Spycrabbing

Postby sambawarkiddo » Thu Aug 20, 2015 5:07 pm

So, as someone who only knows a spycrab as a Spy being a useless tool with his disguise kit out,
Would anyone care to enlighten me as to what spycrabbing actually IS?
I can tell running from one seems to be a serious offense, but as someone who doesn't frequent Trade/Fun, or the Unusual Server when it's active, I haven't the foggiest clue what this actually is, other than something to do with trading involving some form of Medium.

Please, do share!

Spycrabbing is a form of gambling, if you will. It's a little game that is bet on between the two players involved.

Two players as spies use their disguise kits and continuously taunt. Taunting with the disguise kit, there's a small chance (1/5 chance) of doing a crab animation instead of flicking a cigarette.

A majority of crabs follow the "first to crab three times loses" rule. So, doing the crab taunt three times before the other person will cause you to lose. Honestly, it's just luck if you win or lose.

The winning player gets all of the items wagered between the two.

That was intensely over the top for something as simple as a taunt-off. Doesn't quite seem fair, but hell, if you want even stakes kinda, I guess you'd do it. Either way, chairs on the clarification~

Irl I do wise bets over things I know and mostly win. In games, virtual items are worth far less to me than irl stuff. Yea im mad if I lose 150$ worth knife in a stupid af jackpot, but it doesnt really matter in the end game :>

Yup :> Was pissed af at first but that was mainly for that I missed the 600$ pot. The knife it self doesnt really make me mad, as I said, virtual items = no weight in my pockets
