F.DS room on (public) Goko - Outpost?
« on: January 23, 2013, 12:42:01 am »

I've been playing on goko recently, mostly because I wanted to learn the DA cards. As has been complained about in the "Match Making" thread and probably elsewhere, the matchmaking system on goko is terrible (there is no matchmaking system, and moreover the majority of multiplayer players are generally split between two rooms: Council Room and Counting House).

Most of the players on goko are new to Dominion, and not hard to beat.

From now on, I encourage other people who read f.ds and want to play multiplayer on public goko to meet in the Outpost room. If this thread gets at least 5 positive replies, I'll do so myself. I'll sit there playing against bots if I have to.

Okay, whenever I am on, I will go to the Outpost room, but I won't hang in there too long... I am not a fan of playing bots.

EDIT: But, why not meet in the Secret Chamber instead? That seems to have more of an iso connotation than Outpost.

Secret Chamber is the name of the room on isotropic for playing prearranged games in. I thought about this for a while, and decided I liked Outpost better, it being an outpost of f.ds.

I see where you're going, and your logic, but Secret Chamber has isotropic history behind it which would make it easier for members to remember to go there.

Too bad Goko made Council Room the one at the top of the list. Even so, I like the idea, no matter what room ends up being used :P

I wonder if it would be possible to make exclusive rooms. Like, Goko could have a guilds sort of thing (like on BGG, not referring to the next expansion), and the guild could have its own, members-only room. Or you could have the option to let non-members enter, but it would be clear to them it was the Dominion Strategy room, so it could encourage them to check out the site.

I'm sure there are other cool things that could be done with a guilds feature, but this private room thing is all I've got for now. Also I'm sure we prefer they focus on getting all the cards implemented and bug-free (among other things) first :P

Yes, from reading their recent responses on GetSatisfaction, they have a lot on their plate, so this would be a low priority among everything else that really needs to be done.

I'll go into the Outpost room when I want to record a video.

I already wanted to suggest the same. So I'm fine with either room although I wanted to suggest Secret Chamber too.

i will check the Outpost room from now on if players are there. I would have preferred secret chamber as well.

I like Outpost. Secret Chamber was for pre-arranged games anyway, and I don't think this really qualifies.

Worked already well yesterday. I played a bunch of games against Watno and Beyond Awesome and loppo were also there.
I think this was a really good idea RiemannZetaJones.

Let's just hope we get a good automatch option soon so that this isn't necessary anymore.

Well this kinda serves a differnt purpose than matchmaking. It makes you play against people you know in way, while matchmaking would make you play against people with similar skill level.
Of course, people who frequent Strategy forums tend to have a decently high skill level, so it helps in that regard too.
But most of the people I join in random games are quite good though (which might coincide with players hosting all-cards-games tending to be more experienced than others).

Well, I went to the outpost and two people in there that I have never heard off!

Is this some sort of joke again, like when all my classmates told me that the senior prom had moved to that old chemical plant outside of town?!

It's perfectly plausible that there could just have been some random people in the Outpost room. There are often 1 or 2 people hanging out in the rooms that aren't Council Room or Counting House.

Yeah, they were playing each other so clearly friends pre-arranged.

I wasn't complaining that I didnt know the people in there, just that nobody else from here was in there.

I take such things very personally, I may go to bed to have a little cry now.

You just trying to make Ozle feel worse now? Telling him that you guys had fun without him is kind of rude.
