I know this would partially distract GW players from doing what the game is about, actually "fighting" monsters, PvP arenas, and such, but it would be so entertaining for those who:
1. Are bored a lot
2. Have nothing to do
3. Want to do something other than PvPing or farming
4. Like MINI-GAMES!
Mini-games and extra-cirricular activities such as bowling, fishing, target practice, dancing floors, eating and driking, GvG match observing (with friends commenting on the strategies used, and having bets on who will win, officially of course), cards, tic-tac-toe, auctioneer, accessory stores, and games that can make unique uses of your skills.
For example: You can have a "tower defense" (Warcraft 3) mini-game where a random group of monsters spawn at the top of the custom map, and run through the maze to try and get to the bottom of the map. But you'll have a team of around 16 players strategically located to drestroy the running mob before they "exit."
Ok, I got a bit off track with the gold sinkage, but hey, they can be time sinks :happy14:
