Hi All,

We raised the max level to 50 a day early =)

Tomorrow we will give out Energy rewards for those who skipped ahead in levels.

Thanks all for your patience!

-Aggwynn and Glimmergate

Update by SpiritWind May 13, 2015: in the Hub you will find all of the levels posted with their xp. There is also an Information Nugget on this also.... The Hub is in Discussions top section. Thanks!

I'm a LEVEL 50!!!! wow, I need to get a life...:rolleyes::o:D:cool:

Mahalo TeamLava for keeping me so involved in this game that I haven't been able to focus on other things, like taking over the world and enacting my maniacle plans to force everyone to wear feather boas and miniature hats.

Summary from Increase
Level cap = 50
Energy reward = energy crates (chop for 50 energy). 1 crate for each of the following levels that people jumped to/past.
Royal building max = 43
Wall limit increase = 140
Field increase = 60

This thread (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?65891-New-Levels-31-50-and-the-XP-needed-for-each) has the xp needed for each new level

So, just checking. That means there's a new maximum and we still can't level up beyond 50? I had thought they would fix the level problem so that people can continue to level up to infinity (and beyond!). This is a big whoop of nothing.

Sorry about this! You won't see your energy bonus for leveling. However, as Aggwynn mentioned, we will have quests tomorrow that will reward energy for those who skipped levels.

I didn't see any extra energy or fluctuations, Level 50 now. Looking forward to the bonus quests for those that skipped levels. I'm assuming these quests will only be available to those level 31 or higher?

Seriously, thank you TL for increasing levels, walls and royal buildings allowed. I haven't hit any of the limits except levels, but I know many of our neighbors and friends will be so excited. :)

Also, thanks for the alternate reward tomorrow for those of us who have been level 30 for a long time, and bounced past the individual level increases at 90 miles an hour. ;)

I was maxed on farm plots at level 30, since going to level 50 I was able to add 9 more. No more resource or crafting buildings than what I had before though. Not sure what the new Royal building limit is, don't need anything more at present.

The list is off a little for me. I'm at level 45 now and by the list I would be level 44. At 116,463 I am halfway through 45.

PS....there could not have been a worse time to switch from my host job to farm supplier now that everyone is getting free fertilizer and seeds. I'll give it a shot though.

Level 50, new item, new limits, and quests coming - it's like Christmas. Thanks so much, TL. I hope everyone just enjoys it for what it is, and doesn't spend any time working out what they think they should be getting (although it appears that bird may already have flown the coup!). This is fun, and much appreciated.

I'll second that. I do hope that when they come, they have nothing on them. I do not need anymore trees, or rocks, or mushroom patches/rings, or any type of flower/bush etc. What I need is space. However, I suspect that in any case, if/when, new bits are released, we will be paying a very high price (money, lanterns and god forbid - expansion permits) for the privilege of development. I don't think there will be any gfc in castle story. Happy playing. Cheers.

Hay NZ, I'm with you. In relation to the increase, I am just happy that there is an increase. If there is something extra tomorrow then that is a bonus. If only the bonus could be fragments or shards, hee, hee, hee. Kind regards

02-19-14, 09:12 PM
Hey OH. I had to alter the post you quoted - the 80 energy very quickly refreshed to forty, but I'm still pretty happy about it all. I agree; those darn shards are elusive, but it's kinda nice to have a quest go on so long, and I'm in no hurry to upgrade that maze to something I don't find at all attractive. Roll on Friday (our time!)

I am so delighted that there are new levels that I'm going to the back yard to make snow angels.

FYI - I was assessed as level 41 with just over 90,00 XP. Love having new targets to work toward.

Don't mean to seem like a grumpycat, but the next item to be fixed should be the issue with gems - please have a double approval system so that we do not waste or accidentally use our gems. This would be REALLY appreciated.

Yep, I'm not actually too worried. Do get frustrated from time to time about the fragments/shards etc, but that is life. Am happy to plug along and see what comes.

I do believe that Griselda is on a holiday from my place, somewhere with the baron. She, nor the gate, have given me anything of substance in the last few days and her greenhouse has been idle all day, as if her servants have gone on strike. But I am sure she will return one day and give me a few red and blue presents. Until then, oh well, what can you do. Yep, roll on Friday morning, approx 12 hours from now, give or take, for us in the lower part of earth. Cheers

I'm totally psyched about the mermaid pond too! I hope there's a quest for it as I don't have anywhere near 160 gems right now. Mermaid scales are definitely my most difficult resource - took me ages to do all the quests that have involved enchanters essence lately!

Is there going to be a mini quest for each level we are skipping? So level 34 (me!) will get 4 tasks and someone on level 42 would get 12, that sort of thing? I can't wait to find out - if it's anything like the other recent updates it's gonna be awesome anyway. :D

I too lost my level increase energy reward. I remember seeing 91 and as I started collecting next thing I knew it was at 28. I knew I hadn't already collected over 60 things that quick, lol.

I also lost out on collecting from an adventure due to the increase! I was about to collect, got the level increase notification, and then the adventure was gone, with only the option to start a new one. There was nothing in my inventory to show that the adventure was collected :(

That's what everyone says, yes to the boas and no to miniature hats. I don't get it. Mini hats make your head look bigger. Bigger heads make your body look smaller. Hence mini hats are better than dieting.

I wonder when the energies are going to be released? I'm scared to collect from any buildings or craft anything until we find out about the new goals and mermaid pond.

