When i played City of heroes, every now and again they had double xp and cash weekends which made for full servers :) does NCSoft ever do that in TR ?

There has been one event like this... and i think they are thinking twice about it to be honest.

IF i remember correctly, the last one happened BEFORE they changed the max XP bonus in the game from 2x up to 6x (depending on level).

They have also added in XP boosters that are buyable from Control Point vendors.

This already means that you can level up pretty fast already (especially once you know what you are doing ;)  (Which for the players of 40+ translates to about a 9x bonus for XP).

Double that on top and it gets pretty damn fast. Especially if you then add in the group levelling bonus.

I do know that on some forums, they estimated the typical XP rate of being between 12x and 25x the XP rate (just depends as to WHERE the XP bonus gets added into the equation).

Will they do it again?

I honestly cannot say... but it would be interesting if they did it.
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.

i think, x9 is enough already ... no x18 for singleplayers required ...

they should finally bring in stuff like the PAU (Probably Always Unknown) or other stuff in like planet Mycon (Mysterious Yellow Cab Of Nonsense) ...

we will see ... ;)
