@ -Stef- and SCSN:
Congratulations! And thank you. I am so glad that two people who really care about Dominion have stepped up and taken responsibility for giving this great game the online implemtation it deserves. Here's to a brighter Dominion future.

Side note: I am saddened by the tone of a lot of the comments in this thread. I honestly thought we were a bit better than this. IMO we should be offering support and encouragement instead of quibbling over pricing structures before they are even properly up and running. This is two of our own with long track records of positive contributions to the community.

Who would have thought the guy named Cactus is a softie.

I thought the comments about pricing were mostly constructive.

I think most are, but some are a bit toxic.

...the feeling that you're actually playing a card game ...
I consider that very important as well. I have good hopes we will be able to go the extra mile there.

So we finally get manual shuffling by moving the cursor? :)

With sparkles!

Interesting news.  I'm trusting you to give us what we need, not what we want.

At some point I will also disappear as a player, just not yet.

That's the saddest thing I've ever heard...

...wait, do you mean just in the league?  Because that isn't nearly as sad.

Did you engage some hip consulting firm to come up with your company name?

We started out with Shuffle Luck. Everybody that wasn't into Dominion turned out to associate that name with casinos. And then my sister came up with Shuffle iT.

Also, everyone into Dominion would have assumed we'd all have to build our own program.

To be sung on the Tavern mat:

The Great King Theory to us hath decreed
That we work together, no enemies
Instead, A Decline in Civility
Hath rock'd this place with wars of infamy


Old King Theory was weary of fighting
The blood of enemies upon his crown
He picked up a quill and began writing
And laid his legend'ry Banhammer down

He wrote of the law, of tales and stories
He sent off the transcripts to his Envoy
The regulations of written glories
For his mighty Empire to enjoy

The Great King Theory to us hath decreed
That we work together, no enemies
Instead, A Decline in Civility
Hath rock'd this place with wars of infamy


There were many people who grumbled and such
About unfair taxation upon them
Three dollars a month was just way too much
King Theory and his words they now comdemn'd

King Theory sent mages forth to dispel
The wrath of his people, but then alas
Stef and SCSN were attack'd and fell
At the hands of the people, middle-class

The Great King Theory to us hath decreed
That we work together, no enemies
Instead, A Decline in Civility
Hath rock'd this place with wars of infamy


The Great King Theory was very saddened
Wracked with sorrow, he prayed to the God X
He was told that he must take up his weap'n
The Banhammer to take what was annex'd

The people saw their king, The Great Hamm'r stung
All the hedonist youths, who curs'd and ran
Ban! Ban! With The Great Hammer, Theory swung
And punish'd them all with ban upon ban

The Great King Theory to us hath decreed
That we work together, no enemies
Instead, A Decline in Civility
Hath rock'd this place with wars of infamy

Yah. I really hope you don't stop playing Dominion just because you own and created the new client. I can understand not playing in tournaments though since some might see that as a conflict of interest.

The only downside I can think of is that now even more people will say that the league is rigged.  ;) Good luck to both of you!
You are just being hilarious, but obv. if there's an official league then staff will not be allowed to participate.

Yeah, this was of course a joke, I tend to expect that people will play fair as a default.

I also hope you guys don't stop making videos just because you're not in the league. Maybe you can have some videos showcasing new or upcoming features in the client or something.

I hope Stef doesn't completely quit playing Dominion at all. I want him to be happy in whatever he does though, so if he is sick of Dominion because of all the headaches, I fully support that. The point of games is to have fun. If you're not having fun, why play? I remember this thing written by Jsh about not having fun with Dominion, and taking a break, which really opened my eyes and actually helped me become a better player and person. I was so worried about winning, that I lost sight of the fun involved, and I made careless errors instead of relaxing and enjoying the game.

That being said, I think he just meant the League.

I thought of something, Stef/SCSCN, can you please, please, please have an option to allow the Base Art cards version of basic treasures and victory cards. I prefer them much more when I play irl. I think they look a lot better than a bunch of giant numbers.

The beauty of computers is that you could be playing a game together, each with your preferred art style on the basic cards.

Personally I prefer the art versions.

I remember when Goko/Funsockets was announced, and how ridiculous it seemed back then that an entire software company was being built to take the place of something one guy had built in his spare time. They even had a VP of Monetization! Fast forward several years and now some people are concerned that there's NOT a bloated software company running the show.

While I can understand people being skeptical, and even a little skittish when faced with the prospect of Yet Another Online Dominion iteration, there are more than enough success stories out there of small teams (or individuals) creating great software that I'm not worried.

Aye, I've said it one year ago in the "payment models" thread, and I'll pester everybody once more now, but I think having personalized, buyable/winnable fashionable alternate art versions of some cards would be awesome. Like, while Coppers are in my deck, they feature kittens. Or Adventurers feature hobbits. The possibilities are endless. It could be confusing and annoying if overdone, but think about the envy of your opponents! (since it doesn't affect other people's decks, it wouldn't be too bad - you'd always be playing with the art you're familiar with)

How would your opponents know?  Like, when you play a Copper from your deck, it shows up a Kitten in the playspace in the GUI?

Yep, that's pretty much it. Revealing cards too. And when they pass the card to you with Masq, you see the alt art slowly fading in front of your eyes.

Well, isn't this cool then:

* We intend to have different clients for different people. One will look as pretty as we can make it, one will be sober, with minimal images and mostly text.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

On the topic of changing card art, maybe now we can get the official art for stash.

I was browsing around the wiki and stumbled upon an interview-ish thing ednever did with Jay of RGG back in 2012, and found this, regarding a feature planned for Goko:

If you are playing against someone and they drop off for whatever reason, the AI will take over.

Any plans to implement this feature?

I like it better when I don't have to play a bot who might have a small chance of beating me somehow when the opponent quits.
