Enhancing the program ! Sun, 24 May 2009 17:02
Hi there
i m not sure it s the right place to make this kind of demand but i ll post it anyway !

I was wondering if it would be possible to slightly reprogramm the game, in order for it to emit a small sound or bip or dring dring when a game starts !

It should be simple to do i guess !

I ask that because there are often people that wait several minutes for a game to start because there is none 4th player yet, so they do something else while waiting and then they don t notice when the game finally starts, resulting in more and more waiting for the other players, and sometimes in a game against unwanted bots !

So if the game could emit a small sound when a game starts, these situations could be avoided by simply reminding everybody they were waiting for a game Smile

Thanks for what you can do.

And sorry for my bad english, i just never learned how to wright it Smile

GOF Team Cup from november the 24th to december the 18th 2009

1- Organization and progress of the tournament

16 teams made up by at least 4 to at most 6 players will be distributed between 4 groups (A, B, C and D) by drawing.

First and second of each group will be qualified for semi finals.

Qualifying matches will take place on the first two weeks (from 24/11 to 04/12)

Teams of each group will meet 4 evenings per week :

On Tuesday at 20h30
On Wednesday at 20h30
On Thursday at 20h30
On Friday at 22h30

Each evening, players will play 3 games.

Semi Finals will take place between the 8th and the 11th of december.

Qualified teams will be distributed as follows :

Semi-final 1 Semi-final 2

1st group A 2nd group A
2nd group B 1st group B
1st group C 2nd group C
2nd group D 1st group D

Cup Final will take place between the 15th and the 18th of december.

The first and second of each semi final will be qualified to the Final.

2- Ranking :

1st 7 points
2nd 4 points
3rd 2 points
4th 1 point

3- Rules
Inscriptions for the cup will open on september the 1st and will close on the 15th of november.

Each team will be led by a captain who will communicate to technical direction the list of the players composing his team.
The list of players and their plays' schedules must be sent fast (before the monday's night of each tournament's weeks)

Games will be opened by a different team each day following the order of the group's drawning

team 1 on tuesday,
team 2 on wednesday,
team 3 on thursday,
team 4 on friday.

All games will be watchable by all but cards can be hidden.
It will be the best ranked player's option to show the cards or not.

Each player will only play once a week.
Only teams with more than 4 players will be allowed a substitution of player in case of absence of the planned player.

If a player is missing at the time scheduled, he will be replace after 30 minutes by a real player or a bot.

If a bot is substitute, his team will get the points won by it but for each game with a bot the team will lose two points (no matter the result of the bot).

If a player leaves a game, others should do their best to wait for his return so the game won't be distorted.

Any contender of the tournament shall prove fairness, respect and tolerance to others players whatever their tactical points of view might be.

So we can enjoy the cup and not fill the lobby nor the forums too much, it is asked to players to send Private Messages if they can't hold what they need to say.

Any improper behaviour affecting the good progress of the tournament will be punished.
Looking to the seriousness of the fault, penalties will be given : points can be cancelled, a player can be removed and eventually a whole team can be removed.

Enjoy the Dragon Cup !

Strategy for 3 vs. 1: Laggards vs. Leader Tue, 10 January 2012 17:44
What is 3 v 1?
When three losing players must rally against a clear leader in the game. The object of this scenario is to prevent or minimize the leader's chance to play his weak cards. Losing players must be highly cooperative for this strategy to work. Keeping control among the three losing players will ensure the leader will be left with more, if not, the most cards at the end of each round.

Be Aware of the Direction of Play in Each Round
Most players adopt a "weak to strong hand" style of play. Therefore, starting hands are usually weak hands, so make sure the leader is fourth at the start of each round. Ideally, rounds should start adjacently and directed away from the leader, forcing her to play against a stronger, rather than weaker hand. Losing players should defer winning the round to either of the players adjacent to the leader, so that subsequent hands start in the way described herein.

Play a Strong or Small Hand, Against the Leader
This is especially effective when the leader is second to play at the start of the round. If you don't have a strong 5 card hand, start the round with a small hand, like a single or pair. This minimizes how many cards the leader can play. Take note that often the leader will force his GOF early in order to take control of the game.

Losing Player Should Not Pass
If you are nearest to losing the game, passing is prohibitive in this strategy. Remember, there are two other players helping you stay in the game. The goal of the laggard is to get down to 7 or less cards in the round.

7 or Less Cards to the Laggard, 7 or More Cards to the Leader
Laggards can use this number as a guiding rule to playing or passing. This is the ideal configuration at the end of each round.

Know When to Take Control and When to Give it Up
This is not easy to do but hopefully your intuition will tell you know when to take control and when to pass it on to another player.

Play your Cards
This is self-explanatory, but cooperation means you must play your cards as often as you can. Your fellow laggards are not mind readers, but they can count what cards have played, so do your best to play your cards.

If done properly, this strategy is needed only for a couple of rounds if that, or until all of players are more or less on even playing ground. One player might first announce a "3v1" on chat before commencing.

Hopefully this posts translates well in other languages. Thanks!
