Kelmo, if you merge this pain will ensue. Ok, first off, I'm glad for the changes. I wish they were a bit more aggressive, but it is progress. Now, for the design flaw. It is apparent that the calculations are being done under the assumption that everyone has time to maximize their gains each day. That is why, in a previous post, Jeremy suggested that training from 90-100 would now be 33 % faster when I'm about to demonstrate that it will actually be slower. The fact is that currently, the wait time between gains from 90-98.9 is 10 minutes. Under the new system, that wait time will be 12 minutes. So, if I am at 90, under the current system in one hour I can gain .7. In two hours, I can gain 1.3. Under the new system, in one hour I gain .6. In two hours, I gain 1.1. I'm not a math major, but I know that 1.3 > 1.1. What if I have three hours to train? Well, under the current system I would gain 1.9. Under the new system, I would gain 1.6. Again, not a math major but 1.9 > 1.6. I would have to train for more than 3 hours per day from 90-98.9 to see any benefit from the increased cap. If I train any less than that, gains are actually slower under the new system due to the longer wait timer. This is the only bracket affected so it isn't a global problem. However, it is necessary to tweak the times between gains from 90-100 or the new system will actually be slower during that portion. Remember, we are trying to make it faster, not slower.
