18-March-2013: Dealing with games of chance

Recommended Posts

They'll likely spam more about gambling IRC channels now instead.

Now for the secondary action ... bots adjust every time there is some massive anti-botting update, so I expect the hosts (and players) to do the same.

 

IRC is a fairly stealthy way to do things, and not very detectable (except for people trading gold in game). I wonder how Jagex will respond in the coming weeks.

Yes but not only is is now a mutable offence so easy to get caught out but it's also a lot harder for the player to play these games. Before yoyu could place a bet and stay in game, know the result instantly. This is now gone. It wont be so easy to get new punters if people need to run an IRC client as well.

 

Why not put the randomised items into a pattern though instead of just showing the one egg or one seal. Maybe it was just quicker to program that way.

Eh, guess its time to work on maxing now that gambling is gone.... And to learn how to Nex/KK.

 

Or just stick to 07.

well; advertising for such things is bannable, and this is so much shady; and now people can be reported for gambling, so i suspect it will die down, even a bit.

 

also; this means we're going to have hordes of out of work gamblers(hi quack) who will be invading nex.. time to clean off my crashing gear.

his week’s update has also made Momentum a persistent, toggled ability, much like Incite or Single-Way Wilderness. No adrenaline is generated while it is active, and it is still cancelled by use of any other ability.

real update :smile:

 

 

Is 'war against gamling' only one new rule? No real ingame content like casion, card games, no moneysink?

Couldn't they add 'gamble option" where 2 players have 40% chance to win other player money and there is 20% for destroying money?

inb4 jagex adding new rule banable unarmed duel aren fights .

Whatever the arguments for and against that idea, Jagex have only had 2 weeks to program and test this stuff since the thread opened. I'd rather this stuff now and in-game stuff in the future than it be held up while stuff gets developed.

About time they banned this stupid gambling crap :)

My long ass paragraph's on the other thread were not in vain after all

 

Fight Cauldron updates look awesome btw. Shame I'm already maxed combats, otherwise I imagine it'll be an awesome place to go train, provided TokHaar-Hok isn't as difficult as when BoE was released.

So is there a mass scramble for names that don't have "Host" in them?

Most hosts with a name "Host XXXX" were scammers or wannabe hosts. Pretty much all real hosts had rare (3-5 letter) names. With a few exceptions for famous stakers/pkers/youtubers.

 

Peace,

Also, guess my account named "Flowers" is worthless now. Ohh well.

I see no reason to praise jagex. This update well over 1 year overdue.

About time! It's not often that Jagex does things like this, and I'm glad they did this time.

Because if they didn't the GE would go from h/c x2 spam land to egg x2 spam

People should NOT do IRC dicing. It's easily riggable, you only need to change the coding. Already seen a few alternatives to gambling already which is a shame. With the removal of gambling I feel they should of reopened Duel Arena Tournaments.

More likely this was a quick fix and they may implement something later where you get to pick what colour you turn.

Just make the outcome predictable instead of random.

I just had to quote you here. This is sad but true. I have already seen how more and more people have recently started to do exactly this (quite a few guys predicted this action after that forum post on gambling by Mod Mark). Gambling is going to go down quite a lot. But it won't die.

Great work though, Jagex. ^^
