How would feel about poker with Corpus

Huh. A warfame kinda like Limbo's stature but with cards as ability weapons? Maybe abilities like this:

1: Throw a card from up his sleeve that flies around the room and applies slash damage to all in range within a corridor-shaped arc of fire.

2. Cast a massive card, ace of spades, on the floor as a static trap of a nominal duration; enemies that stand in it turn black and flail helplessly into the floor, never to be seen again, while Warframe gains energy per kill.

3. Royal Flush; if you apply the same type of damage to 5 enemies within 15 seconds, the damage proc is then broadcast to all in the room. (This would be fun with Radiation damage!)

4. Jackpot; a kill-counter at the top of the screen appears next to a random generated number and when you kill that many enemies manually, the whole room gets killed while dropping extra loot and the team gets buffed with armour and damage. If you fail, the team gets debuffed temporarily and you lose all your energy and shields (and get yelled at by your team).

To get this Warframe, the quest involves a sit-down with Neff and a Fortuna buddy, mafia style, perhaps?

Edit to add: he also has a passive ability of 50% chance he turns into smoke and teleports him to a random location on the map if his health dips below 10%. This could be a good or bad thing.

Added passive ability.

I've no clue how to play poker aside from...knowing that you need to bluff or something?  I'm better at playing Blackjack though , that's easier and winnable. 

If I had to guess what the Corpus would do is pit a lot in but then...why play with cards when we can just play with bullets I.E.  Index?

Poker, dominos, bowling, checkers or chess. Many many many multiplayer mini games have been suggested over the years. What did we get? Frame fighter. Lmao. Its cool but no. 

The point of these games would be to engage with friends and randos in groups, casually, in our dojos which as of now are mostly useless outside of loitering, research items, and vanity based creative itch scratching aka ikea frame. 

 

I would LOVE for minigames like this. Let us wager ducats or credits. Or npc standing. 

And for those who dont get it;

The modern popular way of playing poker is holdem. Its so popular i think not only for fun but because you have so much control over what and how much you risk. 

Gameplay is simple. Every player gets 2 cards. Then, over the course of the hand, five more cards are put on the board. Yiu use your 2 plus any 3 of the five cards on the board to make your hand. Between each phase of cards being dealt is a betting phase. 

In each hand, two players are forced to bet before any play happens. These are called blinds, as they're blind bets. One player bets a full bet. One player bets a half bet. The betting (or the hand, if you will) begins with the player who is "after" the forced full blind bet. This means the full blind bets last. The purpose of the rotating blind bet is to ensure that chips are changing hands, so that players cant just sit there indefinitely without betting, waiting till they have a perfect hand. The amount of the blinds also increases as the game progresses, for this same reason. You are forced, once every full rotation, to play at least 1.5 of the minimum bet. 

Bluffing isnt required and only beneficial based on what you have, what you think others have, and what youre willing to risk. 

In summary a hand looks like this. 

Two players are forced to make a bet. Cards are dealt. Everyone else bets, passes, or folds. Three cards hit the board. Players bet pass or fold. 1 card hits the board. Players bet pass or fold. One more card hits the board. Players bet pass or fold. Those still in reveal their hands. Winners taken their chips. The forced bet moves around the table by one player and you rinse repeat. Meanwhile, every few rotations the min bet doubles.

more of a blackjack guy myself. a simpler game, but just as thrilling. if you don't hate the number 17, you will after a few rounds of blackjack!

but I'd be ok with some kind of Casino where you can gamble credits against the Corpus. I know we have the Index, but that's betting on Combat, and as Tenno, the odds are always rigged in our favour on that front. doubt this will ever be a thing we'll actually see, but as a lover of Red Dead's card games, it would be great to see tables full of Mesas betting with each other.

Well, Index involves using violence against the Corpus instead of numbers and such, so I guess "poker" would be something similar with different mechanics right? No actual cards. Just raw violence with different rules? If so, I'm up for that!

After we get Komi/Go considering the engine is already in the game, I'd love to size up other players to kill some time in relay or at the clanhall over some black and white stones.

Pokernight with Anyo sounds kinda cute, but only if we had similar fluffy cast members to play against. Darvo could be fun, and I'd be curious to have a grineer representative but we have a tendency to permanently eliminate all of them except Hek, and he doesn't strike me as a striking poker player. (I'm rather fatigued by his, existance as is.) Maybe bring in one of the other cephalons? Kinda like how we have Sark in the index, another Cephalon cap Cephalon could host or be a player.

I propose Komi/Go be used to hack consoles. Pick the right move, console is hacked. Pick the wrong move, console hack fails and alarms go off and Eximus squads from a random faction spawn, and we hear Ballas insult us with clever words.

Poker in general has two steps:

  1. you buy your hand of cards ("ante up")
  2. you gamble that your hand of cards is better than everyone else's ("raise")

If you raise, everyone else has a chance to match your gamble ("call") or surrender their ante ("fold").

Bluffing is nothing more than raising in the hopes that everyone else will fold

There's different versions of poker of course, most famously "five card draw" and "Texas hold 'em", but they still follow the two step formula. In fact the main difference is how many times step 2 happens per round
