Let's put it this way ... 25% population online playing poker ... While we see 1 table max on obsidian!

So let's play a fair game between classics ocean and dark seas and force a poker rake on classic oceans!

Sincerely from a player who wants to increase players coming at sea instead of wagering!

+1 even removing 20-200k tables will help down the line, so theres more balance in the ocean.

a Rake should be applied to all wagers or none

A large reason people don't poker on Obsidian in my opinion is the low stakes not the rake.

I often just go to Emerald and poker for the fun instead of playing Obsidian as the high stakes is way more fun then playing for hours to make a a few hundred thousand where you can do it in 1 a hand on the other ocean.

Maybe no loitering signs on the docks could help.

Reality is poker and other parlor games fill time when you can not spend time on the ocean and provide a reason to log in. Some days I don't feel like hoping on a ship and I will just do tournies others poker, others shop puzzles. The great thing about this game it has many different things to do, if I don't want to hop a ship and the parlor games were not there I would log in to one of the many poker apps on my phone or puzzle games also on my phone.

TLDR
All for a wager rake across all parlor games, on all oceans it is a great poe sink.

The only reason Emerald still has some players is poker. Go play Obsidian Emerlaus.

Weird idea that may work
- Add rake + remove 20k-200k table from Emerald
- Leave the less-populated oceans as it is.

You may slowly start to see some kind of activity on those less populated oceans as the die hard poker fans will need to find a way to get their fix. Emerald won't take too much of a negative hit. That or I could be completely wrong and it would be the end of the game as we know it

That is probably a good idea, removing 20-200k poker from emerald so then it forces the poker players to play poker elsewhere for 20-200k poker, great idea!

The parlor badge on Meridaian would be ridiculous with the outrageous dub prices. The reason people poker is to fund kades/make money... no much of a purpose on dead oceans. Poker is not the reason people don't pillage, people play the part of the game they want to at the time. It may be poker, it may shop puzzles or even a pillage or even a SMH or Float.

Forcing people into parts of the game they don't want to do or removing the parts they enjoy will not help the game grow, but help it to die quicker.

I don't know why the parlor badge exists in it's current state.

At the very least it could be tweaked to allow wager-less gaming at all times.

Sometimes I'd rather enjoy hopping on to socially play spades or hearts or something but there's no point since it's not a free day.

The Dev(s) pretty much did that when, they reduced the blockade window without players approval so whats the difference?

I stay off the poker tables for the most part but sadly, some ONLY play poker. It is very sad to see when there is nothing on the Notice Board but the Inn is packed with poker players. :(
