To be honest: This sounds like a problem to me and I was completely unaware of it. Mostly probably because I rarely have the time to play past level 15 to 20 (and quite often die around that time due to my own recklessness) and achieve later levels usually with built-in game debugging commands that allow me to cheat.
So you can imagine how surprised I was about hearing about this as I ever had noticed this problem in all the years 8-^
So I'm very curious to hear more about it (and I will spend some time over the weekend analyzing the experience curve of the game). Please tell me more about the level range at which you usually get stuck.
IMHO this is a rather serious problem as there probably are several causes:
- not enough deeper dungeon levels to gain enough experience
- high level monsters granting less experience than they should
- balers being too valuable for their fighting power
How do you feel about these points?
