Scavenger draws the results from the database, so you did lose that game. If I load the last decision as your opponent and buy a copper, he gets to 30 cards and wins the game. Most likely, you haven't noticed that as the game ends immediately afterwards. I would be surprised, if you actually saw a "You Win" screen.

Thanks! Makes sense now. I thought I saw a "You Win" screen but I probably just wasn't paying attention. I think I got confused when I tried re-loading the game (haven't done it before), and the game immediately ended. It's because Lord Rattington doesn't realize he should buy a Copper. It's very hard to see what happened on the last turn of the game once it ends.

Thank you, everyone, for your kindness.

This is a fantastic resource that I use with almost every session. Much appreciated.

A couple questions:

1) It seems that the Y axis labels on the ranking over time chart is rounding in an unexpected way.

2) Is there a way to see the ranking over time over a longer period?

1. Yes it was rounding a bit too aggressively (and it was truncating instead of rounding). This has been fixed now.
2. I changed it to 60 days now instead of 14. Ideally it would be configurable, and there's no reason it isn't except for the fact that I haven't done it.

I use this website all the time to see where I'm going to be after the next leaderboard update.

I think it would be helpful to have your current rank on the learderboard displayed on your page.  I know this is available elsewhere, but if you want all the ranking information in one place, that would be included.

Yeah that would be nice--it wouldn't be too hard to put the daily leaderboard position on your page. The live leaderboard would be a little tougher since (A) it's only for the top 200 right now, and (B) I have to load a lot of stuff for the live leaderboard updates so I'd have to be smart about how I do that to avoid too much server traffic.

Thanks a lot for making this tool!
Just fyi, it looks like something went wrong with the leaderboard today and a lot of players are missing.

Edit: Seems this is fixed with today's leaderboard update. Must have been a fluke.

I cache those leaderboards every day, and sometimes a partial copy gets cached. I've done some things to try to mitigate this issue, but it shows up from time to time. Usually if someone pings me on discord it's easy enough for me to clear the server cache and fix it. I'm way more active on the Discord than I am on this forum.

Looks great! I love seeing the shape of the graph over the longer time frame.

New request: would it be possible to query head-to-head matchups between any two users?

I actually implemented this a little while ago, but it's too intensive on the database because it has to search back through all of the results indefinitely in order to locate the results between two players and the database just isn't built for that (there are a lot of results! Evidently gokosalvager had a similar thing at one point, and it was removed for similar reasons.). If I do a "compare players" feature it would just be something that gives X win%'s and the like, but that's not too high on my priority list of things to do.

the database just isn't built for that

This seems like the key phrase here. It seems like it should be possible to mine this sort of historical meta data into a separate structure that IS optimized for such queries. Obviously this isn't something YOU can/should do, but it would be a cool thing to have.

3-player is actually the next thing I plan to do at this point for the site. I wish there was a noble reason, but really it's just been that I've actually recently caught myself enjoying 3-player Dominion.

No idea when I will finish it, because I haven't started. It's not that hard to do on the backend because the database stores results in such a way that I should basically just be able re-use all the two player code, but making the interface easy to toggle between 2-and-3 player will be the trickier part.

That's right, it's theoretically possible to partition/index/build to make lookups like this fast, but it isn't really practical to do so in this case. You would have to either build another index against the table or use a data store that's more optimized for these sorts of look ups, and that's too much work to make something like this possible (as well as, as you mention, largely out of my hands).

Stef had it, then whoever beat Stef got it, then whoever beat that person got it, etc.

This means that the game doesn't count for the ranking as the user has been banned.

The main leaderboard now does not show any ranking for "alt" accounts of several (high ranking) players on the main leaderboard. In a previous version, these accounts appeared but were labeled as alts and did not received numbered places on the leaderboard. Other than anagrams of "Dan Brooks", how were these identified? http://dominion.lauxnet.com/leaderboard/

Based on a discussion on Discord, by word of mouth, mostly. If you have more to report, I'm sure breppert would love to know.

Has this gone down? I've not been able to use it today or yesterday.
