I've made some very significant changes tonight. I believe that these changes will help drive players with characters reaching 'oldbie' status towards finishing their character in the proper blaze of glory it deserves. Who wants to see an old ass Judge Murphy in a rocking chair?
Next Character Bonus
Everyone whose earned a few weeks of UE will be eligible for a percentage of their character's experience to rollover as bonus UE in their next character. The current bonus is set to 6%.
All characters will be subject to a maximum limit on how much unassigned experienced can be earned. When the limit is reached (or if you're already at it), you will no longer earn the daily UE. The value we settled on for this is over 2 years of 3 UE a day. The majority of players don't earn that, they have lives that get in the way. I expect most to hit the limit between 5 and 8 years. Reaching this limit does not mean your character is done. It's just not going to grow via UE at that point. Yes, I do hope its an incentive to make a new character.
The number of non-admin alts characters (i.e. true players) affected by this immediately is only 1. There are less than 10 characters in total immediately effected. If you're getting close to the limit, you'll see information in @stats.
We're now recording the timestamp when your character finishes character generation (Somehow overlooked) and letting you know how old your character is in your @stats. If you don't have this new value, it will use when you first started to play the game.
