So far there are numerous stories going around about how much XP is required for certain ranks. I would like for someone to list the XP requirements going all the way up to "General". I know there are several out there who would like to have a once-and-for-all listing of the marks they are shooting for. Anyone who can provide that...and also be 100% certain in what they are saying...would be greatly appreciated.

I heard from the official strategy guide that General is 1 million exp. :(

Ridiculous.

I heard this as well. I hope it's not true...but that was why I put this thread up...because so many of us out there are wanting to have a definite, factual listing. I know that we can't use scans of the copyrighted guide pages, etc...but surely there is solid, factual info out there that someone can provide.

Thanks alot Killjoy,...but if you could, would you mind listing the rank titles out beside the XP amounts. We would all greatly appreciate it.

Okay so that makes more sense then, looks like the 1 Mil is the 4th General Rank aka 4-Star General. So this is gonna take forever even boosting :( btw thanks Killjoy for the ranks

I'm assuming you're talking about having the game itself...right?

"General" by friday would be something of mythological proportions...:p

Well thats what i do. Im 1/10 of the way there and I have not even played 5hours.

That's still 50 hours for the achievement, and you have 100K in less than 5 hours? That's like 20K every hour.

Lol. This is why I'll never be known for having an amazing account. I can't be bothered to boost all day like A 2rue Beast for every multiplayer game. That's just stupid. If you get the achievement by Friday you really need a more constructive hobby. I understand playing games, but that's a bit excessive.

Im starting to go off online achievements now. Im getting fed up with the crazy one like Far Cry 2 gave up on there in the end.

No dude, you don't understand. I know someone who boosted a match to see how much exp he could get. (it was a 15 minute match on armor front i think) and you can get up to 1000 exp per match, or if you had everyone(both teams) working together, it would be 2000 and thats just a fifteen minute match. if you did what he did (boosting) you would still have to do 125 hours (if 2000 per match) or 250 hours (1000). So (not trying to be mean here) if your life is that sad then yeah you could do it before friday.

This is insane. Before I looked I thought I might be able to make it half way through the ranks. Doesn't look like I'll even be doing that now. I'll likely pick up my play for 8 hours achievement along with the few others and that will be it. I'm not even going to bother trying for the higher ranks. This would take a long time in the Call of Duty world where there is a healthy online community. Good luck getting this in a month when nobody is playing it.

The smartest thing Monolith could do...since they want to copy so many other games...is have an exponential XP week...not just a weekend. It should be 10X so this could be done in a reasonable timeframe. I'm sure it won't happen though for the following reasons...

#1. they probably think they did something super cool by setting those high marks...developers egos are stratospheric

#2. there is no doubt they are saving maps and MP modes for paid-for DLC, which they think will extend the MP lifespan...but so many are up in arms with this insane XP system that I doubt people will stick around long enough to care...much less actually pay for it

*on a side note...even if Monolith wanted to give away the DLC...Microsoft wouldn't let them...they have become so against that...and so in favor of charging for every single shred of content that it will certainly negatively impact a game like this...and many others in the future...

Perfect examples of this are Fable 2's Knothole Island...and SW:The Force Unleashed. Both DLC packs were fun...but neither of them were worth $10...PERIOD, END OF STORY!!!
