Challenge bonus display question (in General)
September 22 2008 6:55 AM EDT
Why is it that on some fights my challenge bonus displays at 0%, and others it displays at 'none'. Is there a difference between the two? Or just some strange inconsistency with the display method?
I've noticed the same thing. Maybe 0% is just a decimal but it's rounded down (or up in the case of a small negative decimal), while when nothing shows it is exactly that: nothing. As in, zero bonus.
*shrug* just a wild guess though.

Yeah, I'd thought the same thing. It's the only reason - apart from it being a bug - that I can think for it to be that way.
not sure why, but i usually see the 0 after someone else in my list has given me some kind of bonus. so i get a bonus or two, then the next one without a bonus shows 0 and then all others afterward show no number, until i get back to the bonus people.
well scrap my post, it seems more of a trend with the order of my fight list than what i had though above.
i wonder if it shows for only 6 ba regen folks or all?
in effect, perhaps the zeroes are true zeroes and the blanks are what would be negatives for 6 pointers?

I think when its zero it means 0-1% but not actually 1%. Rounding down? None would be < 0.
If you can get a negative challenge bonus then it can be less than zero.
when do challenge bonuses start?
Here I am, at 300 MPR, beating 2.5K Score people and not getting challenge Bonus show at all. :(
seems like 500 mpr stands out as some milestone, just not sure if it is the one you seek. sorry.

It's your VPR, not your MPR.
Looking at your battles you have too much untrained xp making your VPR quite high.

Oh yeah, i think the 'none' only occurs with people who get 6/20, because they cannot get a negative challenge bonus.
So 0% would be rounded indeed.
Can anyone confirm this?
(i have 9/20 and never had 'none' in my challenge bonus)
Seems to be about 1,000 MPR I started getting a challenge bonus. ;)

None is only for 6/20 people. Confirmed? :)
how can anyone other than Jon confirms this? all we can do is contradict it. As in someone not in 6/20 seeing "none" bonus. but then if no one can contradict it, I suppose we can accept it as one of the CB's truth.
"how can anyone other than Jon confirms this? "
while we can't really confirm it, all it takes is one person, not in 6/20, posting that they see it to confirm it is wrong.

I've never been in 6/20 and never seen it, and the reasoning makes a lot of sense, so I'm pretty confident that answer is right.
