Stats going past 10

Postby Burn » Sun Aug 08, 2010 2:30 am

I just came across a character (no names will be mentioned) that had their strength past 11.

So this is a reminder to all.

This particular bug is to NOT be exploited. Anyone caught doing so will be dealt with accordingly.

If you see any characters with ANY stats past 10 notify a Moderator IMMEDIATELY VIA PM. Do NOT create a thread about it.

And do NOT ask how it's done.

Nope.

But given that I found a second character from the same team, i'm a tad pissed off right now ...

And here I was thinking already covered this topic when N_V made a thread specifically asking whether it was legal to exploit said glitch not too long ago #-o

edit
now that I check, it was December last year. Who said I have no track of time? :P

What gets me is anyone with the ability to stock up any skill to 11 has to have been playing a decent amount of time to know that using that exploit is considered an illegal move.

Correct me If I'm wrong but isn't the Force Field listed as 11 not for the requirement, but because it could only be issued by winning the opportunity in tourney's?

If someone wants to spend over 2 million xp on a single stat point forgoing a dozen others is it really that big of a deal?

apparantly. the main point is rules are rules, and they are meant to be followed. also some people (like me) have to spend 2 million for any stat (unless we want to dump into stats we dont need like int or skill), so cranking your top stat to 11, or 12, or 13 isnt that bad of an option.

its outside of the games set parameters and we should all respect that

It's my understanding that the game mechanics are only coded to work with stats up to 10, and that stats of 11 tend to **** the game up big time.

Pretty much my understanding to. That kiddies is what made minicons bad to, course i think there was a cat by the name of Murderplex who solved that issue. ;)

That's nothing. I'd be lucky if I have one of my guys upgraded to level 1 before Sarah Palin becomes president.
