Legacy Mode - Skill Level Caps

#1Keebs05Posted 3/4/2011 12:12:06 PM
I've gotten the message "Your boxer has reached his skill level cap! For now..." but so far, I'm still stuck with 220 levels available and I've got a huge chunk of XP just sitting there and I can't use it!

How far into the game do you need to be to unlock more skill levels? I'm ranked number 7 in the heavyweight category. Do I have to move further up the standings or something?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

I'm in the same predicament. I'm ranked 9 right now, and have been maxed out for 5 fights. My record is 36-0.

Does anybody know when, or even IF, you can finally increase the number of total skill levels?

Im currently at 43 wins age 31 and stuck at level 220 also. Will update if there's a change.

I retired at 52-0, GOAT, still had the 220 cap.

Pretty sure it was already stated that this was intentional.

You're only given a limited number of "skill levels" when building your fighter.

why does it say "your at maximum...for now"?then?

Im not as far as you guys yet, but im guessing it says you're at your maximum ''for now'' because your skills probably start to decrease at a certain point in the game after you have been around for a certain amount of time.

Just a guess though.

Don't forget to apply the boosts that you may have unlocked for your fighters athleticism....The stats will stay 220/220 though..

The 220 is a cap ea has placed in the game so players online wont get so built up right away completely destroying any chance a new player has at getting his cab good. Why there is one in legacy, im not sure.

Im sure ea will release a patch a few months from now to raise this cap to 250 or something but I doubt they will every raise it so high that every skill can be 20.
