I'm just curious, at Level 52, how many matches have you played?

Not sure the exact number, but somewhere between 650 and 750

 

 

 


How can you possibly play that much to play 750 games. It took me 2 years to play a total of 2k games. But it took you only 1 month to play 750 what do you eat and breath games?

60GB Launch PS3 8/29/07-7/11/09
60GB Launch Refurbished PS3 7/27/09-9/25/09
120GB Slim PS3 9/26/09-Present

 Sorry, but I have to completely disagree and this is why. If you and a friend create a private playlist consisting of "Chain reaction", all you and your friend would have to do is stand on points 1 and 2, recapturing them over and over 5 times until you hit the "Expansionist" medal, which rewards $1000, or $2000 if you have the "Deposit" perk added. If the cap was removed, or even raised, they can abuse this and obtain free money over and over without doing anything at all. They could literally leave there consoles on for days at a time accumilating money over and over throughout that time gaining limitless amounts of money and reaching the highest rank without lifting a finger nor doing anything.

 

If you're the type of player whom reaches $50,000 per game then that's awesome, keep it up. However it's not fair for anyone if this cap was lifted for the reasons I stated above. I think the cap will never be removed due to this reason and I think mostly everyone will agree, and it's here to stay.

Wow - so much wrong info in this post, I don't even know where to begin.  For starters - you don't earn money in custom games.  Second, if you actually calculate it out the zone changes every 5 seconds, so you'll make approximately 2 expansionist medals every minute * 20 minutes ~40 medals, with deposit that gives you about $80,000.  Finally, let's see, you and your friends leave your PS3's on for a few days.  You come back, and realize you've made $80,000 during the first game, and spent the rest of the time, in the lobby because the game ended...  

 

The cap should be at least $100,000.  ND please take note.

It'll take a lot longer than 1000 matches. Your going to get stuck playing Turf War, Chain Reation, King of the Hill, etc between each plunder match. In a 20 match streak according to my cinema section, I had only played Plunder 4 times in that stretch and each time Plunder won the vote. I just didn't get the option to play plunder most of the time. And your not getting anywhere near 50k in a King of the Hill match.

 

I've pretty started to give up on MP because I can't stand playing other modes.

I agree.. there should not be a cap.

 

And if people cheat to get the lvl 60 rank so what... They get a fat drake.

 

And they'll lose to every single person on multiplayer cuz they suck, b/c they didnt get better by cheating

 

who cares if they have the rank, its the skill that matters

 Yup you got a point.

 

 

60,000,000 divided by 50,000 = 1200 matches. But nobody starts getting 50,000 until they unlock the Deposit and "Badge of Honor" medals, and even then 50,000 isnt guaranteed every match.

 

 

1200 matches that take about 8-20 minutes to play... Do the math. That's an insane amount of time needed to reach max level and I bet most people will say screw it, it's an unrealistic level to reach.

 

 

So we're expected to play 10,000+ hours on 7 maps to reach the Max rank. I could understand if the game came with 12-16 mp Maps, but it didn't. 4 of those 7 I had already played for a month before having my rank reset. So the game just gets stale and boring while trying to rank up now because you're playing the same maps every few matches. They need to remove the cap so I (and the many people like me) can get more than just 50,000 per match now. 

 

 

and only giving 2 new skins and no new boosters or upgrades at lvl 60.

 

 

 

 

What was Naughty Dog thinking???

I think you meant 10,000+ minutes, not hours of play (hours would be just plain impossible).  10,000 minutes comes out to be around 7 days straight (non-stop play).

LOL Youre right Eternal, thanks for correcting me there. That would be about 170 hours though.

 

170 more hours (already played about 60hrs on the full game, + another 60hrs if you count the demo)  on only 7 maps and no new incentives between lvl52 and lvl6. How am I supposed to stay interested? 

 


ND better get a **bleep**load of new maps out QUICK... but realistically, they will probably only get 2-3 new maps out. Meh. Nice, but not enough to really keep me into this game
