    So, I'm sure everyone has been in this situation on Minigames where you get killed a lot on a map and you run out of cash. Being able to place bets on teams not only serves as a solution, but adds a fun edge to mods like minigames overall. The mod is pretty much harmless because it doesn't affect people who don't want to bet. But enough about what I think, what about you guys?

      But can't you just move to spec and back to get full cash again?

        I play on different MG time to time and betting is always fun. I'm down for this. :party:

        Who has time for that!?

        This sounds like a fun thing to have but isn't a solution; you could bet and lose your money, then you would need to rejoin a team as nez suggested which would defeat its purpose as a solution. A solution would be to reset cash to 16k every round.

          Don't bet on the wrong team=profit? Also, there's nothing wrong with having more than one solution to an issue.

          But I digress, whether it's a solution or not, it's still fun to have.

          We only play smee and nipper house where you use money to buy guns. Just add a market system that gives credits every time you win a bet.

          Then what are you gonna use your credits for ? Skins, hats, tails ? Please don't add any market bullshit to mg.

          And those maps are some of the most played maps in the server. In regards to your market system comment, what?

          Betting for cash doesn't makes any sense because:

          The only way to make this happen is adding a market system or store (whatever you call it), where players can bet for market credits then use their credits for something. Have you ever been to any other mg servers where players get credits/points for betting and rank ? They have store where you can use your credits to get hats, tails, skins, and fancy stuff.

          I like mg because it doesn't have any tails, hats or whatever they have in store bullshit.

          If you add this betting thingy, please make it only for fun.

          Whoa there, I'm not suggesting a market system.
          This plugin may or may not be outdated but it still shows what I'm trying to suggest here: https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?p=763549

            I've been wanting a betting system on MG for a while now, joining spec to get cash back is laaaaame.

                Instead of !bet we could totally use actual mini games on the server instead of course maps/multigames

                  I understand Brian hates coursemaps which is why we haven't had any recent additions. But we have a lot of multigame maps and alot of just regular shoot out maps that most people don't like (except for nipperhouse). Can you clarify what types of minigames maps you're referring to? I'm a little out of touch.

                  I think the main reason people don't like them is because we don't have a !checkpoint system. I could be wrong though. I just know Course servers like to use those systems.

                    I'd play mg a lot more if we had course maps.

                    minigames is such an umbrella term, but back then it was singular themed maps and the RTV timers/map timers were really short so you wouldn't be on one map for more than 20 minutes. Multigames sort of combines it, but in the wrong way that it doesn't limit what maps get played and usually everyone gets bored really quickly when people pick the same minigame over and over, or they usually require skill or luck, like the slide awps/shotgun maps or "cut the fruit". It's sort of hard to please everyone but something new needs to be done because I feel the current server rotation is super stale, and I don't think i'm alone on this.

                      Its more because there's no respawn.
