    Exclamation Casinos

    What are your plans, moderators, to fix the obvious increase in casino warp worlds and casino worlds? Are you only relying on the players to report the worlds, or do you have a plan to decrease or completely get rid of casino warp worlds and casino worlds?

    They've been "working on it" for the past few years yet nothing has been done yet. I don't think they'll ever be able to end casino worlds.

    It's impossible to get rid of every single casino. But, it is possible to decrease the amount of them.

    It ain't easy, but not impossible to create a system that scans a world everyday or so to see if it contains the classic casino block layout. Although there are still ways in which players could create casino related worlds, this mechanism would still lower the current amount quite drastically.

    Most best but controversial way is to just remove the roulette wheel's random number generator mechanic. I mean, just get rid of it. A majority of casino worlds uses the roulette wheel for their bidding and betting so tackling it would create a decrease in casinos in Growtopia.

    There is a multitude of ways that casinos use RNG elements of GT to bet. Removing roulette wheels would just be a mild inconvenience.

    I understand they could just use other RNGs but I don't quite understand the inconvenience of removing the Roulette Wheel's RNG. The fact that it is their one stop-go-to when gambling should not be ignored. I don't think people would trust RNG outside of GT in fear of being scammed or lied to.

    Edit: Nevermind what I said above, I reread your comment. This is the block-drop system right?

    It's very easy. Just remove the Roulette wheel item from the game. Already the sole purpose of roulette wheel farms is to sell them to people who want to build the casino world. This stuff is useless in the game, it will only increase the number of people playing in the casino. Probably after the item leaves the game I'm sure they'il try to play with dice. We'il never stop them. xD

    There are many ways - anything that is RNG that can be easily replicated by the player at will can be used in casinos for betting. One of them is literally gem drops which cannot be removed whatsoever.

    We should use the power of shame to eliminate these casinos.

    For example, at the gazette, we should put the name of these casino owners/players along with other wrongdoers with really bad titles, such as :

    Code:
    For today's criminals :
    - Person1 - The Drop Game Crapper
    (He hosts drop games)
    - Person2 - Sir Micropenis Gambler
    (He does casino)
    - Person3 - Botty McPerson3, The Stupid Botboy
    (He uses bots)
    - Person4 - The Homo Password Kinky Boy
    (He steals accounts)
    etc, etc.
    (Note that only big criminals should be shamed this way, otherwise there'd be too many - the smaller ones can wait)

    that way all these people will be shamed out by the good growtopians (turns out there's a lot) and be forced out of the game by the constant shameless PMs and BCs.

    Other criminals will be forced out as well.

    There are hundreds of people playing and hosting casinos. For the first few days this change is enacted, the gazette literally will become a list. Imagine the amount of space it would take up.

    Besides, on the Internet there is no shame for these types of people. They could take off one mask and fit another one on. They can do anything unless they are people who think and feel regret for their actions.

    There must be another but much more effective way in decreasing casinos in Growtopia.

    Perhaps...

    You know how most casinos uses chance blocks? Let's ignore the other gambling types for now and focus on the three items used commonly on casinos :
    - Roulette Wheel
    - Roshambo blocks
    - Dice blocks

    These blocks are purely RNG blocks, giving out a completely random sequence of numbers or results every time. What if, instead, they're not random?

    *vsauce music*

    Look, what if these blocks follow a pre-determined pattern? These are not in rising or falling order, but pseudo-random sequence.

    For example, Dice blocks could follow a pattern of 5-2-1-3-6-4-3-4-1-5-6-2, and it keeps looping every time you use it.

    Yes, this would kill off those "try not to die" games with 6 chambers or stuff like that, but people will look for another game, so it's mostly fine.

    What matters here is that IF those three blocks uses a pre-determined pattern, most players would not play casinos anymore.

    Sooner or later (within some few weeks or a month) people will find out about these patters, and players won't play casinos anymore, because it's no longer luck-based.

    We can deal with the other dirt breaking shenanigans later when we're done with the big boys.
