Levels

Does anyone know how expansions or new content will be released? I am unable to find much information on this. I would like to know if the level cap will increase. Coming from Eve Online, which I still play, the advantages of not having a level cap increase with expansions or new contact is enormous. Going beyond the basic leveling content, keeping the “old endgame” content relevant with the new makes for a much more diverse world. While a challenge for a level based MMO, keeping all of the content you worked so hard on relevant is an advantage to the alternative. I do not enjoy a new level grind every couple of years to get to the content I want to play.

    It'll most likely be 5-10 levels every few months, no biggie.

    Nooo, that would be bad. I think level increases should come with big expansions, not quarterly updates.
    We don't need or want another WoW with 120 levels.

    What if the expansions are quarterly though?

    That would still be bad. It means that in 1 year from max level 50 you'd be at what? 70 to 90? That's ridiculous.
    In 2 years you'd be past the mid 100s. That's just a bad idea

    Major expansions take a lot of time and generally bring big changes and/or a lot of new content to an MMORPG. Even Blizzard needs 2 years to release an expansion and 80% of them are trash - what do you think they would look like if they had 4 months?

    We don't need that much more levels every expansion. Even if you increase the level cap by 1, just make meaningful changes to the game and have a reason for the increased level cap. Just increasing the max level and adding some new mob spawns to make sense of the increase is a bad design decision and shouldn't be done in MMORPGs anymore. Blizzard has been doing it for 15 years and their game only functions because people who have sunk 10 years into it don't want to stop playing it and lose 10 years of their life.
