simpler, easier and less grindy.
these games should be as simple as gambling over a slug race - or kagoutis for that matter.
we all know the card game didnt quite land - it was overly complicated and clunky- and too grindy .
zos should not give up on the idea of providing social acitivites for its players to relax and do in their down time. giving players a reason to hang out in taverns- other than getting virtually drunk- is a great way to keep players logged in and connected- which is the name of the MMO game after all.
i think the simpler the better, a darts game, a game of checkers , even games that could integrate combat like say football. imagine a football game of 3 on 3 where u need to use ur combat skills to hit the ball around a small field. heck just look at how the GTA franchise has done it with their mini games and activities- it truly brings a social space to life and gives people a reason to play the game , socialise , mingle and have fun - most important- its an in game social activity - and not discord etc.
