Please Help Admin types: unretire (in General)

So I had a team called NCB Item Holders. They were holding all my stuff that i'm going to use for my first NCB.

This team disappeared along with all thier stuff.

Please bring them back.

I guess technically they are retired, but i don't want them to be.

Wraithlin March 1 2010 4:34 AM EST

And this is actually the second time they just ran off and retired themselves, anyone know why this is happening?

Long known "issue" It's because of Score/PR.

A storage char can be made and hold your items by creating the character but not creating any minions...this will allow 10 weapons and 10 armour (I think). Then you will not have it auto retire on you when someone farms your character score lower then your pr.

It's not an "issue", but rather a feature.

If you're going to store material on another character then don't hire any minions. If you must hire minions then keep your team healthy regarding score/PR ratio and you won't need to un-retire your character.

Minion in question is;

Score 44
Power 152
MPR 19

So is the breakpoint for Auto Retire having a score 30% of your PR?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 1 2010 5:30 AM EST

Back to my other issue, Eremite has a worse Ratio;

Score 564,992
Power 2,123,964
MPR 2,084,840

That's aobut 27%, lower than NCB Item Holders.

Why was one retired, and the other not?

Can we get a checkbox to not allow teams to auto-retire?

I bought actually all four minions on that team so that I can organize the gear i'm saving up better and actually put it with the minions that will eventually get it for the NCB. The only people that would attack me will level past me in 5-10 fights, I don't think it's unbalanced to allow the team to never retire.

Maybe make the checkbox unavailable if the team trains any Exp?

AdminShade March 1 2010 10:28 AM EST

I do not think we will introduce a fix for a feature which is not a bug at all. If we introduce a check box not to auto-retire a character, wouldn't we then all check that box?
Score: 44 / PR: 152

Are you sure new people will pass your character easily? Remember that when fighting you 99% of them will not have the fancy items you have.

The easiest fix for this is to wait a few days if this character was retired very recently (as in since yesterday) or pay 50k to Tourney Prizes and have an admin unretire the character.

On a side note: I've changed your thread title a bit.

Wraithlin March 1 2010 12:13 PM EST

I didn't say beat my character, I said pass my character. And that should happen in the first hour of playing.

Also, if you make the box unavailable to anyone who has trained Exp then no, we wouldn't all check it.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 1 2010 1:30 PM EST

Shade, what's the auto retire point? Why has NCB Item Holder been retired, but Eremite hasn't?

AdminG Beee March 1 2010 1:52 PM EST

Auto retire ratio is seemingly subject to change.


smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] March 1 2010 6:45 PM EST

If we would all check that "box", then what is the point of having a feature noone wants? *No one* wants.
