Wesbec Bonus 2016 + Hauling Contest

Post by Blythe »

I offer a bonus to all freight haulers who haul loads originating from my settlements in Descarte (Weyland Yutani Corp) and Hexham (Tyne's Crossing) in the Sphere Galaxy. The bonus is based on the income that I earn from each load. To be clear, a “load” is an individual Wesbec contract. So, depending on your cargo space, you should be able to haul several “loads” per trip.

All loads pay a minimum 5% bonus
If you haul at least 20 loads a month, the bonus is 15%
If you haul at least 50 loads a month, the bonus is 20%
If you haul at least 100 loads a month, the bonus is 25%

Bonuses are calculated and paid and the number of loads run is reset each calendar month.

So this part is NOT a contest. You earn a bonus regardless of how much you haul and regardless of how much others haul. How big your bonus is depends on how much you haul. There absolutely no limit, you can make as much as you want. Our top hauler in the last half of 2015 earned 1,849,941 cr in bonuses alone. (Congratulations Sparky!) This is above and beyond his earnings through Wesbec and doesn't include his contest winnings (see below).

However, I do hold a contest that runs every 6 months starting Jan 1 and then starts over. Awards will be limited to the top performers within the program. The top 5 haulers (by total bonus) at the end of six months will receive an additional 10% for all loads run since the beginning of the contest. The top hauler (by total bonus) will be awarded a special prize commensurate with the popularity of the program, but not less than 1,000,000 cr. It could be a lot more.

So stop by Hexham or Descarte, pick up some freight and start earning you bonuses today! If you have questions about this program, feel free to PM me. Updates to the current contest will be posted here each month.

The bonus system works for me. I don't really try for top hauler [which is a nice extra] but i always try and pick up if i'm in the location of your sets. Any extra help in game with credits is helpful and nice.

Unsurprisingly I think the current system works fine.
