Hey, there's a new expansion coming out!  Who's excited?
I am! I am!

Soooo glad Nocturne comes out ASAP so I can play with it as soon as the cards come out. Need to get a Gold subscription though...
Interface Issues / Re: +$1 token just says +1

The little red box that appears on top of a pile to show me that my +$1 token is on that pile is great for all of the other tokens, but this particular token just says "+1" -- in a game with Peasant it can be confusing to see that box since there are four tokens that give you +1 of something.

I think it should say +$1, or maybe +(coin symbol).

Okay, I don't even know why I tried to argue.
Ok I agree that it could have a toggle off, but this was probably my favorite feature of ShuffleIT and I see few peoblems with it. It should not be off by default.

I do agree that it causes some problems, but I don't think that's a problem. "Confirm single trash/discard" fixes the rest and there's always the undo, which is planned to be fixed in the future to make it more helpful.

I think this is a verrrrrrry low priority concern.
General Discussion / Re: Pro leaderboard with bugs

I think there's a simple answer right under your nose: Don't play rated games.

If you are annoyed by bugs in the system and you think it's unfair the way they affect ratings, then play without ratings. I really can't think of a more efficient solution. It's perfect: You can ban the cards you want and not loose ranking due to stupid bugs, other people who don't care can enjoy having a sense of accomplishment even with slightly busted rankings.
1: Better AI. Some time spent fixing up all the dumb mistakes (trashing provinces for example) would be much appreciated.

2: Apps. A long way off but still very much wanted.

Silence, which is what I have gotten for pretty all of my other direct questions to the developers, is different than "no."
I'm not sure if you are criticizing the developers for no response, but if you are I think it's very unfair. There are a TON of suggestions on this forum and the devs probably have better things to do than critique every idea posted. There's some tension between your points, they don't necessarily contradict, but wanting the developers to engage in many/most/more/all discussions giving in depth details even when they are somewhat clear, and wanting the developers to work more when the platform, as it seems to be your opinion, is "woefully behind".

"No" actively attempts to shut down more discussion on what could be helpful. It is different than "no engagement required."
I disagree. "No" does not shut down discussion, and I highly doubt Stef was trying to thwart any beneficial things that could come from a debate. I completely disagree with the bolded section, the only thing I think No shuts down is debate about whether the company will do it, and that won't be helpful. It's one thing to say they need more evidence, it's another to say they were trying to shut down helpful discussion. Seriously, just think about that phrase, and try to believe it.

Just stating something with no justification is worse than nothing in every way I can possibly imagine.
As most people seem to agree, no justification was needed. It seemed obvious.

Anyways, you asked "will the leaderboards be reset" and he said "no". What part of that seems bad? You didn't ask why won't they be reset, you asked whether they will be reset. No answered that question and I don't see why you want complete justification.

I'm just not buying that it was an appropriate response.
Okay, it depends what you're looking for in ShuffleIT's PR. From my point of view, your original post seemed almost like a joke, obviously flawed and kinda harsh and assuming. I can't imagine a vastly better answer than no.

I can see why Stef just answered "no" to your question, it seemed like the obvious answer. I mean, I seriously don't think anyone would want the leaderboard to be completely cleared. I agree with healthy discussion, but man, when you ask a yes or no question with a seemingly obvious answer, giving that answer seems like the right response.

About your answer to "when is it dominion" I fall back on the fact that ShuffleIT will never be perfect. Right now it really has some problems, and it for sure has big problems and things to question. But you ask for perfection. When it's December 19 and they think it's fine and they reset, what happens when they find a Stash/Upgrade/Tomb bug that is implemented wrong? Do they fix it and reset the leaderboard again?
Are you sure 3 supply piles were empty? Black Market decks, spoils, Traveller piles, etc. don't cont.

I feel like way more people would get pissed off from the leaderboard resetting then from having 1/100th of their losses be really unfair.

There are also 2 reasons that make me not like this:
1) When will you set the point when you say the game "actually emulates Dominion"? I set the point now because I think it's close enough, even better then all the mistakes we make IRL (I don't have Sauna and Avanto - does that mean I'm not playing Dominion?). If you set it at perfection, it's quite possible we'll never reach that bar. What I'm saying is we won't all agree on when the game emulates Dominion so we'll never agree on when to wipe the boards, if ever.

2) There will always be some games lost unfairly, because of general computer problems that are sure to happen. That's just life, and I don't think some bug that to be honest probably rarely happens (it wasn't caught for months) is any more of a reason to make everybody loose their progress.

That's my thoughts on the issue. I do sympathize with the issue of unfair losses but I really can't see a reason to wipe the entire leaderboard because of them. Maybe another solution?
1) App version, especially for Amazon store so I don't miss oit.

2) A better AI.

*Arena continues asking you to discard even after the last VP have been removed.
Matters with Villa, Haunted Woods, etc. So it's not a bug.

But then we were completely unable to get a game going on Kindle Fire vs. Kindle Fire.
Was it a browser problem, or the fact that they don't have a dedicated app?

EDIT: It doesn't want to load, you're right.

@ffejselur "Revenge Witch" is an inside joke referencing a certain spam post on the Dominion strategy forums. Anyway, in the setting of a middle ages / fantasy themed game, I don't see how it would be offensive (or sexist). Eventually, there should be more bots to choose from.

Seems like it would be smart to change the name if someone using the client is actually offended by it. Certainly seems better than telling them they shouldn't be offended.
Sounds like a really lame thing to be offended by, but if it's seriously a problem then it should be changed.
