Done, it's easy... old players can compete with top 10 players...
Unfortunately the NCB is prohibitively expensive but for a very few players.
It is too expensive I would not even try one, if my goal was to get to the top.
The time needed for a successful NCB is also quite burdensome.
I completely realize the rationale behind the highly elevated BA costs, but at some point we need to think, as a community, if it is better to keep it high for the sake of realism vs letting older players have a break and have a chance at the top.
Remember old players with a NCB only have xp benefit. NUBs still have the money and xp benefit along with free BA.
I personally, in the absence of a Rolling Bonus, would like to see the BA costs for a NCB be cut at least by a factor of 3.
It would still be a negative sum equation, however, it would give non-USD players a chance to run a top level character.
Which can only make the game more fun for everyone.
I do realize my suggestion is not fair to NWO, however I hope he understands my thoughts.
