What about if you could bet 5 to 40 points in a game? Flat options like 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40 would already be ok. Bet games should be another singles variation, as standard and terminator. The game creator decides how much all will bet (everyone will bet the same amount), and this would be clear to the ones joining the games. Instead of standard, it could appear like "Bet: 10" or "Bet (10)".
Once you have achieved 500 points, you cant start / join more bet games (so no need to worry about negative score and much abuse).
I think it would be good for the whole community. The possibility of cool games risking only 5 points could bring veterans back to public games. If they want a top fight, they can gain 200 points for winning.
The main problem I see is: some guys could use this to get 200 points from deadbeats and privates in public games, so maybe we could use a reducer according to the ranking. Like, if a colonel wins, he gets 80% of the points from majors, 60% from captains, and so. The rest is missed, or, well I dont know.
Or, we could just allow to join the bet games people that are same level or 1 level up or down the game creator.
What do you guys think?
