  • Wager System

    I do not know whether I am posting this in the right section, but I recently had an idea. We could have Wager matches. How do Wager Matches work? I thought that there should be sub-types. I think an example would be better:

    Let's say 10 people have chosen to play a Wager match and they have decided that the item they are going to wager on is Common. (You should be able to select before you search games, just like choosing All Pick or Single Draft. Now, after they pick their heroes, everybody chooses a Common item from their inventory. When the game is finished and one of the sides is defeated, the winning team gets the items the other team chose before the game begun. So, in the end, everybody gets his/her original item + an item from the losing team. The same applies for Uncommon, Rare, Mythical or etc. items. What do you guys think about this?

    Im against this sugestion, dota is not a betting game. You can do this with your friends but there should not be a system in game that helps you do that.

        +1, but i think they should wait till game's release, and we have a bigger playerbase.

          Meh I really don't think it would be a fun mode and it would divide MM to much.

            Actually I like this idea. I for one will probably not participate, but people with teams will. The fact that there are stakes involved will make the game that much more exciting.

The Acorn helmet is actually VERY fitting since it's natural shape is used. Also it is used for it's quality to withstand blows.
                Wow, amazing insight.

                  Wagering in a game you play may be troublesome.
                  I have a better idea - wagering as a spectator. There can be special matches in live section that accept 'bets', and during start of it you can bet on either team. It will show how many people bet on each team, and winning can be proportional to that(50 bets on radiant, and 100 on dire? Well, if radiant wins, aside from your bet you get 2 items instead of 1!) Then it's same as you proposed - if the team you chose wins, you get more items.

                    I LOVE to gamble. So im in the "wager league"
                    Common wager
                    Uncommon wager
                    Rare Wager
                    etc...etc...


                    I would love to see those mm ques, with the possibility of making a 2x iteam each side bet, if all ppl agree or at least 80% to up the ante so to say.

                    Take my money! IM IN!
                    one thing i dont get is how rude can ppl get... lets be civil ^^

                      I have a for free wagering system on my forum. It uses the forum currency and features the following:

                      Prop bets (over under, hero bans, first blood, first tower kills etc.)
                      Payouts and ratios
                      Brackets
                      You can check out a few matches here and old matches that are closed here

                      The only limitation is that I cover professional matches mainly.

                      Mods / admins feel free to edit. Thanks.

                          People would bet treasure boxes or stuff everyone has (we know "common", "uncommon" etc doesn't really represent their frequency of appearance...)
                          You should know what item you're playing for. But then again, people will look for games that give them an item they want, and that would make it hard to find a MM game, because of a few items being desired by many people. Or the items should be chosen right before the game, in a dialog box where the first player would insert his item, the second player his, and they should both agree, just like normal trading is done.


                          Anyway, that feature would take more than a while to be made by the devs, and I don't think it's worth spending time on, instead of implementing heroes and actual gameplay improvements...
