    Default PvP Casino.

    So, a few days ago I was pickin on this guy in a WF. He got upset and wanted to 1v1 me for 1000p.

    Got me thinking... Maybe there should be a way to gamble on a pvp... almost like an arena? but for plats instead of rank...

    Make a NPC vendor who holds the said amount of plats for both parties, winner receives voucher to collect entire amount from said NPC.

    Well, seeing as probably 70% of the community seems to have a gambling addiction already.. you're probably correct! lol.

    You'd probably want to enforce a time limit on how long said NPC could hold the bets - maybe that you have to duel within 5 minutes of placement?

    The double-or-nothing thing might be a problem - maybe a dialogue box prompting it, with some sort of auto-check that you HAVE the funds for said doubling, and if you don't, it just pays out to the winner, and you'd have to go get another X amount from your guild bank or mooch off a friend or transfer from an alt.

    And if you want to keep other people from messing with it, maybe make it an instance. (Kinda like the cage matches in Pocket D over in City of Heroes.)

    Then there's the problem of transferring funds across shards - what happens if the person you're duelling is from a different shard than you? Starting a 'cage match' and then deliberately failing would get around the 'no money transfer across shards' thing that's currently in place...

    Yes, let us gamble over potatoe matches. Easiest money every made. Also, lets put our ELOL on the bets along with platinum. That'd really make things exciting.

    Even better, make some form of spectating like from overhead with free camera or some un-targettable invisible ghost thingy to walk around the WF and only able to communicate in spectator chat.

    Then force new people to spectate 15 games of each WF map before they can play and/or bet and have some built in announcement thingy saying "%t is RIGHT CLICKING AN OBJECTIVE NOW THERE TEAM IS GAINING POINTS"

    "UH OH DON'T LEAVE THE OBJECTIVE THE OTHER TEAM WILL STEAL UR POINTS"

    or maybe just a sarcastic announcer like cortana to announce these things in regular WFs would suffice. (along with bets cause those would be fun)

    Last thing we need is more Casino-style content in the game.

    That's what Rift needs - a DIFFERENT type of announcer. Never mind this "Savior!" crap.

    No, you need someone like Lord Arak bellowing, "YOUR SHARD JUST GOT STOLEN, LOSERS!"

    Or right after you successfully gank the Fang carrier, he hollers, "DO YOU EVEN RIFT, BRO?!" (that already exists as a sound file, by the way... no joke)

    Or else call it like a football game... "KRONOS HAS THE FANG! THEY'RE TAKING DAMAGE BUT NOT GOING DOWN! IT'S ABSOLUTE CHAOS!"

    great points here,
    The time limit is a great idea as well as possibly being instanced. as long as people could still watch me kill my opponent and take his monies!) :P

    I do see how double or nothing could cause problems.. as for the cross-shard issue, maybe make a plat voucher that is trade-able across shards. Also, what about spectators. maybe the spectators want to place wages on the fight. maybe code in that the NPC can take wagers from others on the fight :P

    Why would they work to create a gambling system that uses plat when a majority of the game is made up of gamble systems that involve real money? Let's not take steps backwards here.

    /partial sarcasm.

    ps. And ya, for some gambling is a real addictive problems that can ruin peoples lives. How cute that Trion pivoted their game off gambling. R.I.P. PC MMOs. They were already addicting while being void of excessive cash spending. Guess some just can never have enough.

    Think of it as a gambling "12 step program".. stop gambling ur real money and gamble your fantasy monies! ... I don't think anybody actually expects to see something like this implemented? buuuut. it'd be cool if they did.. *cough*

    Eq2 had an awesome gamble game at the docks. Was like a mini slot machine you dropped some coin in. And the jackpot just went up the more people lost.

    Although I spoke with a dev once and he sort of hinted it's rigged (a gambling system is rigged?!?!). Had a guildie who macro'd his computer to use the gambling NPC all night. Said he woke up the next morning with like 1200 less plat and was never doing it again. Especially when it goes years without being won, and then the winner is some level 2 guy named "Holyshhh". Seems legit. Never forgot when I matched 5/6 numbers and the 6th number was 1 off . Would have won so much plat. Of course after compulsively playing it on my server...I change servers after being on the same one for a couple years. 2 days later my old server had the jackpot hit. GG.

    Those days are gone~

    Sadly this would cost each person participating 450 credits and trion would keep 10% of the plat.
