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

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:

Congratulations to our forum moderator Drool for achieving the rank of Supreme Jerk on Wasteland 1.

The biggest failure in the recent past is this assumption that the audience is not smart.Too much effort is being spent making it dummy proof..all the clues are being held right in front of their nose.The exploration and journey is the reward

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).
