Question about becoming a supporter through CB2 Money (in General)

GO PATS November 24 2005 8:07 AM EST

Reading through the "Help Support CB!" section I noticed that the site op says that it may be possible to gain support through another player if PayPal is not an option.

I am willing to pay in CB2 Money for te right to become a supporter. So if any of you were planning on buying money from anyone, please, talk to me about making me a supporter instead!

This is only a preliminary message about this, I really just wanted to know if it was plausable and if anyone was interested. I have some money saved up and will have more soon.

So lets sum it up.

How much CB Money will it take for you to donate US$10 to Carnage Blender for me through PayPal to let me become a supporter?

CB2 $1 million is worth around $15 USD

so 10 usd ~670k ish

People still have this misconception that 1 million cb2 is being sold for 15 usd.

I, as well as many others, have bought cb2 recently for as low as 11 usd. I have even bought cb2 at a rate of 10:1. 15:1 is hopefully a thing of the past.

In fact, Wonderpuff just sold 15 million at a rate of 10.8:1 to chappy.

So in real terms supportership is a bit more expensive than 670k cb2. IMO, it is more like 900k-1million cb2 for supportership now.

So, Moosh.

I will do it for 1 million cb2. CM me if your interested.

the rate depends on who your dealing with these days

AdminShade November 24 2005 8:31 AM EST

to be completely honest the rates indeed depend on who you are dealing with these days.

last week all i saw was 1 mil = $15
this week all i see is 1 mil ~$10 - $12

so yes perhaps it is some more expensive, either due to a drop in demand or to an increase in supply....

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] November 24 2005 8:51 AM EST

$650k and it's yours. CM me for the details. :)

Of course, as Bast just showed by example, supportership purchases can be as much about helping an interested player join the fold as getting the best deal off of the transaction. Good on you, Bast!

QBRanger November 24 2005 10:21 AM EST


Instead of taking a pot shot at me, why not just offer to pay for it yourself?

Just a thought.

QBOddBird November 24 2005 10:56 AM EST

That didn't strike me as a pot shot, but as a compliment to Bast for her generous offer. ^_^ And definitely good on you Bast.

Shouldn't this be in the FS/WTB space. Ha.

AdminShade November 24 2005 11:19 AM EST

this was a question related to the exchange rate, not a WTB thread, but apparently some people have bended the topic.

Tezmac November 24 2005 12:25 PM EST

Ah, so just over a week ago this was scamming and the community decided Nightstrike deserved to be burned at the stake, but now that our one of our esteemed QBs does it we decide it's cool. Gotcha.

My how the value of CB has dropped oh so quickly.

Thank you Bast for truly showing us what being a QB is all about. :O)

QBRanger November 24 2005 12:39 PM EST


Your quite funny.

Many people did not think that previous post was scamming and were in fact quite upset it got deleted. I still think it was wrong for it to get deleted.

And yes, the value of cb2 has dropped now that many refuse to pay such high prices for it.

Maelstrom November 24 2005 12:56 PM EST

Lots of people are starting NCB character these days, they're making much less cash from battles, and they need much more cash for buying BA. The demand for buying $cb2 seems to be going up, yet the price for selling is going down. Am I the only one that finds that weird?

(CB1)logan666 [Jago] November 24 2005 1:00 PM EST

Not really that weird if the supply out weights the demand.

Maelstrom November 24 2005 1:01 PM EST

Oh yeah, it's the NUB character that are the suppliers... how could I forget about them ;)

Quark November 24 2005 1:12 PM EST

My apologies to Ranger. At the time it was indeed meant as a sideswipe, and that was not appropriate for me to do.

I have always considered supportership purchases to be partly to benefit the community, and usually keep my eye out to pay for one in case one sits there for too long or is paying too high a price. That's why I opened the thread in the first place.

But nonetheless, I was out of line.

Mikel [Bring it] November 24 2005 2:12 PM EST

Maelstrom, how can you say the NCB is hurting us?
In my rewards, I average about 50% CB2 vs the cost of buying my BA. So thru the course of the day, I'm moving ahead.
The advantage of the NCB is that it can hit UP and get better rewards, thus making more money and grow faster xp wise. People aren't running out and upgrading their mega weapons now to keep a foothold in the top 10.
That might change as the first wave of NCB's gets up there, but until then, The top 5 or so is on cruise control.

Synco November 24 2005 2:28 PM EST

G, what do you mean by "that's why I opened the thread in the first place?"

Maelstrom November 24 2005 2:42 PM EST

Mikel, with my new NCB character, my BA costs about three times the amount I make in a single battle. Of course, I'm not yet strong enough to try attacking people much higher than myself, so I can't get lots of cash from a battle... yet ;)

And I didn't in any way mean to imply that the NCB was hurting us, simply that the money you make doesn't equal the money you want to spend, which is really the whole point behind the NCB.

Quark November 25 2005 11:09 AM EST

I meant that's why I read the thread - trolling for people who's supportership needs weren't being met.

AdminNightStrike November 27 2005 8:02 PM EST

If real life were less hectic, I guarantee I would have a lengthy post to add here (and I would have had time to go back and finish the other thread that Tezmac referenced.) But it isn't, and I don't. I will say this:

It's not about hijacking.
It's not about taking advantage of new players.
Ranger is a fine QB. He does not maintain a holier-than-thou "I'm a QB so I control CB" attitude. He maintains the exact same attitude he had prior to becoming QB.
If you don't think a supportership should cost $1m, then make your own offer instead of whining about it.

I hope I can post more later. I will try, but no promises.
