Default Gambling

Where are all the player gambling games that live had? It is not true classic eq until you play EQ gambling.

they banned them, probably because it was making it difficult to determine who is RMTing.

probably accidentally banned a bunch of players for RMT when they were just gambling...

Here's a quick life-hack tip...

If you have recently requested that a computer game should also include gambling... then there is a good chance you have an addiction and should probably talk to a professional about it.

I'll tell you what tipped the staff over the edge, or it happened very close to this story...



Someone was running a 1/1000 chance to get a fungi, you could roll for 100pp and if you hit the lucky number the "dealer" was looking for, you won yourself a fungi!

Players who might not have even had the fungi were gambling that people wouldn't hit, and when someone did... and the "dealer" inevitably had "connection issues" and thats a whole headache/petition/RMT concern/etc.

So yeah, no gambling. Nilbog did at one stage think about adding a casino bot, to help as a platsink as much as anything else... but it was before Velious was completely released, not classic, effort required, didn't happen for many reasons (yet).

Rolling is already a form of gambling and it’s pretty normal and agreed upon in most groups as the standard way to distribute loot

You could just do "fastest looter gets" I suppose.
