Would you play a game with a thousand levels? I think the thing I like most about MMOs is leveling. Of coarse there wouldn't be new abilities all the way to 1000 but you'd get all your abilities fairly soon then they would just scale with you as you leveled.

I think it would take even the most dedicated player years to reach 1000, but the plus side is that there would always be something to work towards.

 

I think there are some games that have already been made with really high level caps, like Asheron's Call I think is pretty high.

Oposite to what i think is a majority of players i dont play to achieve levels.
I Level bcs its the common mmo mechanic and i need to do it to unlock content.
No - i would not play a game that offers thousand levels!

I play a game for its content, which has to be diverse and must not be combat centered but should contain combat, i want to adventure a world that i never can adventure in real life bcs in our times it does not exist or i lack the time/funds to do so and i want to do it a my/our pace with close friends!

Assuming the game has enough content to keep you entertained for 1000 levels sure.

I think there would have to be something like randomized dungeons that scaled to your level to accomodate.

I think a game like that would suffer from what EVE does.

 

Unless people come in from the beginning, they are always going to feel like they're behind. This makes it tough to attract new players.

 

Perhaps if they made the levels mean something other than progression or there was a lot of horizontal progression they could get away with it. EVE tries to do that by making a solid base of skills fairly easy to get, but you do still feel left out a bit.

 

I don't know, I don't think I've really thought through a system like this before.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

I think it's sort of a different issue in EvE because you have almost no control over how fast you progress. I think with upping the xp requirement for every level, eventually players would hit an area where it takes forever and a day to get a level and it would allow lower level people to catch up.

It depends. Would there be enough content to keep me interested for a thousand levels? Would the game world be big enough that I'm not slogging through the same zone for weeks/months at a time? Would every level make me feel as though my character were advancing and growing in power, or would they just be small stat/HP increases?

If the answer is yes, then I'd gladly play a thousand-level game. Although that would be a pretty tall order for any company to fill, seeing as how most games (even ones out for years) have a hard time producing enough content for 60 levels, let alone a thousand.

My guess is I would get tired of the same abilities if they just scaled.

It depends on what type of content you want. I think if a game with 1000 levels were to be made it would have to have some sort of dynamic content creation. There could also be a limited amount of hand crafted stuff too since it would most likely be better.

How could people play together in that game? The game mechanics would need to be adapted so that lvl 800 player could party with lvl 500 player without either of them being bothered about level difference, or people would get very lonely.

The only way it would work is if your level was an indication of your time in game, and not your power level.  Otherwise how could anyone play together?

The number is arbitrary. What matters is how long it takes to get there. And you'd want to have something to gain from every level. Realistically you cannot offer something new with every level if you have thousand levels. Many of the level-ups would end up to be just padding in your overstrecthed level-cap.

There are games that already solve that problem through mentoring or sidekicking. eg. Raise your level to your friend's while your grouped or lower it.,whichever is needed.

Why not just have 60 be the top level but make it harder to level.

(But our amps go up to eleven)

OP  5/05/12 12:01:55 AM#18

It would be unrealistic to offer new abilities every few levels. I think scaling abilities and offering some distributable stat points would suffice.

I really don't like managing more than a few abilities at once anyhow, it's more of a hassle than it is fun. I think a handful of abilities chosen out of a skill deck like some newer games are doing would be best.

 

Very high levels would be meant to always have something to work towards, rather than logging in and realizing you have nothing to do after you hit max level and got the best gear.

Numbers are meaningless. But I wouldn't play a game that had years of vertical progression, no.
