Drop Volley Profit Drop Volley Profit, or DVP for short, is hiring a tutor back and forth with another player to make money. Therefore it requires two players: DVP giver and DVP receiver. But how is it different from volleying? While both volley and DVP involve hiring a tutor multiple times, the objective of volleying is to bump a tutor to a certain value, whereas the objective of a DVP is for the DVP Receiver to earn the agreed upon profit. Here's how it works : Step 1: Find a tutor to volley. You can find a tutor using the Tutor Tab or the DVP giver can tell you the username of a tutor and you can find it using the Meet People tab, as shown below: Step 2: Hire the tutor. Hire the tutor by clicking on Hire as shown below: After each hire, the hire value rises by 5% of the last hire value. Therefore, the value of the tutor increases from $1,000 to $1,050 after one hire (5% of $1,000) as shown below: Step 3: The other player hires the tutor away from you. The DVP giver will hire the tutor away from you. Every time a tutor is hired away, you make a profit of 1.58%(approx) of the hire value at which you hired the tutor, as shown below: Note how it's 1.58% of $1,000(the value you hired the tutor at) and not the current hire value. It's beneficial to have a decent amount of cash on hand before you start the DVP because you need to volley a tutor to 6x the hire value of the desired profit you wish to gain since the hire value rises more than what you gain. Why? Because you make 1.58% profit every alternate hire i.e. every 5% + 5% increase, which is approximately 6 times. For example, if you are looking for a 10b DVP, you will have to volley a tutor to 60b. Step 4: Repeat until you gain the agreed upon money. Keep hiring back and forth until you earn the agreed upon amount of cash. The most common items that are traded for DVP are chibis and bentos. A chibi usually sells for 1-2b DVP and a bento sells for 60-80b DVP (prices vary from player to player). After the DVP is done, the DVP giver may keep the tutor, get a tutor strip or drop the tutor. Tutor strip is paying someone to hire a tutor from you in exchange for items. The most common items traded for tutor strips (TS) are bentos, which usually sell for 300-400b ts each (prices vary). Dropping a tutor refunds you 57.14% of the current hire value of the tutor, or 60% of the value at which you last hired the tutor, as shown below: As shown, you get a refund of $660 for a current hire value of $1,157, i.e 57.14%. Once the tutor is dropped, the hire value of the tutor falls to 75%(approx) of the hire value at which it was dropped. The hire value starts declining after 6 days again, and then continues to fall every 3 days at 25% until the tutor is hired again, or its hire value reaches $1000. No tutor can be dropped if its hire value is $1000 or below. Link to the old Guide to Drop Volley The end. Hope this helps.
