Yes, please remove the cap. I've only hit it a few times but please remove!
At level 29?
You hit the cap already without any badges of honor/ deposit?
So you'd like Naughty Dog to raise the cap so you can be finished with the game faster and move on to other games. I'm sure they'll get right on that.
Look, if Naughty Dog's intention was that 60 (and the skins you obtain) be reserved for a small group of people willing to put in the time, then this thread is pointless and all the cap complaints are equally so. As it stands right now, getting to 60 would at least be an accomplishment, much more so than any of the tired roman numeral club threads, or marco polo threads, etc..
Also, Doughnut Drake and Skelzor will rarely be seen in-game for a very long time yet, which again gives weight to those skins and the achievement of earning them in the first place, unlike Marco Polo or Genghis Khan which are already fairly common.
Having said all that, if it wasn't Naughty Dog's goal to make 60 mean something, then the cap should be dropped or the requirement to get to 60 be lowered, since it's ridiculously high for any other reason.
I've got to say, that even though $60,000,000 to reach level X sucks, it was a smart move on ND's part. If it was only a lot of people would reach it within a few weeks if not less and that would be it. No more incentive to play. But the fact that it's such a large amount of money, means that the obsessive-compulsive players will continue to come back to the game, just to slowly reach it. It may take me a year or so, but I will get there eventually. At the same time, the very fact that Roman Numerals look so much different than lower ranks, is a reward in itself. I'm still putting lots of time into U2, but will slow down once I reach 51 (currently 46).
If you're only level 46 right now, that means you have about...5 million or so.
you're not even 1/10th of the way to level 60. That would be fine if there wasnt a cap of $50 000. But with such a small cap, itll take you a long time to level up even after you get the boosters that give you more money
Imagine how much logner itll take when you consider that your interest wanes away and you dont play as often. You spend all that time leveling up and all you get at 60 is Doughnut Drake.
Like I said - it will take me about a year. I did take me playing less into account, but it will be evened out by me getting better, and the extra boosters after level 51.
Right now I'm Level 52. I dont know my exactly dollar amount, but it's less than $10million.
So even if I get $50,000 every match from now on, I'd have to play atleast 1000 more matches to get to lvl 60
I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous. Especially when you take into consideration that there really isnt much incentive to level up besides Doughnut Drake and Skelzor (nice, but not worth all the grinding it will take)
I'm not complaining about how much it takes to get to level 60. I'm complaining that my money is maxed out after about 10 minutes in a Plunder match and if my teams is winning, I have ZERO incentive to keep playing on. I'll usually end up hanging on an obscure ledge where no one can find me and will go online and check the internet until the match ends.
Extend the cap to $100,000. Or atleast $75,000. This is ridiculous. I dont see any reason why the Co op cap is so much bigger than the competitive cap. I dont want to do a survival match as Ive had a few instances where Ive played for 25 minutes and then got disconnected because someone quit and I lost all my money.
Fix this please. After playing so many hours of Uncharted 2 multiplayer to get to level 52, I dont think I have another 1000 matches left in me. Especially with all the other good games coming out in the near future.
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.Message Edited by PsychoticTalent on 11-04-2009 04:38 PM
1. even if you are able to do that, you earn $43,000 in 20 full minutes of play. You dont even reach the cap. Gold Rush is much much faster u get $40k every ten minutes.
2. you cant create a private room and earn money unless you are playing co op.
3. The cap is outrageous and NEEDS to be removed.
remove the cap
and actually make us want to get to 60
there is abolutely no reason to play this game with my friends unless we run into competitive groups every once in a while
I'm at 52 and getting very bored with what is left
same reason I left killzone
there was nothing left to do and the environments got old
uncharted is getting older faster and that is not good
we better see some decent maps here very soon at a decent price
