Here’s a not-so-hypothetical question for you: If you were playing a highly competitive multiplayer game, would you want a rating concerning your skill and gear to be displayed on screen at all time? In other words, would you be cool with the game telling others how much of an elite — or noob — player you are?
Das Tal is trying out such a system with today’s patch: “Added a ‘power level indicator’ before your character name. It goes from C (complete newbie) to A++ (top 5% of all players). This indicator is an amalgation of your play time, equipment quality, ability levels, and [kill/death] ratio.”
The patch also changes up the experience system, adds rested XP bonuses, introduces an event calendar, and allows players to create up to three characters per server.
Das Tal got a nice injection of funding earlier this month from investors that will allow the team to complete the core game.
