CasinoRPG Turns 4
April 16, 2018 @ 10:08 AM
CasinoRPG left beta testing 4 years ago today! A lot has changed in that time. We are so thankful for everyone that has been along for that ride, whether you were here all the way back during beta or if you've just recently joined the game. All of us at GoldFire Studios have immensely enjoyed getting to know so many of you. All of your continued support is what drives us to continue developing great new features and updates, and we can't wait for you to see what we've got in store for the future of the game!

Participants that reach their goal and the community goal will receive a limited edition Egg Hunt 2018 Trophy item!

UPDATE The crew info screen has been updated to show war stats for each crew.
UPDATE Crews are no longer added to wars automatically (so no need to manage your crew finances to try and get into or avoid war). Instead, there will now be a 48-hour period after war is declared for crews to join the war.
UPDATE Crew members no longer need to opt-out of war if they don't want to participate. Once the crew has joined the war, any member that wants to participate just goes to the battle tab on their crew window and joins their crew mates in the war. Only the players that specifically join the war are eligible for the team lottery (if one is needed).
UPDATE Players that didn't opt-in to the war still get a scorecard to follow their crew's team progress.
UPDATE The lottery for war teams will now run 24 hours in advance on the first day and 12 hours in advance on the others so you know well in advance if you are participating the next day.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY: With holidays so close to each other this year, we are running a one-day St. Patrick's Day promo on Saturday, March 17. A very limited edition St. Patrick's Day item will be available for purchase for 24 hours only (or until they run out). We'll release a batch of 100 of the item every 2 hours throughout the day so every timezone gets a chance. These are on a first come, first serve basis with a limit of 5 per person, per batch.

FEATURE Crew rankings have been overhauled with a more straight-forward (and now public in the wiki) formula to calculate the scores. There is also a new sorting option in the crew listings that allows you to view all-time rankings, last 30-day rankings, crew size and battle wins (the 30-day ranking won't have full date until 30 days after this update).
FEATURE Crew battles now have fixed-size teams to make them more fair between crews of different sizes. The team size will be set to the lower active user count between the 2 crews. The crews are then given the same 24-hour period to select which crew members will represent them in the battle.
FEATURE Wars will also now have fixed-size teams, but the individual members don't need to be selected. Instead, a lottery system will be used. The team that has more players than the team size will run a lottery each day of the war to select which players get to participate (each crew founder will always be selected).
FEATURE Individual players can now opt-out of wars (each crew's founder is required to participate).
*UDPATE* Taking a vote from your crew members is no longer needed to setup a crew battle.
