BA refresh rate (in General)


Armando June 30 8:25 AM EDT

Any chance we can change the amount of time it takes to refresh BA. 20 mins for 10 BA means I only get to fight every 5 hrs. I'm sure most of you have the same thing but why not make this game a little more active?

The hard part is, it's hard to please everyone. There are some people who think fighting that often is too much, and that it's hard to spend that much BA.

Couldn't we do a poll and see if there is a middle ground for people maybe instead of 20 mins its 15 mins or something like that. Just make a polls with like 4 different options and have people vote and then discuss things from there?

I would agree with you Armando but I also see titans point. Alas, without a developer or someone with access and knowledge of coding, it won't matter anyway. We could poll and poll away with no result. Trust me, we've tried.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] June 30 1:33 PM EDT

Yes, we have done polls. In fact the last time one was done, people said they preferred the current refresh rate.

Granted that's from like 6 years ago. I could put up another one if there was enough interest.

If we did get enough people that wanted to get it change is it something that is possible to get done?

When I first started, the BA refresh rate was twice as much and the cap was 360 (or maybe 320?). At the time, I didn't think that was enough. Now, I feel like I have to burn soooo much BA, even while sitting at 6/20.

Spend all your BA every day for 3 months and then see if you still want to change it. Also, Tournies are a good way to get the "I need to use more BA" fix. Bugging a few admins could probably get you one going in a relatively short amount of time.

Wouldn't you get tired of not getting enough sleep...? See what I did there? :D

I was planning on doing one soon.

Armando June 30 3:28 PM EDT

I liked when the cap was around 300. For me it made me feel more active in the game. I can see why that could be unappealing to some though.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] June 30 6:39 PM EDT

I could see it going back to 300 if we had more people, but currently there just aren't that many targets, especially higher up and if you are focusing only clan members.

Think it would be more beneficial to get a developer again (Ha!) which could get changes flowing and ideas rollings. This would probably give the game a more active feel + lure more people into the game which would in turn get more forums posts and people in chat.

Making people click twice as much probably wouldn't increase "activity".

I've suggested before that we setup a system where people are able to choose their own BA regen rates. This would be where the higher rates would come with a difficulty bonus whereas the lower rates would enable someone to go longer periods of time without playing and losing BA.

sadly, you can suggest all the changes you want, no one is going to implement them... ;8^(

Armando July 1 7:53 AM EDT

Are not gonna be able to be implemented because we don't have someone to code it or is there no access to the code?

Also I like the idea of being able to choose your BA regen rate although there would have to be someone way to maintain balance
