If you expect anything beyond empiricism, then I'm afraid you'll be continually and repeteadly disappointed by my posts
But I will back up my preposterous estimation with data. Defeating M4rv1n in bet mode, an easy enough task, with a perfect 3-0, takes sligthly less than 25 seconds, plus another 5 for choosing to replay, and nets you 150 credz (not quite sure why it yields 150, since the bet description says 105, so perhaps this is something that might be nerfed in a patch). Combined with mission pay-offs, coins picked up from the table and X2 bonuses, I just made slightly more than 7000 in 15 minutes (clocked and measured), not always scoring a perfect, but without any lost games.
The same approach on the second floor, once you've the skill to faultlessly defeat Ayato, will net you 220 per perfect victory (again, not possible to achieve in every game, but often enough), which together with missions, coin pickups and X2 bonuses gets you closer to 10000 per 10 minutes.
I haven't been to the third floor yet, but if the credz reward increase in bet mode is reasonably linear, 10000 per ten minutes is achievable on a semi-regular basis. Which is enough to warrant the "Which you can also obtain by playing the game for ten minutes to half an hour" estimation. I'm close enough to the low end of that number on the second floor.
In half an hour, a better woman or man than me could even perhaps have their pick of paddles, plural, reminding us that it is never wise to mistestimate a misestimator.
Yep. I never claimed anything to the opposite effect in my post (nor did you mention the larger
wider paddle in your first post), nor did I try to rely on my considerable wit and guile to subliminally insert the message of the easily achievable 15000 credz paddle into the collective consciousness of the TA community
Since we're on the subject of expectations, straw man techniques is not quite what I expected from someone of your polemic mettle
But I console myself with the suspicion that this was actually not your intention, and temper my disappointment with a reminder to myself of the tenuous nature of the sender-receptor relationship, particular in gaming forums. I.E., I might be completely wrong in my assumptions regarding your intentions
Heh, I can tell you've been saving that for the opportune moment, savouring every second of expectation of the day when it might apply
It must feel delightful to use one of the most classical veiled argumentum ad hominem in an internet forum discussion. Space helmet off to you, for that was a splendid example of how to disarm someone of an opposing view (yes, really, no irony or sarcasm, not even when I say "no irony or sarcasm")
