I only needed like 1100 points the day before the update. I know my fault for not finishing it out. When I logged onto the site the update starting updating without any prompting. I was highjacked. Then after it finished and let me log on my 1100 went to 500,000 What is the formula for that? I finished all of the new quests; lost alot of crystals in the process too; played hours of games;reached max level on all the new hidden object scenes and I'm still 191000 experience points away from earning the next level up Wheres the fun in that? Its boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had finished level 90 (I think it took me something over 100,000 points) and was working on level 91. I remember that I had close to 100,000 points and the target was around 220,000 points to achieve level 91. Then the latest update came in (V1.81). I was blown away when I noticed that NOW it will take 2.299,550 XP points to reach level 91. And I shudder to think that what level 92 will take. And right now you only earn about an average of 500 XP points for each game you do. And that includes HOS game or the secondary games. At rate, it will take months to earn enough points to move up to the next level. Like someone else posted, it looks to me like a way to force the player into buying more and more crystals. I'm not going to do that. I'm waiting for the next update and if things are not corrected, I will use up all of my remaining resources and then uninstall the game. And will NEVER play anything from Boom Zap. And probably Big Fish.

Keep posting folks!! We know there was a glitch at certain levels that needed to be corrected, & that the adjustment for that was intended, but what we are trying to determine is if there is a glitch in the new experience numbers as well. By posting at all levels, we can determine if there are any mistakes in the new "formula". These new numbers simply make no sense whatsoever...

It has, but your post is still appreciated, as it tells us that the experience meter is the same for all at any given level. 3 Level 61's confirmed at 215,240.

Reminder to all: Please post your current level, and the EXACT experience number needed to reach the next level. And thank you for helping with the analysis!

Thanks Everybody. I have been so busy the last few days I haven't had time to even check in.

I will try to do more with the numbers tomorrow and see if I can figure out the formula.

Okay my partner is at level 50 and needs 86,690
His game crashed on the other 'puter and he needs to restart. Do you want the level 1 - 2 numbers too or just 50 & over?

At level 62, need 233,680 to next level.

Agree with other posters. If this outrageous level-up requirement is the same after the update, and if other frequent glitches aren't fixed, I'm over it. Not fun anymore.

FYI I've never spent a dime on this game, but have bought all other Boomzap games for iPhone and enjoyed them. Thought this game was a nice diversion while waiting for other games from Boomzap, but these "glitches" (intentional or not) are turning the fun into frustration. Plenty of other games out there.

Thank you Daisy! Since Zevah has so kindly agreed to do this "analysis", I suggest we post any numbers we have access to. The more data the better.

And thank you everyone. Please keep posting!

I am having a hard time finding a pattern LOL!

In the lower levels (thanks for those numbers!), we start with 250 to get to L2. Then add 50 for a total of 300, to get to L3. Then add 120 for a total of 420 to get to L4.

L1-L2 = 250
L2-L3 = 300.

Difference is 50. 50 is 1/5 of 250 or 20%.

L3-L4 = 420

Difference between 300 & 420 is 120. 120 is 40% of 300.

L4-L5 = 540

Difference between 420 and 540, is again 120. 120 is approx. 22% of 420.

So if it is a percentage factor, it doesn't make a lot of sense.

So, I'm still working on this. LOL!

Zevah, thank you again. Please do not feel pressured, and take your time with this. In the meantime, folks, PLEASE KEEP POSTING THOSE NUMBERS. So far, I'm hearing Zevah say it "makes no sense", so we need more levels, more numbers! Many thanks to all who have posted and those who continue to post

That's because the explanation is flawed. Even the explanation for the levels below 50 doesn't match the numbers posted here. This has been questioned at length on the BZ forum and never been addressed by BZ. Without the rationale used by BZ (which seems to be proprietary) or the right explanation, it won't make sense.
