COD4: Call of Duty 4 Beta Level Increase Inbound

The first level increase for COD4 beta participants is coming 09/07/07 at 10am PST / 1pm EST. This increase is will unlock the use of the sub machine gun Mini-Uzi, side arm M1911 Colt .45, clan tags, and the perk Bomb Squad. All currently banked points will not carry over. Enjoy!

"Friday morning at 10 am PDT (1 pm EST) we're going to be increasing the Rank level cap to Level 16. This is going to allow you to rank up and unlock more weapons, more perks, and more features; including Clan Tags (lv. 12). This is the first of several level increases we're going to do throughout the beta, so keep playing, and I'll keep you informed of incoming updates. Thanks to everyone currently playing for the tremendous amount of feedback we've been receiving; Keep sending it, and we'll see you online!"

"The experience points will not carry over, if they did, as soon as the level cap was raised everyone would be right back at Max (lvl. 16) and where's the fun in that?

So you'll have to work your way from Level 11 to 16." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Culture, Xbox 360)

so wait lemme get this straight, their going to erase my level 11 and I have to work back up to being a 16? Or do I just continue on from level 11 to level 16?

You Continue..
The whole reason I included that other bit it to clarify things for everyone. They capped things at lvl 11 but the points kept going and challenges kept getting beat. Completing the challenges is a big boost to ranking up.. Most of us have completed most of them so it'll take a bit to reach the new cap. We were all hoping they banked the points and we'd auto lvl up but that isn't the case. In the end it's not a big deal but it does effect testers so I thought I'd include it.

PS - Thanks to those who approved this.. It took over 4hrs.. I broke it here before the other sites but I thought it'd happen before it got approved.. ;)

Yup yup
This is that other game to get with Halo, Quake Wars, Jericho, FEAR, Half Life and Mass Effect this year and I have 4 more on the fence. I have spent more money this season then I have in 3 years on games or game related merchandise.

I am just waiting now for the game to go live for the morning, it seems to be updated every morning...I wanna level up!

Woohoo. Colt 1911 sounds best of all of them.

Can't wait for the next lvl update. I want that G3, Dragonuv, and M60.

Too bad banked pts don't carry over. I've nearly finished every challenge.

P.S. - I don't think XBL banned anyone. I was just playing, it 12 PM here eastern time, and all I've been able to play with today are either French or British. A lot of the British were talking about deleting the game, because almost ALL of the foreigners got it illegitimately. I wish they would just wait their turn, rather than gumming up the game with their connections.

Yeah, I got the same message....
Problem for me is they never got me a token. According to my profile on charlieoscardelta.com I am in the Beta....but I never saw the email. I have since sent in ,per FourTwoZero's request, my correct info via email last Sunday....still no token.

Oh well...Halo 3 is just around the corner.
