I like the idea, but 100 points is too much. Maybe 20 points max per game...

I think If the Players want to 100 points is a good maximum.... It gives the Generals and Other high ranks a game that could actually hurt there ranks instead of many games

Or a game that people could abuse to get high scores.
100 per person in a 6 player game would leave the winner with 500 extra points. Win a couple of those and you're a General. I know we have the Battle Royales, but those aren't common and it doesn't disrupt the balance of points very much.

Also, think of what already existing cheaters would do with such a system. Someone could create a few multis, bet the max and be up thousands of points in no time. Point ante games would completely overturn the current poitn system, and not in a good way. Of course we could eventually catch people who were cheating the system, but would it be fun watching someone shoot up to 5000 points on the scoreboard and then getting busted? The scoreboard would become a joke.

Wager games

Postby ParadiceCity9 on Thu May 31, 2007 4:45 pm

Mainly for 2 player games. The players can wager the amount of points they are willing the bet on the game.

PotLuck and a game type

Postby ChaoticWraith on Tue Jun 05, 2007 4:51 pm

<Body>:

* Suggestion Idea: potluck tourneys

* Specifics: more than 6 players can donate 20 points to the pot to enter the tourney or a specified amount and whoever comes out standing through a knockout gets all the points from pot.
* Why it is needed: Gives a bigger incentive to get first place in the tournaments as more points are at stake if you do win.

* Priority** (1-5): 1


other notes: how about adding a game type in which people win after a specified number of rounds based on the number of countries they own and how big their army is. If you want to know a name how about conquerer mode.

It has potential for abuse by multis, though. Two multis put in all their points and deadbeat. It could be dangerous.

there is a difference, if there is a limit, then maybe, but if not, then they could give all of there points, and there comes the earliest colenal EVAR!

wager your points

Postby kid.kaboom on Mon Jul 16, 2007 2:54 am

How would you like to wager points? A player when creating a game would decide how many points they are going to put on the line. The challenger would then have to match those points to play.
It is kind of like a bet. You could tell a friend or player I bet you 50 points that I could beat you! This would be an interesting change.
Of course there would have to be limits. A maximum amount of points would have to be in effect, mainly for cheaters, but also so you cant lose all your points in a day. Another way to limit this would be by percent%. Either the player that creates the game can not wager more than... 5% or whatever number. The joining player would have to match the points and not exceed the percent; either that or the 1st player would have to play for... 5% of the lower ranked player.
this would just be an option. maybe only in private games

talk about point inflation..
I like the betting and the pot. try it for a tournement maybe, but defo not for regular games.

Points awards

Postby erazor on Fri Aug 17, 2007 12:22 am

Would it be possible to set up in the start a new game to have an option of how many points the winner will get ( 20, 30, 40, or 50 per each other players)
Every one will know exactly how many points he or she will lose,and that will allow any players regarding of the rank they have to choose witch game suit them the most.
Thanks

This idea has been mentioned plenty of times, but gets rejected every time. It won't make a difference if it were to be implemented because then everyone would complain about how they were losing points anyways.

bad idea because it encourages cheaters. :roll:

Game Type: Gambling

Postby Sir Titus on Fri Aug 31, 2007 1:13 pm

Just got this idea while playing in an RT. A game type where the players of the game must ante up some of their points (i.e., gambling).

Here's the idea (please give constructive criticism):

Start A Game: Game Type - Gambling.

The creator of the game must choose a certain number of points (which will have a maximum limit of... 50?) which is the "ANTE".

All players who wish to join the game must pay the Ante if they wish to join.

When the game begins, all players automatically lose an amount of points equal to the ante. These points are put into the "POT".

The game then plays as a regular sequential game until someone wins.

The winner wins the pot PLUS the usual amount of points awarded depending on rank.

Example: 6 player game. Creator makes a Gambling game. He sets the ante at 10 points. People join. The game begins. All players lose 10 points and the Pot is set at 60 points. The game is played. Someone wins. The winner gets the 60 point pot plus the usual points depending on rank.

So, what do you think? Good idea? Stupid idea? Needs work?

Cheers,

Sir Titus

Games like this have been suggested, and shot down mainly for a lot of possible abuse stemming from such games.
