    Question Kills and XP Everywhere vs. Future Level-Cap

    I updated the game during the Guild Event so everyone got kills and XP in all maps.
    There was a torrent of negative feedback.

    I ended the Guild Event and reverted the XP / Kills in all maps.
    There was a torrent of negative feedback.

    What would be best?

    Keep the kills enabled, the game needs a shake. Any sneak peek of the "Future Level-Cap" idea?

    Also, how do I vote from Tapatalk?

    hold up I didn't read it correctly. if there is a new level cap and no xp/kills anywhere, does that include a new arbiter for the previous cap or no?

    Cinco it was a good thing to have xp/kills everywhere, because helping the lower levels gives us higher levels that arent capped yet benefits as well other than just credits. Having the spawn of your level gear was smart too. you should have more of these guild event challenges as well because it shows who is the better guild like in the old days of guild wars before.

    we need a new cap. hopefully, the new cap will come with a new map/weapons. I can care less about the xp/kill farming because you can always enable it later down the line.

    The best way would probably be the middle way.
    Let us get kills but no xp. XP only at STS (LV55) or the latest map.

    This game needs to be rewardable when farming.
    Those who are against it are those dudes who sit in the Base 24/7 trying to sell their overpriced stuff

    Nobody would say no to a new lvl cap but PLEASE release the remaining Arbiter parts. We know they're finished. I even have the screenshots of them from 2012

    Enabling kills gives us something to do while waiting and gives us competition because everyone will try to get on that leaderboard.

    Kills everywhere YES , XP everywhere NO

    that is true, but we can always get that option after we obtain a new level cap. We could have both of them instead of only one.

    I am still against kills and xp anywhere. I understand that people want to earn kills faster, but the thing that scares me about kills and xp anywhere is the amount of bots in SL currently, due to the lack of mod presence. If you allow this, it will encourage bot use in maps such as cycorp 5, or any other maps where there are large amount of kills to be earned with little risk of being killed. Personally, I have spent well over $1,000 usd on plat to purchase the enable xp elix, and I still buy plat to this day for that privilege, it is very upsetting knowing that my leaderboard spot will most likely be taken over by a bot that is farming kills 24/7 within a week or less if you allow kills and xp everywhere. I suggest you make a non hardcore map for the upcoming level cap(if you decide on pursuing a new level cap), so those that wish to farm kills may do so because it can be difficult to farm in hardcore maps (Even though some people on the PVE Kills leaderboard have been farming kills in the hardcore maps and have been doing fine). My main points in this paragraph are that, 1) It will encourage bot use in lower level maps, 2) I could've bought a new graphics card with the money I have spent on the enable xp elix. That is all.

    I need a new level cap too if i think you add New gear ( different looking armors and weapons for any class)/ New map/ A few new strong enemies/ Arbiters etc. to the game. I know it will take a while and its hard work (alone?) but the time to wait will absolute worth it. At this time there you produce all the new stuff, you could make some other small events like the latest that many players liked so much .
    I miss the kills you could get at any area tho...but i guess we cant get both...

    Yea new lvl cap is what we need! If we can just use stims to kill we can kill fArm the legit old school way. Iím all about the xp/kills for every level but if you just let us use stims on STS and future updates(due to lack of players) then this game will be good. I think the xp should be off but kills should count. Like Iím lv 55 and I wanna plvl a person lv 15 at cycorp 5. They should get xp until 19 or 20 then I can move to Numa to powerlvl. Getting the kills is nice.

    Can do xp everywhere if:

    Scale down high level people in low level areas. The high level person could still be high level for the zone but if say an L55 is in an L20 zone, they would be at 50% of their hps and attacks.

    Star light, star bright...

    Hello Cinco, I agree with deathplague but also disagree, Xp everywhere no, kills everywhere yes, and level cap I would love a new level cap, anyways I think you should patch the user of external apps that allow botting. The fact certain people bot is very unfair for us who try doing everything legitly.

    I agree Koolop , and I honestly didnít know Bots existed in this game, I have personally never seen anyone using a program that auto kills or something like that. But ya if thatís going on it needs to be addressed.

    I think that kills everywhere needs to stay. The leaderboard has been the same for a long time and I feel like it needs a change. Adding more competition for it would add a reason to farm. I don't know about xp anywhere, it seemed helpful, but made it too easy to level up. I would probably just stick with kills, no xp.

    I suggest kills come back plus arbiter definitely back pls, im a bit salty 51 didnt get anything out of it

    If possible make xp harder to get? Like if ur out of recommended level u get half an xp, so every second enemy u get xp. If not then no need i guess

    I would love it personally if kills came back everywhere and ur level gear drops too was a neat idea. That way it gives us a little incentive to help lower players but also gives us something to do between updates. But yeah you can keep the xp out it isnt needed
