ISML 2017 Wooden Casino - Diamond

Welcome to ISML Wooden Casino, where you go big or go home! (not really)

NOTICE: INTRODUCING NEW GAMEPLAY ELEMENT UP FOR DISCUSSION. PLEASE READ!


New
  • In addition to the old gameplay, each player now has a choice to bet on who will win the necklace/pendant of that respective period.
  • The chips you use to bet on necklace/pendant will be from the original 100 chips you are given and whatever you might earn later.
  • The necklace/pendant chips cannot surpass 1/4 of your remaining chips (a.k.a if you bet right at round 1, you can only use 25 chips on necklace/pendant for the maximum)
  • You can bet on necklace/pendant whenever you want. However, the multiplier for your winning chips will be reduced by 0.5 as each round passes, from the maximum of x4.0 to the minimum of x1.0.
  • For instance, if Woody places 40 chips on Saber before Ruby Round 1 ends, he will receive 40*4 = 160 winning chips in the end (making it 200 in total). If he places the same amount of chips on Saber but on Ruby Round 2, however, he will only receive 40*3.5 = 140 chips. Similarly, if he did the same but after round 6 ends, he can only receive 40*1 = 40 winning chips for the maximum.
  • You can also edit your bets however and whenever you want. However, the multiplier will be calculated from the last time you edit your bet. (A.k.a if you place your bet at the start of round 1 but make an edit in round 2, the multiplier will be x3.5 instead of x4 )
If you have any questions or suggestions for the new element, make a post right in this thread if you may.


Old stuff
Rules:
  • Everybody starts with 100 chips (It doesn't matter if you started later than everyone else).
  • Before the voting period of each round ends, each player will try their best to bet on the character(s) they think will win with the smallest VD.
  • The maximum amount of chips a player can bet is half of their remaining chips. (a.k.a everyone can only bet 50 chips max at the beginning.)
  • There is no limit on the number of characters you wanna bet on, as long as the total amount of chips you bet does not exceed half of your remaining chips.
  • The winning chips are those on the top 3 characters winning with smallest VD that round. (For instance: Chips on Tomoya, Aoba, Subaru on round 1 are the winning chips.)
  • Chips betted on wrong characters are all gone (of course), while winning chips return to their players and grant them an extra amount of chips calculated according to the formula below
  • At the end of each round, the person with the most winning chips gain a bonus of 10 chips.
Formula: [(x-y)/z]*a (round up)
  • x is the total amount of chips betted on wrong characters that round.
  • y is the amount of chips the winning player bet on wrong characters that round.
  • z is the total amount of winning chips that round.
  • a is the amount of score one person get after applying multiplier to their winning chips accordingly. (Chips on character winning with 1st closest VD is multiplied by 1.5 / 2nd closest VD by 1.2 / 3rd closest VD by 1)
ExampleShow
In round 1, the top 3 smallest VD for winning characters are: Tomoya (1 VD), Aoba (89 VD), Subaru (89VD) (Since there's a tie at 2nd smallest VD, both of them are counted as 2nd and there's no 3rd this round)

Suppose total wrong bets that round was 200 and the only 2 person with winning chips are:
Kiwi bet: Emilia 20 Subaru 30
Woody bet: Tomoya 10 Aoba 40

Result:
Kiwi: [(200-20)/80]* (30*1.2)= 81. After extracting 20 chips on Emilia, she won 61 chips that round.
Woody: [(200-0)/80]* (10*1.5 + 40*1.2)= 158. He won 158 chips that round (#woodyhaxbanwoody)
Notes:
  • If there was a tie between 1st or 2nd winning smallest VD, there would be two 1st one 3rd, or one 1st two 2nd respectively. If the tie happened at 3rd place, there would be 4 winning characters that round.
  • Staffs with access to results can still play, but please submit your bets 12 hours prior to the end of voting period.
  • You can always edit and change your bets later, just don't do that after the voting period had ended.
  • Regarding submissions, I will be lenient and accept posts/edits up to 2 hours late if it was the first time. Don't expect me to do the same thing for the 2nd time you're late tho.
  • Rules and formulas are still under development, and are up for discussion anytime. However, once the first round start, it would not be likely that I change any of the rules until next period, unless major holes that can ruin the game appear.
Prize: Each period will has one winner. The winner is rewarded with one banner of their favorite character. The top 3 is also rewarded with melonpans!!

Interestingly enough, the top 3 is quite similar to Rupy period.
That 1 chip to Megumi from IGNITE made the decisive difference~

Now here is question. If I want to change my necklace/pendant prediction do I need to follow 1/4 rule? Can I do whatever I want with previously betted chips or do I need to extract them from either 72 or 97 total?
Anyway:
New(?) NecklaceShow
Megumin - 24/25 (Max I can. Ignore if extracting from 72)

Katou - 6

NOTE: Necklace/pendant column only reflect changes of current round, so if you didn't edit your necklace/pendant bet, you should see it as 0.
Round 2 ResultsShow

  • Chibaka made the most impressive comeback ever as he climbed from the last place straight to 1st place. Is that a :banned: i'm smelling?
  • Also for that matter, you guys picked the extremely right time to perform well at the same time, or else Chibaka would have led for at least 100 from 2nd place, from what i calculate. But he didn't, so well played lol
  • IGNITE didn't even mess up, but her strategy played against her today as too many people got the good bet.
  • Meanwhile, Veon took the opportunity and raise to the 3rd place but not so far from the rest. Looks like it will be a promising battle for this period.
