Epic's experience increase.

As many know, Epic is increasing the amount of xp to get to level 100. My question to you good people is, will this set us back in rank due to this change? Once it does increase, are people going to be set back according to the true amount of xp they have?

I think it'll only affect those not being Rank 100, at least i hope so.

That'll be odd if it sets us back a rank.... it could. What would be better is if we're way behind... just put us at negative xp and let us work our way back up without setting our level back.

Since there is no source provided I'm gonna go ahead and say this is not true. Epic said they could and will change the rank 100 xp requirements but I really doubt they will double or triple the requirements. That would mean they completely missed calculated the entire ranking system. That being said, rank 100 in Gears 3 currently takes less than half of the xp that Gears 2 rank 100 did.

More than half. It takes like 3.8mil in Gears 3. Gears 2 was just under 7mil.

what is the point in increasing the amount? theres no single achieve for just reaching level 100, its going to take long enough to get all onyx medals anyway im asuming just as long as reaching level 100 in gears 2 so theres really no need to higher the amount its just pointless

True but I'm also taking into account the amount of xp I'm getting in games TDM generally gives more xp per game than any mode in Gears 2. Plus you get a crap load of xp for ribbons, medals and playing in consecutive matches.

Someone read this off the EPIC forums. They would take a look at one months worth of data, and then change accordingly.

I know as little as you do, so i'm getting my rank 100 before shit happens.

Fine but I want to see a link that shows a quote from one of the devs or mods from the Epic forums. Until I see that I have no reason to believe it.

Really? Half of 6.8mil is 3.4mil. 3.8mil > 3.4mil. Go back to elementary school.

Before one asks why, ask why not? Rank 100 takes an extremely small amount of time to achieve and knowing Epic, they probably will increase the Rank 100 requirements (or create Prestige ranks depending on how many people are already Rank 100) to get more people to play it and thus increase the amount of sales.

I hope they do increase it, though; especially for those who are attempting to get Seriously 3.0. The Onyx medals will be more than enough to reach Rank 100.

Its been said that they just left it like this to see how long time it takes for people to rank up. Later they would tweak it to what they felt right

Did anyone notice the stealth update about 10 minutes ago? I'm boosting in private matches and all of a sudden disconnected from xbl. Once I signed back in at the initial screen after pressing start it said something about downloading content. Took me about 10 minutes to get back into a game.

It always says something about downloading content when you press start on the main screen.

Yeah, it always says that but the reason you noticed it is because some users are experiencing connection issues right now according to their website. So its taking longer to load up.
