Rules Questions / Re: Is '$3, $4, $5 or $6' the same as '$3 to $6'?
« on: November 19, 2018, 05:20:41 pm »
I agree: for now, their meaning is identical.

However, it's not impossible that some day Donald X. will introduce a "the next card you buy is half price" effect or similar...


I believe such and fact would be worded with rounding up to avoid such an issue

Dominion League / Season 31 - Signups
« on: October 18, 2018, 01:40:43 am »
Season 31 will run from Monday, December 10 until Sunday, January 20 and you can sign up until Wednesday, December 5 at 19:00 UTC. Signups are now closed. If you would like to sign up for next season, you can do so here.

If you are a returning player, please sign up before Sunday, December 2. Depending on space, you may be required to play a placement match or return at a lower level.

As of Season 31, we are requiring all new and returning players to join the Dominion Discord before signing up. If you arenít familiar with it, Discord is a messaging app for gamers, ideal for real-time chatting with your opponents in the League. It is a lively community of players of all skill levels with regular discussion of Dominion strategy, fun tournaments, and playful banter. It also allows you to listen to live commentary of many matches. The League has been mostly conducted over Discord in recent seasons, so this change is just making it all officially required.

Staying in the league
If you are playing in Season 30, please don't post here, but fill out the Returning form that you should have been sent in a PM. Itís also pinned in your division-specific channel in Discord.

Returning to the league
If you last played in the Dominion League some time in the past year (Seasons 25 through 29), please post a message here stating your dominion.games username, your timezone*, your Discord username (formatted like @___#___), the last season you were in, the division you played and the place you finished. If you last played earlier than that, simply sign up as if you were a new member; see below.

New to the league
Welcome to the League! To join the League, you must first have accounts on both dominion.games and the Dominion Discord. Once you have both of those, please post a message in this thread with both usernames (Discord formatted like @___#___) and your timezone*.

Please make sure to state the exact spelling of your usernames (upper/lower case, special characters, and so on). You will be placed in an appropriate division according to your rating on dominion.games as seen in the client or here. We recommend playing at least 10 rated games before the League starts so that your rating can be appropriately calibrated.

Please check the welcome thread first and read the rules to make sure you're comfortable with the format and the time it takes to play a season. If you have any questions be sure to check out the FAQ. You can also ask questions about the League at the dominionleague channel on Discord.

You will also receive a personal message from one of the league moderators within a week to confirm your signup. You must reply to this PM within the specified time frame (2-7 days, depending on how close to the signup deadline it is) or your signup will be removed. In addition, we require all players to "check in" during the first week of the season or forfeit their place. This consists of filling out a very short form to confirm that you plan to play the season that will be sent at the start of the season. If you fail to check in promptly, you could be removed.

The Google Sheet in the following post will contain all signups as they are processed by the moderators and then confirmed. Please check back again in a few days to make sure your signup was entered correctly.

*When specifying a timezone, please use one of these common examples or use the same format and look yours up in the complete list.

Cheap draw that comes with + buy and just enough actions so that you can get to Champion. Pretty great match

Dominion Articles / Re: Gear
« on: August 19, 2018, 04:35:42 pm »
I immediately thought of the comparison to Haven, rather than Moat.  How does it compare to that - what makes Gear so much more powerful despite Haven being a cantrip?

A few things:
  • Gear is significantly more flexible in that it can save 0, 1, or 2 cards.  If Haven could save 0-2 cards, I believe it would be almost as strong as Gear.
  • Gear is better in the opening, on account of drawing 2 cards.  And the opening is a substantial part of Gear's strength.
  • Gear is also much better in moneyish strategies, on account of drawing two cards.  It's pretty amazing how nicely Gear + money plays despite its modest +2 cards.
  • Saving cards goes especially well with terminal draw, because it helps mitigate the downside of drawing actions dead.
Also, Haven is a pretty good card!  And Save is super strong.  So, the saving mechanic in general is deceptively powerful.

Haven, not having the option to save 0 cards and thus making it a mandatory handsize decreaser is one of it's biggest weakness in my opinion, Haven would be a much stronger card if the setting aside was optional (it is still is pretty good though).

Late signups are now closed. Please go here if you would like to sign up for season 30.



To do so, please post a message with your dominion.games username, timezone* and, if you have joined the Dominion Discord, your Discord username (formatted like @___#___).

You will be placed in an appropriate division according to your timezone and rating on dominion.games as seen in the client or here.

If there is space for you this season, you will receive a personal message from a league moderator to confirm your signup. You must reply to this message within 24 hours or your signup will be removed.

If there is no space appropriate for you (given your level and timezone), we will instead invite you to sign up for next season! You should hear back either way by Sunday, August 5th.

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Re: Some Statistics on Ratings
« on: July 23, 2018, 03:26:10 am »
One thing that I see empirically from a few players that seem to manage to outperform their apparent skill ladder is that it seems like when the difference in level is really big (15+ at least I think) players seem to manage to outperform their expectation. There were a few people that seemed to manage to ladder effectively by only playing far weaker opponents (even without board rigging).

Things were starting to get a bit messy to find so I decided to make this, might be good to add to the first post.

Done, thanks very much.

You're welcome. And thanks for creating these great lists! :)

Some people seem to be getting the wrong impression from this list.  Allow me to clarify something: Ruined Market is a bad card.  All of the Ruins are bad.  That is all.


This is very much true! I added a disclaimer in the end in case it ends up giving more people the wrong impression.
