Browsing discards

Post by Quinarbre » 26 August 2020, 12:14

The upcoming version of Tash-Kalar will allow you to browse your discard.
I'm thinking about how to let you see the other players' discards too, but I'd like your input :
- should it be an option at table creation or systematic ?
- should it be available in turn-based mode only or in every game ?

In my opinion, browsing opponent's discard should always be available.

Same here, much better than scrolling down the game log.

Not sure if it should be in real time games though, since it could slow down the pace. But I'm not a real time player so not sure about it..

Yeah, I don't play real time too often either, but there's still a strict time limit and people are able to somewhat remember most of the cards that have been played because they were just played within the last 10 minutes or whatever. So then the discard display would just be a quick reference.

I feel it should be an option, which defaults to "display opponents' discards" for turn-based, "do not display" for real-time; but allow players to set it manually if they wish.

The game log can get REALLY confusing due to the logged take-backs.... sometimes a player summons a Being, undoes it, and it's not entirely clear from the log whether the card was put in play or not. Publicly available discards would solve this.

How do people feel about tracking discards for flares and Legends? I do often keep track of flares in particular to guess the odds of triggering one.

While that would be nice, I don't think the backoffice for the lobby allows so much fine-tuning on defaults.
Let's face it, the vast majority of TK games are played turn-based, so an option that defaults to open discards seems to be the way to go.

Seems legitimate (though it's yet another thing I'll have to squeeze somehow in the layout :shock:)

Hello! Have you implemented the opponent's discard somewhere? I can't seem to find it. Thanks.

How about now? :D
Any progress on the extra 3 buttons for discards like the current discard pile?
