Replacement Players

by Trigfea63 » Sat Sep 24, 2022 6:00 pm

Yet again, my game experience on WebDip has been seriously diminshed by the replacement player dynamic: I spend many hours devising and executing a strategy based on the players in the game. Then Player X drops out, and Replacement Player Y comes in and totally changes strategy. Sometimes appropriately, sometimes not. It doesn't really matter, because either way, all that time I spent has been wasted. I will tell you, this is the main reason I mostly play against the bots now. They don't miss turns. They don't randomly change strategy mid-game. The human games are not worth the time and effort, when multiple replacements per game are the norm as they now are.

I realize I'm venting a bit, but I doubt I'm alone on this one.
