Disabling XP Gains for Level 110+ Characters

Recommended Posts

39724-patch-81-tides-of-vengeance-livest

Following the recent trends of players turning off XP gains at level 110 in order to powerlevel other players' characters, Blizzard today announced a hotfix that will disable the ability to turn off XP gains on characters level 110+.

Community Manager Ythisens posted an update regarding the hotfix and it won't be implemented, as they're evaluating better ways to solve the problem (see below).

UPDATE

We’ve been thinking about this plan more today and agree that there are probably better ways to approach this issue. We’re going to hold off on this for the time being while we discuss.

Since the launch of Battle for Azeroth, we’ve noticed an increasing trend of players turning off XP gains at level 110 in order to repeatedly powerlevel other players’ characters at an excessive rate without increasing their own level. The intention of the XP-off feature is to allow alternate characters to stay in lower-level PvP brackets or relive lower-level content, not to purposefully halt progression in content relevant to the current expansion.

To curb this behavior, we plan to implement a hotfix in the coming days that will disable the ability to turn off XP gains on characters level 110 or higher. Additionally, any character of that level who already has XP disabled will find it automatically re-enabled the next time they log in.

Oh, you mean like how raid leaders tell others to play like them because it is the only way to play?

 

Cause it seems like its fine for them to tell others how to play, but when it comes to being told how to play by others, its a big no-no.....

I think this allegory still needs a lot of work. 😕

blizzard doesnt want its game to evolve into a place where no one rly plays the game anymore but simply pays for everything to be done ( kinda funny considering the fact that there is a level boost) but you could argue that this level boost skips old content while we are talking about new content

ppl beeing able to "buy" progress is both nice and *filtered*
sure - many ppl lack the skill to aquire high level gear but can farm gold to pay others for pulling them through

at the same time - back then, you could be kinda sure that someone with hc endgame gear can somehow play his class since he had to raid for his gear -- this is now gone -- everyone and his mother has heroic gear without doing heroic thanks to sellruns

at the end of the day - blizzard is """"dumb"""" for not allowing ppl to pay others - why are ppl doing those sellruns and powerleveling ? sure - because they need gold, sure - but also because gold is worth much more since it can be exchanged into money or gametime 

so blizz actually earns something, more or less, when ppl buy those services

So it was okay for all the folks to do it last xpac, but now its a problem? Makes complete sense. LOL

Crisis averted, for now. Lore has said they're not going ahead with it and instead will think on it more. Whether they'll actually come up with a more suitable solution or just come in with a sledgehammer from a different direction, time will tell.

So there was the problem of very bad scaling and levelling decreasing your relative power. They were thinking FOR 4 MONTHS and this is the solution they came up with.

If your raid leader needs to tell you how to play the game then i'm not sure how you got into a raiding guild in the first place.

Also a raid leader explaining the mechanics of a boss is not him telling you to play the game how he wants you to play.

Someone got kicked from a raid for being a bad.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.
