    Thinking to himself : Codding a slot machine should take ..30 minutes..making applying the textures...UV map done right.. err 1 hour or so.

Worked pretty well and is more dynamic than this thing.

    Sorry for the many posts people but I read the thread backwards.

    Let them add this feature: Players make it so their machines drop rare items! I love you! Awesome suggestion!

    Lol. Nothing takes only 30 minutes in development.

    Deploying to test alone will eat up that much.

    Talking about this?
    This game already has too much of an emphasis on solo play. There's no real rewards for group play.
    I should have specified. In PvE, it's not worth it to play as a group. Most of the time, killing monsters on your own is more effective because you don't have to split the loot with anyone, and there are no larger objectives that are worthwhile and require a group. No, the fire dragon doesn't count, because I said worthwhile. Yes, a lot of spawns are worth it if you team up with another person so you can trade rapid shots. I'm not denying that, but that's still not group PvE.

    Of course you need a guild to succeed in Darkfall. But why do you need a guild? They teach you about the game. They show you macro spots (where you don't even play the game, or you play it alone or unattended). They give you someone to macro off (once again, removing you from actually playing the game). They provide teammates for backing you up in PvP. Darkfall, in its current implementation, is limited to PvP, PvE, crafting, and exploring. Exploring is solo play. Crafting is solo play. PvE is solo play. That leaves PvP. Hell, these days I even like PvPing alone. That's unimportant though. The point is that there needs to be another layer of gameplay outside of PvP that requires group play or social interaction. Slot machines aren't the answer. Dice, card games, or any kind of multiplayer game are.

    Over the last three days, I've spent more time in game playing around with my guildmates trying to see who can get to the top of the tall trees in the hamlet we live in. We've made a game out of nothing. Imagine what the player base could do if given even the most modest tools!

    That's why I'm hoping slot machines will be accompanied by some of Tenebrion's suggestions, and that they'll allow player run vendors to give out quests (at the very least).

    AV needs to give us a collectable card game!

    Clearly Darkfall's Magic The Gathering / Pox Nora is the answer.

    Neat and all, but I'm going to pull the level on that slot machine and hope to win news on the expansion.

    Or... Maybe we can start trolling tweets from your developers and start speculation threads...?

    Fixed a few bugs and added some stuff for the Darkfall expansion. Now time for sleep. #code_code_code #darkfall

    Lame.

    Adding something like poker vs players is cool, adding slot machines is not.
    Chaos chests may be random and reward people randomly, but that's the fun. It's just enjoyable to be riding along and spot three chaos chests in a row, or to simply race with your clan mates to try and nab the chaos chest you all spotted. Sure they may be random and don't reward skill bet they are a FUN feature.

    Also to those of you complaining that the devs are "wasting" time on this I have two things to say. People have been begging for fluff like this since day 1 (and I'm not talking about release or beta). They may not seem like something that peaks your interest but it's something that a lot of players want. Secondly this is not something hard to do. It's honestly not like this is exactly a complicated feature.

    1. Press 'f'
    2. Take bet from bag
    3. Roll random number
    4. ????
    5. Profit!!!
