Love Goko except for the constant lagging and occasional crashes.

Is Goko running smoothly (no lagging) for anyone?
Yes, no problems here with Opera.

Weird. I'm using chrome too and it lags so much that I have not wanted to play anybody online. I've only been playing AI opponents. Basically every other turn or so the board will freeze up for 5-10 seconds or so and then resume. And I've tried this on several computers using Chrome, Firefox and Explorer.

+'s
Card art
Dark Ages
Relatively quick gameplay if your opponent knows what they are doing
Relatively short wait for a game if you find an opponent who you enjoy playing with and agree to matches
Player base that is growing in competitiveness
It is completely free and I am finding that many people I play with own all the sets
"Relatively short wait for a game if you find an opponent who you enjoy playing with and agree to matches" is about as backhanded a compliment as I can imagine.  The wait time if you have an opponent to play multiple games with ought to be basically zero.

How is the wait time if you just want a competitive game against a random person?  For Iso it's ~10 seconds.  My limited experience on Goko says that it's a lot more.  Would those who play more disagree?

I definitely see how that can sound back-handed.  But compared to 3 months ago when I would log on to Goko only to wait 20 minutes to end up in a game playing base dominion, things are moving alot quicker now.  It is better than it used to be (and dark ages is fun).

Nothing is faster than Iso at the moment.  No argument there.

For me, the two things that need to be addressed asap are the lack of automatch and the lack of any sort of misclick protection.  I ended a turn the other day with 10 coin + 1 buy due to an accidental click...and it was happy to let me.

Also, relatively quick gameplay?
Relative to what?
The only thing I can compare it to is iso, and iso games tend to take less time, I'm pretty sure.

I am going to guess that is relative to IRL play.

Those of you with no lagging, are you solely playing against other humans or are you also playing against AI opponents? I'm thinking that maybe the problem only occurs against AI opponents?

I only play humans. Some players do seem to take a while though, so maybe on their end, they are lagging. I find playing against the AI rather predictable.

Playing both and noticing very little lag. Using Google Chrome...

Played two games against humans this evening for the first time. Loads of lagging again. Major annoyance.

I've had no real lag issues.  A couple of bumps against bots before the most recent patch.

At first I thought this was satire referencing RL play. I laughed. XD

I run the latest version of Chrome and it still lags.

However, I just discovered that there's no lagging on my laptop I use for work. So maybe the issue really is the graphics card on my stationary PC. Crazy.

Finally caved in and bought the expansions on Goko. Been playing a lot against the bots. Sometimes they can be really stupid had a (KC + Apprentice game and two of them soon trashed the whole hands, bought copper, and then trashed in the next turn...) but generally they put up a fair challenge and its even faster than playing against humans on iso...

Would it be possible for Goko to release an API so that people can program their own client? I'd gladly pay a bit extra for isotropical minimalism.

So... you want to pay them money... to give you fewer features?  I thought Dilbert was just an exaggeration.

I'm sure many people will agree that several things they call "features" are in fact "distractions."  Animations come to mind, for instance.

Played some more on my laptop. Still no lagging. Amazing.

However, I don't want to play on my laptop, I want to play on my stationary and it annoys me that I can't figure out why it lags.

My stationary has a faster CPU than my laptop.

My stationary has a shitty Radeon HD 5450 GPU (I'm not a PC gamer), but my laptop has onboard graphics, which ought to be even shittier.

I like Isotropic much better simply because the interface is so much better than goko's.
