I am willing to bet that I can amass the largest corporation of active players by New Years. Surpassing the SSS and everyone else.
Anyone willing to bet against me? 1

It's simple. You bet 50 QPs as well and if SPQNR DOES have the most players by the New Years you pay me 50 QPs. If we don't then I pay you 50 QPs.

While I am not going to take you up on this I do gotta ask for those that do's sake, are you going to book people that go inactive?  If not people could join, quit and your numbers would never go down.  Also people could potentially create alt's just for the purpose to have them join the corp to add in the number. Not saying you would do that. Just saying it could happen.

But how can we be sure those players are active?  Not everyone has them all on their friends this. We have only your word on some of them. lol. Sorry I'm just giving you a hard time.  I can be a pain in the butt sometimes.  I think perhaps I am too bored at the moment.

Haha if you guys don't trust my word you can feel free to send someone over to the New Roman Senate to see what it's like here and keep track of our members' activity ;)

I trust your work to an extent. I just tend to see all possibilities of what can happen.  When it comes to people there is few I fully trust. I don't even full trust my own mother. lol. Also anyone who takes you up on this bet could end up doing the same very things I suggested there.  This wasn't ment to be just aimed at you. Just people in general. lol

I am going to pass on this wager.

Even odds on this doesn't really interest me.

If you would say (for instance) 10-1 (I bet 5 to your 50), I might think about it, but with even odds...

10/1 Emperor? The Consul is probably the greatest recruiter in the galaxy, but that's giving him TOO much credit 16

and why would I waste money on an even bet.

put your money where your mouth is.

give me some odds that might make me interested in something that is all but guaranteed.

@Raptor - what odds are you giving?

Haha, I don't think these guys gamble a lot, sargas.

What sargas is saying is that it's a longshot for SPQNR to NOT have the most active members by that time. He's not betting even money on an inside straight draw!  12
