If only people could learn to just say neigh to gambling.
Hello, could you please elaborate on your opinion? I can't really tell now if you are either viewing it as something good or bad. I view it as something of lower morals but isn't killing another player too ; )?
I've only seen the BTS yesterday but the gambling update was most admirable (although I must say i'm also giving them credit to atleast try and revive PVP).
Personally i'd like to see the gambling out of Players hands completely and that it's going to much resemble a real life casino: NPC-controlled. Much of the gambles that are in game now have resemblances to a real casino; flower games (blackjack), flower poker (poker), dicing (now obsolete but obvious), ... If this could be inplented in said casino with an additional -10% fee to the house from player bets this could easily turn into a good moneysink to deflate the economy. Odds are always on the house since this is gambling, some may win big but the house always wins in the end. This would rather deflate the economy and W2 Grand exchange could actually becoming a trading place as opposed of more then half of it occupied by somewhat scrupulous gambler hosts, betters and ofcourse scammers and bots. I myself, like to place a wager sometimes, is there something wrong with that? Before I staked and I pked but that has changed too much since EOC.
Anyone opposed of gambling I don't understand, you may not condone it but it will be there and as you can see in real life, it will always be there. Better to give it a place and make something good out of it then hate and dismiss it.
