Regarding the new online version of the deck-building card game Dominion, my friend complains that the bot is too challenging. Is there any way to decrease the difficulty when playing bots 1-on-1 in Dominion Online?

  • I recommend your friend keep playing more and learning Dominion better. The bot is, to be frank, pretty terrible at Dominion.

    Hah, fair enough. The friend is new, and I'm very happy they are making a good-faith attempt at learning the game. But let's face it, we were all there at some point. Apr 18, 2017 at 19:38

No, there is not currently any difficulty settings for the AI.

I cannot find an official source stating this to quote/link as reference, but you can read through the official FAQ and see some mentions of playing against the AI, with no mention of a difficulty setting.

As this is a pretty new implementation of the game, it is constantly in development with improvements and bug fixes happening often. So it is reasonable to expect such functionality to happen; though I have not heard about any expected timeline or priority for that feature. You can request that feature at the feature requests board on the Shuffle iT forums.

  • Thanks for the very thoughtful and informative reply! I thought that was the case (i.e. I tried and failed to locate such a setting), thank you for confirmation. Also, I'm pretty hyped that such an esteemed player answered my question! Apr 18, 2017 at 19:39
  • @ancientcampus You're welcome.. but I have to ask, what makes you think I am "an esteemed player"? Did you see my frequency of the Dominion Strategy Forums? There was a time, back in the days of Isotropic (over 4 years ago), that I was a pretty high-ranked player, but not so much anymore.

    I confess I have played little Dominion in the past 4 years, so that seems about right. If I recall, your posts on the Dominion Strategy forums were frequent and well-received. Yours is one of the few names I remember from those days. Apr 18, 2017 at 20:46
  • Update: browsing the feature requests board confirms this. Multiple bot difficulties is not presently implemented. Apr 25, 2017 at 19:09
