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

Bet your points.

Postby Strife on Tue Jan 01, 2008 10:42 pm

<Subject>:
Concise Idea:
Well you pretty much either have all the players bet a certain amount of points(all 20, 25, 30, etc.) or maybe an option for the start of the game of preset point bets.

<Body>:

Suggestion Idea:
A setting that let's all players agree on the amount(may take awhile) or a preset amount.

Specifics: Point wagering, that way if say a lower rank joins a preset game you don't lose a whole lot. Maybe a limit cap of say 100 points(high stakes game)

Why it is needed: The above statement(s).

Comments: I realise the amount of abuse that could take place under multi abuse, so maybe a limit. Also I don't believe this has been suggested, I apologise if it has been(I searched). I just think it would be a nice feature for all game types. I think point wagger preset would be very nice, the other suggestion may take awhile for all or the majority of players to agree on a limit especially in a casual game.

Unfortunately it has been suggested, and rejected due to abuse issues, like you mentioned there might be.

Thanks for using the form though. :)

Suggestion: Point Setting

Postby flyboy91 on Mon Mar 24, 2008 3:29 pm

<-------------------->

<Subject>: Point Setting

Concise Idea: When starting games, players should have the option to set the amount of points each player will risk in playing

<Body>:

Suggestion Idea: In the "Start a Game" tab, players starting games should be able to set specific amounts of points that all players who join will be willing to forfeit, and all the accumlative points go to the winner

Specifics: Have a specific option in the "Start a Game" page to set specific point amounts

Why it is needed: To allow faster ranking and not just the petty 8 points, 9, points, 13 point games, etc etc, that really do nothing to scores

The possibility of " BETTING " on Game Points [rejected]

Postby Alchemy70 on Sat Mar 29, 2008 11:06 pm

I just finished a letter to the Admin here @ C.C., and here it is in full below.

"I am Michael (Alchemy70) and a member of the A.o.D. here at Conquer Club. I wanted to let you know that I and others of the club really like the upgrade you have done recently. I told them in our forum that there is one thing that kind of worries me. With the upgrade, you have decided to alter the score / ranking system. By doing so, many more persons are higher ranked (including myself) and it seems that there are more and more officers than usual. Although strategy is just half the battle here at Conquer Club, I and others feel like there should be another aspect to the game. Listen please to what I now write.

With the ever constant growing number of members at Conquer Club and those already here and growing in rank, I now throw you, the Administration of C.C. another idea and aspect to ponder on; the idea of betting.

Whether you are in a clan or not, it is an interesting idea to have just before a game starts to have the option to choose classic point style or a set number of points to agree the game be worth for the winner. Even in team games could have the option to choose a Team Leader and therefore negotiate a set number of points a game be worth. The winning individual gaining the points in either classic point mode or betting mode (no greater than the number of points that individual points that player has), or in team games the winning team gains the points from the loosing team, either in classic point mode orthe points will come equally from all team members in the amount of preset team leader's agreement at the start of the game in betting mode.

Having this option could make all games a whole lot more interesting for individuals or clan wars. There would have to be some work in the gaming dept. to integrate this option into game play, but think it would make gaming a lot better here at Conquer Club.

Just consider the idea please and it would be nice to know your overall resolution to the idea in an email of sorts.

Thanks for listening and keep up the great work.

A.o.D. " Alchemy70

Any other suggestions relative to this topic are more than welcome. Currently awaiting some response from Administration @ C.C.

FWIW the established method of making a suggestion to improve the site is to post in this forum using the form provided in the sticky, engage the support of the community and then having done so and perhaps honed the suggestion on the way Lack or other members of the CC team will respond here in the forum. I would suggest that direct PMing of Lack is not the most efficient way to get a suggestion adopted.

pen to manipulation.

Multi 1 bets 1000 pts, multi 2 bets 1000, owner of multi bets 1000 and surprise surprise wins the game.

It would indeed be interesting, but the abuse would be constant.

i'm all all for betting.

i'm also betting all members under 18, 21 in highly religious areas are no longer allowed to be members of a gambling site such as this which will eventually lead to the collapse of cc.

unfortunately if the above does occur i will be to morose to collect any winnings due from any takers of the above mentioned bet.
