The reward system in High Noon is based on a chess ranking system. This means that the higher your reward goes the harder it is to keep increasing it. At a relatively high reward for your level there is a chance that you will not increase your reward even if you win a duel. You'll notice that as you increase your level, this reward soft cap will get higher, too.
The reward you get is calculated based on the difference between your opponent's ranking and your own. If you have a reward very similar to your opponents, and you win a duel, it's unlikely that you'll see a whole point reward increase. Likewise, if you defeat an opponent with a much higher reward than yours, you're likely to get many points towards your own reward.
Sometimes players wonder about why they don't get +1/-1 for duels instead of a calculated result. A player on our Forums put it this way:
If you got one for a win and lose one for a loss this is what would happen:
What this shows, both players are equally skilled as they both win 2/3 duels. however, one player's reward is much higher than the others because he happens to play more! Reward is a show of skill.The higher your reward is, the Better you are at the game.
Running from the fight is the same as a loss.
There is no penalty for not playing High Noon. When you're done with your break, simply log back into the game and you'll be right back where you were when you left.
If you're ranked in the Worldwide Top 50, you'll need to have at least 30 wildcat duels each week to remain visible to other players through the in-game rankings.

For all players: The higher of the two rewards before the duel will be used to calculate the reward change to both players after the duel.

The reward penalty is calculated based on your reward at the start of the duel:
When you purchase the BHL you will be entitled to double the bounty reward for any duel. You will also get double the level experience and double returns for any event.
When you purchase a safe it will always display one number less than the total.
For example: If you purchase a 10 day safe, the counter starts at 10x24 hours = 240 hours... which is 10d, but then immediately you will have 239:59:59 (hr:min:sec) which the system interprets as 9 days.
The buffalo rifle requires you to zoom all the way in on your scope before you can fire. This is different from the way the rifle works, and we may change it in the future.
The shotgun has a "maximum rate of fire" that prevents you from shooting too quickly, to limits its power; when you try to shoot too quickly it'll just click.
