October competition & couple other updates



Good evening,
A few changes so far, more to come.

Casino
For those who have not noticed, I have updated the ROULETTE game at the Dead City Casino. I see a lot of you have been playing, I've got quite addicted to it myself. Currently overall players have won more than what has been spent! Good to see so many lucky players.

Lottery
Last weeks lottery with the same person first & third, was not meant to happen. I have patched up the problem & will keep an eye in-case it comes up again. This is the reason why features like these have to run in BETA for so long. I get a lot of people complaining that they didn't win when they bought $20,000 worth of ticket against someone who bought $10,000,000 worth of ticket. The lottery system works of a very simple random system. To help people understand ticket purchases of other players after a lottery draw is complete, you can now view the top ticket purchases. As I'm not here this Saturday I ran the lottery TONIGHT to test this, it will run again on Saturday as normal. You can now see all the current ticket purchases for this week. Lottery is now running V2.2 Beta.

Forum
Few people have wanted to be able to control how many posts are viewed on a thread page. Well over in your account options you can now change this. The maximum is 100. This will apply to the normal forums, coven forums & roleplaying forums.

Blood letters
As per your requests you can now turn off blood letter smilies. You can now also view your SENT messages. Only messages you send from NOW on will show as a link in the sent messages page for you to view. There is also a quick delete link for you to quickly delete the blood letter notification.

Marriages
This isn't really a change but there are rumours flying around that there will be more marriage achievements/quests. This is NOT true. There will no further marriage achievements or quests!

OCTOBER COMPETITION
With the Halloween events only a couple weeks away, lets kick it off with a Halloween themed competition!




The task:
Pumpkins are great right? You always get people making funky pumpkins and this time you can get plasma for it! Go the your local store which sells pumpkins (I know they're selling them already). Carve out a really cool design & take a picture! To prove your picture is legit, you must write your ID on a piece of paper and place it somewhere in the picture before taking it. I've come to realise that people will Google pumpkins, write their ID on with MS paint and submit it. These are NOT allowed. My favourite pumpkins will win!

You get bonus points for making the picture RoB-Themed somehow. No photo-shopping allowed at all.

1st place: 100 plasma
2nd place: 50 plasma
3rd place: 25 plasma

All entries must be submitted to the ROB BOT by October 30th for display on the 31st. (Send a blood letter to ID 2 with the subject "October Pumpkin Contest")

EDIT: 1 Picture per player, but you can have as many pumpkins in that picture as you like.

Halloween events & more coming mid-October. More NEW features on its way this week as well as testing out a new coven war system. Lots to be excited about.

Awesome changes Ash. Shame it's hard to get a decent sized pumpkin in Australia.

So if we wanted to make two images on one pumpkin can we submit two pictures?

this competition is not for those who dont have pumpkins nearby,it will be better if competitions are with game related instead of real life! i hope things go in its limit next time....

Nice, finally some updates that are needed. I think it will be a little difficult to make a pumpkin RoB themed

DarkAsh said...

@above Anonymous, that's why you get bonus points.

Chaos Mayhem and Sinister said...

what about a halloween layout competition? seems like everyone is getting into it.

Angelically Challenged said...

Kinda sucks to be in a country where Halloween is basically ignored. Plus I wouldn't spend up to $40 on a pumpkin

Guildythewicked said...

Holy crap!! $40 for a pumpkin!!!!???? Mine cost $4.
