Congrats. I don't think I've seen the rank past Sergeant or the one after that.

Damn, how long would you have rest if you went UNC to full?

I never got much past Major with playing and resetting. This was pure Crumb's Basement Cheese.

183, I believe. Sadly, there's no "You've reach the maximum level" message on the radio, just the standard "not enough XP".

Hm. That's a good question. It's what? 5 minutes per HP? I think Fingers ended up with just over 500 HP, so... just under 2 full days in-game. 2500 ticks; 625 presses of ESC in the world map, 10000 on a 4-per-1 interior location.

I wonder if Saddam Hussein will be making a comeback in WL2 to give us a celebratory salute when we promote a ranger

Maybe that was the basis for Saddam's style... He was just a huge Wasteland Fan :lol:

Congrats, I would never have the patients to pull that off.

Fun fact: There's no post-combat XP reward after reaching Supreme Jerk. That part's just completely gone from post combat.

You just have to find a way to keep an arrow key depressed for a few hours while you do something else. It's not like the double experience each party member gets when two characters use a knife, key, or rope on an unbroken skylight during an encounter.

Well, probably closer to 15 hours, but yeah. I used a few coins to wedge the left arrow down while I went to work, and then again when I went to bed. I was pretty leveled when I did that, but there's not really anything keeping you from doing so earlier on. With enough luck, you'd only have to face a single combat to pull it off (Cutie).
