^^^^ Agreed.
But you need to know how much you are going to bet earlier.

A thing to think about: possible bet 0?

Hm, what about people creating new accounts, playing in game, having them each bet 999 points (or some other arbitrary high number), and allowing a main account to shoot to the top of the board? Obviously these people would be flagged right away, but the potential for abuse out weighs and fun this could have.

It also seems to take away the 'skill' factor of rank on the scoreboard. Win a few lucky games, and boom, you're up among the best? PFft.

Or there could be a maximum bet put into place, say 20?

Still not a fan of it, one more way to abuse the system and encourage people to create more multiple accounts. :)

solution

Postby Loudawg on Mon Feb 05, 2007 9:25 pm

if you really wanted to do it ... this is how I think it would need to work ... you could do it like a private invite poker tournament where all the players in that tournament would have to be approved tp play .. If you kept a large minimun entry per tourney , where there were plenty of players it would be very hard to get a multi account on the same table sorta speak .. not that it couldnt be done but that there would be to many eyes out there looking and to much randomness for someone to want to try ... I like the idea of a massive betting tournament forsure ..especially if you could up the ante during the game play ... if you dont match the ante .. your out .. it would make for very fast paced games and put alot of pressure on someone if they werent sure they could win or not ... thats why poker is fun and why backgammon for points is fun .. it would be madness but if you had someone willing to run it lol it would be off the hook ... :twisted:

Yes - perhaps this would work as a prize for a tournament?

Or maybe tournie entry costs (say) 100 points...

Winner takes 75% Other people in the final take 5%.

Andy - I agree about the abuse (I was worried about that too) - hence this suggestion of limiting it to tournie games is a great addition to the idea.

u could have unrated games but bet? scenario: a general bets 1 and a private bets 500 = general wins = private cries at home like a baby = unfair (no offense anybody)

This would wreck the score board as luck would be a huge factor...(more so than now)

Mabey someone could create a tournament based on pink slips, but it shouldnt be tied into the CC database.

How bout you set the limit before.

Postby hecter on Wed Feb 07, 2007 12:49 pm

How bout you could set the limit when you create the game, and have a maximuim of 50. That way everyone knows the stakes, how much they are going to lose in the game, but also how much they could win.

Perhaps it should only be reserved for 3000+ Imagine Dugg vs. Blitz - losser becomes a scout.

I agree that there should be an upper limit (say 100) but it would also be good cos you could have 1 point games (a la friendlies) where you can try out maps/styles/partners etc?

Or in Tourneys the first rounds of a tourney could be 1 pointers - next round 10 pointers and final 100 pointer or something!!

Then again that would mean you'd get penalised for getting far but losing!!

Still sounds like there would just be an influx of multis....

You'd be surprised! But even if we added a rank you need to achieve, it seems like an option we'd be less likely to consider.
