Fun things?

    One fun thing I would enjoy in the game is to sit at a card table with 3 others and play a game of spades or a game of gin. I play in "there" and you can play spades and get skills doing it. That is something that never really gets boring too. I posted this here since I can't post in wiki

    Yea or playing like Texas Holdem. I love playing that on PokerStars. It would be cool if we could play for chips or somethin.

    although poker is a great idea as the other card games poker could be considered a gambling game and probably wouldn't be done ;( although hgow rediculous was removing slot machines, it was virtual gambling? with play money. Its not like you won real money.

    The problem is that EA is gonna enable you to turn your play money into real money. That means that the play money that comes out of slot machines could be turned into real money, thus creating real gambling. Casinos were my favorite thing in TSO, I'll never get over the loss.

    Its easy for us to say "we want you to make the game more fun" but what do we want?

    We all say that the game used to be fun..

    But nothing has really changed before that.

    We went for multiple years without any major updates, and we are all still here.


    What was different 3 or 4 years ago that made the game more fun and exciting?

    I think the only thing that changed really... is that you get used to things. The new and exciting is now the norm.
    Honestly, I lived in a casino for a while, and I found nothing to be more monotonous then feeding a slot machine money. I don't like it in real life either though, I'm the only girl who goes to Vegas and doesn't touch one gambling device [​IMG]. But the point is, just about everything in TSO is done to pass the time while chatting. You can chat and skill, you can chat and jam, you can chat and pizza even (which is one of the few things with some thought into it)

    I think mini games (as have been discussed so many times before) would bring things to life. Look @ pogo and all the people who join in on that to earn those badges. If that could be something inside TSO... little goals, little games to play. Achievements.

    I know Luc mentioned bringing some of EA games into EA Land, I think thats a great idea too.

    Making the most money, maxing the most skill, having the most popular lot, or the most rares is something that many of us have achieved. After that you need something more.

    The most basic difference between then and now was more people......about 5 times more people. [​IMG]

    And one of the reason there were more people is because the game was new and exciting to explore. Once players had 'been there, done that and got the t-shirt", they started falling away like leaves in the fall.

    So I feel we need to have things that allow us to constantly create new adventures in the game....because thousands of imaginations set loose, are better, even, than Luc's awesome team. [​IMG]

    On the Wiki, ( Quests / Missions / Tasks) Greg is talking about creating a 'creator', that would allow us to create items to use for contests or even MOMI lots for specific uses, like quests, scavenger hungs, murder mysteries, and various sports arenas. The possiblities would be endless! [​IMG]
