It was definitely after the ATP game. I remember the thread in which Mark asked for ideas for a new game! So we got the idea from ATP but a lot of people put a lot of effort into developing it, into what it is now! Not me! I dont even play!
Yes... we got the idea of having a game... having a game that involves prediction, that is it, nothing else.
You can't put a patent on all prediction games [obviously] but you can possibly patent RTR because it involves inventing a game format with rules.
I think it's got heated in here because of the work involved in RTR making it a sensitive subject
