It will probably be the last update of the game (and the first in ages) but still trash
I don't think there are too many new players in the game. On the other hand, it's not good that someone who has only been playing for a few months (player on level 130) is almost equivalent to someone who has been playing for many years (player on level 180).Leaving the XP curve as it is and raising the level cap without cutting off excess XP will completely kill the "influx" of new players to older worlds.
The daily login bonus is a huge factor in higher level regions and its influence will only increase the more XP are needed to level up. How the fuck should you ever be able to compete in PvP as a late starter when there are players who already have 200+ million XP and shoot up straight to the next maximum level ?
Right now, leveling up to ~130 is pretty quick and at that point you can hold your own in FFs and duels. But now imagine a level 130 shooting on a level 180 with an upgraded Cortina set. You can bet that the "low" level player isn´t gonna sign up for the next battle.
Keeping the game somewhat attractive for newcomers is a key factor in keeping the game alive.
If new players are immediately demotivated when starting out the player count will decrease even faster. No matter how the raise of the maximal level cap is implemented I can only stress the importance to keep the game motivating also for people who are just starting out or who are coming back from a break.
Hopefully InnoGames doesn´t just choose the lazy way and set max level to like 200 so they are done for a couple of years without changing anything else.
My guess is that it is indeed the latter and I will, of course, pass on your suggestion.@Al35ul CM With the level cap increase, would the existing sets be capped at level 150, or will they continue to get stronger with more levels?
If it's the latter, could you suggest capping them at level 150, so they don't keep getting stronger with more levels?
Mainly concerned about mitigating further damage to the games PvP.
Level 250 - 1. 461.638.955 experience. Just for the correction.With the actual geometric ratio they look like this :
level 180 - 125M
level 190 - 175M
level 200 - 240M
level 210 - 315M
level 220 - 395M
level 230 - 490M
level 240 - 595M
level 250 - 720M
I hope it rises better.
