ET:Legacy introducing a new metric, known as “Skill Rating”.

What are XP?
Enemy Territory implements XPs, which measure player scores based on specific actions, such as kills, construction, or revive. They are also used to control the various skill levels, similarly to a RPG. While not part of the original game, the ability to accumulate XPs indefinitely, as known as “XP save”, has been a popular addition in many mods. We all know it: players crave for their XPs. Players accumulate XPs like coins map after map, and they love exhibiting XPs on servers to show how hard and how long they worked to earn them.

The downside of XP save
However, XPs don’t give any indication of the real global performance of a player. At best, they merely give a hint about the time the player has played on a specific server. Saving XPs also create some imbalance by enabling special abilities given by skill levels permanently, such as adrenaline for medics which directly leads to the infamous “Rambo medics” that everyone hates. This has never been accounted for in the original game balance, where XPs were reset at the end of matches or the end of campaigns.

With Legacy mod aiming to stay close to the original game design, it makes sense to not encourage the use of XP Save as so many mods do.

Starting from the next 2.76 release, only the XPs earned in the current map or campaign will be displayed.

Instead of the total accumulated XPs, we’re introducing a new metric, known as “Skill Rating”.

The Skill Rating has been gradually implemented in the past Legacy release, with the final version being currently tested on our official test server.
