Horse Race


5 posts in this topic

Posted

I think everyone would love Horse Racing in this game. A person should be able to purchase a Horse Racing Permit and enter there Horses to race or bet on other player Horses. Hire a jockey to race your Horse and many factors to determine the outcome for the horse to win. Race for fun when ever and maybe have a weekly event to race for competition/money. Would encourage people to breed more horses and to go out and catch. There should be a Horse Arena in one of the towns where everyone can go and gather to watch. :)  Different races for different skills. Jumps, sprints and ect...

While I like/understand the core idea here, there are two big flaws with this one:  One, any horse of a higher tier instantly has an advantage, and is USUALLY easy to pick out, even if Tier info isn't provided at the track, so that's who everyone will bet on, severely decreasing winnings, if not completely reducing them to 0 silver.  Two, given the general applicability of point one, this would also enable some serious p2w hustling.  Buy a horse exchange coupon, make your tier 8 lvl 30 horse look like a generic tier 1, bet on yourself to win, and rake in a huge jackpot as the odds would be against you based on betting patterns.  Change channels, repeat, make millions, then change it's name and repeat the process.  Displaying tier info would get rid of this, but re-enable point one with a vengeance.

Unless it was all NPC horses with all randomized stats, and randomized appearances, with randomized names, ridden by NPC Jockeys, and could not be interfered with on a player level, this wouldn't be even remotely feasible as a feature.  But, removing the horse-entering makes it a lot less fun of an idea, at the same time.

It is truth that it would be fun to have content like that in BD but, there a lot of more things to implement before your suggest that would make BDO a greater MMO.

There actually are horse races in the game, but they have not been implemented yet. Same tier horses can race against each other. I do not believe there is gambling though.

Here is a video of an example

I do see your points which would kind of cause an issue... But races done by tier would be good. Even without any kind of prize it would still be a fun idea.^_^
