buying ba (in New players)

reading the wiki it says you should get more to buy at midnight server time. if thats the case why didnt i get any last night? reading the wiki i found the server time appears to be est. am i wrong there?

Unappreciated Misnomer November 16 2012 3:43 PM EST

its midnight server time or shortly there after, currently its 3:43pm server time, my time zone its actually 4:43

ok thats about what i thought so then shouldnt i have gotten more ba to buy about 15-16 hours ago?

Zenai November 16 2012 4:24 PM EST

Server Time is Eastern Standard Time. Cache Flush is at 12am at which time BA Recycles and Can once again be bought.

Zenai November 16 2012 4:25 PM EST

Rephrase BA Recycles at 12am, Cache Flush is at 4am

ok so why am i not able to buy more ba then?

Zenai November 16 2012 4:42 PM EST

Are you translating to Server Time(EST)?

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 16 2012 4:48 PM EST

really? yes as stated above i thought server time was est. midnight est has already passed since yesterday. i did not recieve any new ba i could buy. i am 2 hours behind server time so i should have recieved some last night if i was still playing or there should have been some to buy this morning when i started playing 7am est.

So you're mountain time? Did you happen to buy BA after 10pm and not read the wiki until after that? That's my only explanation.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 16 2012 6:13 PM EST

Basically wait till 10pm tonight and see if you get your BA

Zenai November 16 2012 6:28 PM EST

Ok Let's Back track by Numbers then Have you fought EVERY fight you possibly could today? If so then you should only have 720 fights total at 12:01 Server time. If you have more than this (924) then you bought AFTER the recycle time for BA.

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 16 2012 6:30 PM EST

could it be cause i just started yesterday? also while reading the wiki i see you can build up 1600 ba to buy? does that mean if i do not buy it it will accumulate to 1600 i can buy or does that mean i can buy but not use it and accumulate it upto 1600?

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 16 2012 6:34 PM EST

i have been playing for aprox 24 hours now so i should have had my starting 300 i think it was plus 240 i could buy plus 720 accumulated plus and additional 240 i could have gotten at midnight.

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 16 2012 6:39 PM EST

atm i am about 300 shy of that. i didnt accumulate any points while i was above 160 and that was for a little while between fighting time and reading the wiki.

Zenai November 16 2012 6:56 PM EST

You can accumulate 1600 BA yes BUT this is truthfully best for New Character Bonus NOT New User Bonus accounts. You will lose a lot of potential experience by not fighting right now.

As far as the BA we will just have to see since it is a work in progress from our side. If an Admin got involved though this could be settled immediately.....lol

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 16 2012 6:56 PM EST

Ok 160 is the max ba you can automatically stock up to before it will stop regenerating based on your X/20 (you're in 10/20 so you regen 10 BA every 20 minutes), you can buy BA and store up to 1600 ba (only good for NCB runs only really) but like I said earlier you wont automatically regen BA every 20 minutes once you hit 160.

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 16 2012 6:58 PM EST

i was just curious im trying to use them up asap now. thanks for the help :)

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 16 2012 6:59 PM EST

ahh i see thats what the 1600 store up is good for. i was wondering why anyone would want to do that.

Zenai November 17 2012 12:11 AM EST

Well 930 Fights so you bought BA after midnight server time.

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 17 2012 12:26 AM EST

pretty sure something doesnt add up somewhere since i should ha e had 300 starting + 240 starting to buy + 240 at midnight + 720 for a day + a little more since its been sligbtly longer then 4 2 err 24 hours which would put me around 1540. and im at 1300 looks like im missing 240.

laz [Brew Crew Forging Service] November 17 2012 12:34 AM EST

and im pretty sure i didnt stay at +160 for 8 or so hours

Zenai November 17 2012 6:07 AM EST

laz yes you are missing 240 that means you did not get to buy your BA until after Midnight. This is not a new phenomenon, we have all had it happen before. Timing it so close to the recycle time that we were actually over instead of under even if by only a few seconds. Lesson to be learned try to get to it 15 minutes ahead of time instead of right at the recycle time.
