I used increasing multiplicative difference between numbers.
If it is primes, then where is 13 or 17?
August 27 2009 1:40 AM EDT
I am going to bed if i was right (which i doubt)...it was a guess and felt right.
Other option is 41:
two patterns, digit separates:
1 - 2 - 3 3 - 4 4 4
start with 1, next sequence is n+1 repeated n times.
'2' is n+1 repeated n times when n is 1
'3 3' is n+1 repeated n times when n is 2
So the first digit is 4
The second digit follows the pattern:
1 x 1 x 1 x
So the next number is a 1
This leaves 41
August 27 2009 1:51 AM EDT
It's not a "next number" puzzle.
August 27 2009 1:52 AM EDT
I used the guessing method.
all 3 are numbers which end at 1.
all 3 numbers have another number in between while 43 is at the end.
so I guessed 51.
August 27 2009 1:55 AM EDT
Novice, that's so awesome that I wish it were the answer!
But it's not.
rats, I thought Google had once again saved me from death by ignorance
I still cant think of anything but... If you do all the right (math stuff) in all the right places it comes to bacony chili cheese potato wedges ;P
(this shows about where the math teachers lost my attention)
August 27 2009 2:02 AM EDT
61 is the next number in the sequence.
Numbers are odd, composite numbers, and are also prime. They fall into the category of being Carmichael Numbers.

Novice is on the trail.

48 - they are the ages of your children :)

August 27 2009 5:07 AM EDT
the differences between the numbers are:
August 27 2009 5:14 AM EDT
wow did I fail.
the differences are actually
when you add those you get 32, which is the average of the 6 numbers.
1st answer: 52
2nd answer: 32
3rd answer: 645069359
4th answer: 254.839

Your portion of the National Deficit? >.>

This has something to do with the Aztec/Mayan Calendar. I've seen this pattern before:
My High School History teacher had the class do their Birthdays :)
August 27 2009 6:43 AM EDT
By the way if you want to go more in depth there is a further Link at the bottom of that page that tells of important Mayan/Aztec Calendar days as well :)

Again, the answer is not a "pick the next number in the series" thing.
The set of numbers is what matters. What's the significance of the number set?
This is specific to CB, by the way.
August 27 2009 1:24 PM EDT
the average times in the past days that cache flush was finished?
August 27 2009 1:39 PM EDT
If you'll give a hint, is this related to YOUR character?
August 27 2009 1:43 PM EDT
Yes, but it relates to many, many other CB players as well.
August 27 2009 2:40 PM EDT
The RPM percentages of your forging work?
August 27 2009 2:51 PM EDT
I am in the 8 BA category, which affects the amount of BA that I can buy.
August 27 2009 3:14 PM EDT
Ahh yes @ 8/20 the amount of BA you can buy per day is 192
is either a break down of the total for this number or the increments in which you bought you BA for s Specific purpose like Positive CPs or Forging.
August 27 2009 3:19 PM EDT
the last digits of prices of your BA?
August 27 2009 3:19 PM EDT
or the increment into which you bought/burned for training purposes
August 27 2009 5:16 PM EDT
August 27 2009 5:26 PM EDT
The challenge bonus for the 6 people on your fight list.
Or the challenge bonus your getting from one person for 6 different time periods.

August 27 2009 7:32 PM EDT
Zenai has the first part of the answer. These are the increments in which I buy 192 of BA per day.
The second part of the answer is why I buy in these particular sets. It has nothing to do with strategy or game play, but has to do with me being a bit of a numbers freak.
August 27 2009 7:35 PM EDT
I'll post the answer at midnight, server time, if no one has it by then.
You regularly log in six times per day, and that's the only set of six distinct prime numbers which sum to 192.

Congrats, and thanks to all who played.
I'll post another one soon. I love number sets, and have quite a few things in my CB gameplay that relate to significant numbers.
I'd prefer if it involved 42.
August 27 2009 7:45 PM EDT
yeah, because that particular meme is totally not played out.
You can't "play out" (as you so very quaintly call it) THGTTG. ;)
August 27 2009 7:53 PM EDT
Argh, I would never have guessed that. Oh well, two good things came from this contest. I had fun spending a couple of minutes trying to figure out the correlation, and now we can finally get you the help you need.
Here you go, Mex
