December 6, 2021: 3000 XP Club Rare AirHell Harvest harbingers have Travail headleading with Solitar, DeJagen and Jodos closely pursuing. Randiv, Zpo and Caruso compete for strong finish. Dr_Sci, Black Knight, Bianchi and Starcharger round out the top ten.
XP, or experience points are gained by playing in Mega or Ring games with bonus points for finishing. You can get points by leveling up in a solo game or placing in game art or battle poetry contests too. DenverChief and PolarDucky are now listed in the XP top 300. UndeadBones, one of the best players in the game, has under 1000 XP at 848. Dejagen entered the 1,000 club this year. Jodos is about to pass Ultracorps legend UC_Rommel at 1113 this week. Caruso could pass game expert Kira as early as next game. Randiv and Xenofruit are looking at the 2000 club which Zpo recently joined as only the 10th player ever to achieve this lofty goal. Sentrion, HCobb and 15 game winner Travail are over 2,000. Farstar, Gikiski and Dr_Sci are new to the highly elite 2,500 level. All-time top three Habig, who has 2866 XP could well hit 3 in 22. Solitar tops the command with a stratospheric, extraterrestrial gastronomic superlative of a number - symbolizing solidity, endurance, perseverance, loyalty, ability, stability, willingness and unsurpassed dedication to the Service. Hats off to Solitar and Ultracorps! We recognize each and all of you for your sacrifice and service to the galaxies.
