Gamescom 2017 Forum Bets



  • Yeah by the nature of these bets just being copied from E3 and not specific for Gamescom they weren't as juicy as other betting events. Anywho, I updated the Google sheet with our bets and what I think the outcomes were. If anyone has a dispute with the official answers let me know, I didn't spend a whole lot of time checking them, just as I watched the events checked off stuff and at the end went back and filled in what I thought for the rest. If there are no objections I can calculate the Gamescom bet intramural champion.

  • @Tragosaurus
    Will the Scorpio controller have any changes other than colour and insignia? Yes. Doesn't the controller say scorpio in the scorpio edition



  • @ib0show I thought about that too, but labeled it under those terms in a sense. In my mind the changes would have been a new button, for instance, or some motion thing. Something concrete or physical, in a way. But maybe Trago will elaborate.

    aaaand I completely forgot to add my list.. guess its too late now haha



  • Did someone guess Age 4?



  • We saw no Rathalos plates in the Gamescom footage. Great Jagras and Anjanath were the hunts playable on the show floor, Barroth was demoed for press, and Rathalos was in the open world of the floor demos but hard to kill without a quest.



  • @ib0show My thoughts were along with @Sentinel-Beach, it saying Scorpio falls under insignia. Not saying that absolutely the case but just my thoughts.

    Also sorry about being so unresponsive. Work blocked the forums so my time here has plummeted. Browsing around for a minute was the best while waiting for something to finish.



  • Well I finally remembered I never got around to this so the winners are...

    @Sentinel-Beach and @jipostus

    Don't worry, the next betting event will be a bigger fanfare and I'll actually post in a timely manner.



  • Wait... I won something? How did this happen o_O

    Also, Finnish Double win?
    Torilla tavataan :D



  • Uuh, V for Ville Victory! Torille! :D
