Upcoming patch will remove easy loot boxes every 100 levels

  • The amount of experience needed to reach each level between 1 and 13 remains unchanged
  • The amount of experience needed to reach each level between 14 and 100 has been slightly reduced
  • The amount of experience needed to reach each level after 100 is now constant (20k EXP) and will no longer reset with each promotion
Developer Comments: With the way our experience curve works right now, players can move quickly through the first 23 levels of each promotional tier (1-23, 101-123, 201-223, etc). This is because when a player is promoted every 100 levels, the experience curve essentially resets. While this reset has worked pretty well so far, it’s also encouraged some people to stop playing the game altogether once they’re promoted—the goal of this being to save those first 23 levels specifically for seasonal events. To help address this, the experience needed for all post-promotion levels (i.e. any level after 100) is now a consistent 20k and will no longer reset. The total experience required to gain 100 levels after a promotion is roughly unchanged, however. In addition, the total experience required to earn your first 100 levels (before your first promotion) has been slightly reduced.
Looks like, when this update hits the main servers, there won't be a whole bunch of easy loot boxes every 100 levels. So anyone who's currently close to a multiple of 100 right now might want to get those loot boxes ASAP.
