Topic: EXP share
Right there's been some changes to the way exp is shared, and of course all the high tier players are complaining.
If anyone believes "balanced" is a T0 getting the kill gives a T9 the same exp, then this is the wrong game for you.
This was supposed to of been addressed a while back, and has since been abused.
So, we've had to re write the exp code.
The following changes have been made.
For every player in the group a 10% increase of the exp BEFORE sharing has been added.
The average level of tier in the group is calculated, then 20% added.
The exp is then shared at that level of tier.
Right so in simple terms :-
A T1, a T4, T7, T6 and T9 are grouped.
The kill is 50 exp (white mob)
50% is added (50 * 1.5) = 75 exp.
The tier count is 1 + 4 + 7 + 6 + 9 = 27.
Add 20% (27 * 1.2) = 32.
Average tier is 32 / 5 = 6.
Exp shared at T6 level.
If everyone is around the same tier, the group will benefit a lot mainly from the 10% exp per player.
A low tier may take a exp hit per kill with a high tier, but, you will be killing faster, and should also be learning from the higher tier, tips on how to play.
Player's experience is invaluable compared to actual game experience.
