Question about helping NCB users. (in General)

Well, I was thinking about turning one of my weaker character into a high MPR character with like all the exp in something worthless. Then letting my friends use it to give quick, huge boosts to MPR by beating him. So, basically, is this against the rules in any way? or just heavily frowned upon? And if I opened it to the whole game for attacking, would that be against the rules?

Also, before I get ahead of myself, would the low score it would get quickly make this a worthless idea?

If the score falls too much the attackers won't get much in the way of rewards from it.

When your score drops below your MPR for a long time, your character gets auto-retired (or deleted? unsure), so if you were to do this, it wouldn't last a very long time. Not to mention it gets *REALLY* boring building your MPR fast by attacking one character. 30 seconds per refresh back to consciousness and then another kill...5 minutes to kill your guy 10 times and make up the BA you'll refresh in 10 minutes.


Assuming you were going to build your MPR by attacking this one character. Otherwise, he's just a nice little exp bump as you go down the fightlist; often as not, unconscious, as other players would be attacking him too.


It isn't like it is against any rules, it just doesn't seem that helpful from where I'm looking at it.

Despite a much higher MPR?

Hmmm, okay thanks. If I decided to do this I would have to do it a different way. Okay guys thanks =D

It will get auto retired if its score/mpr is too bad. How can you stop "the whole game" attacking it?

weak characters will never be able to live if they aren't played often. ;)

This is exactly what used to happen in CB1, pre- January 2003 ::shudder::
Back then, you could equip base daggers on mages and remove the weapon from tanks, essentially making them useless. Then people could farm you endlessly. However the new system is especially designed to beat that, so it would be very hard to do now.
