What risk would you take to get 1,000,000 ToriCredits? Would you risk gambling your items and already existing tc? Would you risk stealing textures or plagiarizing art? Would you risk scamming innocent users in the market place? How about risk getting banned?
Getting banned is probably one of the most feared things that can happen to you in a game or forum. Not just not being able to play but the shame and scrutiny that follows. In the event “Deadly Game” banning is used as the equivalent of death if you fail certain tasks. But what is the Dealy Game you ask! It is an event put on by RuBash. Toribash’s Russian community. Personally I wouldn’t go anywhere near it. The basic details about the event say this much:
- It’s a mostly forum based game where you have to carry out different tasks.
- It’s sponsored by hampa.
- The losers will get a ban depending on what round they lose on.
- There is only one winer and the prize is 1 million ToriCredits.
- Just under half of RuBash’s funds for this year went into this event.
But what specific tasks do we have to complete? I hear you exclaim again. That’s really all it says. An example was given which goes like so: “Read texts on the previous letters of the alphabet.” You know what it means? I sure don’t.
And here’s some food for thought. Have you seen how many users have signed up so far? Now recall what the event page says. “Only one winner.” Therefore all the others will be losers. Meaning, everyone who signed up except for one user will end up with a ban of some sort. :/ Oh, and did I mention that once you’ve signed up, you can’t withdraw your application? Read all the information carefully before making a decision to enter or not.
Summing up, to me this event falls just short of the category: The cake’s a lie. Do a list of tasks you know nothing about and succeed=Get tc. If you don’t really care about being banned and just want to make some money, be my guest. But beware that the chances are not in your favor.
