Dominion General Discussion / Dominion Online Championship Finals
« on: November 16, 2017, 11:16:10 pm »
At long last the field has been culled from 389 entrants down to two remaining competitors. Along the way we learned a valuable lesson: people who are good at Dominion do well in Dominion tournaments. In the end our #2 and #4 seeds face off for the crown.

This Friday night (or Saturday morning), at 3 UTC / 10 EST / 7 PST come watch Dan Brooks (2) and Mercury444F (4) compete for the Ä500 prize!

The match will be streamed at with commentary from breppert, aku_chi, and myself.

It's new expansion preview day and the forum hasn't been down at all for me, what gives?

Dominion League / Season 15 - Signups Q&A
« on: April 26, 2016, 05:03:49 pm »
Edit by assemble_me: I've put the questions/answers into a new topic to keep the other one clean

I'm not sure how Isotropish rating is calculated, but if it includes campaign games (probably not, I guess), mine might be a little inflated. About once a week I play the Goons level of the base set campaign, because there's something immensely satisfying about scoring 150 points on a hapless bot. Otherwise, my rating is probably about right.

Isotropish only includes "rated" games with exactly 2 human players.

In. I think my username there is also Drab Emordnilap, but I'm not showing on that leaderboard -- I've been playing on the new client when I play; does that not get registered?

It does not use games from the new client, there's no easy way to scrape the Making Fun logs.

You are on the full leaderboard (the default only displays players with recent activity).

Adventures Previews / Preview: Haunted Woods

Haunted Woods: Action - Attack - Duration $5
Until your next turn, when any other player buys a card, he puts his hand on top of his deck in any order. At the start of your next turn:
+3 cards

Orange is such a beautiful color, isnít it? We now have Duration technology to make your opponent miserable during their turn. Plus the card has a sweet name.

Haunted Woods reminds me of Rabble in many ways. Thereís the +3 cards, but the attack parts feel similar as well. The attack can be weak for much of the game, and thereís often ways to avoid it. Iíll let all of you talk about the different ways. But if you green without preparing your deck for a constant Haunted Woods barrage you might be in for a bad time. Itís also possible for the attack portion to be friendly interaction, letting you put good cards back on top of your deck. A lot of nice player interaction to be had in this card.

As a duration you wonít be able to play Haunted Woods as often as other card drawers, but getting +3 cards at the start of your turn is, like, the best time to get them! Sometimes people underestimate this fact.

Moat must be revealed (or Lighthouse be in play) when Haunted Woods is played to block the attack effect.

This is my first thread. Hooray!

Polk and I enjoyed our IGG games last night, and jsh suggested that a weekly series like this might be fun. So I am tentatively going to commit to doing this, although the schedule may end up being biweekly instead of weekly.

The basic idea is: we pick a card and just play random kingdoms with that card required on the board. We play games until one of us wants to stop. It's low-pressure unrated games for fun and some experimentation. But it's still a Cage Match!

Polk was interested in playing again next week at the same time, we just need another card to focus on.

Some suggestions from the chat last night:
- City
- Bishop
- Scout (of course)
- Probably more but I forgot

I would prefer to focus on cards which are medium to high strength as I think they make more sense to highlight. Scout is out, I'm afraid. A big positive is uniqueness of effect. Cards which create long games (timewise) are not so great.

I'm interested in what you guys think about this idea and what cards you would like to see.

Last night the audio was just me, but in the future I could Skype with my opponent if people like hearing that. I also think it would be good to have other people fight me in the Cage. Polk probably won't be available all the time and it adds a little variety.

I know the current timeslot (Thur at 24:00 UTC ) isn't great for Europeans unless they're night owls. Streaming earlier may not be great for Americans. Weekend streaming (say on a Sunday) might give better flexibility on timing, but of course people do other stuff on the weekends. There may be no good middle ground on this issue.

Any suggestions/feedback are welcome.
