The XP Boosters are Forced and Wasted.

[ Edited ]

The code for the Collector's Edition activates the 48 Hour XP Booster and if you activate the Champion's Pack from GameStop it activates the 24 Hour XP Booster just because you "downloaded" the costumes from the Mythological Heroes Pack and Leonidas.

 

So basically the 24 Hour XP Booster gets wasted because it's forced to be used, and half of the 48XP Booster is wasted. By right you should have 72 hours of XP boosting, but the 24 Hour Booster gets cancelled out completely.

 

This isn't even mentioning the 24 Hour XP Booster that we were supposed to get from playing the Beta yet it's nowhere to be found. That should have been 96 Hours total with all of the boosters.

 

When the ROTW items are unlocked there are boosters in there as well, but they'll all be wasted with one code activating them all at once and it's not like the doubling stacks.

 

*UPDATE*  *****************************************************************************

 

I just noticed that the XP Booster is not working at all even though it is active. It's not doubling my XP.  Thanks for nothing Santa Monica Studio!

what if you activate the 1st one, then 48 hours later the next one?

 

i dont care about the xp boosters anyway. imo the leveling is part of the fun :3

XP boosters weren't even needed. Level 30 stayed as the cap, which is actually pathetic.

I think they should give us a free 48 hr xp for the confusion. Because I did the same thing. I downloaded both codes not knowing the xp boosts would activate. Since they don't stack I wasted one of them.

Also we were promised two 48 hr xp boosts. Not a 48 hr and 24 hr one.

It activates them as soon as you use the code for the armor from the Mythological Heroes pack and the King Leonidas skin. You also have to activate the booster from the collector's edition because you can't play without the online pass and they're all activated under one code.

 

I think putting DLC under the Services List is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. It's just all disc locked and the only thing you're downloading are the avatars, the dynamic theme and the soundtrack.

Oh and BTW, that 48 hour XP booster for the collector's edition was only 24 hours. What a ripoff. The description on the websites say 48 hours. The piece of paper in the case says 48 hours. But when you actually download it, it says 24 hours. So, if you actually got a 48 hour XP booster please consider yourself fortunate. Cause as of now, this is HUG problem that has yet to be addressed by SSM.

yeah I started by doing my gamestop code then realized that my online pass needed to be put in and since it was all combined I ended up losing those hours as well. with that being said though I'm kinda happy I'm not getting all of that double xp because it is easy enough to level up and I don't wanna have all my champions at the max within a week.

I got one that was 48 Hours but that might have been the GameStop XP Booster. The other one is a 24 Hour Booster so that was probably the Collector's Edition one. Regardless one of them is being wasted and the beta booster is non-existent just like the Sword of Artemis from ROTW and that relic everyone was supposed to get that was a pyramid shape with the eye in the middle. Whatever happened to them?
