Gamescom 2017 Forum Bets



  • Kyle said that they will most likely not do a betting special for Gamescom and thought maybe we could do the E3 2017 bets for Gamescom.
    Hopefully @Tragosaurus could make a spreadsheet again for us.

    " Like we did with the Switch Event, let's all throw out our guesses for each of the bets in the Easy Allies E3 2017 Bets Showdown video and declare our own winner at the end of the event. I'll keep track of everyone's bets in a Google Sheet and share it when I'm not at work.
    For the Opening Showdown and Double Down on Don the points will be awarded to whoever is closest. Multiple people can receive the points in the case of a tie.
    I changed the point values for the Opening Showdown bets (answers are numbers) since we will have more people and only one or a couple people will be getting them, just to give them more value. I am open to suggestions on what the point values should be.
    Happy betting!" Quoting @Tragosaurus

    I will remove anything Sony or Nintendo focus but leave the third party stuff since it could appear in the Microsoft conference. Also Sunday Microsoft and EA Monday.

    Opening Showdown (each worth 3 points)
    How many letters will be in the first and last name of the final presenter with the most letters in their first and last name?

    Will Wolverine reveal himself?

    Will we see a new playable character in a Evil Within sequel?
    Will microtransactions be shown?

    During the EA press conference when Madden NFL is shown, what is the value of X^Y?
    Where:

    The Rojo Caliente Gut Check Challenge (each worth 1 point)
    Will Microsoft present a VR demonstration on stage?
    Will Dante make a joke?
    Will there be a dragon in the Xbox press conference?
    Will there be an apparent love interest within the presentation for the new Wolfenstein?

    Oh, so this is kinda the E3 best, but tweaked for gamescon? Think we should add 1 "made up crazy bet" per user, just for the fun of it. I mean something that seem outlandish crazy but would be a huge thing if it actually happened



  • Please explain more, I don't understand anything about the opening post.

    • What are the press conferences being held at Gamescom?
    • Why remove Sony and Nintendo? Do they not have anything there?
    • And why have the exact same bets from E3 in the first place here?

    I think a betting thread could be great for an event like this, but at this point that whole thing looks just super confusing, sorry.



  • @Sentinel-Beach https://forums.easyallies.com/topic/4256/e3-2017-forums-bets
    Only EA and Xbox are doing conferences so no point in making those bets. EZA is not doing a special so only place to get bets is to use the old ones

    @Lotias Good Idea. I'm game if everyone else is.



  • @ib0show Gotcha. Wasn't aware that Sony's skipping it conference-wise, or that MS and EA do have such occasions.



  • Sony is holding back some of their stuff for TGS and rest for PSX, so there's no point holding a press conference at Gamescom.

    That said, I'm down for some new bets for this occasion. Stuff that is more custom tailored for this event.



  • Here's hoping we'll get a Bannerlord release date.



    • Xbox One X pre-order open
    • Recore definitive edition
    • Crackdown 3 multiplayer, it somewhat delivers, plus open beta
    • State of Decay 2 gameplay
    • more Forza 7 gameplay


  • I'm always down for some conference bets. I'm wondering how many of those bets from E3 would still apply though? I'm not up to date with what we could possibly expect from Gamescom, but I guess that is the point of these ridiculous bets.

    • We could probably cross of the Imagine Dragons bet.
    • Evil Within and Wolfenstein are Bethesda games so they wouldn't be at a conference correct?
    • We could probably also cross out the Spyro and the licker bets.

    I think it would be cool if we all came up with our own outlandish final bet like @Lotias suggested.
    In addition, we have time until we would need to lock in the bets so we should come up with some new bets to tack on. Here are a few I came up with with my very limited to zero knowledge on what could happen or what has already. We should add a couple more if possible to make it more interesting. They should be fairly easy to find the results for since we won't be able to piggyback off of Easy Allies' hard work.

    • Will we see Crackdown mutliplayer?
    • Will we see anything Star Wars besides Battlefront 2?


  • @Tragosaurus Microsoft is on Sunday so Imagine Dragons, also Kyle made some bets easy for easy points so if you think it's a no then it's an easy point. We can add some extra questions. How are these?
    Will the Crackdown 3 presentation have more than 10 confirmed kills?
    Will EA mention Mass Effect?
    Will they have a car on stage for the Forza Presentation?

    What should we do if they aren't press conferences but developer interviews etc.

    @jipostus Sony announced a showcase for Paris Games Week on the 30th October



  • @tokeeffe9
    They also have their pre TGS show and a Asian PSX, alongside the one for Paris Games week, and PSX in December.



  • @ib0show Ok cool, then the Imagine Dragons bet can stand. I like your 3 additional bets as well. If we go with the ones not crossed out in your original post and our additional bets we have 27, which is a solid number. We could add 3 more to make it an even 30, and then we all could make our outlandish final bets.


  • Global Moderator

  • @ib0show I really like your bets. I almost kept them all the same except for presenter name length and double down on Don.



  • I predict we will see exactly one Rathalos plate in the Monster Hunter: World show floor demo footage.



  • I'll update the Google Sheet as people place their bets and I get around to it.

    Also I can't really think of a good Final Bet and it goes against one of my other bets but I'm going with...
    Microsoft will announce a brand new Brute Force game which will be a launch game for the X.
