i see the 48 hour countdown timer there, has anyone ever beat it?

 

is there a reward or medal for outlasting the bounty - what happens to the cash if nobody completes

 

just curious - my strategy and advice was always just to get naked and get it over with

I don't think a bounty has ever "timed out" but I could be wrong.

luisspamer has done so multiple times, see his bio.

 

The reward is lost to the game.

BB has been beat numerous times over the years, it's actually quite common.

 

The reward set for a bounty, whether it's gold or fsp is sunk IF said bounty expires.

 

Should there be a Medal/Reward attained for beating the BB,well yeah but it will never happen.

I've done it and seen several others do it as well.  You don't get anything special for it but I think you should.  We get medals for lots of other things, why not that too?

I've done it once... Why there isn't a reward or penalty on the one who put it up is beyond me. It's quite unreasonable maybe a bounty should be 12 hours TBH.

Personally i do not think anything over 12 hours is healthy... People need sleep sometime ya know. 4-12 hour scale with scaling price :).

these days it rare to see one go over 24 hrs ,only reason that is cause they have gone nuts on pots potions and other stuff from the crazy ladder potions and epics potions which are floating around in the game ,not doing it to dodge the bounty they are doing it cause they are on the top of ladder and want to stay there/

 

  But dodge the bounty they do cause its not worth the effort to go out and get the pots ,potions buffs and other stuff to hit them 

 

im thinking maybe 4 or 5 options as to how long its on there 

 

as we all know 99.9 % of all bounties will be cleared within first 4 hrs anyway

 

people will complain about it not being long enough (you will still get those 9 hits in in those 4hrs )

 

maybe 4 8 12 24 48  would be ok ???

Sorry, but if we talking about adding medals to outlasting the BB, I don't think anything less than 24 hours is worthy of a medal.  Getting a medal for surviving would liven up the BB though.  People hitting in hopes of getting bountied so they can get a new medal.  People trying to earn their bounty hunting medal would have to earn it against people that don't want to be cleared.

i agree with you on that ,but myself wasnt even thinking about medals ,just think 48 hrs is too long  ,but if there is to be a medal yes no less than 24 hrs

just had another thought (yep it hurt my head ),what  if there was an incentive for people to post bounties ,instead of them ignoring the hit cause of " D Q ",soft people soft 

 

Not sure what it would be ,but anything to get them posting the hits again

The biggest fix for prestige trading, etc. would be to make the prestige gained relative to stam used for the hit.  1 prestige point per 10 stam used.  Add this and people will have to decide how much that prestige is worth.  People getting 100 stammed for prestige aren't as likely to let it go so that would add more activity to the BB.

that's fair enough imo, we won't be going back to the time when normal hits counted for smasher medal lol but this is next best and more reasonable

I could get behind that myself I think.
