Why does my server have an EXP boost?
Today when a killed some mobs, I saw a message saying that my server had a 200% boost.
Why does the server have a boost and what triggered the boost?
I found some Reddit posts asking the same thing. While nothing was definitive, it seems many believe this is some sort of catch-up mechanism in the game tied to your level and the server age ( https://www.reddit.com/r/TowerofFantasy/comments/wlycgj/dont_make_this_beginner_mistake_of_exp_overflow/ explains the max levels by age of the server).
The first Reddit post is https://www.reddit.com/r/TowerofFantasy/comments/wrls3u/server_xp_multiplier/ , where users said the following:
And apparently its a "catch up mechanic" so people can catch up with the levels
My best guess is that we are severely underleveled (in terms of levelcap). Hence, the game does not want us to fall behind.
The other Reddit post I found is https://www.reddit.com/r/TowerofFantasy/comments/ws0129/can_someone_explain_the_server_multiplier_to_me/ , where people commented:
Level catch up. XP Multiplier. For example I was 34 when Server level was 41, so I get 500% Added to base XP gained
When you far behind the cap you get a little help to catch up
The wording of the message might be a bit misleading, because by the sounds of it, not everyone gets this multiplier bonus on the server, only those that are under leveled. Additionally, the percentage seems to be different for each player, depending on how far behind they are.
