General[edit]

XP Curve[edit]

  • XP Curve reworked: now no longer grants bonus XP - levels are changed from within.
    • 100% faster to get to level 6;
    • midgame (levels 7-30) is roughly 25% faster;
    • 30-35 ~14% faster
    • 35-40 ~10% slower
    • 40-60 now fixed rate and same as before.
    • 1-40 is 13% faster overall.

IMBA XP[edit]

  • A small new feature that our Chinese translator came up and worked hard to make it happen, including a database server of our own! The idea, in general, of that feature, is to give players some kind of incentive to stay in games instead of leaving. This will NOT solve the leaver problem; nothing will. It may just lower the chances of someone raging out in the first or second death.
    • IMBA XP is granted when playing a full game. This includes server crashes, so don't worry about those stealing your IMBA XP. When a game ends, for any reason, and you're there, you get it.
    • IMBA XP is saved and accumulated over games.
    • You can see yours and everyone else's IMBA XP and IMBA level on a small bar in the scoreboard.
    • Each game grants a small amount of IMBA XP to all players in the server.
    • Winning the game grants a 20% bonus to the IMBA XP that is granted to the players in the winning team (that hasn't left, of course). We're planning to add more rewards to IMBA XP, such as titles, awesome particles, statues and more. Right now it's strictly and simply bragging rights.
    • This is related to the Spectre model, though it actually doesn't have anything to do with Spectre right now. This would be the place where rewards are chosen in a game.
