I just played my first game of Dominion is months and I won pretty convincingly. After the game I said my customary "gg" and clicked done but not before seeing my opponent say "no". I'm glad I didn't catch what he was about to say after that.

Oooh! A return to the online etiquette debate. I've heard a number of people say that they consider it poor form to say "gg" as the winner before the loser says "gg." Personally, I would not be offended, but I have changed my behaviour so as to avoid causing offense to others.

I say it even if I lose, but yeah I'm not going to get into that whole debate.

No, you say bg when you lose to me (which is always), and act all unhappy.

I think we'd be far better off without "gg" (and "glhf" for that matter). But I recognize that "gg" is here to stay, so here's how I use it.

If I lose a game, I will say "gg" usually followed by "Well played." In this case, "gg" means "Thanks for playing this game with me".
If I win a game and my opponent says "gg" and doesn't immediately leave, I will say "gg" back. In this case, "gg" means "Thank you for not leaving right after saying "gg".
In rare cases, if a game has been extremely close and interesting, I will say "gg" even if I have won. In this case, "gg" means "That was a good game."
In very rare cases, I will say "gg" even if none of the above apply. In these cases, "gg" means "That's right, fuckwad! I beat your goddamn bog-standard Minion enigne! How does that taste, you incredible asshole!?"

EDIT:  I also say it right before I ragequit. Sort of a courtesy so they're not caught off-guard when I ragequit.

How you end up feeling when your opponent buys as much VP as possible even though he already bought the game winning card:



Way to rub it in, Desean.

I say gg when I ride my bike. When I am happy. When the day feels too long.

Mmm, gg is starting to feel like a female-exclusive hygiene product.

This thread. This post:

I was meaning nothing other than being entirely random (see the thread title).  I've never actually done the "first post" thing before, except in jest.

Hey, everything but that last one is what I do!  My best story is after winning through pure tournament luck, I said "I feel like I shouldn't say gg..." and he replied "agreed." and left.

Hrm, according to this, Statistics >> Mafia

http://www.cracked.com/article_21940_5-mathematical-strategies-dominating-popular-kids-games_p2.html

Grain of salt because, I mean, it's Cracked... but I think the point may well be correct.  Obviously this ignores all of the extra roles and stuff you crazy Mafia-ers... Mafiators?  Whatever... that you do.

Nope, that's just nonsense. Scumhunting is always at the very worst the same as random lynch, which is what they are suggesting. How much better than random lynch it actually is I don't think is very much, but it is still better.

EDIT: I went and read the rest of the article. The one about Memory might have been interesting if they actually explained it, but instead they said "AAHHHH! MATH IS SCARY!"

I got LBP3 free with my PS4.  It's cool if you like kids platformers.  It does have a minecraft mode if you like that.

I was never an fps guy, but now all I do is play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

The problem with the strategy they're suggesting is that all scum has to do is kill the people lower on the list than them, so it's not just a matter of making sure the last person is town. Suppose you have a game with 2 mafia and 7 town- in order for the "random list" to result in a town win, both of the mafia players have to be in the first four players on the list, which gives very good odds for mafia. Picking someone random every day might be more successful, but I think most setups are meant to be balanced that randomness works out at least slightly in scum's favor.
