Amusingly some people dont get it. I dont know much about pilk(even though he is on my side and i see him in gangs giving boni), but TT is the kind of guy who fielded *youknowwhat* in a tournament. Thats not the kind of guy that tries to hide behind petty excuses in my book.

Besides its a gentlemans agreement, some of you might not understand that but normal betting rules dont apply to that. Those kind of bets are never voided for any reason, apart from one of the involved parties being less then they thought themselves to be.

Originally by: wikipedia
The essence of a gentleman's agreement is that it relies upon the honor of the parties for its fulfilment, rather than being in any way enforceable.


That sums it up nicely, you can back out at any time of such a agreement, without even giving any reason. If you honor it you honor it because you want to do so, based solely on your attitude.

Which brings me back to TT, i think he is the kind of dude who would fullfill such an agreement even if the servers had been offline the entire time the bet was running. And you guys in IAC can be damn proud having leader like that, cause thats what seperates the men from the boys.

didnt the 500M isk tyrrax suggested get reduced to 100M isk by pilk in the 'bet thread' as half bill was too much?


I was actually just thinking the same, but Im not sure though so dont quote me on it.
I guess some of the more active forum warriors could find the thread and check it out since that would pretty much end this discussion.

So you can't win a bet on a football team unless you play for either of those teams? Or unless you are the one that scored the winning goal? What a load of crap.

I have to agree with the guy about gentlemens honour.... i mean.... sure, AXIOM might suck (i dunno, never spoke to any of them guys).... and sure BOB might cheat (hey, i wasn't watching it happen, so i won't assume anything)..... all i know for sure is, TT made a wager, and probably has the Stones to fulfil that wager.......

Although, personally i'd have said a better wager for TT would have been to have to fly around distributing officer mods (the good kind) to random noobs from EveUni........ cos its just random enough for him to do....

Which reminds me.... isn't this too "normal" a thing for TT to do? .... i think someone is mellowing in their sinility (sry if i misspelt)

As a Bookmaker, I feel qualified to weigh in here.

When you place a bet, you are making a contract with the bookmaker. This means that when you place the bet, you agree to the rules listed specifically at this time, with the provisions stated at the time (stake size, terms of the wager, etc) and you agree to honour the terms and conditions of the bet as stated.

The bet was, that IAC would hold the station on the 20th. There were no Act of God, Server Downtime, random kitty attack, etc, clauses in the contract, as witnessed by CAOD, and so as such, the bet stands. This is standard practice at any reputable bookmaker throughout the world.

Analogies to a soccer game or William hill are silly, because William Hill as a bookmaker has a set of defined rules, which you agree to when you place a bet with them. Their rules cover things like match cancellation, team forfeits, crowd riots, disqualification, etc. No rules regarding the bet being void or extended were agreed to in this bet, therefore the bet stands "as is".

Unfortunately everyone's going to look at my ticker and flame me, but I'd say the same thing even if bob had lost sov previously and were trying to take it back as the server went down.

Of course, still waiting to see what Tyrrax does, so all the alt flaming and trolling is moot at the moment =P

Edit: Godwins law rapidly approaching 1

Edit2: Yes, Pilk isn't a bookmaker. But I'm saying what a bookmaker WOULD do. You know. Stuff.

Deaell, pay no attention to Martin Van******s comments, goons think they can make racist RL comparisons on these forums. They show the entire eve community they are worthless trolls.

Why CCP tolerates comments like this which are in violation of forum rules is baffling.

first, there is a button called "quote" when you actually quote someone.
secondly, i am not a goon and have never been one.
third, this actually is eve online a massive multiplayer online roleplaying game where you guessed it no factions called the polish.
fourth, im not insulting any polish people who might be playing the massive multiplayer game known as eve online, i am merely pointing out that you are in ISS who will not loose the stations in fountain core as you atleast cant loose those.

was that informative enough?
