And I don’t mean abyssal rolls. I mean real gambling i.e poker or even games similar to the player made enterprises of the past. I remember when somer blink was active there was a huge community of people that rallied around it, even more so around Iwantisk. There’s obviously a huge market for it in eve so why not run with it?
An idea for card games would be for you to only be able to play other people docked in stations and the bet limits would increase in lowsec and furthermore in nullsec. This would add a new dynamic to the game and from a business standpoint, would mean more people buying plex. You could have tournaments in key systems which would increase traffic which would support more emergent gameplay. Having your avatars in their shiny new hats sat around a table in Rancer playing a game of texas hold em sounds pretty enticing.
