Howdy!

XP rates are increasingly getting higher across the board. As a result there are now over 70,000 200m skills with that number growing daily. A few years from now that number will likely be over 200k.

I think the XP cap needs to be increased. Because of the integer limit (2,147,483,647) and because XP includes fractional (0.1) XP, the maximum possible XP is 214,748,364.7. For whatever reason Jagex decided to cap skills at 14.7m below the possible maximum or 200,000,000.0.

I suggest the removal of fractional XP. With today's rates, losing out on 1 XP or less per action is meaningless. All fraction XP would be rounded down.

If fractional XP is eliminated, the maximum amount of XP could be raised to 2,147,483,647. This would be the equivalent of slightly more than virtual level 150 as shown below:

Level 121 - 115,126,838 XP
Level 122 - 127,110,260 XP
Level 123 - 140,341,028 XP
Level 124 - 154,948,977 XP
Level 125 - 171,077,457 XP
Level 126 - 188,884,740 XP
Level 127 - 208,545,572 XP
Level 128 - 230,252,886 XP
Level 129 - 254,219,702 XP
Level 130 - 280,681,209 XP
Level 131 - 309,897,078 XP
Level 132 - 342,154,009 XP
Level 133 - 377,768,545 XP
Level 134 - 417,090,179 XP
Level 135 - 460,504,778 XP
Level 136 - 508,438,379 XP
Level 137 - 561,361,362 XP
Level 138 - 619,793,069 XP
Level 139 - 684,306,901 XP
Level 140 - 755,535,943 XP
Level 141 - 834,179,178 XP
Level 142 - 921,008,346 XP
Level 143 - 1,016,875,516 XP
Level 144 - 1,122,721,449 XP
Level 145 - 1,239,584,831 XP
Level 146 - 1,368,612,462 XP
Level 147 - 1,511,070,513 XP
Level 148 - 1,668,356,950 XP
Level 149 - 1,842,015,252 XP
Level 150 - 2,033,749,558 XP
Max XP - 2,147,483,647 XP

Please discuss :)

Ohs noes! Not muh fractional ex pees!

Since my highest xp in a single skill is only 43m I don't feel like this update really matters to me but it does seem sensible.

200m is hard enough already.
I also doubt if jagex will be able to round everything properly without braking the game.

Let's keep the game playable.

Agreed with this. If the level cap would be needed to be further increased they just could flatten the xp curve, so this shouldn't be an issue.

Displaying all XP without using a decimal place would not break anything... The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

awwww so naive

for someone thats almost all 200m. i disagree with this for reasons posted above. and also as how iconic 200m is to rs.


i remember when suomi broke the hiscores for getting 4.2b xp

most people wont see this as freedom of yay more xp to gain. it would be a race to rank 1. with many burn outs

200m all on 7/3/19

It would absolutely be a race to number 1. A race I would not partake in LOL! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Of course 200m is iconic. But what happens 2, 5, or 10 years from now when a huge amount of players will no longer be able to gain xp due to capping?

Xp is worthless and doesen't mean anything. Someone with 5.4b xp could struggle with gwd2 bosses. There's limitations on xp because of Java. Java would need to be removed for this to happen. The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

I agree with your first statement. However, your second statement is incorrect. XP cap could be increased by over 10x within the Java limitations.
