Hi,
maybe it would be nice if there is an option where you can bet a small amount of SM $ on the fight (of course on your own mechs win ;) ).
The opponent is asked "do you accept the wager XXX SM" and the winner gets the pot plus normal winning award (if not accepted, fight will take place like it takes place at the moment).
There should be a maximum bet for each level(-range).
To energize this instead of the opponent only (the level?) and the wager should be shown in the fight starting screen... :arrow: no name, no pic of mech

This could make the fights more interresting AND maybe quitting is reduced a little....

What do you think about? :roll:

It would slow the game down (if done between opponent searching and battle).
And as most of the time, when levels are uneven, the lower level wont accept the bet (having on average, a lower chance of winning).

I think the only way this would be workable, is if the bet wasn't against the opponent, but against the computer (as a bookie) and the amount you win is based on the level difference (e.g. beat the same level and double your bet, beat a higher level, and triple your bet, beat a lower level and get an extra half).
And rather than typing in the amount you bet (slow), you can choose to bet the winnings of that battle (by clicking a button during the first 2 turns of the match).

this is essentially gambling and i'm sure that's disallowed at bd or games in general in the us or the world.


and think about the effects it would have on people. think of the people betting large or many small wagers and losing lots of money in real life. the same thing would happen in sm

Uhm ever heard of virtual poker? Gambling with a currency with no real world value is completely legal.

read up if interested...

As a sign of this ambiguity, some lawyers who provided background for this article declined to go on the record because they were uncertain of where things might end up — and what positions their clients may end up taking as a result.

as your tl;dr makes it sound like there could be problems

Why need ask the enemy?
You just simply doubles or lose your bet...

I'm not sure of this because it could be abused if people just get their friends to bet and then just shutdown/walk for the whole match allowing someone to gain money a lot easier

Can't people already do that anyway? (seeing as you get money for a win)
