    Default How to reach Rank 50?

    I've done Elite Pass on all events in the campaign now including the 10 A+-races. I'm halfway through Rank 47 but the problem is that EPs for the events are really low now! I did a Zone 130 on Sol which took me a good 21 minutes and that only gave me 7400 EP. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to gain EP effectively to reach Rank 50? There is a trophy for it plus you unlock the Pirhana Prototype which I would like to race online with. Which Rank were you on when you had Elite Pass on everything?

    I was wanting to start a thread about this too because I've ran into the same problem, pretty annoying.

    If you don't mind sitting around for a while then an exploit on Sol that allows you to respawn over a bunch of boost pads over and over again still exists, JabbaJaw has a video of that here:

    My rank actually goes down after some doing some events, weird. Gets annoying after a while seeing something like rank 46 then after the next race you're back on rank 45.

    It takes a while to accumulate. I let it run at nighttime when I wasn't playing (will the PS4 overheat?). I don't have it yet, still waiting, but on 2048, you have to start at rank 22 or so. I also don't think I did that until all my progress was lost once, but my memory is bad now so I'm not 100% sure

    The best I way I found out with grinding to rank 50 was to play the Capital Reach A+ Challenge. It's 10 laps, features lots of boost and weapon pads for the XP, many chances to barrel roll...
    With AG-Systems Speed, avg. XP per race was around 6000. Other option would be to play Zone on Empire Climb with AG-Systems Prototype, but IMO, you can earn the same amount of XP in the challenge in a much shorter time than by playing one round of Zone. It might take some time but playing the A+ Challenge is still faster and more efficient than running Zone Mode.

    Also, I was around Rank 46-47 with all Elite Passes. Your ranks may vary depending on your performance and attempts on 2048's Campaign. If you're stuck on something you may have more XP than someone else when you finally pass the event.

    I learned about the Sol exploit but I ended up just finding a Combat event I was good at and venting my frustration on some silly Qirex craft for a few hours every day.

    The A+ challenges may be more efficient but require too much focus for such an extended period (and the AI get hella cheap in those things too). I found Combat events to be a good, less stressful alternative. I was getting maybe 1,400-1,600 XP for a 2 minute 30 second event where I could just have some fun and not have to worry so much about perfect lines.


    Basically, just find something that's easy and doesn't give you a headache, and have some fun. Practice a bit, do whatever.

    Addendum

    OH, the reason you're levelling up so slowly now is that you only get the pass/elite pass bonuses once per event clear. That's a max of 20,000 bonus XP you can only get once and once you get those medals you can't get those XP bonuses again. That's why it seems to low now. :/

    ^ I thought that you only got the pass/elite pass bonus once per event in the Vita version as well. Is part of the issue the fact that the Vita version had the online campaign, so extra XP could come from there, while Omega has only the single-player campaign?

    You do, 10k XP for a pass and another 10k XP for an elite pass. Total of 20k XP per node. The leveling has been scaled so it works with just the single-player campaign, don't know if the remaining ranks is intentional or not but it definitely seems like a mistake.

    Finally got to rank 50, just left the game doing the sol exploit for an hour and I was there, so not as bad as the Vita version at least.

    I remember reading the devs talk about it whilst Omega was in its beta stage, yes, the need to grind the last 2-3 levels is intentional. It's clearly not as bad as on the Vita (never played it but apparently single player caps out around level 22?) but, yeah.

    Go have some fun.
