CP soft cap?

11 posts in this topic

Posted

I reached 257 CP today, and noticed huge cap now.

I went from 247 to 254 with 1000 dishes of poorly soemething (side product of cooking beer). So I got 7CP for 1000 of those dishes.

Now I had 1200 of those dishes and went from 255 to 257. That seems like a huge gap to me :o 

Does it gets even worse?

Can we expect that this cap will be increased, so I will need to spend less of those dishes to get CP? Because if that's the case, I will rather save all my dishes, for when this happens.

 

Is there any experience table for CP out there, so I can see how much CP exp is require for each level?

I've read of numerous caps like those, I doubt they'll change it.

Yes.

I didn't hear anything about that happening anytime soon. Anyway, if the cap change, you won't lose contribution xp, they'll just recalculate it as they did with the merge. So no point to hoard the dishes.

I saw one once, seemed legit since my personnal experience relate. But I don't feel like digging for it, sorry.

Well if I make 20k of those dishes now, I could turn them into about 30-40CP.

But if I save those dishes for when they lower the cap, I would get more than 30-40CP, since it would require less CP exp to acctually get CP.

Or I understand that wrong?

Thanks for the link mate.

That 300% increase is just sick. From 255 above it takes 4x more exp than before ... I was expecting it would take 1,5 or 2x more, but not 4x lol

If you turn in 20k dishes, you'll get the flat amount of contribution xp corresponding to the number of dishes. Regardless of your contribution points and actual caps.

Given that they already recalculate contribution points during server's merge, I think it's safe to assume that, if the caps change, they will recalculate everything again for people who're already past said caps.

 

Now assumption aside: you can always use more CP, and directly get the benefit from them, so I don't think hoarding them for an hypothetical change is really a good move.

I have 340 CP - trust me the curve is massive, I remember making 20000 dishes which only made me go from 295 to 305 CP. It takes a hell of allot once you hit between 290 and 330

I wasn't around when this server merge happened, so I have no idea what happened back there. You are saying that after that server merge, players got "free" additional CP out of nowhere?

It just pains me to see how much time I need to get more CP now.

I get around 150 dishes per 1000 cookings, so 6500x cooking beer to get 1000 of those dishes to get 2CP.

With my 4sec cooking time, that would require 7,5 hours of constant cooking. Almost 4 hours of work to get 1 CP from now on ... Sh1t just became real xD

The percentages are all over the place. Crazy.

15. What happens to contribution for players with characters across multiple servers?

If a player has characters across multiple servers, the last server you log into before the maintenance on November 30th will be designated as your “Home Server”. The Contribution Points from the Home Server are kept, and the Contribution Points from the rest of the servers are converted into Contribution EXP, and get merged into the Home Server.

Just to be clear this means, if Server A has 10 Contribution, and Server B has 10 Contribution, they will not simply just be added up to become 20.

Any contribution rental items on servers other than your Home one will be automatically removed and the Contribution Points will be refunded. Those points will then be converted in Contribution EXP and added to your Home Server.

They added 5 levels to the combat level cap and removed the grind from 50-55 but when they added the last cap for cp they left the other softcap in, so don't expect them to lower the cap the next time they raise the cap as they hate and I mean hate lifeskills with a passion, just look at all the +lifeskill weekends we have had since launch compared to combat exp weekends or the silly plywood hardener/metal solvent etc nerf (and yes one of those is used in guild missions, do they even think at all before making these changes?).
