Need to have a bitcoin based platform for games such as Starcraft, Dota, LoL, HoN, Hearthstone, CS, etc...It might not be as profitable as a dice or other casino site, but it might turn some heads.

I have been trying to find out what it would take to host something like this. I have been researching it for over a year now.

Take Dota for instance:

Each team / clan pays an entrance fee, and the winner takes the pot.

Or my other one was a first person shooter. (counterstrike or Black ops)

You register on a server, then load your wallet with X amount of Bitcoin. Then each time you die, you lose a little, and for each kill you gain a little.

I guarantee this would work, And if somebody shares my vision, send me a PM and lets chat about it.

Don't you think my above idea would work?

I can use this type of game.In which users have to survive the game for 120 seconds.If any users successfully survive the 120 seconds he will get double of his deposited btc.If he unable to survive he will loss his btc.

Here are the screen shot


That game is called zumba. and YES, bot exists for that.

Its not possible to make a"skill and fair game" over the Internet. Why? Because someone COULD and most probably WILL use his PC and any other thing you can imagine to gain an edge against you. Chess? I could run chessmaster on another machine next to me. Shoot the bubbles? I could code that. Counterstrike? Aimbots. You cant control it/limit it except if you are in the same room and spectators can ensure you that no one cheats.

Sad
That's making me worry.

Is there any way to stop bots?
Is there any other idea that will work for me?

Yes it would definitely work! Especially with Counter strike and Dota. those 2 games are so popular, I have no doubt the Bitcoin community would go for such an idea.

Think about it this way, you cant cheat on steam games, else you get a Ban for life. You cant cheat on dota. Is all about skill. These games have cheat preventatives in place already. Else they wouldn't be able to host tournaments where people can win prizes.

***EDIT: After googling the possibility that people still cheat on Steam games and Dota, I am having doubts about my earlier statement. I guess it could be possible, but I would like to believe that it doesn't happen.

Why do you consider rock-paper-scissors a skill game?
It is mainly luck based IMO, though if it is played face to face, you may be able to read your opponent's gesture and predict his movement.
Because if you play hundreds of games, a skilled player player can reliably hold an advantage over a less skilled player -- by reasoning what are thinking based on the move history. I have a friend who I played a couple thousand games with online, (iteratively) and he was able to consistently beat me ~35 to ~40% of the time.

But anyway, the same applies to lots of skill games that involve exploiting human weakness, and where a perfect bot will make no money.

Quote
When I think about skill games, I immediately think of games like chess and backgammon, which people have created extremely powerful bots...

Yeah, those games are really hard to gamble with -- even if it's not for bots, it's for the difference in peoples skills, people pretending to be worse than they are (losing to their own shill accounts if needbe), and winning high stake games etc.

If this were true then competitive gaming would not exist.
There's a number of games with prize pools exceeding $100k and a lot of them are helf over the internet. Aimbots are relatively easy to make but also to spot. In MOBA or RTS games there's not much a player can do to cheat, besides some obvious hacks like invulnerability or unlimited resources.

I've created a choose-your-own-adventure game that's largely skill-based and bot-proof. Project thread here. Looking for funding to hire writers and artists. May be too text-heavy for some but it'd really rock as an interactive comic book.

I couldn't agree more! I get that gambling sites have to make things work based on maths/odds/chances though if they want to make a profit or guarantee their losses. What I would like to see more of is Peer to Peer betting but that takes such a large number of people before it gains critical mass. I'd be quite happy to put up .1 BTC to compete against someone at a skill based game - if I won I would take .2 BTC minus a small game fee, if I lost I would walk away with nada.

Jumping in here. Check out https://www.betmoose.com - it's not exactly a casino/'game' per se, but it's P2P betting, skill based, and you CAN make bets about "anything" so we've seen some peer to peer rock paper scissors played in the past with quite large volumes (3BTC+ per game).
