Problem with NCB amount (in General)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 3 2006 5:38 AM EDT

It's that time agian! :D I've created my new NCB team. I've not shied away from my original 2 mage idea, but I will say tanks hurt a lot more at lower levels now! ;)

I think there might be a problem with the bonus percent given though (or I was just unlucky and the top team fired a minion recently...)

Johnnywas started his new NCB team on the 30th of June, and has a bonus of 169%.

I started mine today (3rd of July) and have a bonus of 163%.

Is there any reason my bonus should be lower than Johnnys, especially as I started (a few days) later than him?

Maybe the system thinks I need more of a bonus than you! I thought about a minion being fired but I haven't been watching the upper teams closely enough to notice a difference.

But would one minion make a difference in the bonus of 6%? That seems like a fairly large difference.....

very interesting...

public complaints about JW's being bigger than childish.

;) Bonus envy!

Another possibility is that the top team retrained, which dropped their MPR enough to give me a lower bonus.

Lucky Johnny! ;)

Wow I guess this proves that the boni are in fact based on top MPR...which I could have sworn it wasn't.

The current Top MPR is held by Koyaanisqatsi (1,755,352), a quick look at the history graph (>_< I have problems reading these!) shows an MPR dip at the beggining og July.

Looks like that's the answer!

Looks like I've got an unfair advantage. Oh dear, does that mean I'm the new Todd?

There was a bug that temporarily lowers NCB every 30 days. It will be fixed after the next cache flush.

Roxxorz! :D

No fair! GL gets better bonus! My NCB just ran out!!!!!!!

Jon, I forgot to check earlier, but my bonus is still 163%.

Should it have increased with a cache flush?

Mine is 160% from the very start :s
