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

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.

I want to gamble with my points, make a CC Casino.

Postby mibi on Sun Nov 11, 2007 12:30 pm

Lack should create a special part of CC where users can go and gamble their points on things like Slots and Keno. That way if users don't feel like earning their points, at least they can try to win them randomly.

It could be something like "Enter the number of points you with to gamble" and then you click the "gamble" button, and you either win or lose points.

Why is it needed? I dunno, but I think people would try it so does it really need a reason to exist.

It's a joke, Freezie. He's making fun of DiM, and I like it.
