I waited all of 30 seconds to upgrade to the gold package. This is exciting!

No email yet...for people whose account successfully transferred over, did your stats and rating transfer, as well, or just the username? I'm wondering if I'd be better off just creating a new account rather than keep waiting.

It will import your rating from the latest isotropish leaderboard (gokosalvager.com/leaderboard/?full=True&sortkey=level) for matchmaking purposes.

There is no leaderboard for the new version yet, it will be implemented once some initial data has been gathered.

Can we get a rough idea when the e-mails might start going out? As is it's pretty terrible since it seems matching randomly chooses one player as host then denies the game if that person happens to not have a confirmed email

In case anyone had the same problem I did:

A few hours ago Stef said on the official forum that a new version had been pushed live that fixed the e-mail confirmation not being sent issue, but nothing had changed for me. By pressing Ctrl+F5 I forced a refresh that also cleared my cache for the site, and lo and behold the verison number changed to 1.0.2 and now it's sent me my e-mail.

Hooray!

I will be checking if the above works. In the meantime though, I tried to register for the ShuffleIT forums and now am being told I cannot register multiple accounts with the same computer, despite having never received the confirmation email they claimed was being sent.

Tinier bug note: you really need a way to backtrack out of the "Sign up" main menu into the main login area.

Also, now that I know my payment method is not accepted, I am more concerned about getting access to my old MF name and its benefits.

EDIT: As the post below me says: popup appears, but no email. Wowee I feel noticed.

Same here: and on reflection that may only be because clearing cookies cleared my preference to block the thousand "you must confirm your email to host" popups

Don't forget to check your various spam folders for the email, everyone.

I know you're trying to be helpful, but I did, I have every time (many) that I have attempted an action with a confirmation email or activation code.

Sorry if this has been answered already. The email I had used to make my account is no longer active; it was from my high school. Is there any way I can continue to play Dominion?

I second these questions, and esp the ban list point - I HATED when people quitted games because they were losing, or they were unhappy that I was lucky enough to get a 5 copper hand (seriously, people resigned over that), and Ipersonally would choose to avoid playing those players again.

I don't understand this. Quitting a game that you are losing is the respectable thing to do. I have never "ragequit", per se, but if you play enough games you can tell when the game is out of reach. Resigning allows you to have a rematch with your opponent faster, or to play other people faster.

You'd probably have the most success PMing Stef or LaLight on here or on Discord.

Some people play Dominion because they enjoy playing Dominion. Not because they enjoy climbing the leaderboard. For those people, having a game suddenly end sucks.

I'm hoping there's an option to keep playing with an AI.

But you should never feel like you HAVE to keep playing a 2-player online game if you think you can't win.

Exactly. It has often happened that people have resigned without a comment and then immediately challenged me to a new game. From their perspective they think the game is over so they want to start a new one as soon as possible. But I reject, thinking "well, if you wanted to play we already had a game going! I'll find someone who wants to play instead."

I'd like general functions for "please match me against that player again" and "avoid matching me against that player again". What reasons they are used for is up to the users. There are so many reasons for preferring playing against some players against others. It could be used because you don't like the chat from someone, or because of something in real life because you know them, or because you think they play too slow or maybe so fast that you feel stressed. But also just because of a preference like for playing out games instead of resigning. So this really doesn't mean that there is necessarily anything wrong with that player, only that player one gets more enjoyment of playing against someone else.

You mean, some people play Dominion because they enjoy pointless clicking on cards without a purpose, not because they enjoy playing Dominion. For those people, having the pointless clicking suddenly end after the actual game is over sucks.

Could you please update the results screen with a line explaining why the game ended?

Edit: Email still isn't working, but I can get into a game by constantly refreshing "quick match" and if there's no pop up a game might start.

Please explain to me how winning Dominion is less pointless than playing it.

Or with a Mac...I did stumble onto a way to show card text by hovering over cards, but it didn't seem to work consistently.
