The spread of points changed this week. Why?

It should be why the points became so strange this week?

Hello all,

As you have noticed, the spread of points achieved across problems in a level changed this week. In the past, the total points you could achieve in a problem set per level, per week, doubled with each level. We have changed that to a more linear increase across levels. The end result of this is that at the higher levels you can achieve nearly the same amount of points per week as you used to, but the points available to lower levels have nearly doubled.

We did this to make lifetime points less biased to those at high levels. The way leveling works, is that no matter what level you are at, there should be questions that are difficult for you, and people who are pushing themselves week after week, regardless of level, should have a point system that reflects that.

@Harshit Kapur For level 5, the points became \(125, 160, 160, 180, 180, 230, 230, 300\) this week, but it used to be

\(80, 125, ... 300, 500 \) (sorry, I forgot the middle part, but we don't have strange numbers as points such as \(160, 180, 230\) before, (but I don't know about Level 4) Zi Song Yeoh · 4 years, 6 months ago

@Zi Song Yeoh \(100, 125, 125, 160, 160, 180, 180, 230\) is what it shows up this week. I have no idea about what it used to be earlier ... Harshit Kapur · 4 years, 6 months ago
