Mini Marathon Challenge (in Contests)

Bounty Hunter December 31 2012 12:13 PM EST

I would like to suggest a new challenge and contest. Basically I suggest we change the BA/Reward mechanics for a week using our normal characters. During the challenge week BA refresh rate would be every 10 minutes! Reward mechanics would add a 100% bonus line and add the same way our current clan/challenge/N*B system works.

We could then offer some prizes which are up for suggestion as to amounts and categories. But the main idea is to see who can burn the most BA without missing.

Now I know this is something we could try with a typical CB tournament buy I suggest that by using our normal characters and adding the bonus we should get ALOT of involvement and enthusiasm from our players.

Please post here if interested and have any positive suggestions or ideas to add to this type of challenge. Lets face it we are all exp junkies what a better way to put it to the test :)

A Full Week might be a bit much but just the Idea of having a Mega Wacky Experience Time Appeals to me!

Having something permanent to apply to my char is awesome! Don't get me wrong Tournies are great too but seriously not much comes from them other than a minimal prize or some garnered knowledge and bragging rights.

Changing the ba rate is easy. Adding the bonus, while easy to code, screws with game balance and mechanics.

Maybe just a 72 hour challenge would be in order than. That cant mess with game balance that significantly while still offering some nice exp gains for participating. We could call it Nightstrkes Wacky Weekend ;-)

Well on a 72 ?Hour Schedule there is a way to make it seem like a Week long thing.....Do it on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This would Sandwich the Regular Wacky Exp Times :-)

Good point Z but my main focus is to get involvement and most people have more time on the weekend without work and school. And when i say most people i dont mean myself I work the weekends at least most of them.
