After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

Borderlands 2 level cap raise incoming

I have yet to get any of my two characters up to level 50 but I'm pretty close with my siren,  Level 47 as of this post.  Some hardcore players reached level 50 in the first week while others may have abandoned the game after the first play thru.  Either way Gearbox has been watching and will raise the level cap when the time is right.

The cap raise timing is partly dictated by Borderlands 2?s increased stat tracking. “With Borderlands 1 we had to go by forum posts, and by checking out the number times certain achievements had been unlocked to really get an idea of where players were” explains Lopez. “But SHiFT allows us to see a lot more about the way players are playing the game, and see what they’re doing. We wanted to give people enough time to get at least one level 50 in there, and then see from there, how many people are doing this. Is this a good time for this? We also didn’t want to wait so long that people were no longer interested, or felt like it wasn’t coming”.

Many games have a level cap either imposed by the game algorithms or by the developer.  Skyrim for instance has a level cap so you can't "perk" everything in the astrology tree.  Borderlands 2, being an RPG, has a similar level cap so when they do raise the cap it I'll be curious to see how the perk tree will change.

It won't be a challenge if you unlock everything.  sad smile
