I took a pic of the X4 screen if no one else can see it later lol.

And yeah even a terrible conquest round with only 3000 XP will be 12,000 lol

And Deathr0t yeah we should do, I already have the round 15 achievement, I can help you out though. I still need to spend 25k points and I need that shoot 3 enemies whilst downed.

As someone who went Prime last weekend when they had their unannounced 2x XP weekend, I can give you one word....Conquest. If you notice on normal days, most players online are playing Team Deathmatch followed by Conquest. Well during bonus weekends this is reversed and most people are playing Conquest mode because it is the most consistent way to benefit from a double XP weekend. And just like someone wrote above, normally you get 150 for capturing a point (300 on 2x XP), but this upcoming weekend you'll get 600 for each point. That's hella crazy XP.

Of course on this website, people will want to hook up and get a boosting party going right? Well, it is a pain in the ace trying to get together 10 people with mics that will agree to boost for an entire game and very hard to try to organize one (the private match option doesn't work here btw). As I said, I went Prime last weekend, but overall 90%-95% was playing legit Conquest and the rest boosting b/c it is just so hard to maintain a boosting party of ten people with mics. Oh, and here's a little bit of advice found out the hard way...when trying to get together a boosting party, only start searching for available games when you have EXACTLY 5 people. This gives you the best chance of landing your own lobby (4 will be thrown into an existing game and 6 or more doesn't always work). Then once you have your own game lobby, send out FAST game invites to people who have already agreed to boost with you (and will be waiting on the invites to join up), otherwise individual players will join up (usually without mics) and will throw a big monkey-bot wrench into the whole boosting game. I've easily wasted more time trying to set up boosting matches then actually playing in them.

So, what was the question again? Oh yeah. My advice is to not mess with boosting unless you happen to have an invite fall in your lap...they're too hard to maintain for multiple games (hats off if you can). Just play lots of Conquest and focus on capturing points. Don't worry about defending them and going out of your way to get kills. If you see a capture point being taken, let them take it. And then send a grenade their way followed by a quick death. Oh Scrapmaker, how do I love thee...let me count the ways...and dead Transformers.

PS - I'll be playing throughout this weekend as well catching me some 4x XP goodness. So maybe I'll see you all out there as I try to build all 4 classes back up to level 25 (just in case they later come up with a double Prime mode!). My gamertag is the same as on here. 'TIL ALL ARE ONE!!!

PPS - Sorry if I ramble on too much. It usually takes a lot to distract me....WOW! A blue car!

Is this really real cuz I am gonne be gutted if its not. can anyone confirm 100% as if they can I just may wet myself lol

Must admit I usually get a boosting invite while I am playing. They never happen when iorganised on here but sooner or later you should get an invite if you stay on long enough : - )

True on the last comment. Think about it...Even if you aren't boosting (which IMO is kind of boring and not very fun) you will get a MINIMUM of 12000 xp per round and thats if you do god aweful. I'm expecting to average 16000-20000 per round this weekend which means it should only take me 30 rounds tops to get the last 22 levels I need.

Last weekend during double XP, we were raking in between 5-10k XP in Power Struggle per match.

I'm up for boosting this weekend. Send me a message on LIVE. GT: DISTURBDrainman I'll be on Friday night. If we can't find 10 total to boost, we can use 5 and go from capture point to capture point getting as many points as possible. This usually works better for me, seeing as it takes forever to get a party together, then get them all in a match to have a few people quit after a few matches.

What time does it start and do I need to switch off and on again to get it at that time. So frustrating. When I log in on Saturday I get the increased XP. Can anyone help me out or am I being a pleb

Cheers

It starts on the Eastern US time zone at 9pm Friday (and in California it starts at 6pm Friday which is what time they have listed before just so you know). So adjust your clock and see what your time equivalent to that is. I'm not looking it up right now but off of the top of my head I would guesstimate adding around 5 or 6 hours to that (so yeah it would be early Saturday morning for you). But again, double check yourself to be sure! And yes you will have to load the game up from the Xbox 360 dashboard if you happen to be in the middle of playing a game when it starts for it to go into effect. I may even be online when you join up! Cheers!

First off it seems people have taken that because I simply posted in this thread that I want to boost. I love this game to much to boost it so please no FR. Secondly only 19-25 in 2 hours? Is boosting really that bad in this game? I played 4 1/2 hours yesterday and took my scientist from 20-25, scout 19-23, leader 19-23, and soldier 20-24 and that's with generally average scores. I'd have to definately advise against boosting for anyone if your pulling in similar numbers. I hope this doesn't come across as mean spirited. I'm just amazed boosting xp isn't INFINITELY higher than actually playing.

nothing wrong with getting the most out of event. played 4-5? hrs last night and got all 4 classes to 10-11. Can't imagine how long it would take for regular xp and I'm only playing conquest for the xp. Not concerned with kill streaks, blah, blah. just want to get the guys to 25.

Started @ 12PM and just finished for the night.

Scientist: 15 to 25 (+10)
Scout: 10 to 20 (+10)
Leader 13 to 23 (+10)
Soldier 12 to 20 (+8)

Up 38 lvls on the day for all classes. Thankfully I only have 12 lvls to go, =)

No boosting for this guy; all legit play to pound out that combined 100.

Feels good to have that done; didn't think it was ever going to be possible. =)

I started playing the game on Saturday and managed to get 25, 25, 14, 16 legit by the time 4x XP finished. It was pretty easy to level up in Conquest since I was averaging about 12000 xp per match. Just need to finish up the Leader and Scout classes now. :)
