    I'm sure you've all come across that game that gives the most unfair, tedious XP points boost ever. What I mean by this is sometimes you'll do something so good and hard but yet you don't get many XP points for the task. I can think to GRID's XP system. Sometimes you'll finish 1st in a race with a considerable amount of people and maybe only get 1 or 2 points (something you would get for being not first). Of course, it all depends on the ranking of the players but I really do think it is tedious to build up.

    Yeah, well at least when there is a problem not on your end, it usually saves your XP you earned (no bonus).

    I would say its working as intended for Halo 3. Your Skill Rating is shown for each play list, and your EXP rating shows how much you have played the game. I could join a Team Slayer match and have a Skill Ranking in slayers of 3, but have a much higher EXP ranking. Players will know two things after seeing that: Either I never play Slayers, or I manged to smerff my skill level down so I can trash on noobs.

    It's pretty annoying that in most (if not all) Final Fantasy games you get zero XP for defeating bosses.

    City of Heroes because of fucking XP debt. At first it's nothing, but when that starts to add up you will want to shoot up a Wendy's.
