  StarCraft betting is now live!
Posted by: Arxos - 10-08-2017, 07:33 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hello any newcomers from StarCraft!

I am Arxos, creator of SpriteClub. You'll generally find me under the username "Erxos4" on Twitch (confusing, I know!).

SpriteClub is a site that was previously a betting site solely dedicated to certain live Twitch events (primarily fighting game related ones, but also events such as Games Done Quick and E3) as well as M.U.G.E.N betting.
This changes now! SpriteClub has been extended to interface with the SSCAIT stream's API, allowing it to support fully automated bets for the SSCAIT stream.

A few things you may like to know:

  • Currently you earn 3x normal XP on the StarCraft site, due to the longer matches.
  • AlwaysWhale and NeverDucky are in-house bots designed to prevent 1 dollar cash grabs and infinity odds by always going all in on both sides randomly.
  • The bets remain open for 90 seconds. Currently this does not account for any potential stream restarts, so don't wait with your bets in case a restart occurs!
  • Please inform me a stream restart causes a problem (e.g. next match changes while the bets are open) as this part isn't very well tested yet.
  • If anything else goes wrong, please inform me as well of course!

Furthermore, a number of site basics, explained in the M.U.G.E.N FAQ as well:


What is this stream?
Student StarCraft AI Tournament is an educational event, held annually since 2011. Students of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science submit the bots programmed in C++ or Java using BWAPI to play 1v1 SC:Brood War matches.
The SSCAIT stream is hosted at https://www.twitch.tv/sscait by SSCAIT. SpriteClub is merely using it to host bets and is not personally involved with the streaming process.

Can I get more info on the SSCAIT organisation?
Absolutely! SSCAIT has its own site over at https://sscaitournament.com/ that lists much more information about what the stream is about and how it functions.
This site includes a page that lists all bots, which can be found here. There, you can also vote on which bot you'd like to see duke it out next on-stream.

Is this real money?
No, all the money is fake.
Furthermore, a bailout is in place, a minimum amount that you cannot drop under. In other words, you can't go broke!
Your bailout amount is based on your level, read more below.

Experience
Experience is earned from betting on matches.
For each bet you gain at least 1 XP. If you win, you will also get XP equal to the odds on that fight (so if your payout is 4x your bet amount, you will gain 4 XP).
Lastly, your winstreak acts as a multiplier on XP earned. For every winstreak, XP earned is increased by 50%.

Levels
Once enough experience is earned, you'll gain a level. Levels affect your bailout.
Your bailout is equal to 185 + 15 * level (=200 on level 1) for matchmaking and tournaments.

How do I set my avatar?
SpriteClub is integrated with Gravatar. Simply sign up for Gravatar with the same e-mail address as you've registered with on SpriteClub and you'll be able to change your avatar.

Profile options
SpriteClub users have a number of customisation options. For one, SpriteClub will automatically ping you whenever a match opens for betting. The volume for this can be controlled in your profile, found by clicking on your name in the top right.
There are other settings in your profile as well, so check them out!



I hope you will enjoy your stay here and try out the other parts that this site has to offer.

Bug Mistakes in character database
Posted by: filozof - 01-08-2017, 06:39 PM - Forum: Roster - No Replies

This thread is where you can post missing or incorect stuff.



These characters  should have "sumin2393" as their author. I found his blog as a proof. Character Undine I sent few months ago (still in the debut pool) has the same author.

edit: it's "sumin2393" not "sum2393"

  SpriteClub vs SaltyBet (Features Graph)
Posted by: SuperSamJams - 20-05-2017, 11:00 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Hi guys!

I notice that when we typically get new visitors, some of us in chat attempt to explain all the cool and radical features we have to offer right off the bat (which can be a lot to take in at one time), and that some new users seem confused about it being a potential "SaltyBet clone / ripoff" that have a hard time telling the differences immediately.

I took the liberty of preparing an accurate Comparison Chart between the two websites for new visitors (with the help of SpriteClub users and registered premium users on SaltyBet), so that they will be able to quickly notice all the differences we have in regards to how our website handles matchmaking, tournaments, exhibitions, patches, crashes, betting, live events, etc.

