Ante Based PvP

OK, so I don't really play PvP but It would be more appealing if there was an ante option where we could win something more than bragging rights.

It could function similar to the trade window where both players have to agree on the ante, however it closes for the match and automagically drops the loot in the winners inventory.

What think you. It would also be fun for watching on streams.
The trade window thing is where both parties agree on the wager is a fantastic idea. This is an excellent suggestion.

I agree with [your QQ,] problem is, everything else I played makes me come back here. PoE fucks me better.

Thanks, hopefully we can get GGG to notice and like.

I should point out to all that I do not mean for this to be mandatory, if the players don't want to play for ante they don't have to.

That would just be a "trade screen" where both players confirm on nothing.

RMT on pvp incoming in 3...2...
Intellect is not a cure. Justice is dead. Fear, recrimination, innocence, sympathy, guilt, waste, failure, grief, were things, emotions, that no one really felt anymore. Reflection is useless, the world is senseless. Evil is its only permanence.

+1 to this idea. Really clever, OP!
Face it, all of your suggestions are worse than this idea:

I actually envision this more along the lines of the allocation listing for parties. One for the way it is now and another for the ante based system. If you didn;t want to play ante then you would select it when you enter PvP and you would be in a different pool and you wouldn't be prompted for an ante. If you did select the ante you would.

I think it would be better if the screen popped up regardless, and players could just confirm on nothing. That way you could try to convince uninterested players into putting up some ante by offering some yourself.

Okay, I see where you are going with the idea. Doing it your way would make the PvP selection list cleaner (by not adding more selections) and still provide for the ante option. It would just have to be made clear that they have the option for confirming on nothing. Otherwise it would appear mandatory.

I don't play PvP but for some loot I would be much more interested, However not everybody would feel that way and I don't want it to be inclusive and not leave others out.
