NUB Question with Forging (in General)


Godpanda December 8 2006 3:16 PM EST

Do NUBs really need to have the bonus applied to forging? The goal of the NUB was to allow new players a chance to get to the top, which is understandable if unlikeable.

But, giving them the bonus to forging just lets them build money up, which doesn't help. It takes away from more experienced forging because we can't compete with NUB (we can, but it's way harder).

Also, giving NUB users the ability to forge increases the chance of them selling out. They will just have money and very little character so will have less reason to stick with it.


Just curious what everyone thought.

no, forging is tied to cash rewards not xp...

I disagree. People who have been here from the start have had the ability to forge the entire time, (like proteus) thus building up massive networth. If a newb wants to forge up his gear, there should be a bonus given to that as well, just so they can get a decent networth as well.

As for the selling out thing, does it really matter? It makes the USD spenders happy, it makes the person selling happy, and since the vast majority of us don't really care, it doesn't affect us. And if the only reason the person stayed around cb was to make money, do you really want them here anyways?

this post actually started as i said that i forged 658k in 24 hours, then Oleander said well that doesnt count then (as i was using NUB at the time) so we started debating, i said well obviously it counts or else it wouldnt be in the system, but he posted this thread hopefully to get some back up from what he said. however i think NUBS should get the chance to forge up their items, as the real reason for a NUb was to give off a better chance to reach higher level chars, to do this they need to forge maybe a little or alot, up to them but they need to forge their gear or else they wont be reaching the point of having the NUB which is get a high MPR/score fast. I rest my case for now lol.

well if the nub increases money per battle... and people mainly forge so that they can get $$$$ why not negate the effect of additional money per battle, if everyones going to cry about it.
