I'd like to suggest an introduction of Mithril seeds / Flower poker to Roatpkz.
What is Flower Poker:
This game is played between 2 players.
Each player must plant 5 mithril seeds.
Depending upon the colors of 5 flowers, the outcome is decided.
If a player plants 2 flowers of the same color, it is considered 1-pair (1p)
If a player plants two 1 pairs (2 different pairs) it is considered 2-pair (2p)
If a player plants 3 of the same, it is considered 3-of-a-kind (3oak)
If a player plants 4 of the same, it is considered 4-of-a-kind (4oak)
If a player plants 5 of the same, it is considered 5-of-a-kind (5oak)
If a player plants 3-of-a-kind and a 1-pair, it is considered full house (fh)
If a a player plants 5 different flowers, it is a bust.**
White/Black flowers are a replant*
The winning case is as follows;
If both players bust, it is a replant.
*In case any one of the 5 flowers is white/black, both players must start over and re-plant all 5.
**In the situation where both players bust, both of them must replant 5 flowers and replay.
Why mithril seeds?
Flower poker is a really nice way to gamble, just something else than staking.
Also, mithril seeds could be a good product to a new money sink.
Mithril seeds could be sold for (for example) 50 PK points each, which means every flower poker pot that will be played will take
atleast 500 PK points out of the economy.
Mithril seeds could also be sold in the donation store.
This might bring more donation towards the server, which can be spend on different things that makes the server better.
An example for mithril seeds prices are:
25x mithril seeds 1,50$
100x mithril seeds 5$
250x mithril seeds 14$
500x mithril seeds 28$
1000x mithril seeds 50$
Flower poker makes people lose their bank, they will quit.
Nobody is FORCED to gamble, it's just an additional feature for those who want it. If people can't handle it, they shouldn't participate in the first place. It's as simple as that. Adding something like this doesn't harm the game, if anything, it just benefits Gretar more than anyone else, because it's another way for people to lose their wealth, which means it won't be long until their donating for more!
Losing at gambling games doesn't cause people to quit the server, no more than IRL gambling problems cause people to quit their lives. It's an addictive trap. Every time I see people writing something along the lines of "GF bank, cleaned again... quitting", I immediately learn two things about that person: 1) they'll be back shortly, and 2) they're a full-blown retard and will likely never learn any better.
What do you guys think? Should mithril seeds be inplemented into RoatPkz?
If you have any additional information that should be added to this topic please let me know.
