9th Trials - Betting! http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php?topic=58647.msg1193081#msg1193081
« on: June 14, 2015, 10:12:13 PM »

This Trials Finals it was all about picking the favorites...

And going 11-0 by picking all and only the favorites (even going so far as to bet against himself) and taking 1st place is Zawadx. 
Zawadx will be awarded 10k :electrum and a giant * in the hearts of the fans.
Going 10-1, picking all the favorites except himself, is DANIEELA. 
DANIEELA will be awarded 2k :electrum.




Please answer each question; make sure you spell your user name correctly.
You can send in as many bets as you like, but for only the last will be kept.
The betting is weighted, so betting on an underdog has a greater payout than betting on a favorite. 
- This scaling is determined by the upgrade advantage and is also affected by percent of the vote each player receives. 
- In the event of a tie we will "figure out something on the spot (that probably involves chat dice)"
Happy betting!






And because it was fun last time, I am bringing back the betting mini-game as well!  Do your best to guess how the community will bet and try to figure out:

The Close Call
  • (match-up with the most evenly distributed bets)
:time - Where Spike and W3 both got the exact same number of votes, despite Spike being the 3 upgrade favorite.

The Obvious One
  • (the person with the most bets (or the least bets) <- will be the same match-up either way)
:air :gravity :light - All tied with 31 bets apiece for the favorites Afdarenty, Ginyu, and Zso_Zso (respectively).  Those big time favorites could make for some big swings if someone gets upset!

These Odds Seem Right
  • (the match-up where gamblers bets closest approximate the initial odds)
:life - With only a 0.97% voter effect on the payout.

The Not-So-Dark Horse
  • (the initial underdog who receives the most bets)
:time - W3 got 16 votes, making him the most-bet-on underdog, followed by jonathancrazyj and mathman101 at 13 bets apiece.
