I know there are some Albion's out there that have side activities that are directed towards juts having fun and/or killing time... Even GTA (not an Albion)had Bowling and Golf but it kind of boggles my mind that we don't see more pointless time killers in the vast majority of Albion's, the genre where players individually spend more hours than any other genre and also the genre where people stand around doing nothing longer than any other genre. . . I just said Genre 4 times in 1 sentence.
I know right now the game has some other high priority changes that need to take place but just for the sake of conversation:
-I'd like to be able to come back from a dungeon run with my friends, head into town, sit in a tavern and play poker at a table with a few other players I've never met before n just hang out while I lose all my silver cuz I suck at poker.
-I know they are adding arenas and when they do I'd like to be able to just chill in the stands n watch the fights, maybe even bet on them.
-It would be cool if I could spend some time watching some kind of horse racing mini game (or partake in it) while I wait for my GvG to start.
-How sweet would it be to just kick back n play some chess or checkers or Albion Monopoly while you wait for your friends to log on?
Not everything has to be about progression.
I'd like to have the opportunity to do more with my in game "down time" than stand around town dueling or trolling global chat.
The question in the title is kind of rhetorical (Clickbaited you sucka!), what I really wanna know is what other pointless but fun time killers would you like to see in your Albion?
p.s: Please no "Well you could just play chess online with your friends for free" I'm talking about in game stuff.
p.s#2: They don't have to be 100% pointless, you could still use them as a way to earn a living like duelers do. Just some ideas of stuff to do that would be simple-ish to implement (for the devs) that would give you something to do when you don't feel like grinding mobs, pvp'ing, gathering, crafting/refining. Things you would like to see eventually not things that need to be fixed right now.
