The third site I tried

User Rating: 8.9

Before discovering Dominating 12, I played at Conquer Club for a while, but after months of being teamed up on and farmed for points in strange game set-ups, I decided to try other sites.

I then tried Pogo and this was too basic for my needs.

Then I found Dominating 12 and have not played anywhere else since 2013 (2 years).
The reviews I have read here are outdated and are not what I have experienced.
Like any site there is room for improvement, but they seem to be open to suggestions from both free players and paid member players.

Good reviews sound bias and I admit I am, but not without reason, I also viewed lots of other sites whilst playing at Dominating 12, but never joined any, purely on the poor quality of the maps and over complication of the interface & game settings reviewed.

One of the best things I like about the site is the high standard of moderation, I don’t want to be verbally abused by players hiding behind anonymity and I don’t have to be there, but the icing on the cake was when they created the Game of Thrones map (Westeros & Essos), wow! Their new maps are getting better and better.

Why I deducted 1.1 rating points is because of their slowness to improve on the flaws of the site, but they seem to be improving it all the time, just very slowly.

“The proof of the pudding is in the eating”, so I say, make a free account, try a few dozen games and you’ll see what I am talking about, a good place to play and a good community. Recently a mass exodus from Risk II arrived there and the standard of play and organised tournaments rose sharply.

I now refuse to go back to the other sites I once played at and will stay at Dominating 12 until I find a reason not to.

  1. Piggybacking off of Hoodlum’s reply: I’m a dinosaur with Risk as well. In fact, I feel as if I helped carve Risk pieces out of wood from the original board games back in 1865.

    The relationship Hoodlum has with “Dominating 12” I must say is similar to the one I have/had.

    But add 2 years, a few perks and some very valuable insight. Insights I won’t reveal because it will jeopardize my relationships, thus unearthing the roots that feed me information that has propelled me to voice the chilling dishonesty and crookedness that is embedded in 3 of the top 5 “owners/programmers/admin”.

    My name in itself will show ANY D12 admin/attendant/volunteer/cartographer but ESPECIALLY PROGRAMMERS AND OWNER(S) that I know D12 intensely personal. More probable, in the top 5 of anyone, including owner(s).

    Excluding the original owner, ‘God rest his D12 soul.’ (hint #2)

    Hoodlum is a kind person with good intentions. PT by trade, much like one of my trades is IT. His vault to the inner circle of D12 (voted on by 5 of the admins at that time, one of which may or may not have been mine) was propelled by the players that he brought over from the defunct site that he came from. His defending the D12 site comes as no surprise. His innocence of the D12 inner fabric helps D12’s ‘top 5 brass’, minus 2 (hint #3, specifically for the top 3).

    Not to labor any longer, the bottom line is simply that:

    1- a programmer(s) enjoyed the challenge (of his trade),
    2- in action, in real time (results) with a captive audience,
    3- and REACTION (by the players) to his/her embedding specific DL/LD (die log) action to (specific) games.

    Saved emails, and a few ‘taped’ conversations via voice would have the jury out of deliberation in minutes. The sources that LPRO refers seems to be spot on.

    Hoodlum also brings to point the charge of monitoring private messages between players. Not only is it true, but its also how we based the expulsion or banning of select players from the site. Yes, yours truly was part of the monitoring process. Unbeknownst to me, however, it was used mostly to protect the programmer(s) from any serious threat that would uncover their illicit actions regarding dice logarithm.

    Hood is correct. There is monitoring for clean language, clean play and proper alliances within the game community set of D12. However, behind those properly placed security guards lies a very dark secret, held only by a few.

    It’s unfortunate that a simple online game is the playground of a (few) mislead IT apprentice.

    Just be careful. Especially if you choose to give any pertinent information to this particular gamesite.

    (I’ll not comment on HappyChappie review because he’s only a player. )
