I agree completely that ELO does not reflect the skill of a player. However, I think the "skill" of a player could also be recognized when that player has played lots of games and crawled his way up to a high ELO score by consistently winning some games, AND choosing to go for 2nd spot in situations when it was clearly unfeasible to finish 1st, and by choosing to lose the minimum amount of ELO points this way. I think there is something to be said about that kind of tenacity.
But you have really made me think about this strategy since it can indeed result to boring, one-sided games for all. I have experienced that myself quite a few times. And I agree that the best games are those when all players have equal chances and are a real challenge to each other, like you said. So I guess with that in mind, I could reevaluate my motives for making ELO score my priority and I could start playing more for the fun of playing itself, instead of being focused so much on ELO all the time. But I think this will be a challenge for me since I have been playing with these motives for such a long time and worked so long and hard these past years for a reasonable high ELO score (I'm currently around 1180).........
I think people should just play the way they want to play, for whatever reasons those may be, let other people do the same, and not judge other players for playing for different motives then they do themselves. Some people like to play for nothing more than the fun of playing, and other's get a kick out of reaching a spot on the ELO leaderboards. I'm not sure yet which of these I want to be. But what you said here sure has given me reasons to reconsider my motivations for playing this game and for this I'm grateful.
To answer your question, no. The Intrigue Progress Card states, "You may displace one of your opponent's knights, without using a knight of your own. The knight must be on an intersection connected to one of your ROADS or lines of ships." So your opponent has to put down a road on the board that would connect him/her to your knight directly.
It doesnt have to do with the number of cards you have . This has happened to me several times no matter how many cards I have . Even when I have played the knight I didn’t get any resources from the opponent. Every update solves one problem and creates 3 new ones .
So, dear @administrators , what do we have here??
Other people noticing that your random number generator is faulty??
You see... the problem is not that these things happen.
It's the frequency with which they happen that you don't realise how high is.
How many testimonies you need to accept that your code is wrong??
Realistic gravity dice... the best solution to make everyone happy and remove risks of buggy results.
Only illogical people would say no to that.
To smoothen the transition to the looming update 1.6.0 we already updated the servers a couple of days ago. Since then you can already see the rewards of the upcoming new "seasons game mode" which in the first season will be these asia pieces.
They won't be directly purchasable for the foreseeable future.
Once the game itself is updated it should also remove the "View in shop" button. This is unfortunately an unintended side effect of the earlier server update.
Thank you very much for your message and have a great day!
Alles in allem sind die Würffelzahlen hier wirklich verrückt.....
Ich habe heute in einem Spiel fast jedes Mal eine 7 gewürfelt, und die anderen auch munter. So schlimm war das früher nicht. Ätzende Zahlen!!!
