Who wants to be #1? (in General)

5583 days old {Gaza} September 14 2005 1:39 AM EDT

just out of interest; why would anyone want to be in Ranger's (or probably most of the top 10's) shoes. I mean; currently a new player plays for 3 days and gets double Ranger's rewards... it kind of makes me feel glad I'm not number 1!

Well, I'm enough of a casual player that I would hate the responsibility I would have if I were number 1. You wouldn't be allowed to take time off, miss BA, or even slow down and take the time to enjoy the game. As is, I try to keep up and advance to have a strong character I can be proud of, but it's nowhere near the same.

I'm happy where I am on here, although being a bit higher would be nice too of course. But I like being able to goof off and leave for several days without worrying about being overtaken.

And rewards aren't everything. If you play CB for the rewards, meaning the $100 and 20xp per minion stuff, you need to find a new reason to play. Play it because you enjoy it, the strategy, the friends, etc.

um, I prefer to be number 1 than being number 50 or 70 or whatever number I am right now. Being number 1, no matter what, the NUB players couldn't reach you, unless you stop playing. Being number 50 or 70, in 1 month you will get beaten/farmed by the newbies, no matter how hard you play.

Well I sort of forced myself into a bet so I will be #1.

Would being #1, in this case, necessitate equipping a ToA?

I'd much rather be #2 and have many fierce battles with #1 keeping the whole community in suspense about who will come out on top.

Then eventually i'd say #1 is unbeatable, change my characters name, become a forger and then whine about how unbalanced the game is.

I prefer to shoot for the realistic goals ;)

Back when I first acquired El Cid in CB1 and was #1, I found it to be very anti-climactic. All of the sudden there was nobody bigger than me. The only character I couldn't always kill in one fight was Spid, who was #2. It took a lot of the fun out of the game for me. There was no "I've got to make this tweak to beat this guy so I can climb up a notch", it was just win, win win...

Today I become number one!

i want to be #1. now that camping is gone it is my solo goal and 1 of the 2 reasons i'm still here

"Hi Megaman, sorry, you've been a member of CB2 since it's inception on January 1st, 2005. Since you weren't hardcore enough to reach at least the top ten then, through camping, bonus cash from referral links or any of the other ways to jump start your career, and since you're not eligible for the NUB, as you really should have know better, especially about the CoBF change, you are now ineligible for a top ten place. But we do encourage you to keep dreaming about it. Oh, if you're really insistent, you do have one option left. Purchase an existing top ten character. For CB2 if you're lucky, or USD if you're rich."

Okay, so #1 is too hard.
And #2 is "the first loser".
So, I choose #3. Yeah, I want to be #3. 'Cuz 3 is a magic number...

"Yes it is, it's the magic number!"

[T]Vestax September 14 2005 9:34 AM EDT

Man, I was just happy enough to farmed by the number player.

AdminShade September 14 2005 9:38 AM EDT

3 is a crowd :P

QBBarzooMonkey September 14 2005 9:47 AM EDT

3rd time's a charm

GL - # 1 isn't impossible for anyone. Glory's made huge strides into the top 10, as a non-NUB example.

TrueDevil [AAA] September 14 2005 2:15 PM EDT

Glory used some usd, and bought that character, which I believe already mentioned by GL (using usd, buy top 10 characters). It's not that hard at all to become number 1 or in top 10 without the NUB, you just have to use usd.

Relic September 14 2005 2:16 PM EDT

USD can only get you so far, you have to somewhat know what you are doing...:P

TrueDevil [AAA] September 14 2005 2:36 PM EDT

If I have 120 mil+ NW, I think I know what I am doing, and how to be in top 10. ;)

Anyhow, it's impossible to be number 1 without the help of NUB or usd. (I should say it's impossible to be in top 3 or 5 without the help of NUB or usd).

Special J September 14 2005 4:33 PM EDT

number 1 what?

Are we running for number one whiner?
If so; it is a 4 way tie.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 14 2005 5:24 PM EDT

Hehehehehe... I bet I top that list eh?
