Just an Idea for NCB (in General)
Imagine changing the new character bonus to a lump sump up front. People would go MAD! The trick would be to give the play the correct amount of BA that would be equivalent to six months of BA. You cannot give them six months at 10/20 or 6/20 that is unfair. There is about 12,960 BA regeneration cycles within a six month(assuming 30 day month). Would this break the game for a day with only one user doing an new character probably. Could they burn anywheres from 78k BA to 129k BA I would like to see them try.
NCB is such a dead horse, I would not give this kind of love to a NUB. This would definitely be a veteran supportship perk.
Supporter perk would be nice, haven't seen anything new supporter wise in a very long time.
Now there is a way to get player from back when to stop in once in a while.
I would think you would have to limit some.
Would there be a cost?
You have considered the generated ba, but what about the amount that can be purchased?
Do not forget when you got near the top things would turn painfully slow.
sounds interesting at least
I think the smart player would not use it in a rush. Without missing ba regeneration to maximize growth they can still go out and love live under the sun all week maybe log in for a brief time to arrange gear from players and scout/plan for targets for each wacky exp times. The whole purchase extra ba would have to be some sort of allotment with a final price tag & it's still going to be expensive. This would not necessarily make an ncb easier because you still only have 6 months.
It would certainly liven things up, I'd run a NCB were there a change to it. I would prefer that change be a reduced price for purchasable BA though.
the problem with this is obviously the amount of BA which could be used in extra xp time.
I vaguely remember majestic moose saved about 12k ba and used it in a day. Before it was capped a few others saved up for starting NCBs, I think Nightstrike did it.
