Ok, there was a conversation happening after someone posted the following: (I am typing this off the screen shot, would link but it is on my phone and my internet here stinks royally, i’ve been trying to transfer it to my computer for a long time and it’s going no where)
PlayerA: attn gnomes get to level 30 for (name redacted) will be giving away [Green Mechanostrider] to the winner of the weakest link game today at 7 pm server you must be a level or 30 higher gnome with no mount to win gl and happy leveling
PlayerA: every round the lowest roll will be removed from game till three remain
PlayerA: then the last three contestants will race to win 5 high rolls the first to win 5 gets the mount
I responded with “soooo…gambling? which is against the tos?”
(The character I was on, Thelmaria, can not post with here as none of them on the server are showing up as an option.
that led to a ‘conversation’ about gambling and the tos, which I did correct to state advertising was the part against the tos. the others argued that since no money was involved, it wasn’t gambling, therefore, no issues.
I said I’d be happy to post here to find out one way or the other, so here I am.
Is what PlayerA was offering considered gambling in game?
It does involve competitive rolls for a prize. Thank you for any clarifications
