So my idea is that it would be cool to have Betting along with the odds given!

Here is basically how it'd work:

Every Day, the odds may change lower and lower, depending on the deaths.

Day 1 would start at how many tributes are playing (not npcs)

and after each death, odds would grow smaller and smaller.


People could bet money on the tribute they think will win, and how much money (so if on Day 1 -Matti puts 1000 points on Shaun Rivers (Odds 12:1) and Shaun won, Matti would get 12,000 points.

It seems kinda weird but its an easy and fun way to get points Very Happy

Only issue is to design a system to calculate the odds.

I know I'm not staff or anything, but odds aren't that difficult, I think Matti just means odds based on how many people are left and not their skill set, because lets be real dicemaster can be a dick.

Also another suggestion for this would be maybe the earlier you bet in say the games, the more you got paid. if it was a 12:1 deal you'd get more back than lets say someone who bet points on the same person when it became like 6:1. I do believe that betting 1000 and getting back 12,000 is a bit much though even if you bet from day one so I highly suggest i staff considers the idea to reconstruct the number thing Razz

Overall not a bad idea though, I think staff has had similar ideas to it before but even when I was apart of staff we were too lazy to discuss it all the time and such xD.

True, 12,000 is a lot Razz Maxes and Minimums could probably help out to make sure nobody goes overboard (Max of 200 betting money, Minimum of like 10 or something xD)


And as for Odds.. You could use Tribute Rankings, Training Scores, or just the remaining players.

We could matti but the thing is 1. the system for doing the odds with all that would be a lot of math, and no one likes math.
2. training scores kinda don't mean much shit to the actual games, because you can't do half the shit you do in the private session anyways, plus the dicemaster situation.

So all in all, easier to go based on just who is left of playable characters.

We've had this idea kicking around for quite a while (it was originally supposed to happen in the form of sponsors in the 27th Games, I believe, which would have been nice, since I sponsored Hunter and he won) but it is rather complicated. We're looking at some other policies to maybe input for the Games at the moment, so maybe this can be added? Smile
