Hi people,

I had an idea and wanted to know what you guys think of it. If we get enough positive response, this could probably be put into practise. I was thinking FOD could put in a point betting button and you could bet as many points as you wished. Of course there would be a minimum since sometimes you have a high ranker and a low ranker and the difference would be like 30 points. For example: ABC has 600 and XYZ has 200, then the minimum would be like 30 points since that is what ABC would lose if he were to lose the game. Also, thinking of putting a BO1, BO3, BO5, BO7 button as well. If anyone leaves without finishing the points will be automatically deducted. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks,
Ĉrown Thief

For example: ABC has 600 and XYZ has 200


so ABC bets 600 points, and then concedes the game.......


i think not somehow, at least not without some kind of safety guards in place.

This is a general idea at the moment...All the details can be worked out as long as we have a generic path to follow. And of course, not 100% of the players will be totally satisfied with the idea no matter how many tweaks made. But again, just is just an idea.

Thanks,

Very good

Also,

If push comes to shove, then we can put a maximum on the betting pool as well. Also, some minor details will include no point difference in same IPs, meaning some people that have more than one Nick, will have no point difference no matter how much they wager or how many games they play.

Thanks

It's a great idea mate, however I've seen an idea like this before and I think fod said they wont put it in as it is like gambling.
