A monthly fee would be kind of absurd, imo. A one time flat fee makes sense.

Having peoples ladder rank listed on CR?

Either on each persons home page or preferably next to their name in the 'Record By Opponent' table and on their home page.  Would love to be able to filter my results vs rank.  8)





I feel like Ive seen this asked somewhere else but I cant find it so I apologize if it has already been answered.

Pretty sure im a huge dog to most you guys (it seems like a lot of this forum is top 100 and im barely top 250) but im in.

Or worse, Golem --> Ambassador --> Province. Yes, I just did that recently. Good times.

Or to get you in a real dilemma: Golem -> TR -> Ambassador -> Province
(Give your opponent 2 or return 1 and give your opponent 1)?

head asplode

(im giving one and returning one most times but its obviously game dependent)

Oh and just something else to think about. If you have both TR and KC and only 2 action cards make sure that you go TR into KC so you get two plays of three instead of three plays of two.

I guess thats kind of obvious but ive made that mistake in the past and figured id throw it out there.

All the controls below the lobby have no effect on automatch games, and all the automatch controls have no effect on proposed games. Added to the OP, along with info about how Isotropic detects drheld's point tracker.

I think the point tracker is different. If I have the PT at the bottom checked I cannot adjust the PT at the top.

Ok, hmm. I just logged into isotropic to test this, the bottom PT was unchecked and I was able to toggle the top PT. As soon as I check the bottom PT I am locked into 'require' on the top with no way to uncheck the bottom or toggle the top. I've tried logging out and switching accounts and Ive used 'play without logging in' but nothing helps.

edit: im using chrome also

10
Yeah when I first started playing the log was always there. In my experience since he added the point tracker options it only shows up ~10% of the time now.

Did you use auto match or did you propose a game? I dont use propose that often but you need to propose a game for that to apply, iirc.

And all i can say about the point tracker is that if i dont check the bottom one my score wont show up in place of the exit and FAQ.

Yeah im opening Potion/Warehouse to get the familiars and then Im only buying treasure and either a coppersmith or a mint (and more warehouses as needed). Seems kinda standard tho, I feel like im missing the point of the OP.

WW,

I think there is a time limit on editing posts

 
I have nothing to back this up with but it just feels stronger when I am spamming ambassador constantly opposed to having the early extra treasure. And im buying a second ambassador 95% of the time if my opponent buys 2 early.

Hello altogether,

I'm new here, though already reading here for some time, so I don't know whether this qualifies for a game altering hand, since the game was pretty much over already, but it nevertheless surprised me a bit.
But, well, Cities, King's Courts and Bridges, you probably know what this means.

Yup, reyk is right. All I had to do was buy a curse or expand the duchy. I was in cruise control and didnt really think twice about trashing the gold, I mean expanding gold > duchy 99% of the time.

Nag was just as surprised as me and said he would have done the same thing.

Trash this card. When an opponent plays an attack card you may choose to trash their entire hand. You gain all remaining curses. Must be at least 5 curses remaining for this card to work.

Game Reports / Game Altering Hands
« on: June 21, 2011, 11:44:51 pm »
I think we should have a thread for hands that totally alter the rest of the game. Its fun to see the sick chains people pull off that maybe dont deserve their own thread. Mods if you feel like this thread is what the whole forum is for then feel free to lock it up!


So maybe the hand ends the game or maybe its a soul crushing blow to your opponent (or you). Maybe its a bonehead move that cripples you when you should have won. Maybe you just pulled off the sickest KC+Bridge combo ever.

Whether you wanna whine/brag/make fun of yourself lets post some hands that define the rest of the game (or ends it). :)

I offer two: a solid tournament draw (im willing to bet someone has pulled all the treasures) and one ridiculous ending.

« on: June 21, 2011, 11:32:08 am »

and even if you decline one game in a hundred because you don't like that set, you're simply not playing random games


It's random, it's just another distribution ;P


Pretty much this.


Im not trying to set a deck towards something that benefits me its just that at certain times I dont feel like playing a possession game or a chapel game or a tournament game or maybe I dont have the time for a colony game (this is probably a lie, I have no life). Thats why I have such a hard time understanding why people are so against people denying matches. I mean if you deny someone it almost always rematches you to the same person with a new deck within seconds. I can understand if it happens over and over vs the same person but once or maybe twice doesnt really seem like a huge issue.


I appreciate everyones input and it seems that even tho some people dont approach the game the same way, no one really has a problem with it other than they wont play me  ::)
