Flying over Downtown too much XP?

Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

What are your stats and level?

I wanted that zone to be a quick and easy way to burn turns and get XP without acquiring much else (items, money). In retrospect, I should have put a cap on the XP gain there, and at some point in the future I probably will (think with retcon/ascension; or with some major revamp). In the short term, I don't think it's hurting anything, even if it's pretty generous to high level players.

... not really, no one who is grinding for XP wastes turns in the skies.

Since levels aren't capped, that's not a true cap. I mean something like 300 being the max--a hard, unbreakable cap. You know, like those orange helmets they wear at construction sites. But harder and more unbreakable.

Eh. I don't think it's a big deal, really. I mean, even at my level, it'd net me 1800 XP per round. In the Delta, I regularly break 3000. At 1800/round, we can assume I'll actually average around 1350 per round (considering the sky water gives no XP). Since I need about 1.1 million to level, it'll take me about 814 turns to level. In the Delta, I'd need about 366 turns; less than half. This is also assuming that players in the skies actually have to stats to get the max gains.

Furthermore, lost phones, +XP gear, and phone numbers won't help.
