My new character was on two places trying to join a poker table. He wasn't able to join because of entry fee or just seeing the money on the table. It's completely impossible for new players/characters to have fun while playing poker, that's the reality.

Gave this thread a decent read, and while I believe there's a ton of valid points here I think we can't just tear down the gambling community/scripts/establishments. I've worked in Casinos and bars where VLT/gambling is available and these people are almost exactly like some role-players when they are gambling. They don't speak, look at anyone, talk to anyone, but they sit there for hours hitting a button/betting and the only confrontation or interactions they have are with bar managers/front desks where they can cash in/cash out. That's it. It's the same deal that @Yoak mentioned above- not a single word was said before he had ran out of cash. When I work the door (in real life) I try and talk to these gamblers and they literally live in their own world - they're serious about gambling only, they're not there to make friends. I don't think it is the fault of those who enjoy gambling in the game, I think there needs to be some understanding that the scripts might need to be changed in order to combat this. At the end of the day, though, just because people aren't 'speaking' doesn't mean all players there need to sit in silence and watch their bank accounts hit $0. We need to keep things ICly like you're supposed to in roleplay: you can always just walk up to someone and create conversation. 

 

I've gambled maybe a handful of times on this server, and I never had a bad experience at all. Mind you, I can remember clearly roleplaying with other players, even at the table. People were roleplaying loosing big, and others were roleplaying their rather large wins. I'm okay if we're going to base this roleplay off emotion, but I don't think it needs to be at the point where placements of cards need to be roleplayed, etc. I remember playing Roleplay servers back in the day with no GUI's or scripts at all, and this is where the roleplay thrived in the gambling community. Get rid of the scripts, or we can just continue to let the scripts work for us instead- which I believe should be the only way right now. The common theme I find in this thread is that nobody roleplays: go ahead and create some roleplay there. If you're too nervous to create the roleplay environment, then why be there to begin with?

Only positive thoughts about gambling roleplay. In general, I adore casinos. If it is reliable and your steps while playing are smart, you can quickly get a lot of money. I have some years since I started playing in casinos, especially baccarat. I like to play in safe online casinos with my friends. Why baccarat? For me, it is a relaxing way to spend my evening. It is risky, and I have had some bad experiences, but everything is great now, and I am happy about that. So I am pro to all that is related to casinos.

It’s difficult to do well, with or without a script.

 

Scripts don’t *generally* promote roleplay, back when I used to play Poker nobody really said anything and it’s hard to actually ‘play’ poker like you’re supposed to (Since it’s a social deception game as much as a card game).

 

I see a lot of posts about overhauling the script but it’s mostly ‘good enough’, except when it physically breaks in Rage. I’d prefer roleplay was encouraged more with it, but at the same time that’d make it take so damn long.

 

Tl;dr it’s okay I guess but I don’t use it much.

I like them. It is a good way of making some money at the beginning of the game. In general, I love gambling. It is more than a hobby to me. Most of all, I am playing poker. But from time to time, I like to make a small slot deposit and try my luck. It is fascinating and addicting, and the moment when you win brings a lot of satisfaction. I started to gamble with my older brother, and this is the only thing we have in common, so maybe this is why I love gaming so much. We love communicating about funny moments we had while gambling.

Honestly on a professional table there isn't going to be a lot of chat, especially during hands. People are trying to figure each other out and their strategies.
