As part of the patch on 2018-08-17 homins can use bright new Gubani Fortune Wheel. The goal of the change was to make usage more comfortable, spending tokens less painful and bring more fun for all gamblers. Also, the variety of rewards was extended. And even when you loose, you might be suprised!

The wheel is located in each capital as well as in Marauder camp. You are now able to use new types of tokens, increase your chances by using more tokens at same time and also choose how many times you wish to spin the wheel. However, when you try the new wheel for the very first time, you might be confused.



How to play
If you wish to try some gambling, first thing you have to do is to choose the type of tokens you will use (0) by clicking on the token icon. You can also see how many tokens of the selected type are left in your pocket (1).

Next you can choose how many tokens you wish to play at once. You can set from one (as original wheel did) up to five tokens, choosing from a drop-down selection next to the chosen token icon (2). The more tokens you use, better chance of winning you have.

Additionally, you can set number of spins of the wheel by clicking on the numbers around the wheel. From one spin up to ten (3). It works as multiplicator of tokens. For example, when you play 3 tokens with 5 spins, it will actually use 15 tokens in 5 attempts by 3 pieces.

When your preferred options are set, you can try your luck and click the button in the center of the wheel (4). By clicking the button, it will insert the selected tokens and the game will start. The chance of winning depends on how many tokens you use at the same time (2) and you can see the percent chances above the button (5).

In case you win, your reward will appear in a loot window just as it was with the old version. In case you are really lucky, you are offered to choose your reward. You may take the items you won or some better quality tokens and try to win even more and better rewards using them later.

When you think it was enough of risk for now, you can close the wheel clicking the closing button (6) and come back later to try your luck again.


Tokens
Along with the new wheel, homins are now able to get new types of tokens of five classes: basic, fine, choice, excellent and supreme. Better tokens give you chances to win better rewards, but are also harder to get. All new tokens are stored in your SPECIAL bag so they now take no space in your inventories.

Your old tokens will not work with the new wheel, but you can ask Fortunate Gubani attendant to change your old ones for new basic tokens, one for one or buy new. It is possible to buy basic and fine tokens only. The only other way to get new tokens is, participating in various events or win some by gambling with the wheel.

Will we see any additional instruction here perhaps addressing:

a) Sometimes the wheel just stops working.

b) Instructions on what BYMGO is all about ... Pay 2 Win

c) Understanding that user selection of what categories of rewards are in play is not feasible, has any thought been given to the fact that many rewards are not usable ... for example cats for subbed players, low level "Wundahmat"....The latter wouldn't be so bad if tradeable.

d) What reward items are going to be "tradeable" ?

e) The OP Flowers provide something that few players use. I love the red and blue ones, but I'm in a small minority. Giving away flowers rarely brings a response.

While I certainly do not want to diminish the importance of OPs, I think the **rare** reward of an OP mat would add some excitement without diminishing the value of an OP for the player base that is excluded from opportunity to obtain same.

f) The issue of dupes.... Lost about a dozen rewards because I already had a BYMGO game of that number. Is there a way to avoid getting a 2nd rucksack for apartment, duplicate wigs, etc.

Regarding, item part collection, not really in a position yet to form a solid view on this stuff but .... impressions so far after 5 stacks of Basic Tokens, winning 282 choice token with Pay2Win and whatever collected from 2 mini bosses:

- It would seem apartment item collection rewards are a bit high ... while on that topic, kinda confused about the rotating / glowing rucksack... reminded me of Doom armor. 55/30 parts so far

- Wigs reward rate seems low ... (17/150), a third of those coming from the choice tokens.

- Plushie rate seems OK.... (14/150), again a third of those coming from the choice tokens

- Gubani Mount rate seems low ... (5/300) Gubani Mount and all those came from Basic Tokens ... had 6 but one disappeared after wheel crash. At 1 part per stack, the idea of requiring 300 stacks seems daunting.


BTW, had to type this message twice ... 1st time hit "submit" button said reload detected. Seems I get this whenever i don't complete a post quickly

Gewinne
Die Benutzung einer höherstufigen Klasse Jetons erhöht nicht nur die Grundchance zu gewinnen, sondern auch die Qualität der möglichen Gewinne. Ein Rechtsklick auf einen Jeton in Deiner SPEZIAL-Tasche zeigt Dir alle Sorten möglicher Gewinne sowie Deine Chancen sie zu erhalten.


Pay2Win
Während des Spiels am Gubaniglücksrad ist es auch möglich sogenannte Pay2Win Jetons zu erhalten. Diese führen zu den Gubani-Minispielen. Hier sind die Regeln einfach: decke eins von 25 Feldern (0) auf und finde dann das freigelegte Symbol in der Tabelle (1) um zu sehen was Du gewonnen hast! Der benutzte Jeton kann danach weggeworfen (2) werden.




BYMGO
BYMGO ist ein weiteres Minispiel am Gubaniglücksrad. Dieses ist eine Variation des altbekannten Bingo mit 75 Kugeln. Unter anderem kann man hier auch nummerierte Jetons gewinnen, die zum Markieren von Zahlen auf dem Bymgo-Raster gut sind.

Ein Rechtsklick auf einen nummerierten Jeton in Deiner SPEZIAL-Tasche stellt ein BYMGO-Ticket her und öffnet es. Dort siehst Du ein Raster mit zufälligen Zahlen (0). Nun kannst Du alle nummerierten Jetons spielen, die Nummern entsprechen, die auch in Deinem Raster vorkommen. Ziel ist es, alle drei Reihen abzuschliessen und damit die laufende Runde zu beenden. Dein BYMGO-Ticket wird in Deiner SPEZIAL-Tasche abgespeichert.

Wenn ein Spieler es schafft sein/ihr BYMGO-Ticket abzuschliessen endet die laufenden Runde. Der/die Gewinner/in kann dann ein neues Raster starten (1). Alle anderen Spieler haben die Möglichkeit die vorherige Runde noch fertig zu spielen (um vorzügliche Jetons zur Belohnung zu erhalten) oder mit in die neue Runde einzusteigen. Ein Einstieg in die neue Runde führt zum Verlust der vorherigen BYMGO-Karte, jedoch können ungenutzte nummerierte Jetons aus der SPEZIAL-Tasche weiterhin genutzt werden.

Mögliche Gewinne für das Raster werden darüber angezeigt (2). Für jede vollendete Reihe (d.h. alle Nummern in einer Linie sind markiert) gewinnt man einige vorzügliche Jetons. Ist man in der laufenden Runde der/die Erste beim Vollenden der Reihe,so erhält man zusätzlich exzellente Jetons. Ob dieser Gewinn noch zur Verfügung steht erkennt man daran ob das Belohnungssymbol ausgegraut ist (3).

I'm actually impressed with the implementation of this new wheel.

But... I'd rather see the gambling and mini-games vanish from the game. There may be more interesting avenues for distributing rare goodies. :)

Agreed. While technically impressive, it's frustrating enough that interest fades quickly as the novelty wears off... which, for me, was about two minutes.

Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.
