    Point gambling throws off the world rankings....it can show people who don't have much skill. People can shoot up in points very quickly and stay high in ranks if they get lucky. Example: PlayerNew. Yes, he has skill, and yes, he can play, but a lot of those "overnight" points came from gambling. Plus, if you are an addict, like me, you gamble your points down to zero. It's too much power.

    But points reflect skill. How do you get points? By winning. How do you win? With skill. Gambling would just show luck, and then the leaderboard wouldn't mean anything.

    Yeah, I think points should just be about skill/wins. I wish I'd never had point gambling, it did throw off the rankings quite a lot (poor random generators didn't help..) , made them unrealistically high.

    Eh, just like version 1, huh? That would make a top payout of 5000 coins. But then a new tank prize may have to be awarded.

    But if someone got really lucky (there's a very slim chance, but it could happen), they could potentially win 50000 points, which would definitely shift the scores.

    It should be back in trend really. It was real way and real fun. It actually improves your skill.

    I wish point gambling was back. I'm pretty decent, but disconnections, lag, and unfair teams really skew my pts. With point gambling, I can get a few of my points back that I lose from such causes.

    better off without points gambling, last i know you can't win big anyway.. correct me if i'm wrong the last adjustment the biggest you can win was about 1000-5000 career points- hmm i'm probably wrong on this? so not worth it. i gambled about 4000 points straight , 10 points each time. didn't win anything. My points dropped from 3500 to 1000 before ( note that i win some, but not significant enough to add my points ).
    i won 1000 points once but hey, i lost more than that.

    Default We should get both!!!

    Cuz it could be fun to gamble cp and coins.

    Yeah no points gambling back. The biggest you can win is 50k.
    For anyone who knows me from a long time ago I've started playing again but don't expect me to be as competitive as I once was (just play for fun now).:wheelchair: In Game account: Soccerfu Current points: 90k+

    I think its 5k, actually. Im over CP gambling now. I mean, id like it back, but like Seth said, it did throw the rankings off quite a bit. And too, I lost way more then I ever won, but hey. It was fun while it lasted.
