    Does this generosity mean you endorse the Jakku IS Tatooine side of things?

    Nice! I don't really know how this all works. But I put my credits in a couple months back. Who divies out the dough after all this is settled?

    I bet 1000 that Jakku is NOT Tatooine. I mean c'mon guys, we can have multiple deserts on Earth, what's stopping us from having multiple desert planets? Besides, Jakku might have half of the planet be a very huge oasis :p Also, if it is Tatooine, that means there's like only 3 planets in Battlefront :/

    @Wuher, transferred 1000 credits to you, but I'll probably get them back ;)

    Sorry from previous experience once you lose your bet, you lose!!!:( Refunds are only given if events like the ''this is madness'' thread don't gain any notice then you are refunded.

    Don't think he's talking about a refund. He's saying he's gonna get his money back and then some. :)

    In Aftermath, Tatooine and Jakku both show up in the book as distinctly different planets. Do we need anymore official confirmation that Jakku is not Tatooine?

    Nope. I'd deal with the finances, but I don't have that power.

    @Darth Lexor Kai, you're up!
    The power of hindsight is a very, very funny thing.

    Jakkooine Supporters (Lost Bet):
    Jakkooine Deniers (Won Bet):
    So if I'm doing my math right...
    • Total Pool Overall - 1350 + 3100 = 4450 Credits.
    • Share Per Winner - 4450 ÷ 5 = 890 Credits.
    I can't really tell where @Grand Master Galen Marek sat on the debate (I think he was in the pro-camp), but he put 500 Credits down. (Unless he was just reiterating what Cole was saying and didn't actually make a bet - again, I can't tell. Galen, if you're here, please clear this up - it effects the total significantly!)

    If Galen threw his chips in, then the results are a bit different...
    • Total Pool Overall - 1850 + 3100 = 4950 Credits.
    • Share Per Winner - 4950 ÷ 5 = 990 Credits.
    ...In the end, this means that Zloi and Godilla got the short end of the stick, while MD, G., and especially Darby walk off with a whole lot of moolah.

    There's got to be a way to use a percentile or "share" system to reward the bigger riskers, right?...but I suck at math... almost as bad as I suck at planet predicting.:(

    Just to show you that there's no hard feelings, I'm going to send you 500 Credits. I think you can at least use that as a money bath (as opposed to a swimming pool of money).

    I do think that your suggestion is a good one - but since I don't run the casino and @Darth Lexor Kai does, I think he should take a look at this to keep it in mind.

    I bet that it wasn't Tatooine, sorry for the confusion, if I lost out so be it.

    Alright, so that means...
    • Total Pool Overall - 1350 + 3600 = 4950 Credits.
    • Share Per Winner - 4950 ÷ 6 = 825 Credits.
    So you gained a net of 325 Credits for your trouble.
