I thought rewards were linear (Read inside) (in General)

Flamey July 26 2007 8:32 AM EDT

Couldn't quite fit what I'm trying to say in thread title, so I'll try to explain it here. I was under the impression that a good reward was a good cash and xp reward. I thought they were linear or scaled. For example, a good cash reward is $600 a good xp reward is 100 xp, I thought I would get both, but I've only recently noticed I can get a high cash reward and a low xp reward or vice versa.

Was it always like this? Maybe it was less obvious to me before the change because rewards got doubled.

It's been like this since as far back as May of 05. That's when I first pointed it out to someone.

It isn't like this for me. I get good cash and exp. rewards from of the time.. It may be because I am on the NCB, who knows.

Yes it has always been like this. XP and cash rewards are "rolled" independently of each other.

Zach -- Yes, you can get both good, both bad, or one and one. They are, as mentioned, rolled separately.

Try using the abr command of Frodbot to see your Average Battle reward. That is the only amount that really matters anyways.

I have noticed the following From that, I have to conclude in order to get best of the both worlds, I need to fight people who give me a positive challenge bonus (to reap cash rewards) AND also have MPR near my MPR or higher.
