Point-Level relation

I was just wondering what is the relationship (on Kong) of points and levels. I mean to say is there any mathematical formula that you can use to calculate how many points are needed for a certain level? Thanks.

Yeah, um, let me find Zantier’s thread…

In the mean time, I made this cool calculator for it =D:

Edit: Sorry, I can’t find his thread (I tried!) =(

Yeah that calculator is pretty cool. Is it based off of Zantier’s work?

This calculating thing is ridiculous.

It would be much better if kongregate just fixed this with a simple formula.

This limit of 64… Man, why???

Please, Kongregate, fix it. Even if the change implies in reestabilishing levels to a new formula, no problem, because it would affect everybody proportionaly.

I don’t see why people waste their time inventing formulas.

Aw.. that sucks theres actually a max level.

You guys have no idea what you are talking about.

Only two people on the site got to level 64, and the nearest user to get there is level 58. I’ve been in this site since June 2007, I’m a normal user (with normal user I mean: I rate games, get badges, only four referrals, and I have a life like going to school and doing homework) and it took me that long to get to 28.

Xuxu, you are on Level 1, so I don’t see you are getting capped anytime soon. What’s the real problem with the level limit? Capping at 100 would only affect two people. Even making the level limit 999 it would affect two people.

Haha… I’ve been here since late May… but I never rated games in the beginning! I missed a fast, easy chance to get a bunch of points when rated got you 5 points!

Yes :(

When I joined, voting games was still worth 5 points. Two weeks later they changed it. And I was busy all week getting points challenge, (usually 60 points) when voting 12 games would make it… sigh. Voting 60 games doesn’t sound that sweet now.

your level calculator is wrong on upper levels. at level 30, the formula changes as to how hard it is to level up… it becomes increasingly harder. it is no longer +10 the previous amount of points. i’m working out a complete list, but i’m still missing some in the 50s. I have everything from 1-48, and then 53-59 and 64.

Is there a specific formula for level 30 and up?

My calculator is not wrong.

Because it isn’t mine.

I think the max level should be 128 (Though JIG would probably reach that), Eventually more and more people will be higherer levels. Maybe if anyone else reaches level 64 they could do that.

Eventually people might regret not voting back when voting got you points!

They aren’t losing anything. When the level gets capped to, let’s say, 128, JG and OML will level up what they didn’t when they were capped. So we would have level 80s in no time.

there is a new specific pattern from 31-50. after that, i’m still trying to figure it out. because it changes again. 1-30 is +10 from the level before. 31-35 is +15. 36-40 is +20. 41-45 is +25. 46-50 is +30. so it’s still a pattern, just a new one.

edit: also, Zantier’s thread is updated to reflect my data that I listed… before I posted in that thread, his information was wrong. So, yea…
