I'm currently Level 25 and in the top 5% online but noticed there are only 6 drivers in the world at level 50 and it requires 1,000,000 XP.

Can anyone tell me the quickest way to rank up online?

I've been playing a lot of sprint mode and doing ok (top 4 finishes)

Does anyone know if the number of players in the race affects the total XP earned when you finish?

i.e if there are only 3 drivers and you get 3rd is the XP the same you get as if you finished 3rd out of 12 drivers?

Would like some advice on this as the dizzy heights of level 50 seem a long way off but might go for it...

Some details are in the manual. Mine is german for the PC version and my english sucks. Better read it for yourself, too:

1: Qualifying - flying laps OR (?) a top 3 position earns XP
2: Race - TOP 10 drivers get XP
3: Race - a Lap without a incident give XP
4: Race - every completed Lap gives XP, not for quitting and disqualified drivers

Not sure about 1 but I'm almost sure that 2 & 3 don't give much bonus XP. I'm rarely in races with more than 10 players and it's pretty hard to get completly clear rounds with all those destruction derby proven players around.

So I guess it's best to rack up XP by driving a lot of laps in a row and not spending so much time on the loading screens and lobbys.

a few of them people who are top with lvl 50 have been boosted.

I think you mean cheated, as boosting actually takes longer, unless you have a large, committed group. Also, I've seen plenty of level 45 + players in public matches, they just race a lot. Guy I spoke to, said he has been playing 10 hours online every day since release.

More people in the race = more XP.
Completing laps without touching anyone = more XP.

Etc.

There is no real shortcut, you need to put in the time. Codemasters haven't released any statement on how much XP is awarded for each action you perform, so at the moment, we're all in the dark.

I still think there is more to it than what has been said on these forums so far.


There is a guy that is level 44 I think with only 89 wins, the rest of the people around him are at 300 plus wins.

You don't need to win to rank up. He could play 100% races online and finish second. He would get a lot of XP, but not a win. If he comes 2nd and there are 7 people behind him, he gets XP for beating all of them. A friend of mine has 17 wins and is rank 10. I have about 10 wins and I am rank 21. Wins are not indicative of rank.

If you finish 2nd in Sprint mode (3 laps) without hitting anybody on any of the laps, you would receive more than 1st place, if he hit things on his laps.

Rank 50 on this game is nothing compared to Legend on GRID, done that in like 3 days but this! my god it will take months of grinding!

This is gonna take a long long time. I've won every race I've played so far and don't even have 20,000 xp yet. 1,000,000 is gonna take ages but at least it'll be fun. :)

yh it is really fun. ive got 17 race wins out of 18 races and i have something just over 10,000 xp so it will take a while, but i prefer games that take ages to level up. thats why i loved GRID so much. i will still play this when im level 50 though, unlike GRID
