Thread: We Need More Ways To Earn AP...
Post by: Bret Hart(73101)

I am a member that donated and I get 2 AP per 10 minutes. I hardly have anything to play with and go higher (Especially when I lose one of the few matches, I get each day.) So what I'm wondering is if there can be more ways to get AP without spending an additional $30? Maybe have it where we can click on ad banners or something. Maybe give donating players 1 AP per minute and non-paying 1 AP per 2 minutes. I don't know, but please come up with something... I am at the point of considering quitting already, just because it's so frustrating. Thanks for listening.

Please don't take me wrong, I certainly do not mean to complain... It's just so hard, especially when it's so easy to take injuries and you have to use the AP to heal and etc.

From you're posts it looks like you don't know of Bonus Votes, in the top left of the screen there is a link called "Bonus ap(Votes)". Click on it and it will give you a list of sites, click on each link and vote for VOW and you will recieve 5 bonus ap, depending on the site depends on how often you can vote, there are two that are once every hour and afew that are once a day.

I do know of that, but the problem is most of the time I use all my bonus votes for healing. :(

The it's a problem with who you fight, I don't donate but I can get about 5 matches in in a day even though my con is 102(Although most of my matches don't go more that 65 con damage). Be a bit more selective and don't fight people who you know that you have very little chance against. Or you could always fight people who have high sub wins then you can tell that most of the time matches will finish early. :P

Yeah, but can you explain how I fought a law with injured con and mine at full and not only did he win... he injured me? I don't know, but it's discouraging.

You donate and I don't. We both vote for 200 Ap. You get 2 per 10, I get 1 per 10. You have no maximum level, I have one at 500. I have enough Ap per day to fight a few matches, included with some nice injuries and KO's with 130+ Con.

So I don't see what your problem is. If you really don't have enough Ap with Donation and 200 bonus, then donate for a lump sum of Ap.

Really, if you were around when some of us were, you only could get half of that bonus Ap. It got upped, and there have been various celebration times and rewards for ranks on voting.

If you haven't learned already, always try to heal with at least 100/$1000 it keeps from you getting those 0's. But injuries, I spend a few thousand a day usually.

Many non-donaters are doing really good with the ap were getting.
Myself, Mistah Speedles, Wiking, Dirty Old Man and many more are close to retiring and we never donated.
I dont think any of us are complaining about how quick we get our ap

I think the way we get ap is fine

Ok am I missing something? Obviously I am. I need more tips, I am a noob. Please send me an e-mail on how to better manage my AP and get the most money out of it. Thanks... sorry, I don't mean to cause any trouble, but I get frustrated (I'm seeing now that it's probably because I'm doing something wrong.)

Fight mainly singles, and don't pick people way out of your range even if it is good money. This is the most basic of the rules. Even if you do this, you will have matches with bad turnouts, it happens.

Don't join all the tournaments. Stick to one or two. When you get better, add a tourney if you want.

Heal injuries with at least 100 ap and $1000, no less than 60 and 600 if you really need it. This prevents from getting a bunch of 0's and losing a lot more Ap and money.

If you don't have a lot of moves in one area, maybe just one or two, leave those at minimum till you get more moves in that area. You will save a lot of money and ap from this.

Those are some of the biggest mistakes made when starting out. That's all I can think of off the top of my head. If you have any questions, ask them here or msg me in game 5161 and I will get back to you when I can.

How changing the ap to: non paying 2 ap per 10 ap, paying 4 ap per 10. This would increase the ap to allow more matches, but not too much that the game becomes boring. The game get boring too when you don't have ap to play with. Not all of us have the time required to vote enough to get the full 200. Usually on just once a day, which allow for only about 50 to 100 extra ap. I like cage matches, and don't want to fight in just singles. This would allow for more diversity instead of a bunch of higher(pwo, sswo) people who just want singles because of ap concerns.

Why would you want more ap?

I still don't see how getting 1ap every 10 mins which obviously = 6 ap an hour.

6 * 24 = 144
144 + up to 200 bonus ap = up to 344 ap.

Seneca, I don't really understand your point. Singles matches are the smartest to fight anyway. You get the same amount of fame/experience for winning any style of match, so why would you want to use more ap/money for healing from a cage/ladder match? Sure, you get more money either way (win or lose), but you spend a heck of a lot more on injuries.

With singles, you can fight at least two or three matches a day and make a decent amount of money. With cages, you can only fight one or two matches a day. You might make more money, but you won't make more experience.

The ap concerns will still be there. It's just that the upper PWO/SSWO (which there really aren't that many of anyway) will fight more singles to advance them farther up the chain in fame/exp.

My thoughts are kinda jumbled, may come back and edit it when i'm thinking more clearly.

Hey!!! I only almost failed because I didnt listen in class at all...but when i actually tried and studied I got a C+ on the exam I think o.O

With that 344 ap a day or whatever, if you fight matches with 2,0,0 you shouldnt get many injuries which should let you fight like at least 3-4 matches a day

Cages are more stable than single. I don't like it when you beat a person to a pulp and they walk with a win. It happens alot more with singles than other matches. You get more money per ap with cages if you do it right. Besides singles are so uncool.

What do you guys get for cages down there. Still like 300-600 for a win? I make that in a singles and I won't be injured quite as much or take as much con damage. What you will later realize is that injuries are not fun.

Ap for money isn't really in favor of cages in the long run, trust me on that. Plus in the end, it is all about getting move prices down, so singles does help better that way.
