Random BA Price Change (in General)
Yesterday, the price per BA was WELL over 900. Probably like 960. Today, the BA are 850 each. No one else seems to have the same change, but I know I do.
So, possible things:
One, there's just a bug and my BA went down for no reason.
Two, there's a change and I'm just lucky.
Three, there WAS a bug and I've been ripped for millions.
... Please don't be 3 :P

Your BA should be even less than that. My BA cost is 879 and that's at 1.7 mil MPR. You're 400k less. I think it could be three..

Retire that char, and the price for ba will go down as well ^_^
The NCB shouldn't be affecting anything. I don't use it.

my BA cost went down almost $300 when the NCB expired on Hatchet NCB take 1, even though i hadn't used it for over 2 and a half months beforehand...
Well, still doesn't explain the sudden overnight drop.

I think the major problem at hand is that his BA cost has always been around 960. Basically, he's always been paying higher than everyone else, bar N*B.
Maybe you dropped down a regen rate. If your MPR is growing slowly compared to the top, you may have gone from 8 to 9 or something.
I told you retire your NCB char... and after cache flush you will be back to normal...
Even if you don't use the NCB, it still affects your BA cost.
that is kinda odd because my ba cost is like 1k and im at
PR / MPR: 67,067 / 52,405
That's normal, NCBs are expensive.
MAN!?! WHAT THE HECK!?
Retired that NCB. Guess what? BA price dropped be a whopping 11 each.
Will someone please explain why CB hates me?

Jon.... Please don't make me wait a week for ideas of why this is happening when no else can possibly help.....

With what Mr Wizard said, it looks like you had about an accurate price for NCB BA even at a low level. The rewards can't be too far off of each other and the cost should be based on rewards.
And now that you've retired the NCB, your rewards seem to fit into this <a href="http://www.carnageblender.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=002GyT">post</a>.
$860 for 1.4 mil MPR at that time.
I dunno, it all seems to fit.

Oh forgot to change to HTML and it went through anyway..
That doesn't explain the inexplicable price drop while still using NCB, or why getting rid of the NCB would only account for 11 CB per BA difference.

because BA for the NCB doesn't cost 10k each at 13k MPR like your's was.
okay, so back to the original question. Why the overnight drop!?

you were tired, and got the 6 and 9 mixed up...
dont get me wrong, they are very similar...almost as if you turned one upside...down?

Getting 6 and 9 mixed up is a horrible, horrible mistake.

At Kentucky Fried Chicken they get the 6 and 9 wrong!
I recently ordered 6 Hotwings there and got 9 of them!

> Then why won't he post in my bloody bug thread!/?
because players generally get all uptight when my answer is "there is no bug here, but I don't feel like the time spent convincing you of that would be worth it. sorry."
you did ask. :)

> And that's the kind of ridiculous answer that makes me want to quit sometimes.
See? That's why I didn't answer. But you kept harping on it so that I went against my better judgement. :(
I regret saying that, but it frustrates me you couldn't just say "it's not a bug" and I could have went back and figured it out. Instead, I got to wait a few days, assuming someone would help me out, the whole time you knew it wasn't a bug. I wouldn't have been upset once I had an answer. I'm just annoyed that I had to wait days for such a simple answer.
So, basically, I am sorry for saying that. But why couldn't you take the 1 minute to say it's not a bug? Would have saved me, and the people who helped me try and figure it out, a good bit of time.

today is the first I looked at this thread, and it looked like you had arrived at the not-a-bug conclusion without me.
December 11 2007 6:43 PM EST
(or, if not you, at least everyone else. :)
Eh. I never thought it was a bug until nothing else panned out. And the only solution that does make sense (a 10k MPR shift on a non-used NCB) seems odd. I'll be testing that out.
