Well, I'm not trying to quit an addiction here, I'm just quitting something that I never really feel like doing, anyway.
You're also making sure to tell us all.

Well, yeah. This is the forum for talking about Dominion, so I'm talking about Dominion, specifically the things that I think about it right now.

I interpret "why I'm quitting" announcements as a valiant attempt to combat the inherent response bias in a community almost exclusively consisting of feedback from the people who have remained within it.

Currently I have this thing where I enter the URL for Dominion Online, then remember my subscription is expired, then enter the URL for War of Omens.  Sorry Stef :(

Also you probably are an expert if you buy two bureaucrats early.

For #3, the solution is not to add a deck tracker; but to prevent people from accessing the full log during the game. Deck tracking is supposed to be a mental exercise in Dominion.

Then that's even worse.

There's already an excellent deck tracker, works for any game too:

The entire point of the rule forbidding looking through the discard is exactly so that players won't waste everybody else's time by constantly doing it. I guess it would be nice to have the ability to use that house rule in Dominion Online, but I think the people clamoring for it are the ones most likely to abuse it and slow games way down.

To be fair (and in spite of my earlier joke), having a deck tracker with all info easily accessible would eliminate the "takes too long" issue.

If you're ever thinking about using a semicolon, don't. Just don't. I promise you you don't need it.

And if you do need it, then it should probably be an em dash instead. Much punchier.

Thanksgiving pot and food haze.

Also it's been super funny to read after the fact.
