    XP Loss on Death

    Post by sniqow on Wed May 06, 2015 7:35 pm

    Any thoughts on looking at this?

    Just bit the dirt at 17 and lost 21k, can only imagine what it would be at 40... Probably 2-3 levels?

    Yeah I mentioned this to Slaughterhouse a few weeks ago as well, about the rather ridiculous levels of XP loss on the server. lol.

    Hello Risk, I'm Reward. It is very nice to meet you.

    21k does seem a bit extreme though.

    My PC got killed at 16 and lost 8k (no orb).

    I believe this module was the safe level module.

    At levels 5, 10, and 15 you will not lose a level. Every level over 15 you lose half your XP to take you back towards 15 flat, if this is based off what I remember. It was on the idea that 20 was max. Given the changes to the module content, I would expect that to change a bit.

    Needs fine-tuning since the cap has been raised to 40... maybe abolish safe levels completely and just linearize xp losses or something...

    Damn kunou, you reminded of a certain iteration of the server, where Aldarris Thunderscythe was a level 20 Cleaven cleric... when he died he lost about 50k xp and RPed it as amnesia xD

    mm... i remember Aldarris Wink

    Anyway, XP-Loss calculations are now updated and will be effect as soon as the server is rebooted. Safe Levels have expanded to 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 and XP-Losses are linearized with some jumps.

    Up to Level 5, you will lose (Level * 10) XP, then, up to Level 20, it is (Level * 250) XP, and after that, it is (Level * 500) XP.

    *edit* changed again after reevaluation, now the correct values are shown

    I remember Aldarris quite well.  Those were good times.

    And thanks for re-evaluating the XP losses! Sounds like less than I would have used, but that's cool. Are PvP deaths somewhat nerfed below that or are those the values for both PvP and PvE death?

    didn't change the formulas, but pvp death is lower than that, and getting burned/scalped afterwards is even lower still.
