NCB into NUB? (in General)
a Character belonging to Fanta
Created September 29, 2006 (NUB until January 27)
that's from the user page of Lawful Awesome, a char I just transfered to Fanta...
I think I had NCB till the 26th of Jan...so I assume this is supposed to work that way...
nope, his nub goes to Jan 29th...
Wow...this makes for some interesting options...

I don't think its supposed to be this way. Probably a bug or something.
best bug ever....he can't have an NCB char...because he has the NUB.
and it's not like it extended his bonus or anything...
Yeah, I do get a NUB bonus from this... that's strange.
fantastic is what it is...we now know that NCB chars are worth something

This is working as designed. The NCB wasn't turned into a NUB; Fanta just continues to get his normal NUB with novice's old character, but only until the end of the NCB bonus time.
So, you can't double up on bonuses, and you can't extend a NUB beyond its normal expiration.

So tell me if I'm getting this wrong, but - I could start a NCB, raise it quickly to 700k MPR, then send it off to a NUB and it would get NUB bonuses on it until its NCB period expires?

BBQ: the NUB would not receive the NUB money bonus on the NCB char, he would only receive the same NCB bonus that you were previously receiving.

That's pretty neat-o. =)

Oh. Well then I don't like this...
I agree, that is very cool :D

That means we can transfer a large character with NCB and the newbie can use his NUB on the NCB character? That doesn't seem right.
why do i see the smart ones 'quiting' and come back as 'someone else' and buy a large char....

Basically, you gain tremendous PR in 3 months of NCB, then u transfer it to a fresh NUB. They only gain the bonus on that char for the month that was left of NCB. Then, it's gone. Meanwhile, they would still have their original NUB on their created chars. At least, I think that's what Jonathan meant.
