BA Regen prob (in General)


Ancient Anubis December 19 2009 11:26 AM EST

hey NS can u please look into the regen its the most annoying problem i find with cb at the moment. Now take tonight, at 8:11 i fought my way down to 82 ba by 8:15. That means by 12:20 i should have full ba of 160 at a regen of 6/20. Instead i have 137 that is a loss of 23. Now considering it is hard maintaining position and the affect missing so much ba can have on clan scores i would like to c how many people have this problem because i have had it for some time. Please fix the ba regen NS or Jon we deserve our full ba quota.

P.S. This only occurs when i am logged off and away from the site when i am on i never miss ba but i can't have this running 24/7 and i'm sure others are the same.

i see this happen occasionally when i do not have a tournament character, but when i am currently in a tournament it happens almost constantly. it seems to affect both the tourney character and the regular one.

i can't log off, but it does not happen when i am around and fighting the ba as it regens but only when i let the ba accrue for a bit.

Yea same thing happens to me. Right now I get 10 ba but sometimes i get a odd number of ba.

Its happened to me a couple of nights. I woke up to find much less BA than I should have had. It has also happened to me when I'm saving up BA for Wacky Exp. time, and it has really thrown me off!

This has been a problem for a long while. I'm trying to find a post I made about it where Jon basically said that if you're getting say 9 BA a refresh you're not guaranteed 9 BA - you could get 7 or 8. All that's guaranteed is that if you leave your BA to build up you'll end up with 160.

could you post a link please? Is it a code error or a game design?

I can't find the post, but it the following is in the game FAQ,

Q: Is it possible to get less BA than I normally would at refresh time?
A: Yes; when your BA is (re)loaded for various reasons you will get BA proportional to the amount of time passed; it is possible to get fractional amounts of the normal refresh rate this way.

Happens to me all the time in tourneys, I just never say anything.

it has been blamed on server restarts and partial ba but it should even out as said by the devs. what we are discussing here, or at least i was, is different. i will end up with about the right amount on my regular character and less than 160 on my tournament, which should have maxed out hours earlier.

In your case Dude it seems to be the problem that affects you if you run a smaller char while having a large one active.

Jon talks about in there. It seems to be a design not a bug.

The tournament BA regen separation fron non-t is a known issue and is separate from regen itself not working.

I get the random BA regen all the time, and I'm not in the tourneys. But I write it off to CB hating me and let it be. :P
