  • [ANNOUNCEMENT] The Race to BR100

    Some of us have been watching the Outfit roster for a while now, if you sort it by BR you can see who has the highest BR in the Outfit. Currently, Finestyle is at BR 99 and should hit 100 soon. As RAGE said in another post, there is no race really, as Finestyle has it all but sewn up. :) I suppose I just wanted to document the occasion for posterity. So, here are the current standings as of today:

        I hit 58..months ago, and before that, 57, which also took awhile. I haven't really played in months.

          And here I am, a lowly 38. I guess that's what happens when I play ~3 hours a week. LOL

              The best thing about that leader board is that aside from Buflak the recent activity of the higher ranks is fairly good.

              The worst being the 135 certs :P

              Looks like I wont be hitting BR 100 as soon as I thought, from 99 to 100 its 1,250,000 xp needed (I think I have about 600,000 to go), but I'm real busy atm so wont have much game time.
              It matters not what letters or numbers come before my name, I'll always be 1stMIP.

                Definitely becomes a grind the higher you get. I think once you hit 50, everything feels like it takes soo long to reach the ever increasing bar for levels.

                      Definitely, I reached br 50 sometime in the beginning of summer, and now, after almost daily play I'm almost 69. Then again, I don't have a membership.

                        Finestyle better get his butt back in the game or I'm liable to beat him to 100...........lol, seriously though I know he probably won't have a butt since he's been working it off on a big job recently.

                          Alright, I'm overdue for posting updated proof, but finally got around to it today. I realize this happened a few days ago already, so apologies for the delay.

                          And so, without further ado, I would like to congratulate our very first Outfit member to reach BR 100, Finestyle! Now we have really arrived as an outfit. :p



                          Looks like Jengles is going to be second, he just hit 99 today (and discussion in Outfit text in game about that is what prompted me to post this in fact). :)

                            Yeah, true, it does take a while to get up to higher BRs, hence me making this thread to recognize those who have. I don't think any of us who are high BR got here because we set out to though, but rather because we enjoy the game and play it a lot (and some have SOE memberships, which increase cert gain rate). After playing for a long time, you just eventually get up in BR as a side effect of that.

                            For any outsiders reading this, or new players considering starting up, I would say not to be discouraged by those who may be high BR, as a rank novice in this game can still beat someone else in a gunfight, the starting guns are pretty good in their own right in most cases (most alternative weapons are "sidegrades"), and you can always contribute (especially in a TG squad) by playing a supporting role such as Medic or Engineer. Vehicles are the same, you can add some nice things through upgrades, but you can hold your own with a stock tank, fighter, or bomber. Skill cap makes more of a difference than certs and equipment. SOE really have struck the balance between Free To Play and Pay To Win, which is difficult to do IMO.

                            There is so much to see and do in this very large game, a little something for everyone, from the twitch FPS shooter, to the aspiring Squad Leader, Platoon Leader, all the way up to getting to know the other Outfit leaders in our server and crafting the overall strategy of our entire faction on the server (and thereby sometimes having control of, or coordinating with, up to 10-15 platoons of troops (that's over 500 people)). The scale of this game is like nothing else I have ever seen. For me personally, it's that latter coordination on a very large scale that appeals to me. But to each their own, everyone can have a role as I said, from the lowliest grunt all the way up to one of the recognized leaders of the faction.

                              Congrats Finestyle. It was a bit of sideshow fun to race you for a time there.

                              Rage, come back! You're so close to BR100.
