Wouldn't it be cool if, once a player is capped, he can't earn xp anymore (instead of stacking it for nothing), BUT when a PPA or drone kill is shared, his share of xp would go to sharers?
This would be both a great way for capped players to help team and teamates, + a great way to help fasten the lvling up of new players through team play.

This way, hitting the cap would allow you to actually help your team even more, instead of a dead-end, and it would boost teamplay and newbies integration.

I like this a lot. Only drawback is if level cap goes up. Then capped players may regret it and want the xp back that they gave away. But most capped players are genuine team supporters at that level, and I imagine would like his.

MSP, if the cap goes up, I seriously think that extra-earned xp of capped players will be "reset" , otherwise heavy grinders will probably be maxed out almost instantly... which wouldn't make any sense with the concept of "capping" in itself. That's why I thought it could be cool to still be able to gain xp when capped: if not for you, at least for the team! ;)

That makes sense. If the reset is in the cards then that would eliminate the issue I agree. I would love to see what Sym says on this one.

All this cap problems can be avoided by the prestige idea. Once you are capped you get a choice to start over again. But starting over again will gain you a prestige symbol next to your name. Each level of prestige is different symbol. So it's an achievement type thing. If you don't want to start again you just don't prestige.

GG, I love the idea of "prestige", or maybe special badges to be purchased at high xp prize?

And if you prestige you get an extra xp/ camp bonus Pts per prestige level. So you get a small bonus plus the badge. It can be done. Will it tho?? Doubt it. And also the prestige changes your drone to a different shape of ship. Just ideas here
