Heh, I only checked 1, 2, and 9.

There are multiple solutions to this. I think, the best would be have a one month period when a new player starts (or 2 weeks), when they don't get a NUB and they just have to learn the ropes.

Secondly, don't allow USD xfers on the game.

But... mainly we'll just have to live with it I think.

You know, as much as I dislike the use of USD in general in this game, I like to be able to get some myself when I need it, and I like to be able to buy my CBD back when I don't anymore.

So, what I mean to say is, I like someone to be selling CBD when I need it. Even if that means people play only for cash, which is not so great.

Ahhh, I guess my view on this is kinda paradoxal. Love/hate thing you know?

Hey, thats all me =(

i used and spent money on this game to get things and items so don't blame it all on the NUB and me... i payed for some of that myself and to be hated 10 times for it makes me sad =(

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] June 20 2007 3:01 PM EDT

Gotta take into account the guy is gonna be gone for a month too...What use is there to let the CBD rest all that time serving no purpose?

lostling June 20 2007 3:06 PM EDT

lol people do what people do -.- y not let them...

lostling June 20 2007 3:41 PM EDT

consider this 42mill isnt a lot for a NUB... yep

Miandrital June 20 2007 3:42 PM EDT

Perhaps I should clarify:

I have no problem with selling CBD for USD. However, when a person has the NUB until June 24, and they happen to also be selling out on June 20, I get upset.

If there was a way we could make the NUB have the same exp boost as the NCB, but the normal BA cost, I would much prefer that as opposed to the current situation.

Simple, remove the increased BA cost, and the increased Cash rewards. ;)

TheWyldeOne June 20 2007 3:48 PM EDT

im not selling out completely... im too addicted to the game :P i will be back as soon as i get back to start an NCB i just thought i had no use for these things anymore and it is just coincidental that my NUB ends in summer, where my family have a long holiday every year... so im sorry if i that has made you sad but a bit of family time is nice too =)

I think the NUB bonus is a necessity.

I know I would not have been able to choose my current NCB strategy if I hadn't made all that NUB money to start with.

I some people are smart enough to exploit it to its full potential (I wasn't), then good for them.

I don't understand why it would be a problem if other people want to send them cash for their CB$? In the end, both parties are happy and isn't that what really counts?

My thing is this. it's 330$ over 4 months... If someone wants to play all they can to make 330$ in a 4 month timeframe who cares. For every person that stays I don't care if 10 sell out, at least we get people in the game that love playing it. :)

Wait, what's the problem?

Reason #11

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 20 2007 5:13 PM EDT

TWO, if you plan to start again competitivly, you'll be best off keeping the money. The NCB doesn't earn as much, and is balanced around that (and using cash to buy BA).

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 20 2007 5:16 PM EDT

Edit: If you want to make your money work for you while you're away on holiday, speak to one of the lender guys, see if you can invest your money with them for some sort of return when you want it back.

They might not be interested, but it's worth a shot. ;)

lostling June 20 2007 5:20 PM EDT

been there done that nobody is interested

Not all that money was made from his NUB, so you should do some research before you make accusations. I actually sold him some him some of his mils.

ScY June 20 2007 11:55 PM EDT

LOL mian

$330 divided by endless hours in front of the computer. He probably made 5 cents an hour.

hey that reason 11 was my purchase sure was a score hey. As to the bonuses i have no problem. The hardest part starting a game is building up ones equipment and experimenting. Having some extra cash through the bonus allows them to make a few mistakes try a few things and ultimately stay with the game. The only thing i want to see change in regards to bonus is a reduction in the random variable and a bit more consistancy.

TH, the amount of time he probably actually spent fighting people may have been around an hour a day. He was more likely getting an average of $3/hour for something which is far from hard work.

Either throw your hat in with the crowd asking for a reset and an end to player to player transfers (fat chance) or come up with a better solution.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 21 2007 11:10 AM EDT

Simple, remove the increased BA cost, and the increased Cash rewards. ;)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 21 2007 1:18 PM EDT

free, or cheap, ba for nubs and reduced cash awards gets my vote!

Talion June 21 2007 2:07 PM EDT

It doesn't get mine. Remove the NUB and a lot more players will quit before even getting a chance to learn about CBII.

The NUB is great in my opinion. Keep it just the way it is.
