I wonder if they will someday change how the final levels go, since right now it seems like half of the 60s take forever and the other half are instant.

And then they slow down at the end again.

What level in the 40 go by really fast?

Level 48. I think you can get 13% a day.

I was in the leveling guide a while ago. :)

#160 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
I haven't checked that guide since it used to be more accurate before going to GS Wide. Back then it showed exact numbers of what you would get.

It's probably like 2.4% or something like that so it rounds up some days to the closer number. That's why the old system was so much better, people actually new what they were getting.

Through a bug that came when the staff had to re-assign points to some users I think.
#178 Posted by Swanogt19 (24159 posts) -
That's a nice bug :P

#180 Posted by fastesttruck (25353 posts) -

I'd be really really mad tho since thats my all time favorite level name :P
#181 Posted by Horgen (110050 posts) -

Yup. I hope I somehow get it too :P
#182 Posted by Cloud_765 (111391 posts) -
JPL's percent gain bug? He told me on MSN he actually wanted his percent fixed but instead they removed a point loss or two. I'm lagging through this level... ;(

I just joined you at this level. :P

You should catch up to him.
#185 Posted by 6h05tly (2199 posts) -

I used to like gaining levels, but the only times I liked earning them were from levels 1 to 10 because of the new features you unlock for your GS account. After that it becomes a chore and it lacks its purpose.

But I will say that it is still an interesting concept. It's a lot better than earning Wiki points on Giant Bomb or 1up's own ranking system. I only earned 2 wiki points on GB and little progress on 1up (And I haven't returned to those accounts for the past couple of years!)

I want a new level now!!! :cry:

What is 1up's system?
#189 Posted by 6h05tly (2199 posts) -

It is kind of difficult to explain (since my last login was a few year ago) so I'll do the best I can to explain it.

Apparently you earn points by blogging, game lists, reviews, etc.

My points at the moment (searched my account via google sans logging in) is 9,141. This is somewhat of a low-ranking score, and the last time I logged in it was about 2,000 (so this means that I'm earning points without being active on the site!)

Well, I made the account back then to expand my gaming socializing. But the site, as well as Giant Bomb, didn't interest me so I stopped using those two and continue to use GS because I'm more comfortable with this site interface. 

#190 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
How are you earning points without being active in the site?
#191 Posted by 6h05tly (2199 posts) -
I haven't the slightest clue since the same thing is happening to one of my 1up friends who also doesn't use 1up anymore.
#192 Posted by lancelot200 (61977 posts) -
You probably just get point for how long the account has been created and account views.
#193 Posted by 6h05tly (2199 posts) -

I don't know, maybe.

I do know that 1up is less restrictive than GS in terms of comment/forum posting, Clubs (think "unions" here), etc. But that wasn't the reason why I don't use my 1up account. It was the pseudo-convoluted user interface, especially the profile page which annoyed me a lot. The same can be said about Giant Bomb's interface which I hated as well.

Wait so it wasn't a bug but a removed point loss that made it go up?
