Dominion Isotropic / Re: Most contentious isotropic exchanges

"Become" might be the wrong word here; that chat log looks pretty resentful right from your response to the Embargo play.
Eh, I disagree. If someone sitting next to me embargoed the golds, I would have said the same thing. There's no resentment, it's just an unusual, dastardly move that warrants a "really" -- though, in hindsight, I suppose that adding an "xD" face would have helped convey my tone of voice.

All this focus on me is misplaced. I responded in anger, yes, and I've owned up to it -- but isn't anyone curious about his choice of insults? For one thing, if you take a long time to make a move, is it really an insult if you take the same amount of time in bed? Or did he mean the occasional 10-15 seconds I'd take to complete a turn, thereby implying some kind of problem with premature ejaculation? If so, well, isn't it a bit odd to allege that someone is super slow playing dominion to being super quick in the sack? It's a terrible comparison for his objective. The second bit is ridiculous too, but not on the same scale.

*closes eyes, furrows eyebrows* I sense I am not making any friends with this thread. Listen, I'm more than willing to acknowledge and laugh at my own failings, so long as I don't feel as though someone has me on trial. If Lopoas joined the discussion, I hope he'd be able to laugh at himself too.

It's worth noting that I honestly can't tell from your post which of the 2 players you actually are. All I see is a log of 2 very rude people both being jerks to each other, neither whose screenname matches the one listed in your profile. There's no way to tell from the exchange which of those players would think to complain about the other one.
Ha, I don't believe you. *Edit: I should say, I find that hard to believe. It seems clear to me and to other people.

This thread was meant for iso discussion, yes, buy if we have already tried this twice and failed, I don't see the point in trying again.

Wat was your point in posting this? To make us avoid that person? If it was, well, we have just as much of a reason to ignore you. For a complaint? Was that realy necessary?
The main point is that it's interesting. Conflicts are automatically intriguing. It was also a novel experience. I've been playing on iso for the last 6 months, and this is the only time anything remotely like this has happened.

I shared this partially out of sheer incredulity but I'm also interested in reading about similar experiences. I'm not harming anyone by posting about this, so I can't see how "necessity" comes into the equation.

Ultimately, you don't have to read about it if you don't want to.

What is the point of this? Contentious encounters on iso are unfortunate but complaining about them here doesn't help much. And you admit that you were rude yourself in reaction. Yeah your opponent was super rude and inappropriate, but seriously? This isn't really needed.
We already have threads on this, and they didn't turn out well. Also, you were just as rude as him IMO, so I do not see the point in this.
I don't understand your objections. What's the problem with talking about isotropic experiences on a board dedicated to isotropic discussion? Why wouldn't talking about these encounters help more than, say, keeping quiet about them? Must my hands be clean in order to speak? I really don't get it.

This was a first for me. I'd like to note at the start, really, I'm not slow at all. Some people want to play dominion on a chess clock set for 60 seconds -- that's neither normal nor expected. I did become resentful as you can see below. Contentious.

 1:57 Lopoas: .
*Embargos golds
 1:59 Moist von Lipwig: really
 1:59 Lopoas: slow as fuck
 2:02 Moist von Lipwig: go fuck yourself? :]
 2:04 Lopoas: wow
 2:04 Lopoas: the time it takes you to think
 2:04 Lopoas: is probably the time it takes you to ejaculate
 2:04 Lopoas: go to
 2:04 Lopoas: read
 2:05 Lopoas: and then come back and play with the pros
 2:05 Lopoas: you are a loser
 2:05 Moist von Lipwig: lol
 2:05 Moist von Lipwig: im going to sit here and surg the web
 2:05 Moist von Lipwig: surf even*
 2:05 Moist von Lipwig: that ok with you? cool
 2:13 Lopoas has returned to the lobby.

Still down. Rats! Was I right about the power supply?
Dominion has become an established part of my bar prep routine -- hopefully it's back up by Monday.

Sounds like the power supply... *prepares for extended downtime

Goko Dominion Online / Re: Where's the official app?

So I was looking on the funsockets website at the Careers section and noticed an entry for a Java developer, so I'm guessing the back-end is written in Java.  I've had my website up for a while now (, and the server side is written in Java, the front-end is done with html, and there is a mobile version of the site. Similar to isotropic it is just running on a computer at my house. However I've noticed that isotropic is much more responsive, and can handle a lot more users than my website, so hopefully the people at funsockets have done a better job at developing a solution that can scale.  Anyway just thought people might be interested since the official version will probably be using similar technologies.
Wow! Great job with this. It will take a while for me to get used to, but so far its been a lot of fun.

Website didn't load, so I found this forum -- which actually turned out to be a mistake, because the more I read about the game the more I want to play. Hi! Nice to meet you.

I tried that other site - it's slow & I couldn't tell what was happening. I may try to play carcassonne though - but not right now. Nope, now all I want to know is whether I can follow the server status on twitter. xD
