Is there a penalty for fast rebirth

5 posts

 I've seen bits and pieces about penalties for rebirth under an hour but have been unable to track down specifics. Can anyone tell me what, if any, penalties there are? Also any other penalties I may not be aware of? Rebirth multiplier doesn't reach it's "full" value until an hour has passed. Before then, it increases (seemingly linearly) for each time increment (per second?) up to one hour. You can see it in action early in a rebirth when you can see your multiplier increasing relatively quickly even if you aren't killing gods/building monuments/training pets/completing achievements/gaining statistic multi. After one hour, the multiplier reaches it's full value based on these factors and will start to function "normally" (where it only increases when you do things that should normally increase it). There is a few /2 to rebirth multis under 1 hour: 60/30/15/12/10/8... minutes The only other thing you could call a penalty is being offline, general speed is reduced to 2/3 To clarify, there are both a continuous term and abrupt halving terms. So if you are over an hour you get 100% of the multiplier (there is actually also a small bonus for very long runs). If you're even just 1 second less than an hour, you get only 50% multipliers. So if you're almost at one hour, it's worth it to go for the full hour. If you're at, say, 48 minutes, you get 40% (because 48 minutes is 80% of an hour, and 80% of 50% is 40%). Likewise for any other number of minutes. If you're at exactly 30 minutes, you get 25% (half of 50%). But there's also a halving at 30 so if you're one second below 30 minutes, you're down to 12.5%. And so on and so forth. At 15 minutes you get 6.25%. One second less, and you get 3.125%. At 12 minutes you get 2.5%. A second less, 1.25%. OK, thanks for all that info. I needed a couple days to process it, lol. I think I got enough to be know what to follow in the game and see what it does.
