8/20 in 9 days :( just venting :) (in General)

i dont know what affects my ba per 20 mins i think its either pr or mpr but all i know is that after only 9 days of playing its a bit harsh cutting virtualy 20% of my ba the way its going i'll be down to 6/10 in a month :( also when i went from 10/20 to 9/20 i got a noticable reward increase but when i went from 9/20 to 8/20 i didnt in fact it seems its gone backwards could be just randomly bad rewards but i used 40 ba since i went 8/20 so im not sure that would be conclusive enough.

i think there should be a time period for NUBs going down in ba per 20 mins in order to keep NUB's involved in the game long enough to like it enough to stay long term. obviously its to late for me but i believe it would influence more people to play longer than the tutorial

ummm... lower BA regen is a good thing... Your rewards are increased to compensate, maning you are less likely to miss BA, and on the occasions that you do, the 160 you come back to are worth more than 160 of a lower regen... 8/20 in 9 days is a *good* thing... a *very*good* thing... smile :D

Far as player retention goes, I think most newer people would like 700 BA that they can spend 100% of more than 1k BA that they can only spend 75% of... Sure, with the second option, you get 50 more BA, but with the first, you aren't falling behind those who are also able to spend all their BA ^_^

I think it is your mpr that determines the BA regen rate and trust me you won't hit 6/20 anytime soon. Currently you need to reach about 2.4mil mpr to get 6/20 so yea good luck doing that in a month. Also once you get higher up you wont be able to fight all 100% challenge bonus people so that slows you down more too.

The lower your amount of replenished BA per 20 minutes, the higher your rewards will be, and the more worth your 160 BA stack will be.

And thus, the less often you will have to play. But each loss will also be more costly, and each clan point be that much rarer.

Also, if you think more BA is going to keep NUB players active, then remind them that they can 'buy' X amount for nothing...
