Idea to lower NUB sellouts (in General)
Cap their money at $10M, there is NO base item worth more, make them use it once they hit $10M, otherwise they won't gain money rewards. They can keep using money to buy/upgrade items, but once they hit $10M, they will no longer gain any money, just experience.
Once they exit their NUB, get rid of the $ cap.

Not a bad idea, if hiring minions wasn't so retarded. But, alas, as long as hiring a new minion IS retardedly expensive, this shouldn't be done.

Would this be per character or per account? I could see them bypassing this by putting 10 mil on spare characters they retire and unretire (or have unretired) when needed.
Per the NUB account, not character.

So they buy items with their money then do as Burton did.
Sell all their items and character and tattoo just after the NUB is over and sell out.
Instead of solving the problem, this is just a patch. Patches to problems suck as we see with other problems in CB land.

Why not just they have the NUB bonus until they earn their first 10mil and then the bonus goes to exp only?

10M is really not enough to catch older players.

Just get rid of the N*B already.

10M is a good start in the game, if I thought that any game I joined I'd be albe to catch players who'd been playing for years it'd kinda negate the point.

so what to do since NCB dont make money?..
Reg Chars got reduced 20% and NUBS are the only ones with CBD...????
I done spent 30m dollars and got less than nothing out of it..I need 30m more of nothing...
sorry but I starting to see NUB sellouts as cash into the game that otherwise is not there for the rest of us..I guess I need to start being kind to them..GAG cough choke spit whistle and hum
sooner or later we are all going to be so broke we are going to be forced to buy their CB if thats the way we want to approach this,or Jon just add CB dollars to special items list
sellouts for some odd reason is adding CBD into the game...
the selling out isnt the problem..
Its the rest of us that have the problem bec we stay

The guy plays a minimum of at least 5 hours a week for 6 months. That's a total of aproximatly 105 hours to get what? Max 100 usd. That's less then 1 usd per hours. So what's the problem when people are buying from them anyway.
And I really don't think someone is using the noob bonus only to make real money, and if he/she is, that person is the worst buisiness man in the world.
I think it's more because they had this cool bonus, then ﾰbamﾰ in one shot they don't get any money or exp anymore and they are not even near the top ten wich makes the game less interresting. They don't want to start a NCB cause that's another 6 months so they turn on the sell out option. Wich is totaly legal since it's been done buy hundreds of players the past five years. So why is it such a big problem now?

I have a better idea
tourney-style monetary restrictions
a rolling bonus, they could still catch up
damn I am smart
