LEGO Universe Leveling System Coming Soon

Post by Soundragon on Mon Jul 11, 2011 2:32 pm

It was announced today that LEGO Universe will soon be getting a new leveling system. Here's the key points from the announcement, since I can't copy/paste in iOS 5:

- Levels will be gained based on your U-Points (Score)
- Certain Levels will unlock brand new gear and abilities, such as a permanent speed boost
- Unlinked weapons, gear, etc. will require certain levels for you to be able to use them
- Your current LU score will transfer into the new levels system seamlessly
- Any linked items you now own which would normally require a higher level than you currently have will not give you any troubles as far as using them goes, once the update comes
- Any unlinked items you currently have will require specific levels once the update is released

See you in the Universe!

How do like the game so far? I've been debating on whether or not to play it, but I don't want to waste my money on something cruddy.

Don't waste your money IMO, the game isn't that good with hundreds of thousands of players anymore! Half the players are selfish and greedy (like a lot of politicians)

No, Lego didn't make the "friendly, co-op game" that they wanted.

Maybe that's just the case with the UK server. XP The game is actually pretty fun! Keep in mind the game hasn't even been out for a year! The game can only get better,new worlds,new items,etc. Also there are a lot of helpful players in the game,and this update will actually solve some of that.

Pros:
Stops beggars
Stops the focusing on rares and more on missions and achievements
New items which are EPIC!
Stops massive farming

Cons:
Having to be a certain level to obtain a certain item.

I'm a TFoL with limited time and whatever time I can I invest in LEGO Universe.

I find it fun, entertaining, full of friendly users (those who are not don't even bother me, since I'm not looking for them Razz), and well worth the price. You should be able to get a taste next month. Smile

Well worth $10/mo. Definitely. Smile

Not really worth 10 euro a year though...
what LEGO need to do is make their LEGO DS, PS3 and Xbox games have online multiplayer! LEGO won't do that though because companies don't normally make money out of those things... all LEGO seem to want anymore is money!

I guess it depends on how easy money is to come by for you. Wink

Also, you have to put into consider how much it costs LEGO to do what they do. Companies don't often charge more to put more in their pockets - they have to deal with taxes, employees, quality control, etc.

You also have to consider that LU had a major change in management. Just because the game isn't everything they wanted it to be doesn't mean they just threw together random stuff to make money. First of all they contracted NetDevil. They were the direct head, not LEGO. Then Gazzillion came in and bought ND. It wasn't until ND crashed and LEGO took the reins that LEGO was 100% in control. And now they're dealing with 5-years' worth of work. I'm sure things you dislike will improve but they can't just happen overnight. Razz

In other words I still say its great if you can afford it, and will likely only get better. Smile

BOT. Razz

The only part I have to wonder about is what they will do with our current U-Points. I'm worried they might ninja 'em such that what we had before would have given us a higher level than we actually get...

Well, I won't start until tomorrow, so I shouldn't really have to worry about losing too many points.

Figgy actually answered that on the message boards,our current LU points will count towards the levels.

What exactly are the LU points? Where do you get them and what do you do with them? And also, how do you get Faction Tokens?

LU Points, I forgot what they are...
You get Faction Tokens from most any Enemy from the Gnarled Forest+

U Points are those little thingamabobs you earn through missions for no apparent reason. Until now, of course. Razz
