Rolling bonus (in General)

Guide to rolling bonus
1. Rolling bonus only up to 95%
2. Rolling bonus depends on mpr
3. Rolling bonus only affects exp
4. Nub is removed in its current form and replaced with rolling bonus that includes money rewards and free ba for the first 6 months
5. Ncb is removed in its current form and replaced with double rolling bonus but double ba cost
Whatcha people think? Did i miss out anything?
what would the max bonus be? what would the intervals be for ramping that bonus down, ba regen zones?
also, what kind of timeframe to get to that 95 percent if you started a brand new character today?

I don't like the idea of keeping the 6 months of extra money & free ba. I think it would still promote multis. Money would have to be included in the rolling bonus, and BA cost can roll as well.
The only version of the rolling bonus that I've seen that makes any sense was based on the idea that the bonus would only apply to bought BA (with increased cost).
Ranger has posted many ideas for a functional Rolling Bonus. They've all been dismissed and disregarded by the powers that be.
"Money would have to be included in the rolling bonus, and BA cost can roll as well."
Silly idea, I hope I don't have to say why.

Enough with the Rolling bonus crap, seriously. It's been brought up enough lately if Jon doesn't want to implent it then he doesn't have to.

^With what little input we've had, how can you assume he will never change his mind?

I'm just tired of hearing about it.

Its the only logical way to move forwards... Or do you look forward to seeing 1000% nub?
An idea that will never happen, because jon thinks it will promote laziness under CB ranks.

"An idea that will never happen, because jon thinks it will promote laziness under CB ranks."
How will it promote laziness? You still have to spend ba in order to take an advantage of it. Those who spend and buy and never miss any ba will grow faster than those that don't.
I still love the 10 minute BA refresh rate, it actually gave active users a better advantage over those that aren't as active.
I will never run another NCB, I see no way that I can possibly get much bigger than I am now. And personally I don't think any TRUE NUB is capable of catching up the top MPR, a multi NUB yes, cause they will come in from day one with a strategy and maximize their fighting, where as a TRUE NUB will waste a week or two figuring things out.
