PB2 Chat Casino Event

Postby Civil-Lite » 3 June 2017, 00:19

Hello everyone!
Today we are introducing you to our contest called the PB2 Casino!
(This is made by me, Civil-Lite and my good friend MI6 AGENT 007 and AI Robot. There are 3 rounds in this game, if the player completes at least 2 rounds but loses 1 round then they would be added as 1st place on the winners list. 2nd and 3rd place are for the next 2 winners.

Brief Description
For those who wish to enter this contest, here's how it works, you need to use the chat commands "roll", "roll d20" and "roll d50". You would also need to record the numbers you have rolled into your status message:

Example:
Type this to set your status message: "/me Last Number Rolled: 0/6, 0/20, 0/50"

Next, type either type:
"roll" (Server will pick a number from 1-6)
"roll d20" (Server will pick a number from 1-20
"roll d50" (Server will pick a number from 1-50


Now you have to record the number that you rolled, into your status message. For example:
Player: roll
Server: 6
Player: /me Last Number Rolled: 6/6, 0/20, 0/50

Player: roll d20
Server: 11
Player: /me Last Number Rolled: 6/6, 11/20, 0/50

Same sequence applies with roll d50...

If the player rolls a number from saying roll, roll d20 or roll d50, update status message and change the number from 0 to what ever number you have rolled. If you have reached the numbers that you need (6, 20, 50) then you must keep those numbers in your status message and work on getting the next number you need. If you manage to get all 3 numbers from roll (6/6), roll d20 (20/20) and roll d50 (50/50), then you have won the round and will be added to the winners list.

Rules
> The person who rolled the number, only they can update their status message for that roll.
> You are only allowed to use the Server Bot on the PB2 Chat for it to roll your number.
> If you manage to get all 3 numbers on your status message (should look like this - Last number Rolled: 6/6, 20/20, 50/50) then you shall screenshot PROOF that you have won the round and send it to me or M16's inbox.
> No cheating or taking other people's rolled numbers

Sweet, can't wait to play this one. So, I would only say "roll", "roll d20" and "roll d50"? And, a valid reason for a winner to show you or MI6 is to use the LightShot? I think this one's fair enough. Would love to play this.

Also, been wondering what's going to be the prize for the winners?

I say this event has no official awards at all, it's completely luck-based, I talked with the event creators via PB2-chat and they refuse to do so, instead trying to be mean to me and say things that have nothing to do with the situation.

Reason's is the "event" is completely luck-based, I would understand something like "Go on X level and kill X ghosts without dying, show a screenshot"

But this is completely random, thus unfair and effortless for the participants.

Ah, okay, that's kinda disappointing to me. Refusing to talk with someone. Not nice.

No you have to roll 3 perfect rolls. For example 1-6 you have to roll 6/6, 1-20 you have to roll 20/20, 1-50 you have to roll 50/50 if you roll all three of those you win the round. Win 2 out of 3 and you get a prize which is TBD. Ill say this again roll 6/6 20/20 50/50 and you win the round. Win 2 out of three to get the prize.

At the moment, we need to think about whether this even may happen or not, I know you guys are disappointed about what happened between us and so we are sorry. Having a huge argument over a single event just wasn't nessessary, maybe we were all just fustrated and over whelmed.We did try and do the best we can but instead of a luck based event you wanted something more like a skill based. Still, better luck in the future I guess.

Excuse me?

No. Silverteen was respectfully criticizing your horribly luck-based unfun event, and you all reacted with what's equivalent to 'la la la I'm not listening', and you say 'maybe we were all frustrated'? No, that's not an excuse.

'We did try and do the best we can' This is you begging for pity. Oh, we did our best, we can't do any better! Meanwhile you completely ignore any criticism and tips.

On the game itself, it's a horrible game that I don't think anyone would find fun. It's you rolling dice until you get the best possible roll. There is no reward, it's completely pointless. I can shorten your entire post to under 4 sentences.

Roll dice(d6, d20, d50) and screenshot it. Put it in your chat status. Send me the screenshot.

It's not fun. As someone who runs a roll to dodge and frequently talks with other game-masters about game mechanics and stuff, your game takes no effort to create and it's unfun. AI Robot & MI6 Agent 007's reaction was so immature. If it took 3 of you to come up with rolling a bunch of dice, maybe you should listen to criticism and spend more than 5 minutes thinking about your game.

late to the party but my 2 cents have yet to be deposited

you do realize events are supposed to have rewards, right? it's the point of doing them in the first place. it's what actually makes this random mess you made up an "event," not calling it one just for fun's sake. it's also obvious you completely missed the odds of winning the event in general

consider the chance of rolling a 6 on a d6, which is 16.667%

then consider the chance of a 20 on a d20, which is 5%

now consider the chance of a 50 on a d50, which is 2%

now consider the total chance of satisfying all three conditions, which are all independent of each other: (0.1667) x (0.05) x (0.02) = 0.000166, which is 0.0166%. there is literally less than 1% of a chance to win

not a desired chance of the desired outcome you want in an event, and it's all randomized on top of this. events are meant to provide all participants with an equal and fair chance/opportunity to win. the percentages eliminate the fair aspect as losing is far more common than winning here (really, you have a 99.9834% chance to "lose"), plus no rewards exist for winning and thus the outcome isn't seen as worth it and desirable in the first place. randomization itself isn't equal either. someone can "win" more often than someone else because their luck is simply just better. rngesus can literally hate you enough to make you unable to win the game at all

you call it an event but where is the "event" in this?

The event is poorly made in my opinion. l8 to party ik :'(

Firstly, I read the event carefully and I found absolutely no effort in it. Plus, the fact that you made it with 2 other people tells how much of an event-maker you actually are. So, please. Do another one yourself. I doubt you can though, because considering it took 3 people to make this creativity-lacking and failed event, I can pretty safely say you fail at start of trying to do same thing yourself, and let's not talk about a good, interesting event where people actually want to participate.

I can understand events where people are like: "Go to <insert map ID here> and kill the most powerful enemy there. Do a screenshot and send it to <insert event initiator or maker here>"

But, this event is completely luck-based. As incomp stated above, you have 99.99% chance to lose, and if you win (which is a wonder because you have 0.0166% chance to), you won't get any award or reward, which means players don't want to spend (or let's say, waste?) their time time participating in an event like this since they won't get anything back.

Next problem is strongly related to first one. Luck-basedness means that some people win more often than others, and some may never-ever-ever win, making the event unfair.

Also, considering your behavior, I am not sure it will get far. I mean, look at this:

Is this the behavior of you guys? I am bloody done. You guys call it an "event", but I don't see any event here + you refuse to make it better + you are trying to be mean to people who criticize your shit event. This doesn't go ANYWHERE.

Ok we get it the event is terrible it may be locked depending on Civil's opinion about it, and we should've came up with something better than a luck based event very sorry about and for not taking criticism in a respectful way.
