Re: Increasing participation in games +
Friday, November 2, 2018 @ 19:09
Reply to: Note 40757 posted by Tymme > Mafia and poker, blackjack and slots, etc., not so sure, espec since afaik > they can be played while doing other things. A few reasons come to mind... 1. Mafia has never been a good game. Not even in person at parties. The basic mechanics as original designed are just not good. Later bluffing games tried to (relatively successfully, I think) fix the fundamental flaws. If you want a less broken version of Mafia, you need to look at something like Secret Hitler. You can find a reasonable review of it at ArsTechnica, which gives this money quote: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/01/secret-hitler-the-bluffing-game-for-people-who-hate-bluffing-games/ > In practice, though, most of the bluffing games I play usually go something > like this: > > Other player: I think Kyle is the bad guy. > Me (regardless of whether or not Im the bad guy): No, Im not. > Other player: Hes totally lying! I totally know it! > Me: No, Im not. > *repeat over and over and with various other combinations of players* That perfectly explains the Mafia experience, and it's what advanced variants like Secret Hitler address. 2. Poker and blackjack are semi-skilled gambling games that I think most people only enjoy in one of three conditions: 1) pretend-to-be-James(ina)-Bond parties 2) real casinos with a million flashing lights, free drinks, and Celine Dion 3) if you think you can make real money I'm not sure which of these can work here. 3. Slots is completely skill-less gambling, which, short of abusing people with addiction problems, banks on rapid participant turnover tossing in a few bucks for funsies only once a while. 4. Aardwolf critically lacks billboards, popups, flashing lights, and other mechanisms that grab attention and promote these games. If real slot machines didn't have blinkenlights do you think as many people would even think to play them? Before this thread, when was the last time you remembered that Aardwolf has slot machines? If you want more people to play the slot machine, try this: On the first of every month look at the list of all players who did at least one pull at the highest pay-in (100k). Give one randomly chosen person from the list a trivia point. - Fiendish

Reply to: Note 40695 posted by Vilgan > There was no usefulness even before the aard bracers since a basic > trigger to re-wield the weapon makes disarm pointless. Agree. Getting disarmed should also impose at least a few seconds of delay before any of your subsequent commands get through. A re-wield trigger should still hurt.

Reply to: Note 40647 posted by KoopaTroopa I agree with KoopaTroopa. I don't think Vespar has fully thought through the meaning of his response. > How many people here actually went OPK for the "OPK experience"? None. Which is why it's critical to have an upside to counter the downside. That also means that it's critical to have a downside to counter the upside. > How about this, lets remove all bonuses for OPK and see > how many people continue to use the flag. > > Would you? Flip it around. Let's remove the PK part from OPK and just leave the bonus experience. Would you _not_? If you can just drop the flag whenever, then it's just free bonus XP, which is probably not the goal.

The obvious solution to this, and also every other overabundant resource problem in the game, is to automatically increase the cost of materials until bottle/scroll shop profit is maximized. It's kinda about time that Aardwolf had a market economy for standard shop prices.
