NCB advice, how to maximize my $$$ (in General)

horseguy001 October 3 2007 1:24 PM EDT

My second NCB is starting up soon, and my goal with this one is to burn 70% of all of my BA, which should put me into the 6 BA refresh. Now, since I have limited funds, I will be investing about 15 mil into the purchase of BA.

When is the best time in my NCB to purchase my BA, in order to maximize my MPR? Should I buy it early on when I have a 100% challenge bonus but it's worth less, or should I load up on it later around the 7/20 mark?

Thanks for any help.

Buy ba until you run out of money, then save what you make and buy only during big xp...
On a side note i posted this using my cell and opera mini...

pretty sure burning only 70% of your BA will not get you into 6 ba refresh.

If NCB is truly calculated correctly, and he wins almost all of his fights, it will. Seeing as 66% of top MPR is roughly 2 mil MPR :\

i would think that if are sure you cannot buy it all, then buying only during bonus xp times up until you hit the 7/20 rate would be a great plan. then if you see you should have enough buying it all the time.

I guess that makes sense, just go nuts until I run out of cash.

I figure I will be using my RoE (which is named) until my max tat catches up with my tattoo, which is when I will switch over. So that should help me gain some ground as well.

I would seriously like to think some dedication and 15 mil can help me hit 2,100,000 mpr. Plus I will be 2 minions at that point, so when I hire on 3 and 4 at the end of my NCB it should put me into that nice 6/20 zone.

Suggest buying BA within the first 3 days to get a jump and can lay off buying for maybe a week or two. ;)

Do you realize how expensive it is to hire minions once you get to 2M MPR?

Plan on at least 20M per new minion.

my current mpr is:


the cost for new minions:

Enlist for $37,204,204
Enlist for $14,881,681

Ill be 2minions right from the start, so I am planning on about 30 mil total for both. I know its expensive, but I just cant go 4 from the start, without having nasty experience dilution (a big problem with the Space Knights) and having to level my tattoo all at the same time.

at what point does you ba start to cost? i thought the whole ncb was free?

NUB has free BA. NCB has increased BA costs.
