Pre-2007 Level Formula Feb. 8th, 2012 @ 01:09 AM Reply

I know this is a massive long shot, but does anyone have the formula for level calculations using the original level system (I can't remember whether it would tell you your level or exp requirement for a certain level)? IIRC Newgrundling published it many moons ago but his posts from that time have gone the way of the dodo. I'm trying to determine what level I would be if the system was never reprogrammed and upgraded to 60 levels so I can use that icon for my user icon. That way I can retain the light aura I've carried my entire NG history. ^______^

Thanks in advance if anyone can help me out!

I use to have it but it got deleted when my computer crashed. I know you could probably find it if you did some serious searching through Where is how to Archives.

I remember seeing a news post from someone who had calculated the modern day requirements of each level for that system but I can't recall their username. Hopefully someone will have it, I've already tried Google briefly. Trawling thousands of posts for it is far too daunting a task.

Excellent, thanks bro! The requirements on that page are outdated but it did lead me to the formula. Now to punch in some numbers...

Please do, I may need the pre-2007 formula to determine EXP requirements for the classic levels at some point. Last time I checked this I was at level 20. Should still be there considering the excessively slow progress of levelling up at this point.

I've updated it. Here's the list of requirements as it would be on this day:

Level 01: 0 - 50
Level 02: 50 - 100
Level 03: 100 - 150
Level 04: 150 - 200
Level 05: 200 - 250
Level 06: 250 - 300
Level 07: 300 - 350
Level 08: 350 - 400
Level 09: 400 - 2,473
Level 10: 2,474 - 4,546
Level 11: 4,547 - 6,620
Level 12: 6,621 - 8,693
Level 13: 8,694 - 10,767
Level 14: 10,768 - 12,841
Level 15: 12,842 - 14,914
Level 16: 14,915 - 16,988
Level 17: 16,989 - 19,062
Level 18: 19,063 - 21,135
Level 19: 21,136 - 23,209
Level 20: 23,210 - 25,282
Level 21: 25,283 - 27,356
Level 22: 27,357 - 29,430
Level 23: 29,431 - 31,503
Level 24: 31,504 - 33,577
Level 25: 33,578 - 35,651
Level 26: 35,652 - 37,724
Level 27: 37,725 - 39,798
Level 28: 39,799 - 41,871
Level 29: 41,872 - 43,945
Level 30: 43,946+

I would've only been level 20 at this point, close to 21.

If you need any help with determining these requirements Bahamut, feel free to ask. I can easily reupdate it for you when the time comes. Or better yet, I could provide you with the formula (which is quite easily derivable anyway, actually).

Ah, so it WAS you behind the news post I was thinking of! I stumbled across your name before being given the link here but when I went to your userpage and it wasn't your latest news post I figured it must have been someone else. When I saw that list of yours originally it had been your latest for quite some time so I doubted that had changed. Assumptions, eh?

Bring it back. Make Pimp work for level 60. Scale the levels after that. Call me elitist but I don't wanna see hundreds of golden leveled users in a couple years time. I'd much rather see a community with a balanced spread of diversity in the levels. Besides, how're you gonna keep achievement whores happy when they've already achieved it all? The crawling pace of the rank race doesn't satisfy everyone...

at the same time... how are users like myself ever going to reach some of the higher levels?... even with 100% deposit rate

I would've only gained 5 levels since the 2007 redesign, which is ridiculous.

The mother of all mistakes.

I had last updated it in October 2009 or something, so it sank to the bottom of my news blog. I didn't think people would still care that much, since most of the old guard has left by now.

I'd also hate to see dozens of level 60 users. However, even if you would choose to spread levels 7-60, the experience gap would still be pretty big (about 820 atm). From the point where we are it would again take ages to gain a level.

Hmm I could perhaps make a gadget like that.

Though the numbers actually depends on the amount of experience points the highest ranked user has (that'd be Pimp at the moment). So you'd have to pull that number somehow rather than adding 10 exp to level 30 everyday. Otherwise it would be off if Pimp forgets to deposit.

Very nice. I would be level 20 as well, but far away from level 21. I would've gained 6 levels, which indeed would be ridiculous.

I guess that would put me right at level 24.

He doesn't update as often as Auz does.
If you knew him like I do, you'd see that.

Speaking of which, visit the NG archive forum some time?

Oh, here's the formula to it (a few posts down)
Not that you'll be able to pinpoint your level at any given time, though.

DHT already made a better list that only requires imputing Pimp's actual points:

Heh. In that case I'll make a note on my blog post that people can simply look for themselves. As long as that page stays up there isn't much point updating my blog anymore.

I have no plans to take it down. In fact, I'm hoping to add some better tools that are actually useful at a later date, so watch that space.
