Hmm... they improved and ruined pc.... let's do some math?



You get 35% xp per point, you get 4 points per game (100+)

this will give you 140% xp that's 40%more than normal pc, you would think:



but... :

jagex says this:

One portal will become unshielded 15 seconds after the game starts, then another every 30 seconds, until after 1 minute and 45 seconds every portal is unshielded.



so.. that will take you 1:45 sec to complete a game, it used to be 30 seconds?



1:45/30 sec -> 3,5 times slower than it used to be, so you could get 300% xp in the time that you get 140% xp now.....



Weird?




it seems you know some difficult maths...

so, what is the conclusion? better or worsen now?



if compare to (previous) 1 min games, is it still worsen?






It is worse..... very worse..



if it would take 1 minute, it would make a lot of difference in one hour because the xp is lowered =(

Weird?


Our general aims with rates of experience are to make features worthwhile training on while not being so good that they render other training methods obsolete and it is this balance that we have worked hard to achieve.


Not really, Jagex intended to lower the exp/hour to be closer to other methods of training combat. ;)

You didn't read the announcement correctly... It says you will get 35% of the current exp per PC point. So even getting more tickets, you still won't be getting the same amount of exp per point and time.

350% slower compaired to 300% points get, your calculation seems to be pointing it worsen off...



but, the fact is... i dont really understand your maths, can you express it a little?

Lets say with the new method it takes just over 2 minutes per game. So 100 tickets per hour.



Those 100 tickets experience wise are equivilent to 65 tickets using the old method.



How many tickets could you get per hour before?

The main thing is that the xp is worse, because you get less xp, and it takes 1:45 minutes to unshield all the portals, but as dork said, jagex wants to get people to use other training methods :(



(which i don't understand....why would you waste your time on pc instead of increasing the monsters lvls/loot)

Around 70-80 I guess. But 100 tickets now are actually equivilent to 35 tickets before. The xp per hour is halved ;)



Doesn't really effect me either way, I was maxed melee stats long before PC was ever released :P

No, there was a 35% reduction, which makes the experience 65% of what it was.

No darkdude is right. 100 tickets now = 65 tickets before. Still good, but slower.



hard to judge how long it takes without actually doing it though. it could take forever now.



EDIT: i was wrong. LMAO they nerfed PC :P. sort of good thing.

We obviously can't give as much experience per point if points are that easy to get, so the amount of experience you get per point is now 35% of what it used to be




Not a 35% reduction, 35% of what it used to be. ;)
