Betting
« on: July 06, 2015, 03:36:41 am »
So, now that many players use a server that uses a money system (LWs), we thought it would be fun idea to open the opportunity to bet on the players who you think are going to win/lose.

How to bet

Anyone can make any bet, with any stakes. It is other players' choice whether they want to take the bet.

Here are some examples:

Quote
[VU]Charley opens up a topic titled: 'Bet on [VU]Veteran'.
Topic body: I would like to bet $15,000 that [VU]Veteran will make it at least to the third stage.
<screenshot included proving that I have $15,000 in LW>

[VU]Stormeus replies: I will take that bet.
<screenshot included proving that [VU]Stormeus has $15,000 in LW>

[VU]Veteran gets knocked out in the first round, so [VU]Charley gives [VU]Stormeus $15,000

Quote
[VU]Charley opens a topic titled: 'Bet on [VU]Veteran'.
Topic body: I will give 5:1 odds on [VU]Stormeus making it to the quarter-finals. This means that if you bet $10,000, and [VU]Stormeus gets to the quarter-finals, I will pay you $50,000. If he doesn't, though, you have to pay me $10,000. Players may place a maximum bet of $15,000, and I will not accept betting offers after a total of $50,000 worth of bets are placed.
<screenshot proving that [VU]Charley has a shitload of money, and so can be trusted>

[VU]aXXo replies: I will bet $10,000
<screenshot to prove [VU]aXXo has the money>

[VU]Charley replies: I accept your bet.

[VU]Knucis replies: I will bet $15,000

[VU]Charley replies: I cannot accept your bet until you prove that you have $15,000

[VU]Knucis replies: FU nab

[VU]Stormeus succeeds in reaching the quarter-finals, and [VU]Charley pays [VU]aXXo $50,000. [VU]Knucis gets nothing... NOTHING.


Quote
[VU]Charley opens a topic titled: 'Bet on [VU]Thijn's k/d ratio'
Topic body: I would like to bet that [VU]Thijn will have a 3.5 k/d ratio by the end of the tournament. I am seeking 1:5 odds on a bet of $10,000.
<screenshot proving [VU]Charley has $10,000>

[VU]Stormeus replies: Okay, I'll give you 1:5 odds, because it's more likely that Jesus will come again next week than Thijn gets a 3.5 k/d ratio in this tournament. So If you win, I'll pay you $50,000, but if I win, you pay me $10,000.
<screenshot proving [VU]Stormeus has $50,000>

[VU]Charley replies: Yes, you're right, Thijn will never get a 3.5 k/d ratio, but still, I will accept your offer.

[VU]Thijn somehow gets a 3.6 k/d ratio. [VU]Stormeus gives [VU]Charley $50,000 and then spends the next year alone, staring at a wall, questioning himself and the world.

Key points
- You can bet anything, but post proof that you actually possess what you're betting, otherwise no one will accept your bet.
- This is a trust based system. We have no power over the LW money system, this betting is unofficial. Please respect each other and don't try and swindle people.
- Try and be inventive; use your imagination. The three example bets above are quite simple, but you could make them much more elaborate, funny, and interesting.

I think disabling the Edit button for this board would be good.

Done, though betting may be split into its own board if it proves to be too restrictive for general discussion. VCDC admins and board moderators will still be able to edit posts.
