XP farming limit seems to be working

EL34xyzEL34xyz Member Posts: 1,872
I stayed in one of the challenge maps until I was only getting 1 XP per kill
100 kills was the limit
Yep, it's working :)

    I am disappointed this cap rolled out. But always said I will quit with its implemtation.
    When soft cap comes I quit the game.

    No big deal to me.
    I get bored after 100 kills :)

    No bug, @EL34xyz...I was just hoping there would be one with this particular part of the update. ;) I will miss having the opportunity to farm high levels of XP, but I think they've made some great changes in this update that are setting things in motion to keep up the interest level and let players continue to progress.

    I did on an explore mission and ended up with 32K not bad for 100 kills before it would have been like 10k

    @kstar
    Thanks, I forgot to mention that
    The final payouts are better for the number of walkers killed

    The point is to increase the value of purchasing gasoline or any other level increasing purchase (gold: I'm looking at you!) ;)

    lvl18 normal walkers gave 90XP prior to 1.10 and now we get 347XP per kill for the first 100 walkers. That's an increase of +286% XP per kill.

    With this change all players gain additional XP much quicker than they could have received with farming under old conditions.

    Nothing to complain about imho.

    I think the XP increases are good especially for completing story missions. Those are nice bonuses. I hate losing out on farming, but I can go out and farm 100 walkers every now and then for old times' sake. B)

    Now that you get more bang for your buck, it would be interesting to see what the XP total is now on those favorite farming episodes

    Level 7 walkers give 53 xp per kill instead of 35. Discovered this on a challenge map. I'll update in 30 minutes what level 8 give.

    The higher XP kill reward has suddenly made some of the medium-easy challenge missions levels more interesting. You can get good rewards playing for example 'Behind Corners' even at level 12 recommended if you farm 100 walkers and you can do that pretty quickly.
    I'm lost.

    @EL34xyz I did 9-3 (Boxes vs Walkers) in Nightmare and picked up about 32K in XP. I fled, but I could have picked up another 26K in completing the mission. Debating on doing that the next time to close it out. One of the main reasons to farm was to gather XP while gas replenished. Now, the mission is over in 10 minutes with the XP limit. Doesn't seem worth it anymore. For nearly same gas cost, I can still get the same XP without sending a scrub to the hospital tent (and assuming I get some decent crates).

    @EL34xyz Without the kill cap there wouldn't be higher kill XP and thus speculations about possible XP amounts for farming don't make sense. ;)
  • DLichDLich Member Posts: 5,541
    I played a challenge mission vs level 7 walkers and earned 53 XP per kill instead of 35. Im glad everyone whose level 52 enjoys this "nerf" since not all levels give 3x more xp per kill.

    Only discovered "farming" by accident a couple months ago. Tried it for a few hours one Saturday when kill XPs were doubled for the weekend. Too boring to bother with. You get better XP doing other missions any way. I only play challenge missions to keep my outpost maxed and avoid raids. Not even worth the time gathering 7500 for legendary equipment. The drops, for me, have never been greater than level 17 and are only worth a few extra thousand XP when sold. Beyond that, challenges/outposts.... it's a pointless aspect to the game. If I were at survivor level 2,3,4... etc, maybe a different story.

    91 xp for killing Lvl 9 walkers rather than 45.

    As delighted I am in hearing everyone's opinion on how they felt farming was boring or tedious I have to assume this nerf doesn't affect you.

    You didn't farm for whatever reason you felt it was invalid so in actuality the 1.10 soft cap update doesn't affect you in the slightest.

    Im glad you can show us farmers the ability to earn extra xp per kill (not double or triple as mentioned until you get to higher level) and how everything is all roses regarding an aspect of the game which you didn't take advantage of (or found little benefit in taking part of)

    But unless there is a way to get unlimited gas without paying or get double xp without paying or earn 100K in 1 hour without spending more than 6 gas... us farmers were affected in this nerf.

    So as happy as I am that an aspect of the game hasn't effected your gameplay style please understand that there are players, whom played differently than you did, and are now not able to do so.

    I guess if I want to earn 100K XP in 60 minutes I'll be required now to buy $2 unlimited gas or $3 double XP to do so.

    This is honestly the only game I have ever seen that limits the amount of XP you can earn in the primary way of earning XP.

    Just as those whom compare "well you're earning more XP per kill" we're also earning less XP per gas based upon OUR play style.

    @DLich The lower your lvl the lower are your XP costs for upgrades etc. and thus I deem the overall XP increases as fair.

    lvl10 was 50XP and is 109XP now. +109%
    lvl11 was 55XP and is 132XP now. +132%

    It's helpfull for all players that there is no fixed factor for the increased XP values. I understand that a player with a currently lower lvl might not yet see the whole picture, but trust me this will change in the further progress.

    I like the 100 kill limit
    That way I don't feel guilty when I leave a farming session because I was bored

    Now that I am forced to leave, I feel better. :#
  • LadyAquilaLadyAquila Member Posts: 625
    @EL34xyz, I still miss it, but you're right. I don't feel guilty when I'm watching TV, thinking, "I should be farming while I do this." ;)
