After seeing that LMS has pretty much died, and no one really gives a shit about it anymore and after reading this
Quote from: Arran
Just another event like LMS that ends with 2 players out of 700 playing it, utter fucking waste of time.
I've came up with this lil suggestion to buff up it's value and make it a more enjoyable event.

Suggestion explained in one paragraph: Basically, LMS will happen hourly and the winner will get more money than the initial reward.


Additional details that are necessary for the suggestion: After each LMS round, a timer set to an hour will start up and when it reaches zero another LMS round will start. People can check for this timer using the /lms command and it will hint how much time until the next round.
Also, the current reward system is 11k multiplied by the number of players taking part in the event, let's make it 20k per player.


This suggestion is worth the time developing because: It will make LMS a more interesting event because it's not repetitive (not boring) and it will pay better to have a more enjoyable experience (an event that rewards your efforts = a fun event).

The reason it ends with "2 players out of 700 playing it" is not because it's an "utter fucking waste of time", it's because that the event runs like every 5 minutes which means it's happening so often that it gets boring. I agree that it should happen hourly and perhaps like 15, 10 and 5 minutes before the event starts, a notice would appear reminding players that the event is going to start soon.

About the reward, it could be slightly increased but not too much because it will be overpaid then. I don't know why it was made to run every 5-10 minutes in the first place. Agreeing with your suggestion about making it run hourly.
