested in the current bots. I enjoy the multi-player aspect. Never found a bot that could trick me yet unless they beat me to an engine build or something along those lines.

 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
Same. If I would chose a play style, than I would know how to counter it. I think many others would be down haha.


3. A strong bot.
Yes. What would this look like though? I need a bot that can read mid strat switch!

4. Options for timed games
Love this concept!

5. Options for undo settings
As always, yes. Mutual agreement has been working out great. Maybe limit the undo amount to 3?

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

Would use this feature, and might even gain more users if marketed right!

7. Option to invite specific players to your table
Yes, works with friends list, and used it quite often after making new friends.

8. More translations (to what language?)
Can you integrate google translations? Have it translate to users profile language?

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
In todays world, costant facelifts tire me out. I could care less about the animations, sparkle, glitter, unicorn, shine... I care more about the build!

10.1 Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
Perhaps a layover visual with access on a corner of the main card?

10.2 Option to hide the log
Sure, but I use the log, haha

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
Would love a mobile app!

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
Used be on iphone... would love to be able to play those users!

13. Downloadable game logs
Yes. With generated graphs would be lovely. I think you'll find this fan base may even animate their graphs...hmmmm

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
Slowplayers: Strict timed response actions. 10-15sec (hidden) clock to make a click move. Then give the option to boot, with a 5sec last call overlay visible countdown?

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
Not for me, but would be valuable

16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
Not for me, but would be valuable ;)

Thanks for reading and working to make the future best!

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 play mostly against bots, so I never have to worry about walking away due to interruptions.

 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
While different play styles sounds nice, I'd like them randomized (hopefully that will be an option). It does suck sometimes when the bot is TOO predictable. (always contrabanding gold, for instance.)

 3. A strong bot.
yes, I like a challenge


 5. Options for undo settings

Would depend on the options. Sometimes I genuinely click the wrong thing, but sometimes it feels like cheating.

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
Yes! I would pay for an app that played the game well on the phone.


15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
Great idea, but I don't need it.

Thanks for offering to extend our subscriptions! I have been sad ever since my 2017 playing ended.  My username is puddlediving.

Hi Stef!  I think this is an interesting way to take feedback, but I'd rather not have the extended credit as I want to continue to see success from ShiT.

I'm going to start by looking at your wishlist features.  First, the stuff I don't care about and would prefer to see at the bottom of your wishlist:

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
3. A strong bot.

Bots are no fun, I'd rather just play a solo game if I want to test things.

4. Options for timed games

Please no.

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

Yeah, I definitely play Dominion for the animations!  Sparkles and stars and no, screw that, I'd prefer a complete lack of animation.  Old Skool Isotropic.

10. Option to hide the log

Given I hate animations, I don't have a reason to hide the log.  Though again there's Old Skool hiding all but the last 2-3 turns.

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)
12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)

Meh?  I can count on one finger the number of times I've played or wanted to play on my phone or tablet.

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

I think this is an interesting idea, but I frankly don't think you'll be able to do this any better than what's here now.  I can block players I don't want to play with again, that's enough.

--------

OK... Now stuff from your list I, personally, am actually interested in:

13. Downloadable game logs

OMG PLEASE ASAP.

Seriously, though, this is the single place where you guys have severely dropped the ball.  Goko had this from the start; so did MF.  The isotropic logs made modern strategy discussion possible, and the lack of said logs in any format is barbaric.  Even if you leave it in a text format, I'm sure someone will prettify it quickly.

I also feel the current log is poorly done.  It doesn't mention when actions, buys, coins are gained, it skips other steps... it needs a rework.

7. Option to invite specific players to your table

This is pretty important as well, especially for tournaments and the like.

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

Yes, this is extremely important.  I know the cards, so I don't really need the split piles marked any more, but not everyone does.  The inability to see set-aside cards other than Island, NV, and Reserve Mats is really odd and need to be fixed.  Also iut can be hard to tell which thing is where.

5. Options for undo settings

It would be nice to have some automatic undo things, where the game state isn't even sent to your opponents until you do something that goes past that.  Autoplay of treasures and the like.

--------

The rest of the things you list for your wishlist don't really apply to me at all but might be useful for others.

A couple of things I feel you've missed:

A. Moving decisions out of the log

Sure, we've all gotten accustomed to it, but that's no reason for it not to be fixed.  It's ridiculous that, for instance, calling things from Reserve is at the bottom of the log rather than presented mi
