You're probably right - in my initial post I wasn't sure whether it would be useful/too easy to be abused - stil it generated some interest here so perhaps worth considering if the wrinkles can be ironed out.

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?

I'm still not in favor of this, mostly because I know I will be dealing with the extra multis, along with our multi hunters!

If people want rank so badly that they want to do a crapload of work to get all those points then let them. I don't really care that much about rank, i just want to have fun. So if they want to be a general that badly then say fine, because it won't increase there ability at all. While they enjoy there ill earned rank, the rest of us can have loads of fun with this new system.

Unfortunately, I don't see many taking such a care free attitude toward cheaters.

What if it was avalible only to premium members? That would definetly stop people from making multiple accounts.

I think this could be an interesting idea but the possibilities for exploiting it would make it necesary to have a lot of restrictions, which would be a pain in the arse to code.

I don't really like it because the high ranked players would use it to keep there points from privates.

But why not make it availible only to "members in good standing" (aka generals) and only after a request has been made to and had been aproved by admins? It could be like weekly or monthly events. And it would give us low-ranks an opportunity to watch generals fighting (and being demoted :twisted: ) . IMO there would be a lot of interess for watching these type of matches, if they are properly anounced in the Callouts

I think no.
That is all I need to say.
It could be easily abused the only time I could think of a use for it is during tournaments. And tounaments are not important enough to have settings made just for them

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.
