...and then you try playing an engine against Rebuild, lose because you're not executing it well, and conclude that Rebuild is strong indeed.

Not everyone is on Discord or gets crushed by Dan Brooks playing an engine against Rebuild.

Have you found a coach yet?

For the discord bot, Cave-o-Sapien is able to get the kingdoms of any game (even unrated). Maybe there's a better way to do this that doesn't rely on grabbing games for Woodcutter.

It's not working at the moment due to the Renaissance release. But I think that ceviri is about to fix that.

I thought that you could pay off debt in B1 Black Market, but you can't play any other treasures afterwards?
(other than in non-standard ways like with the Storyteller that you bought in that Black Market and that gets played with Innovation)

In other words, the transition from B1 to B2 is not something that needs to happen on an empty stack like moving from A to B. But once you buy something / repay debt, you can't play Treasures / use Coffers anymore.

How do you calculate your wins and losses from these numbers??
You can check Scavenger for your past games and the record: http://dominion.lauxnet.com/scavenger/

I've already had a case when I felt that Citadel was a downside, because I couldn't play my trasher only once.

« on: November 11, 2018, 02:44:30 pm »
Yes, it could only be that the autoplay does "end actions" and "end buy phase" for you when that is a thing that you're allowed to do. I don't think that's a lot of effort saved very often.

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Re: how do i play with a bunch of new cards
« on: November 10, 2018, 01:46:11 pm »
I assume that you want to play against non-bots, because against bots there's everything you need by selecting the appropriate "kingdom".

One way would be set a bunch of old cards unfamiliar and search for a practice game - not sure how long it takes to find an opponent there.

Or you set up a table, use the settings that you want (e.g. at least 1 Project and 2 Renaissance cards) and wait for someone to join it - typically that doesn't take long (maybe use +/-10 for levels requirement).

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Why Peasant Will Be On My Ban List
« on: November 10, 2018, 08:25:57 am »
Some cards tend to lead to snowballing and one player eventually crushing the other one. As a result, Peasant, Tournament, Ambassador and King's Court all have high resign rates. But that doesn't necessarily mean that they favour lower skill. Better players could make it more likely that they are the ones who come out ahead. (Tournament and Ambassador seem to help the weaker player a bit; Swindler and Chariot Race are the cards that seem to help weaker players the most, where weaker still means good player > level 50)

If your Chapel misses on a normal board and you are 1-2 turns behind in the end, it might feel better, but the chance of you actually winning the game are reduced to a similar extent as when Peasant misses.

Yes, I suppose I could suck with Peasant. I think I am perfectly competent with Peasant. Markus will probably have stats on me though that could prove otherwise.
I could look that up, but it would only be around 15 Peasant games that I have for you. So probably, there's not going to be anything statistically significant there - unless you really suck and lost like almost all of them.

Peasant stands out as one of the cards that favour the better player the most in my sample of logs.

If you usually beat your opponent in 60% of the games, you'll win 63.5% of the Peasant boards.
(Page also favours the better player but not as much, Chapel on the other hand makes the weaker player win more than expected.)

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Pirate Ship + Capitalism
« on: November 09, 2018, 05:19:46 am »
Yes,those were not the best boards for Pirate Ship/Capitalism. I tried to go for the rather simple thing on one and it didn't work. Treasurer makes it actually worse there because opponent can gain back the Treasures from trash (and all Treasurers at the same time).

Guardian shut it down on the other board. Small sample of course and I guess it will be more relevant on other boards - compare to Knights maybe.

The scary thing in general is that all your economy becomes vulnerable. But if you go heavily for Pirate Ships, you'll still first thin the opponent's Coppers.

Rules Questions / Re: A Couple of Buy Phase Clarifications
« on: November 06, 2018, 10:21:43 am »
I think the answers are:

1) You should be able to spend coffers before executing Storyteller (unless you've bought something, like a Storyteller played with Innovation).

2)a) You can't spend more Coffers after buying something from Black Market in the buy phase.
b) But you can play more Treasures as the rulebook talks about playing Treasures before you use the "normal" buys.

15
Black Market will enable some serious craziness as well.
We can use coffers in the Black Market now!
Good catch - that doesn't work online yet.

16
And Rio Grande is not much bigger:

Rio Grande Games is one guy, Jay Tummelson. As he puts it, "I also do the windows."

« on: October 02, 2018, 09:02:58 am »
If I remember correctly, Mic didn't want anything related to the on-gain effect on the list, as this is the obvious thing that the two cards differ.
Surely it goes in the section "Ducatís cool ability which also interacts with: Priest, Tomb, Market Square"
Yes.  8)

Maybe that has already been fixed. At least when I load that game and buy&play Hermit, it doesn't get trashed for Madman.

« on: September 28, 2018, 07:17:24 am »
I haven't read about such problems today and trying preview vs bot gave me no problems.
Maybe check your advanced options that "Rated game" and "Practice game" are not ticked. It shouldn't be possible anymore to tick that and Renaissance, but maybe if you had that in the past and it got stored in the database, that's the result.

22
We've known what Projects look like since the start of the week.

But I don't think that it's helpful to post unwanted spoilers even if you find them. Because it potentially means that Stef has to put more effort into hiding these things - effort that would be much better spent working on other things. Or in the worst case we couldn't have these previews in the online client.

23
River's Gift can make you draw a card at the end of somebody else's turn. You don't do that when capturing the flag during an opponent's turn. (It could (would have to) be phrased "at the end of your turns" of course.)

24
And that's not even talking about the on-gain effect, which seems particularly good in the opener.  Usually I don't like to get terminal-draw/terminal in the opener because collision rates are so high.
Also opening together with a non-terminal card is much nicer if you have that Villager for emergencies: you wouldn't want to open Smithy with Page, but Silk Merchant with Page seems ok.