Take a look below, and share it with new viewers coming in from SaltyBet, if you'd like to.

Question Are you Robin Hood?
Posted by: sanso - 05-05-2017, 08:37 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hi everyone,
 
since M0nkubus donates some of his money sometimes I thought of a system to "distribute" cash. I realize that this is something which needs to be written anew and therefore the effort of doing it might be a little … uhhh... overwhelming Kappa
EDIT: As soon as I wrote it down I realized it sounds like a dumb idea for what it’s worth... - I'll leave it anyway...
 
Why and how:
Imagine you're like m0nk, you want to donate some of your dosh. He once made a pretty amazing donation through gambling away his hard-earned cash in a "catch me if you can" style lottery with a predetermined randomized bet.
How about a special mode (doesn't matter if tournament, mm or free) where you take an amount of your cash and put it in the pot (There has to be a bare minimum to make it fun enough for everybody though...) and then have the following rule-set.
 
Rules:
1. Everybody that wants some of that sweet cash must all in every round until they lose or reach the minimum amount (50% of Donation amount)
2. As soon as the mode activates users that choose to participate are automatically bound to rule 1.
3. The number of rounds is decided by the donor with a minimum of 16 (testing required)
4. The minimum amount everybody starts with is not bound to level, but to the following formula (amount of donation/number of bettors)/2 - double of which needs to be paid to enter the mode, thus farther blowing up the pot
5. After 120 seconds (further testing needed) participants are all set, everybody that's not a participant bets with the usual cash they would have at that moment (Tourney, MM, Free)
6. The mode ends after the first to reach the amount donated. He will cash out with what he has + 50% of the remaining pot
7. Everyone after that gets a part of the remaining 50% of the remaining dosh until nothing is left
8. If no one can reach the minimum amount in the number of bets, then the payed amounts minus whatever the bettors have at that point go back to the donor (so that a high investment might pay off for the donor as well). Since 50% was the minimum amount to reach at least the amount the donor offered gets back to him + some extra.
9. Re-entry is possible by paying the minimum fee from your cash again - this will expand the total pot but not the minimum entry fee
 
The next rules should be discussed as there're multiple ways of expanding this:
- Maybe don't force the bettors to bet every round - there's always some connection issue or some shit...
- Of course, the donor should choose an amount that everybody is able to pay. So maybe this shouldn't even be on the fly but organized like the community tourney.
- Maybe let the donor choose: If no one can reach the 50% just donate the money via the percentage that every player has of the total pot?
 
Let me give you a simple example...
 
Start-Special-Mode:
Donation amount: 100k
10 Participants want to enter 
Minimum amount to participate: 10k (people need to see the minimum refreshed every few seconds ... or just organize the event in before  Kappa )
Total Pot is now 200k
Minimum amount to win the mode: 100k
Start amount: 5k
Re-entry fee is 10k
 
Maximum win-able amount: 100k (50% of total pot) + 50k (50% of donor money)
Second place: Whatever amount he has + 25k (25% of donor money)
...
 
Criticism welcome SoBayed
 
With regards
Martin aka sanso

  Dynamising matchmaking / the gamemode rotation
Posted by: Flandre5carlet - 03-05-2017, 08:16 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (8)

Hey there,

Earlier today I brought up in chat a bit of an idea I had about "scaling" the matchmaking size depending on the size of the previous tourney (bigger MM if huge bracket, normal MM for normal bracket, etc) and it kind of sprung into a bigger discussion about dynamising matchmaking and the gamemode rotation in general.

So I'm making this forum thread here so that people can centralise their ideas and discuss this in a better format than twitch chat Kappa

Personally I had that idea because I thought that we're "too often" in tournament mode due to the bigger brackets. It feels like half the time I tab in to SC to make a few bets it's like "welp it's tourney guess I'll bet $920 then."
On the other hand, Matchmaking is a bit dead usually especially during EU daytimes so it could use some way to make it more interesting to stick around...

Anyway, vote/discuss.
Also bear in mind that none of this is official, is only my personal opinion and Erxos can just be like "wat Kappa" and not do anything Wowee
