Battle rewards too low? (in General)

[SIBT]Gardiner Amarth February 16 2006 3:50 PM EST

OK first of all, maybe there's a thread somewhere that explains what I'm seeing in terms of my battle rewards. If so, I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. Here's what I'm seeing:
I'm fighting up. The lowest opponent in my favorites list is around 140k PR higher than I am, and the highest is about 300k higher. My PR/MPR is 649,620 / 529,418 . I've noticed a lot of times fighting the opponents higher in my fight list is only returning around between 150$ and 200$ and 40 or so xp each for my 3 minion team. Does this sound about right to anyone? It seems low to me, which is why I'm posting this to begin with...maybe I'm just greedy. :) Thoughts?

Yea, after NUB I don't like Battlerewards either...

Too low, not worth the time put into it.... :(

lol... so what you're saying is...

NUB spoils you?

First thing I see is that your fighting via PR/MPR instead of fighting opponents via score. The number 1 factor in figuring your rewards is THEIR score VS YOUR PR. You need to fight as high a SCORE as possible.

Second thing is that your rewards are not that low. For a 4 minion team I get about 30 xp per battle and 100-200 cb2 per win. Of course I do not fight up.

That's another problem of NUB, spoils the little kids.

So what your saying is that the game is not worth it without the NUB?

Gee, who would have thought that? Not I.

There's the problem, I'm fighting in terms of PR/MPR instead of score. Thanks, Ranger. About the NUB: I wouldn't know, I've never had the NUB status nor created an NCB character.

Killah, I see several opponents that give me between 200 and 300 bucks regularly, fighting up by score. As soon as someone falls down in score, my rewards go down to 100-150 and I drop them off my favorites. YMMV. Good luck!

I get 300$ and 150 exp per battle

Once your new user bonus is over you can stop expecting to pass people by. If the math is correct then you will shoot to where everyone around you fights as much as you do, That being said, either get use to stagnation quickly or change your fighting habbits.

rewards are much lower than most folks expect them to be, it seems to me that rewards actually cap rather low (100-200k) mpr, and never go up much after that...if you have a specific enough strat to beat folks with a score double your PR your rewards should stay at the higher 300-400 cb range

Tyra February 17 2006 4:19 AM EST

Hm well, no, it is just a mix of low rewards, bad strat, debt, and personal problems that makes me want to play less than before...

Ranger, you're exempt from the fighting down thing since you are in the top 10, your rewards aren't actually affected by that.
And yes Killah, fighting up by pr means nothing if their score is lower than yours.
