Level Cap just lifted

#1 Posted by R3Qui4M (408 posts) -

So I'm a commander now. you probably leveled up already

#2 Edited by DharmaBum (1049 posts) -

Are you sure? I just checked Bungie.net and the thermometer is still frozen at a near complete state. 
 
Edit: Just signed onto Reach itself, and you're right! Too little, too late though; most people have moved on to other games.

Nice.  They need to update the meter on b.net.  I checked that about 5 minutes ago and assumed it was still in place.
 
Pretty sure I'll still be Lt. Col Grade 3, but I should rank up in a few days.
 
Has there been any word on if they've simply moved the cap up or is the lid completely blown off?

#4 Posted by Sitoxity (551 posts) -

I think it's completely blown off now and Bungie.net just hasn't updated itself yet.
 
Commander Grade 3 when it hit, almost halfway to Colonel. :D

So they gave up on "reaching" (oh yeah) the daily challenge goal or whatever? Part of me wants to give them props because that idea was absurd, but the other half feels sad that they didn't have enough people doing the challenges.

@Turtlemayor333: Did they say they hadn't reached it yet? I thought their estimate was that it would be hitting the challenge goal in early November.
 
Either way, cool for the people who were waiting for it but this won't affect me for quite a while.

I was done with Halo Reach a couple of weeks ago.  This isn't enough to entice me back in unfortunately.

I assume they have reached the goal, but the meter on b.net hasn't been updated yet.  It hasn't moved since yesterday when it jumped to just barely below the goal.

Step into my office.

Good morning! As you may have noticed, we've begun deploying today's hopper update, which among many things unlocks access to new Ranks and Armory items. Which you are all undoubtedly delirious about, if your polite forum responses are any indication. You complete us!

Just a couple of things to clear up:

  1. Full deployment may take several hours. When all is said, done, and thoroughly verified, we'll make some more noise on the front page.
  2. There is NOT another rank cap in place. Go nuts.
 
This doesn't affect me personally but it's cool to hear the cap is lifted. As a community event I thought it was a really cool idea and sure enough the Reach players pulled through and lifted the cap in a scary amount of time. Nice work everyone.

Crikey - I can't imagine anyone reaching the Inheritor rank?!  It certainly ramps up after Colonel.

This.
 
Halo Reach was one of the greatest disappointments of this generation, near Halo3.
#14 Posted by R3Qui4M (408 posts) -
@Lebensbaum: It did the opposite for me I've moved on but this brought me back.
#15 Posted by Arker101 (1474 posts) -

Cool? If something were to attempt to bring me back, it would be a gameplay renovation.  
 
This is nice, too.

@Shadow: Woah awesome. I literally just popped over hear to see if it goes past   General Grade 4 - Awarded at 2,650,000 cR     Thats what the max is at bungie's website. I can't imagine getting to 20million. I mean the average per game, with no challenges or additional points is 1000. So thats like 20,000 games played. I hope people who get up there get it legitimately.

@Jack_Daniels: Do you have to pass the old cap to see the new items, 'cause I'm still a Warrant Officer (grade 1) and it's still the same old stuff for me.