02-20-14, 10:34 AM
So, just checking. That means there's a new maximum and we still can't level up beyond 50? I had thought they would fix the level problem so that people can continue to level up to infinity (and beyond!). This is a big whoop of nothing.

Why so ungrateful?

Your mini hat logic is impeccable! You could combine this with an "eating plan" and sell this for millions! The mini hat diet.

As to collecting on an update morning, I figure whatever I do, it will be unhelpful to me later. That way I can be pleasantly surprised. :)

Right. Don't need any of that. I'm happy for others who are happy. It just didn't apply to me, and I thought we would be able to level up once they adjusted things. When it became obvious that they hadn't fixed the issue but just extended the problem I wanted to ask why. It's not the end of the world, it's just not the big whoop I was wanting or expecting.

there is no time limit on the crates - just on the goal, accept them and then use them when you want to

The crates are given for levels that people skipped when TL raised the level cap. You skipped level 33, so you have a crate for doing that.

-YES! It's real! Congratulations to everyone that leveled up! Thank you for playing Castle Story! We really enjoy working on the game and we hope you're having fun :o
-Energy Rewards: Available to players that reached Levels 33, 36, 40, 45, and 50

You don't get the crate for each level just on set levels, but now the level cap is increased you should get a full refill each time you level up now

Hey ghjvcucjb hope you don't mind but I hijacked your first post to add a summary of the changes. As of now we just need someone to post the new wall limit :)

Oh with the new level cap and the question as to why there is a limit, i think there was a post way back when from one of the staff members. They were saying that at that time they were only up to about level 28 in terms of designing quests and items. So I'd say the cap is there as a place holder to allow them to design stuff for higher levels.

That is a mute point though, as whilst we were stuck at level 30, the quests kept coming, so now the max level is 50 there is no longer a correlation between quests and level, so setting a new max level has no purpose.
I am happy for the recent surge of interest in the game from the developers, after what seemed to be a very sparse period last year.

Look in your inventory. That's where they go.
Then you can take one out when you need the extra boost in energy.

Are you talking about your energy cap, or your level cap?

Energy cap is max 40 from level 30 onwards, even for those that just jumped to level 50.

Level relates to your Xp. What level does the star on the top left hand side say? You may not even be at level 30 yet.

Should it give gifts for every level you jumped? I only got 4 gifts and I jumped to level 47

rar745
02-21-14, 01:06 AM
I'm about 1/3 past level 40 at 86,288.

Directly from Maguar's spreadsheet: 10.0 = 1,491 _ 20.0 = 11,210 _ 30.0 = 38,750.

Approximated from this thread so far: 32.5 = 47,998 _ 40.3 = 86,288.
41.0? = 90,050 _ 41.7 = 95,233 _ 45.5 = 116,463 _ 46.8 = 124,941.
47.0? = 125,300 _ 48.4 = 134,360 _ 49.3 = 140,323 _ 49.7 = 142,504.

My estimation of when these leveling up milestones will occur: lvl-xp, 10-1500, 20-11000, 30-39000, 40-84000, 50-145000.

Incidentally, after some curve fitting, it is clear that...
the curve from Level 1 to Level 30 is exponential (specifically an x^3 function),
while the curve from Level 30 to Level 50 is linear (more-or-less).
So that's why earlier predictions of where we would all be when the cap was raised were so far off.

Therefore...
Between Levels 1 and 30, if you play the same amount every week, it will take more time to get to the next level each time.
Between Levels 30 and 50, if you play the same amount every week, it will take the same amount of time to get to each level.

The crate is the reward. Instead of getting a full energy recharge on levelling up we got the crates for each group of levels we passed. It's great as we can choose when we want to use the energy. There has been no change to the actual energy gap.

Not for every level. It's per jumping past/up to certain levels.

It was a great gift and I'm glad to have it! At the same time, I feel it's important to point out that 50 energy for 5 levels is not the same as 40 energy for each level. I know, I'm being ungrateful and picky, but there's no real reason to have maximum levels. Lots of other games don't have maximums like this.

The energy cap is not being raised.


Hey. Tell me how to quickly raise. Energy is accumulated for a long time. My friends per day rose from 25 to 47 levels. What to do?

People who jumped several levels in one day were stuck under the old level cap. When you reach a level cap, you continue to gain XP, which count toward increasing levels should the level cap be raised. Thus, when the level cap is raised, people who have accumulated XP automatically jump to the level that they have earned.

if you did not jump levels, then you were not stuck under the level cap. You will continue to level up normally until you reach the new level cap.

The crate is nowhere to be seen and the goal has gone, too. This also happened with Level 36. I'm not touching the Level 40 goal until I know what's going on... :(

If you chop 50 times for 1 energy, you basically just end up chopping nothingness... Umm it takes 1 energy to chop the crate.... So .. You see where I'm going with this ;)

I really appreciate the energy crates and think storing the energy in crates was brilliant. I have read through this thread and apologize if this has been suggested already but I would like to suggest that all energy given when we level up is given in a crate we can chop and use when we need it. It seems like I always level up when I am rushing or not when I could really use it. It would be great if we could save the bonus energy for when we need it. Just a thought.

When you level up you get an energy refill. When they increased the cap from 30 to 50 a lot of people jumped from level 30 to higher levels (including straight to 50). All of these people missed out on the energy that they would have got when levelling up. What TL did was give them the energy crates depending on the level they jumped to. It didn't cover all the energy they would have got but it was a great gesture. If you've been levelling up normally you'll get the normal energy refil but you won't get the crates (because you didn't miss out on the energy refills).
