Nah, I've played against Donald on the beta and WW on iso. Donald is very chatty and plays quite a bit slower than WW. They're both exceptionally good at this game (I'd guess Donald would be top 10 on iso).

Which, hey, is sort of cool, because it means that the set is shaping up to be a lot more tactical than the ones that came before.

Off topic, but, does anyone else get the sense that WW is actually DXV?  Makes sense, right?  Sounds like him, plays the most Dominion, etc.  I mean, that sentence is vintage DXV.

>.<

That would mean you're suggesting that DXV is the most self-obsessed individual on the planet.  This would mean he's the most prolific poster on a forum about his own game.  That he has his own YouTube channel detailing plays of HIS OWN GAME.  That would be pathetic.  I always got the sense that DXV was a lot more relaxed than that.  And besides, we all know that DXV is DougZ (which would still make him self-obsessed, but eh).

Bishop got quite a boost here too I think?

I'm kind of interested in Bishop-Rats.

Same.

You say this after you beat me two out of three, first by buying a better number of Stewards and then okay the second game was close at least but I couldn't tell you why I didn't buy that last City. I guess I can claim that I'm better at multiplayer since I won the three-player game.

I extrapolated those 3 games to a thousand in my mind and you won 450 of them  ;)

Swindler becomes a heck of a lot more swingy. On one hand, it can keep dishing out pain after curses are gone, transforming coppers into ruins.

You want to talk about Swindler being swingy? Am I correct to assume that Swindler is capable of turning hard-won Mercenaries into Curses and Ruins?

And most often, it turns Shelters into nothing and actually gives your opponent +1 card if that Overgrown Estate is trashed. But, who am I kidding, Swinder is swingy and even worth playing when Shelters are out.

I find it interesting that Ambassador wasn't really mentioned. There are two interesting things about Ambassador with DA:

1. It can't return Shelters, which don't have a Supply pile. Ambassadoring a Shelter has no effect. This DRAMATICALLY weakens it.
2. It can typically return only one Ruins, and only give one to the player to your left, since the second Ruins will usually be a differently-named card.
