Where did my bought BA go? (in General)

Quark October 28 2005 12:21 PM EDT

I just bought 150 BA twice, and the system says I'm still out of BA. But the buy BA popup from the Get More BA link has reduced my total available by 300. What's up?

Quark October 28 2005 12:22 PM EDT

I'm on IE 6 under XP. Worked fine last night from home, but now behind the work proxy it didn't.

Dolphin October 28 2005 12:24 PM EDT

I have lost 200BA :-(

Quark October 28 2005 12:24 PM EDT

And FYI I'm getting my earned BA refreshing but that 300 BA disappeared. I can't confirm if it reduced my cash because I don't track my cash balance that closely.

Relic October 28 2005 12:24 PM EDT

Same problem here, just bought 200 BA, didn't get it, but my purchasable BA amount went down to 300 from 500.

As noted in the "new link and stuff" thread:

"This may not be related to this change, as Jon was doing some "fixing" last night, but I can't buy _any_ BA. It said I could feel free to purchase 503, I tried to purchase 25 (just to farm Wuss a little), and after [enter] it said I had zero BA left to buy. However, I also am still at zero BA available."

AdminJonathan October 28 2005 12:25 PM EDT

yes, there was a bug in effect briefly while I was working on BA purchasing just now. it's fixed now.

Relic October 28 2005 12:26 PM EDT

It looks like my BA vanished like a fart in the wind.....No refunds, no exchanges, and don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out! :P

RAMPAGE October 28 2005 12:28 PM EDT

I've been seeing a lot of strange quirks since they start messing with the left hand window.
Try refreshing the left window so far that has worked for me so far.

Quark October 28 2005 12:33 PM EDT

So if the bug is fixed, can I have my 300 BA now? Or if I never paid for it, can I get my max increased?

Quark October 28 2005 12:35 PM EDT

I hear from Glory that there are no refunds or increases to the BA limit. Is it too complicated to run a query on purchases in the past x minutes and run a credit to those players?

That's it! I quit! I'm selling out!



/me realizes the addiction is too strong.

Oh well. Sucks for cp's today.

<Biscuitback> G will never quit
<Biscuitback> he's a supremer for life

Pysche October 28 2005 1:35 PM EDT

I'm not sure but I think G just broke Todd's record for shortest time quitting. ;)

maulaxe October 28 2005 4:19 PM EDT

so that makes the record a whopping... 2 ellipsis and 2 <p>breaks!

Special J October 28 2005 5:22 PM EDT

Isn't an ellipsis made of 3 periods? He used 5, so thats out and it was a linebreak, not a new paragraph.

So, the quitting time has now been cut to the exact same post as the coming back post.

I tried to buy some BA yesterday, it took the amount of BA available to buy off of the counter, but didn't take my money OR give me BA. i miss buying BA on the other screen...why can't we have both? too complicated?

Maelstrom October 29 2005 12:01 PM EDT

..but didn't take my money OR give me BA

Did you click "cancel" instead of "ok"? :p

Bootsanator October 29 2005 1:01 PM EDT

no, i didn't hit cancel, and if i did, it should've still shown that i had like, 400something BA left to buy.

QBRanger October 29 2005 2:33 PM EDT

Happened to me also,

Just bought 111 BA and it never showed up. :(((((

QBRanger October 29 2005 2:33 PM EDT

Just happened again.

Come on now!!!!!!!!

QBRanger October 29 2005 2:35 PM EDT

Now when i fight and I get:

You may also purchase BA: up to 222 more today at the Manage Characters page.

But whenI use the link Verifex used it says I cannot buy any BA left.

QBRanger October 29 2005 2:36 PM EDT

And I noticed it did not take money for the 222 BA that I tried to buy.

QBRanger October 29 2005 2:48 PM EDT


I installed FF and ran CB2 on it and guess what, I can buy my 222 BA now.

So it seems this is a IE bug.

QBOddBird October 29 2005 3:09 PM EDT

Is anyone surprised? xP

chappy [Soup Ream] October 29 2005 3:22 PM EDT

I can't buy my BA .. not sure how much i lost but I know it's about 200 - 300 ... I can't use ff at work so I'm stuck with good ol IE ... :(

AdminG Beee October 29 2005 3:31 PM EDT

I logged in with my IE browser.

Works fine for me on both IE and FF.

Bootsanator October 29 2005 3:32 PM EDT

I use FF and i lost the several hundred BA yesterday. i didn't lose money, i just lost the ability to buy them, they disappeared, and i didn't get 'em.

must not be just an IE issue. in addition, when you run out of BA, the link there still sends you to manage characters, even though you can't buy BA there. i want to just get it on manage characters, though, so, please can we have Both options? :)
