Ranger/BBQ Bet, 1/10 odds. (in Public Record)

QBOddBird September 18 2006 10:28 AM EDT

<Ranger> ill bet you that by the time your NCB is over your UC will not be 150
<BBQ> I'll bet you it is.
<Ranger> 1M cb2
<Ranger> how about this, you pay me 100k and ill pay you 1M if you make it
<Ranger> assuming Jon does not change things to the way it levels etc...
<BBQ> Yeah
<Ranger> Post the bet, 10 to 1 odds
<BBQ> Alright, we've got a deal then
<Ranger> and feel free to use/borrow/steal any items you need to get there. If you borrow the top HG's to get there for 1 min, you win
<Ranger> deal
<Ranger> you post it BBQ
<BBQ> deal. I'm posting now
<Ranger> part of me wants to see how far you can get it

As you can see, he's betting 1M CB2 that I can't hit 150 UC by the end of my NCB, assuming Jon makes no major UC changes. I'm putting up 100k, though I'd be willing to put up more if I wasn't already going to be in deep debt at the end of my NCB. ~_^

Confirm here, Ranger.

Good Luck.

QBBarzooMonkey September 18 2006 10:39 AM EDT

Not that it's been asked for, but my well-experienced and educated two cents is that that would be absolutely impossible. Once you hit 100-105, the climb is astronomically steep, both in XP cost, and $ costs to push your gear up. :P

QBBarzooMonkey September 18 2006 10:43 AM EDT

Not that I want to discourage you from trying, though, so when you're ready, let me know and I'll loan you the +15 HGs long enough to win the bet :)

deifeln September 18 2006 11:38 AM EDT

BBQ... would you take this bet two ways? I'd pony up a million if you do it in return for 100k if you don't. Just confirm in this post.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 18 2006 12:06 PM EDT

You could fire your other minion and train nothing but UC and still not break 110.

QBOddBird September 18 2006 12:44 PM EDT

Sorry deifeln - this is just between me and Ranger. ~_^

And I disagree. If (100) is broken at level 500k with decent gears on, which it is, then I think I can get the next 50 effect before my NCB is up. ~_^

deifeln September 18 2006 12:47 PM EDT

I'd offer 20 to 1 odds if you'd take a 200k bet (I'd owe you 4 million). I really don't think what you're trying is possible, but I really want to see you try.

QBsutekh137 September 18 2006 12:47 PM EDT

If not, the next contest can be a lesson on exponents. *smile*

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 18 2006 12:49 PM EDT

Make sure to name BM HG, and name your Gi! ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 18 2006 12:49 PM EDT

Oh, and stick an RoE on your UC minion. I've a named one you can use if you want. ;)

QBOddBird September 18 2006 12:51 PM EDT

Would naming the Gi have any effect? I'm pretty sure that'll just increase the + on it, not the natural +10 to UC....

*shrugs* I'll check on this when I get back in a couple hours.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 18 2006 12:51 PM EDT

Hmmm... I'm not sure naming your Gi would do anything... But mane those HG! ;)

QBRanger September 18 2006 1:42 PM EDT

Certainly mane those HG's. That will help if on horseback.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 18 2006 2:06 PM EDT

you could fire your other minion AND RoE all the way and still not break 120...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 18 2006 2:17 PM EDT

:P Mane.... I like horsies! ;)

TrueDevil [AAA] September 18 2006 2:21 PM EDT

Only way to achieve this is if you played like Sutekh/Tuffbunny, single minion, mage or whatever, and nearing the end of your NCB , untrain all and put all the exp to UC and hopefully 5 mil base or even more UC would do the trick. (even then I'm not too sure if let's say 7 mil UC including equip would achieve (150) )

Is this against the rule of the bet or not ?

QBBarzooMonkey September 18 2006 2:24 PM EDT

Yes, 500k level with decent gear will get you (100), but then the required XP goes up drastically after (100). The highest I ever got "The Artful Dodger" to was (125), and that was with full "best in the game" gear, and almost 1 mil level in XP trained... Not to mentioned that it was all named. But not maned, because I didn't have my ponies then...

But, good luck with it! :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 18 2006 2:34 PM EDT

wow you made it to 125 BM, I forgot about that...

QBRanger September 18 2006 2:35 PM EDT

I don't care if he buys Sut's character and unlearns/learns UC. He just needs to show me level 150 by the date his NCB ends on his xurrent NCB character.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 18 2006 4:52 PM EDT

so you could theoretically have a char who only had UC trained (he never gets hit anyway, what's he need HP for?) and a ToA, who only fought tank teams with no GA...and then maybe in a year or two you'd see 150...

QBOddBird September 18 2006 5:17 PM EDT

*shrugs* I still will hit 150. I'll have to borrow some nice HGs and some very good Elvens, if only for an hour or so, but I'll still hit it. Just watch.

QBOddBird September 18 2006 5:26 PM EDT

Unarmed Combat: 572,922/197,643 (66)

W/O Elvens: 480,633/197,643 (59)

W/O UC gears: 197,643 (31)

So my Gears (minus Elvens, as I don't have a clue what they'll add later) are adding 28 UC effect levels. So I need (with Elvens) a trained UC of effect 122. I'll be using bigger HGs and Elvens, of course, but this gives me something to aim for. ^_^

QBOddBird September 18 2006 10:20 PM EDT

I accept deifeln's bet as well, if he'd just confirm. Too good to pass up. ^_^

deifeln September 18 2006 10:21 PM EDT

I confirm. You owe me 200k when you lose. :o)

QBOddBird September 18 2006 10:24 PM EDT

Thanks for confirming, and also for the free 4M!

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 19 2006 5:54 AM EDT

i do believe with the recent changes this bet is off?

Unappreciated Misnomer September 19 2006 6:41 AM EDT

bbq if there is only thing you want to accomplish by xmas other than getting maned or a pony is to get to win these 2 bets!!!go bbq

AdminShade September 19 2006 7:19 AM EDT

The bet is off due to the recent changes.

QBOddBird September 19 2006 8:40 AM EDT

It is?

QBRanger September 19 2006 8:41 AM EDT

I still do not see BBQ with a 150 UC, even during this week.

The bet is still on.

QBOddBird September 19 2006 8:44 AM EDT

<Ranger> the bet is still on
<BBQ> OK. I thought it out to be, since he didn't change how UC grows
<Ranger> of course

OK, thought so. ^_^ Hurrah, and so it continues.

QBOddBird September 23 2006 12:51 AM EDT

I haven't asked either deifeln or Ranger about it yet (other than a quick CM sent to Ranger before I found this thread), but I'm not going to count any AoF worn whenever I am equipping items to hit effect (150), as the item was not around when the bets were made.


QBRanger September 23 2006 6:34 AM EDT

For me, any items in play at the time count.

Got to roll with the punches of changemonth.
