Feature Requests / Order of the new buttons
14 September 2019, 09:09:25 PM
I have the feeling that the new buttons are sorted inconsistently. Sometimes the right button is the one that is used most often (e.g. Spice Merchant, +action/+cards) and sometimes it is the one that is seldomly used (e.g. Minion +2). I would like the right button to be the one used most often. I know that is not a clear distinction, but I too often have to stop and read the text.

Or maybe the right most button be the one that continues in the deck and draws more cards (Minion attack).

E.g. Pageant, the right button is "no thanks". That is so counterintuitive to me

Or Scheme, where to topmost option is "Undo"

btw I really like the new interface. I find it just not consistent yet

Thank you markus for your answer. I dont like it, it doesnt help me understand my deck. The sorting doesnt give me additional benefit.

Since the new update, the card get sorted strangely/differently. Before, I could trust that the cards I drew first were listed on the left. Now they are sorted in another kind of way that isnt helping me understanding my deck.

Thank you Ingix. What you write makes all sense. The estate was inherited.

Feature Requests / Show trash
08 March 2018, 07:09:38 PM
Hi folks,

I love the end screen where I can see the contents of the decks, but I really miss the content of the trash. I often wonder what the trash looks like to really understand what happened during a game. Would be so insightful. Is that difficult to implement?
Being a developer myself I have lots of sympathy for the difficulty of your task and the fact that it took longer than expected. I really like Dominion and enjoy playing it with your new client. Thank you for putting all the love and effort into creating it the way it is now.

For me the monthly price is a bit too high to keep it running so that I buy it for a month if I feel to do it again. The main reason for this is my lower interest in playing online games for distraction. I do not use it enough, although if I do I am very glad it is there.
(Since the Dominion community is so capable and willing to participate I think offering APIs to be able to contribute would be a great addition, e.g. to develop a strong bot or to prettify the log, etc. Although I do know that stuff like this tends to be a lot of work and might therefore not help you at all.)

I gladly answer your questions:

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
I do not need it at all.

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles

3. A strong bot.
A decently strong bot, e.g. that plays big money plus a key card, is enough for me. Although I would enjoy having a really strong one, it is not my priority.

4. Options for timed games
I would really love this - a lot. Like in chess, if you play complicated stuff you can do this with higher time controls or must know what to do.

5. Options for undo settings
Yes, I love to have: auto for no information reveal and grant for others.

6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
Nice to have, but no priority

7. Option to invite specific players to your table
yes please

8. More translations (to what language?)

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
not interested

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
yes, i want to see both cards of the split piles

10. Option to hide the log

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)

13. Downloadable game logs
I loved the old, beautiful councilroom game logs for analysis. Somebody should provide these please.

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
I would like to have a mute button in case the opponent annoys me very much.

Feature Requests / "Game has ended"-Button
18 December 2017, 06:58:48 PM

thank you for constantly improving the client.

I do not like the "game has ended" button, but I would be much more at easy with it, if the focus would lay on it, so that I can just hit the space bar and be done. Unfortunately hitting the space bar does nothing.
Other Bugs / Load game

there is a bug, that prevents old games from loading. For example #7421547 gives "Internal error". Is there any other way to inspect the game log of old games?

This seems to be the place to say thank you to all the moderators for this lovely experience I had. I felt well tended and in my experience everything went very smoothly, which I enjoyed a lot. Good luck for all the other players. Enjoy your remaining games
Thanks, I added "Notify by email" to my setting

Feature Requests / Replay games
17 September 2017, 01:36:11 PM
What I really miss often is a way to replay games, that I see on stream or youtube that are interesting to me. I would love to have an easy way to browse through the last games of a player and when I found the game I am currently watching (or spectating) press a button "replay that game" with all the shelter and colony options preset.
