I think they are fairer as there is less variance in them so I actually really like this idea


I think these are correct. I had to calculate based upon hand size...

Code: Select all
Set \ Spoils 1    2    3    4    5   T/S
  FLAT
Red          0%   0%   4%  11%  21%
Green        0%   0%   4%  11%  21%
Blue         0%   0%   4%  11%  21%
Mixed        0%   0%  22%  44%  62%
  POKER
Single     100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
Pair         0%  33%  78% 100% 100%
3 o'Kind     0%   0%  12%  27%  63%
4 o'Kind     0%   0%   0%   4%  33%
Flush        0%   0%   0%   0%   1%
Run          0%   0%  22%  44%  62%
2 Pairs      0%   0%   0%  22%  62%
Full House   0%   0%   0%   0%  25%


So, by the statistics here, a Full House should bestow a better relative bonus than Four of a Kind. Also...

I was only basing the possible spoil sets upon common Poker sets. However, statistically, a Two Pair is less common a set than a Three of a Kind. (With five spoils it's barely a difference, however.) This brings up the topic of how much the Poker Rate should reflect actual Poker rules versus following statistical balance. Again, up for debate.

That way 2 pair would be actually 2 pair and not 2 of the same "suit", as it were. Straights would then be possible.

You wouldn't get the +2 bonuses, but since you have a lot more ways to cash I would think that wouldn't matter.


There's a couple things I see in the way of that... Firstly it would require a bit more programming to implement. Right now I'd expect the spoils are generated off of the XML of each map. A custom XML of a deck of cards would have to be referenced (not that hard) when using the Poker Rate in this configuration.
Secondly, and this is a much bigger problem, is you now have a lot more rules to program in and the potential that a full hand of five spoils could be worth noting but singles. i.e. Jack of Clubs, Ace of Hearts, Two of Clubs, Five of Diamonds and Ten of Spades makes no Poker hand, and thus that full hand is worth five. Now, a player could keep tossing cards until they get a hand, which might be cool, but now it's approaching a level of complexity I'm not sure is entirely worth it.

I don't think the number of possibilities makes it too complex...it was done for the continent bonuses on the poker map.

I think you may have to set some rules as to how the cash takes place; i.e. No single card cashing. You must have a pair or better to cash prior to having 5 cards. The only way to get rid of a hand of rags would be to cash all 5 at once.

This makes it interesting...if your opponent is holding 5 cards, either they have nothing at all, or they're waiting to see if they get their straight, flush, or full house...

Have you seen the XML for Poker Club?

It's very complicated... and Lack would have to right all of that code into his PHP engine...

Also - if you have normal cards - how do you get the 2 for owning the card?!

You don't. See the bolded part above. I think there are enough ways to get a poker hand bonus, you don't need the +2s if you're playing this spoils type.

And I haven't seen the poker club xml, but then I know nothing about xml so I wouldn't know whether it was complicated or not even if I did see it.

I just think it would be better to have actual cards and thus more closely represent the odds of poker hands. With no card "ranks", and only 3 "suits", the odds of getting a particular hand are skewed.

If it's too complicated, so be it. I like the idea, I just think if it's done, it would be much more interesting to take it a step further.

I see both ways having merit. However, in the long run I don't see both being implemented, if any are implemented at all. (Though I hope one is.)

I think this is perhaps the most original and most fun variation on spoils ive seen...problem is, coding that will also be the most difficult, since it will require enabling a cash at one and two cards...and more than 3 at a time....

I seriously want to play it right now though.

interesting idea....needs some of the bugs worked out first though

- some issues

- as Queenie mention the value of the sets are out of order.Pairs needs to be less than three of
a kind etc..

- I would get rid of singles and start with pairs to add a litttle more of a Challenger.Dont want
to make it too easy but this is my opinion

honestly except for that I dont see anything wrong with this idea

I think the addition of being able to play a "set" with just one spoil is the greatest idea of all time. This is a game changer, a strategy changer, and will make the game so much. much more interesting to play. Similarly great is the idea that you can play two spoils as a "set." Bravo, and how do we make this happen?

Very good idea. I'm thinking we should advertise this more, I'd really like it implemented. Any ideas?

Well, I doubt anyone upon reading it will disagree that its a great idea. The main problem will be that its a completely different way to cash spoils, which as yeti said, will be difficult to say the least. To some degree, its another game altogether, and even if it becomes pending....its not gonna happen for a while. Like you though... I want to play it today.
