A very bad idea: (Lotto is always a scam) If you haven't seen it yet… New Magincia will have a lottery for the new, in town, plots. Each is 15x15 max. 22 lots per facet. These will make up the new town with a few NPC buildings. Each plot has it's own marker where you can buy tickets… unlimited amounts of tickets. Who really wins? What this does… is remove gold from the system. They could have easily set up a lotto where you are bidding for 1 of the 22 plots… in the same glass-jar. Or just do 1 ticket per account for 1 of the 22. No, it's per plot. You can easily dump 100 million gold into 1 plot… or divide your money to go into a couple or each. So, in other worlds… you can put all your money into one basket and loose it all… or spread your money around and still loose every gold piece of your 100 million. And I’m sure not saying that removing gold from the system is a BAD thing! It's a GREAT thing… but what will the cost of these plots be? From my small experiment, I’m estimating these new plots on Atlantic will run someplace between 200 million… and a full castle in Tram. Record prices, the likes have never been seen. My experiment was bidding on lot SW-2, just north of the docks. Total tickets sold: 150,143. Price per ticket: 2k, each. Total gold sink before the plot was awarded: 300,286,000 gold. Remember… that’s over 300 million gold for a 15x15 plot. I pooled some money, bought 21,300 tickets. The sign gave me a 1 in 9 chance of winning. My gold spent: 42,600,000 gold. You could have thrown a bag with the 42.6 million down at the Luna bank and have just as much for the effort. Nothing. Didn’t win it… but that was not the point of the experiment. Now… I know there are people who have no problem throwing 300+ million into a silly idea like this, but I work hard for my nearly worthless game money. hehe. Not happening. I’ll keep my town. Just thought I would share. This should take billions out of the game, easily. Just based on the test shard, if all plots went 300m in tickets, that would be a 6,600,000,000 total, just talking about Tram. Seeing we all play Atlantic, you could maybe bump that a minimum of 10x? 60 billion gold. Could prices for goods actually go up with such a dent put in our community gold supply?
