If a gambling house was added with WiS, what mini games would you like to see added?

Also adding to the usual potential for some EvE scullduggery, should the owner of say slot machines for example be able to rig them?

Looking at the whole WiS feature of Incarna, my view is that if we are going to end up having it, then it should at least be interesting.

This made me scream and jump around like a maniac pumping my arms at 3 AM in the morning. You have no idea how much I loved that.


Stay classy, Chribba.

i would imagine its going to be like a card game out of some crappy rpg like pazaak. real games like blackjack poker or roulette arnt good enough for the people who live in space.

The only thing I'm interested in is the ability to block certain people in Incarna. I do not want to wake up groggy in the mornings, log on and wander down to the bar only to be greeted by the face of "Allota Baggage".

Sorry, just had to point something out. WiS is NOT a feature of Incarna. Incarna is the release name for what once upon a time was called WiS. Please read the forums a little more than once every 5 years, kthnx

Tis true. Poker always has been, and ever shall be.

Supplement it with other EVE specific games sure, but leave in the timeless classics.

I'm praying for those damn player run/corp run casinos, with slots with selectable payout ratios set by the owner just like a real casino, poker so we can get in game proper 3d EOH, maybe some of the other generic games also like roulette....

this would be epic win, get all those and then have the fancy next gen games like that sick board game they showed way back in da day... that way you can have casinos that specialize in "old" style games and new style games

As long as they were mostly player run so people could make isk from it, I don't really care.

Poker and other assorted card games, roulette (basically like a real casino), gamblers (slot machines for the North Americans or Pokies for the Australians), some form of board games (chess, maybe an Eve version of Risk, etc) and betting (though you would have to bring in somethings to bet on, see below). I also think if you could rent out a corner/screen you should be able to put something like somer.Blinks micro lotteries with an ingame form linked to his website.

Betting would be an interesting one. You could then theoretically bring in organised duals (whether it be 1v1 or 10v10 or any thing really), it would be a bit like old school gladiators, the matches are schedules people can bet on it with a bookies who decide the odds and then watch the fight remotely on one of the fancy screens in your CQ or at the bar. It would offer people who want to do small gang/solo pvp the ability to do it risk free of ganks in highsec, while offering business opportunities to people running betting shops. As long as the duals are player run, ie you could run championships, decide the limitations on the ships (but keep that basic; to ship type with the ability to exclude ship classes, tech level of ship/fitting and the ability to use RR or not. There would have to be a function with betting where it would be hard to scam, so once the bet is set neither party can pull out and walk away with all the cash. So if a duel is going on the bookie couldn't walk off with all the bets before the end of the fight ends or refuses to payout if the underdog wins. So they would need to have isk in the bank to cover any bet made.

Other things to bet on would be something like horse/dog racing it could be totally automated by CCP and be relatively random, or you could have breeders and player run animals. As long as once the race is entered its down to the stats of the animal if its player run animal, so it cant be interfered with.

If it was something like that (if it makes sense it does in my head) then it would be really fun when you are camped in station or if you just cant be bothered to undock.

On a separate note regarding Incarna; I would like to see if you can drink alcohol it should make your avatar and your ship harder to control. So if you are (character) heavily intoxicated it takes awhile to wear off and it slows down your reactions to activate modules and maneuver in space or your character cant walk in a straight line and your vision goes blurry, so there is a penalty to drinking lots. That would be well funny!!

ITT ppl beg for an isk sink.

Hold 'em is nice because its one of the only games you don't play against the house, you pay a rake.

Games of chance and games where you play against the house are for stupid thug rappers and whatnot.

The first player-run bar/casino establishment would likely be called "Liquor in the Front, Poker in the Rear".

The image that comes to mind there, is of an animal chewing off its own leg to escape a trap.

I'd like to see this feature for the Alliance Tournaments.

Back when it was" Ambulation" there was a short video showing one of the mini games. It reminds me of Tactica from the iPhone. They've pretty much said the fluff is coming. They just want to see how bad we break and abuse the basic mechanics of our avatars.
