The Lottery + Stock System

the lottery system - +1
could be a cool fun weekly event idea, treating a lucky player in doing so to the cash pool
only one ticket should be purchasable though, so that it's more on the luck side.

For those who use "This is a SchoolRP" as an argument, I just want to point out that GangRP exists, and the players still tolerate it, even tho in my opinion it is literally the Opposite OF SCHOOLRP.

Sorry, but I'm not sure what you trying to say here
as two people who don't partake in minecraft gang roleplay, i dont see why we can't say 'this is srp'..

i too don't understand why criminal activity is such a big deal within the server either; i guess some people would just like to roleplay out their gorey imaginations of decapitating a police officer after engaging in a 30 minute ooc argument.

the difference between gangrp and in game stocks is; you can partake in stock trading irl, but obviously not the latter? why waste all your time, investing in stocks ICly, when you can simply do this OOCly, AND make your time worthwhile in doing that?! ofcourse you'd have much less limitations with this ingame, and it could teach players a lot of things.
but looping back to my original argument.. THIS IS SCHOOL ROLEPLAY!! we don't need these 18 year olds getting any more richer, increasing all of the minecraft pixel money they just to flex their duplicated vehicles and uncomprehendable balance like they are lil tay.

If it only has that, then you wouldnt see the peaks and lows of the stock, making it hard to manage when to buy or sell
Hypixel skyblock has a plugin where basicly every item in the game is a stock, and you can see the up and downs. I think yall should take inspiration from that.

I mean... if you put it this way, why would you invest your time in School roleplaying when you can simply do this OOCly? Why do you develop a blocky Minecraft character when you can develop other things OOCLY? It is just not a solid enough reason.
Besides, I think you failed to understand what am I trying to get here. My point is that if SchoolRP can tolerate a bunch of school students running around the city, committing First Degree Murder, Possession of Major Illegal Weaponry, and Illegal Services. I don't really see how the Lottery or Stock system is gonna change the fact that this is a "School Roleplaying" server. Also, adding on to what you were saying about "we don't need these 18 year olds getting any more richer", both of them require an insane amount of luck, I mean... sure, you can gain a great fortune overnight, but the majority of the time the odds would be against you. Some might lose as little as 5k and some might lose every single penny they have in their bank account.

roleplay is completely different to reality, whereas stocks ingame and oocly will be the same, my point was; why not just engage in the stock market in real life, if you want it so bad.

as i said before, people use roleplay as escapism, doing things they can't do oocly. such as 'First Degree Murder, Possession of Major Illegal Weaponry, and Illegal Services.' as you stated.

stocks do definitely not require luck. people specialise in said subject, there are many techniques and skills required for proper stock trading, hence why some people make a living off of just doing so.

my main point is that school roleplay is already straying far away from it's name, there's no need to add more to the cause of this.

Hold on, let me get this straight, so are you claiming that since "People use roleplay as escapism" that means we shouldn't do "these things ICLY" just because can be done OOCLY? Sorry, but I'm not sure where are you trying to lead with this.

Also, You speak as if engaging in a real-life stock market is such a simple thing... I mean... would "I don't want to risk losing my Real-world currency on the stock market" be a good enough reason?

Also, about the stock system being not luck based: You can't really just copy and paste the entire stock market from real-word into a Minecraft server, that's why I suggested something like the "Duxcoin"(Unless you don't know what that is) which is pretty luck-based if you ask me

I am chill, I just don't agree with this statement personally. To put it this way, if GangRP and CriminalRP can be Tolerated, I don't see why adding a little economy Mini-game(luck based) would hurt the fact that this is a "School roleplay" first server....

i think you misunderstand, somehow? i said that people use the server to do things they cannot in real life; committing crimes. how does that correlate to anything you said..

secondly, bringing stocks in game may influence players to fall into the rabbit hole of engaging in them oocly - if it's what they're experiencing day to day in game, the reward they may be attaining could push them in the direction of real world stocks. this would just mean not only you, but a bunch of other players 'risk losing my Real-world currency on the stock market'. stocks have an age requirement for a reason, why would you implement them into a game with a younger audience.

for your third point, i don't even know how to respond to this. ofcourse you cannot 'copy and paste the entire stock market from real-word into a Minecraft server', but for the few stocks that would hypothetically be added, certain stocks would be influenced and driven more than others, just like how there are massive influxes and decreases in meme stocks and such. many methods could be applied to this hypothetical minecraft stock market, heavily driving away from the fact that it is 'luck based'.. it'll simply be the more time a player spends, ****ysing the increases and decreases in a stock, the more profit said player will make.

that stocks arent needs and it's useless?????? pretty straight forward.
Welp! Should have told me that at the start, but I get it. I can't argue with that honestly XD. We all have different opinions at the end of the day.

I mean killing, kidnapping, and physical assault is illegal for a reason, why would you implement them into a game with a younger audience?

don't ask me, as i said, i don't take favour with gangrp being on the server either. as far as i know, gangrp has been on the server since the making of it, complete removal of such would be quite hard.
