I'm still playing, though not a frequently as I'd like. Sorry, but I have no idea what experience you need to get to lvl 1.

How do you get to Lvl 1?

I fought a guy today with over 13000 points and still a lvl 0... Confused


It's not based on XP.

It's based on where you spend it.

From memory, once you get 6 "ranks" in various skills you level up.

Your transform skill isn't counted.

In theory you could have 1,000,000 XP and if you only have 5 ranks and a massive transform skill and still be level 0...

Yeah, I'm actually playing it right now.

You have to upgrade your skills four times (I believe). I've noticed a lot of guys seem to hover right below that, accumulating skill points but not increasing levels. As long as you don't spend your points, I guess.

I have bought some sweet weapons for my two 'bots with Firepower and Skill areas of 1 & 2. It works out, in my math, that the Sword is the best weapon for the no recharge vs damage for those without FP and Skl, while the semi-auto rifle is best for those with FP of 2.

Go to the forum for the game: they have a thread for newbies that 'splains all this.

That's an excellent link. I sent it to my fiancee and her reply was "That is sooooooooo you!"

Ah, what can I say. Sweet and adoring are my trademarks! Very Happy

Haven't been there for nearly a week.

How bad?

They made the colors lighter, but that's not too bad......

All of the vehicle icons look really weird now....

The "after battle" screen that tells you the blow-by-blow of the battle is almost unreadable (bad color selections)

That's just what I can think of off the top of my head though.... Confused

I don't like it either. I think it was an attempt to speed up page loading, but it barely helps. The banner is new and doesn't take as long to load, but I'd say it's only 25% faster (if that) overall.

No, I stopped playing a few months back, after a major change that brought in major new weapons (which I missed out on).

I was spending way *too* much time there.

Checked out this one again also.

Looks like they've had a few site updates since I last looked, as I had to get a new password issued as it couldn't carry over with the site update. Or something like that.

Anyway, it looks nice, but takes forever to load on a slightly above basic broadband connection.

Still the same old game, with a couple of new twists (Minicons for one, but I can't see any available, and can't find out how they work...), but like the ninja one, nothing that'll keep you coming back regularly.

Again, five-ten minute time waster when you remember it's there... Wink
