Dominion General Discussion / Re: Game Selection
« on: June 19, 2011, 03:33:51 pm »
Yeah I just wanna be clear I dont deny auto matches based on rank and only do it because sometimes Im not in the mood to play a colony game or another card that will totally dictate the game (chapel, tournament). What game I wanna play really just depends on the mood im in or how much time I have.

I have never played Dominion offline so im thinking this might not be in the spirit of the game as you wouldnt normally deal out a deck and then redraw because someone didnt like it?

So I guess my question is: Is this bad etiquette on my part? Does it really bother people or is it just mildly annoying?

Ive always used the auto matcher to get games and I end up declining fairly often because I dont enjoy some decks. Anyone else do this or do you just take what comes?

Don't use auto match then... I realise I am having a go at you (and others) with my comments here but it really is very frustrating to use auto match and have players decline you.

Basically if you want to play with/without certain cards and against players of a certain skill level you can do this manually. It is really very frustrating to be declined once and then be matched against the very same player straight away (even worse when they accept the 2nd one..).

Perhaps the automatch interface could be improved, but until it is I would ask players to either accept the luck of the draw or not to use automatch.

I really dont get this view. What is so frustrating about waiting 5 seconds for a new deck/opponent and why would accepting the second one be even worse?

I do agree the interface could be improved tho,  I would like to see an option to block ppl from inviting you as some people like to invite everyone in the room to a game and that is annoying.

Mostly card games these days. Poker (found dominion off a poker site), spades, gin, etc. I use to play a ton of Guild Wars and Champions but havent in a few years.

Puzzles and Challenges / Re: Potential Puzzle: Buying every card

+1000 points in 10 turns and almost the entire board gone (some curses and coppers left). No perfect shuffle!

Obviously not a solution to this puzzle, but this was fun ;D

Smugglers AINEC. Pretty annoying when someone is leaching off your buys.

The only positive is that a lot of the people who abuse smugglers end up bloating their deck too much IME.

Rules Questions / Who goes first?

I was reading the First Player Advantage thread and WanderingWinder made a post saying how people that win more often go second more often and im wondering how iso determines turn order.

In chess, the first player has an advantage.  Same in Magic, billiards, horse racing and Dominion.  In poker the person who goes last has a distinct advantage.  I don't think it is an innate problem in any of these because in the long run, over many trials, the player with more skill will win more often in whichever position they begin in.

Right and sometimes it shows peddlers, sometimes its provinces, sometimes its grandmarkets.. it seems random. I wanted to know if there was anywhere you could view the different cards you have bought all of.

Sorry about the confusion, my wording probably sucks.

When you view a profile it seems to just show random badges, is there anyway to see all the badges you have received?

Also, is there anywhere to view all of the badges available.


Love the site btw 8)
