Relax! Just get badges on games you find fun and you will quickly level up! :)

Lol now it’s 226 points to Level 33 for me! (I gained some points)

I simplified your formulas.
5(n+3)(n+4) – 100 =
5(n^2+7n+12) – 100 =
5n^2 + 35n +60 – 100 =
5n^2 + 35n – 40

[ 15(n-32)(n-31) ] /2 + 5(n-34) + 55 =
15(n^2 – 63n + 992) / 2 + 5n – 170 + 55 =
(15n^2 – 945n + 14.880) / 2 + 5n – 115 =
7,5n^2 – 472,5n + 7.440 + 5n – 115 =
7,5n^2 – 467.5n + 7.325

The formulas don’t work at some levels. The first formula works on low levels, but not on high levels like 34. The second formula also doesn’t work very well.

Has anyone noticed their Kongregate level drop? I would have swore that I was a level fifty-something, but I just got level 48 today. I could be mistaken. It’s just that my boyfriend even swears that I was level 55. This is the second time I’ve noticed that my level fell backwards over the last 4 years that I have been playing games on Kong.

Or we could bring this post to the attention of the admin who set up the point system. But who? ._.

This post from the FAQ answers that. To sum it up, you get bragging rights, to some degree.

What do you think would be so good perks you could “unlock” through leveling?
Like any system there’s room for abuse, which I why I think level is primarily for bragging rights right now. But unlocking profile skins could be cool, in my opinion. Though since that’s a K+ feature, I’m not so sure.

Good idea V, unlocking profile skins at certain levels would be upvoted by me!

Lou Weed, thnx for the table, it’s very helpful. I also agree with Vendetta that unlocking profile skins or something similar would be great…:D

it would be nice if you could get small amounts of kreds for leveling up e.g 10 kreds per level up

That wouldn’t be good for the site. 10 kreds = $1. You do the math.

Is there any way to extend this beyond Level 65 just for the fun of it? (Hypothetically if the level cap is increased/removed).

Zantier your level 50 is correct —> 50 17260

I’m at level 49, 88 more points till I crack level 50.

I think my last post may have gotten lost under the chart, so repost:

The level points needed to next level are increased in a random pattern, so there’s no way to calculate what the level could be if the cap was increased. (You can still go with the formula of +10 increase each 5 levels, it’s the one used in the last 20 levels)

Well I wouldn’t call it random, there’s definitely a pattern. It’s just not clear what exactly the pattern is.

I wouldn’t call it a pattern when it goes 20 levels with 10 points increase in the points to next level, then it increases to 20, then it increases by 5 points each 5 levels until 49, when it increases by 10 instead of by 5 per 5 levels.

It’s possible that there’s a pattern, but 65 is too low to figure it out and now it just looks hand-picked.

but you could do “1 kred per lvl”
