Noted, I just left it on in case the resign feature actually came up. My thinking is there are a number of edge cases where the bot might get hung up and giving a way out for user would be nice. but fair point on just resigning. Game ended

After a period however long in which it works like it does now. Stef said it sounded good and then I said it was the move and your argument sure hasn't swayed me.Quote from: jeebus on 03 March 2017, 06:11:45 PM
As far as switching to AI... Sounds like a lot more work to implement. And it's still going to foster the bad form of resigning a few seconds before the game is over. If I was about to buy the last Province, it doesn't really make a difference if I do it against a bot. I'll still feel like I was subjected to a rage quit or at least an annoyed gesture. Switching to bot makes more sense if someone resigns earlier in the game. But of course, since the bot will probably be terrible at playing the other player's deck, it's not really going to tell me much about how the game would have played out.
QuoteI must be missing something, it seems like these two things contradict each other. The whole point of doing anything would be because players can't be expected to know of all bugs in the current version of the software, so that they can be played around; but some players would. The ones that know about the bugs would get an unfair advantage and the ones that don't are going to have a bad time.

The leaderboard displays you (after you have played one rated game and a subsequent update at 0:00 UTC), your friends and the top 20 players. See this post: http://forum.shuffleit.nl/index.php?topic=1679.0

There also doesn't appear to be a way to logout when finished which could increase the need for kicking and may make those security conscious people nervous.
You log out by closing the tab.
(or by severing the connection in some other way)
I've seen that, however speaking for my wife, that isn't sufficient. She is slightly paranoid about logging out of things and needs a confirmation that it has been done. It might be a minor change, but from a security perspective is something I think should be added.
