Winner gets money.
Loser loses it.

Sum is fixed or depends on total contribution value :wink:

Sounds scary. :o I wouldn't want to play for money.

Are you talking about two people betting on a game, or about some sort of tournament money-pool where all players contribute money to participate and The Winner Takes It All?

I think he is not talking about real money.
Your idea may be employed in game in terms of the indemnities payed for taking over another country.

I think that would make the game illegal in some countries... so it's a bad idea :)

What about me - I'm agreed with playing for money. But it should be quite separate tournament based on voluntary participation. I'm a businessman & I can pay even I'll lose. Sure, that there is also a lot players which can sacrifice some sum.
Suggest to state the cost for participation amounting $50-100. Rules are similar with little Clan war. It's necessary to fight on all present maps (including new maps for MAN). Getting scores is the same.
Depend on player's q-ty will be based main (2nd & 3rd accordingly) prize.
Waiting yr any comments.

I'd like once again to discuss this question.
Are there people wishing to participate this playing?

I think it's a good idea, but of course optional. I would suggest a fixed format for all money games, but with multiple betting tiers. For instance:

0.25 USD
1.00 USD
5.00 USD
10.00 USD
etc...

The format for a win/loss would be exactly the same regardless of tier.

The format is what might be a bit "iffy". Maybe something like best 3/5 match where both players play both sides (10 games total) on a planet of both player's choice.

As for money clan games, I would be strongly opposed to that. Too much pressure as is, and creates a mentality that would produce the opposite effect of what a clan is all about.

Excellent - one more interested person!!!
But I don't like at all the idea with paying for each game. It's better to start some kind of Tournament like previous ones. Add obligatory there new rules re Time out etiquette (w/a to Maelstrom's post), may be rectify some other things...
Participation costs around $50-100.00.

1st prize - 50 % from total sum
2nd prize - 30 % from total sum
3rd prize - 20 % from total sum

I think that's good idea...

I'm sure that only Masters will be participate in this one.
So, we need to avoid fighting on small planets where the result the mostly depends on disclosure.
Just only medium & big Planets are accepted cause it's a serious proposition, we need no any fortuity!!!

To be interested we need to have following number of Players:
- as minimum 20 ones but with $100.00/person;
- or 40 ones with $50.00/person.
I'm interested to take a part in such experience with Great impatience!!!

W/a to my personal experince, any game playing for money radically changes yr own feelings. As result, yr own skills became look not like before - you think hardly & make some mistake due to this. I'd like to say that Rocklizard hasn't made from iron, he's also human - that's his way to make also mistakes.

P.S. Additionally, there are always remain 2 others places - 2nd & 3rd ones!!! It's also good for yr own pocket & recover yr charges. Even if you'll not take any prize, there is always the possibility to repeat new Tournament. And if you win in new one - yr charges also will be recovered.
:lol:

There are so many games playing for money all over the world.
Why not our beloved MA & MAN?
Let's transfer our line on quite another stage!!!
Ok, may be it's too high for someone to pay $50.00. Let it be $20.00 but with list of Players not less 100 ones.
May be there are other thoughts - let's talk...

The problem is that at the end of the day it'll be down to the same 4-6 top ppl who'll win. U'd need to run more than 1 league type thing with different entering costs and possibly placing restrictions upon who can enter (prob by rank). I wouldn't enter as i know i can't beat certain ppl so like guerillaz says u'd just be handing the money over. Handicaps could be one way to change this but when RL money is involved it'll b very hard to get the balance right etc.

Instead of a league u could do it on the basic games when u challenge an opponent one of the options would be play for money where u'd enter a cash ammount both players would pay with the winner taking all. This would have to be optional of course. You might need to link this to creating 2 games (one from each side) where one player only taking the money if they win both games.

I'm agreed with last comments re restrictions but to play basic games for money it's necessary that devs make appropraite additions. For this they need to see the interest from Players.
That's why we need to start & try new Tournament like experience even with $5-10.00 participation.
Anyway we need to try!!!
