Re: The G with some Basics.

I am not convinced that event he 7's up deck would take care of the issue. Last time I played my P and I were down 8 - 0. I said "Don't worry P - Hardwood will deal us a couple of loners to catch us up." Guess what - the next two hands were exactly that - back to back loners. My P and I then proceed...

Re: Unreal high ranking?

Now lemme agree in part with what you say about the Random generator. I agree that it does cause a lot of problems with loppy tables, I sat on enuff of em over the 2-3 years I been here. However, I disagree that its the generators fault. Ive managed to get those crap cards in a live tournament in Ve...

Re: Being voted off before start of a game

Sailing Away, don't take it so personal. As GrandmaS said there are many reasons for doing this. People mainly get booted in Provi games with ratings of 12 or 1300. The table setting there has to be anyone, but if a provi player has a rating of 1580 and the person joining has something like 1240 or...

Re: Being voted off before start of a game

Partners that frequently play together will boot opposition simply because they don't want to risk losing their precious rating points. I figure if they do that they must not have much faith in their ability so ithey are not worthy opponents anyway. Good advice - pick another game where the players ...

Re: Random Deal Generator

Pot calling the kettle black LOL. Gart's complaints are the same as Eennie and other players. Oh man i give up, you are far too negative for me Gart. Good luck. :) :) Eennie Meenie The G Gosh that was easy. And I'm not negative. If I was negative I'd be saying..."hardwood hates me and deals me sucky...

Re: What would you do?

And as for you Hoax, this is a discussion, not an angry session that you are trying to make it against the top players, get your arse in there and play a decent game and stop running us down. Contribute something worth while to the Forum. I am not running any of the good players down. The good playe...

Re: What would you do?

Geeze - Hardwood euchre is not an exact science. Go with your gut instinct and if it happens to be wrong and your Partner doesn't like it then your P isn't worth your time to play a game. Pesonally, I think people's feelings are more important than a 2000 + rating. For those of you who boot people b...

Re: I take my leave

I play a lot of euchre of the same format as Hardwood. Yes I get loppy games but in fourty odd years of playing euchre I have never seen such consistently loppy tables. I play other sites as well and I do not experience the uneven deals to the same degree that I do on hardwood. Young Hero is one of ...

Re: Unreal high ranking?

Wheels I very seldom play on hardwood anymore but it is not due to players cheating but the random dealing. Even though I don't play I check the forum regularly to see if there is any news about a fix to the problem. I have several nics above the 2000 ratings and I earned every point the hard way. I...

Re:

Hero, I'm sorry that it appears that way. We really have tested forwards and backwards the shuffling of the cards, spending countless hrs trying to find anything that would cause something like that to happen, and we just haven't been able to find that effect or an unbalanced shuffle. We've added s...

Re: New Room In Euchre

Even with the controls there is much fighting and name calling in the games and the lobby of smoots. I agree that the arguments from the Dark Horse can spill over to the Smoots lobby. I would like to see Smoots cleaned up, not add a place that is conducive to more of the abusive language and inappro...
