With the reputation boosters, it was always unclear to me rather they helped to unlock *new* tiers of reputation based perks more quickly or if they only helped you reach the tiers that you had already unlocked.


Reputation Boosters help you reach the next tier in the tree.

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

Speaking of which: What does count for "rep"? I first assumed it's from doing missions / squad score like in BF4, but I am not too sure. Also is it just me or was getting it wayyyy too hard in beta? I couldn't get past third unlock, and even that was from very, VERY good round of CQL.
Links to users' thread list who have made analytical/statistical/mathematical/cool posts on Symthic:
  • 3VerstsNorth - Analysis of game mechanics in BF4 (tickrates, effects of tickrate, etc)
  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

You gain REP for doing anything. If it appears in your point feed, you get REP for it. Heals, Revives, Resupplies, Kills, Captures, Hotwire Cruising, etc., etc., etc.

Each level takes progressively more and more points to unlock. And the scale is horrible.

If, hypothetically, the first level took 1000 points to unlock, the second tier took 2500 points, the third 5000, and the fourth 10000. But the ridiculously high point requirements is only half of why it's so hard to reach the next level. The other half is that dying resets your progress to the next level and so when you're on the third tier going for the fourth, you absolutely cannot die for what feels like an eternity.

Thankfully, Visceral had the sense not to put extremely important perks on the fourth level. It'd be nearly impossible to reach so people would rarely get to use it. And the people who do manage to get it would have an easier time stopping others from getting it. In fact, I praise Visceral in this aspect. Nearly all the perks are equally worthless.
