    Okay, so, I've noticed that when people vote, most of the time the voting system will choose the chests with the least amount of votes. I just think that this should be fixed because usually voting is decided by the most amount of votes wins. But that doesn't work in this case. Because mainly it could be either one, and most times, it picks the chest or day/night/sunset with the least amount of votes. I was playing Skywars today, and almost every time, the vote for Overpowered chests won, when there were more votes for Normal than OP. This I find quite unfair. This is just my opinion but I do feel as though this should be fixed, because I'm not the only one who has noticed this. Me along with some of my other friends have seen this happen many times and I do think that there should at least be a discussion about this

    Votes work like in the lottery.
    If 3 people voted for basic and 2 people voted for OP, it is more likely that Basic will get chosen but that doesn't mean Op couldn't get chosen. The more votes for a chest type the more the chances are that it will get chosen. 1:1 = 50% ; 2:1 = 75% ; 1:0 = 100% and so on.

    I understand that, but what I'm saying is that it should be highest votes win, it just seems more fair that way. If more people want Normal chests than basic, and Normal chest has more votes, then don't you think it would be more fair to please the people who voted the most for Normal?

    Yeah but if you have a load of people who always vote OP and you want to play basic and you are a donor,then there should be a chance that you get to play basic.

    Hehe. I feel special xD. Anyways, I agree with peat on this. Even though it is designed to be like a lottery, if the majority wants overpowered chests (for example), then more people would be pleased with the outcome. But, I can see what @EdwardLapLaz is saying. Maybe if there is one vote for OP, it is randomly selected between normal and OP. So in the scenario of one vote, normal is still an option.

    I agree with this, it's kinda annoying to see some random diamond like, steal your vote when you have like 5 votes OP and 1 votes Basic ;-;

    But it is far more likely that,on a 5:1 ratio, that the 5 will win.Its better for the donors if they can vote normal when 4 others have voted OP and still have a chance (though it is much smaller) for them to get what they want.Otherwise there will be no point voting if 3+ others have said something different to what you want.

    I've asked for it to be changed quite a while ago but Rubik seems to like the system like it is.

    I personally like the system how it is. Makes the voting more fair, because if there were a team of players playing together, and all voting the same option, it would automatically be their decision. I think with the lottery way, everyone gets a fair chance at getting the options they voted for.
