Too bad they still haven't fixed the servers so matches lag worse than anything ever made.

Its actually more likely celebrating Chinese New Year this weekend. Though, I don't know why they wouldn't just come out and say that

It's double XP right now, I bought the starter pack which includes 20 days of XP boosts and I just bought a double XP cube for 1 match. I play a match and still only get 159 XP! I get that without any boosts at all. Is the XP doubled in the background or what?

Yea, when I sent the suggested story to the newshounds. I told them that it was probably for Chinese New Years (which is 8th Feb) and that it was "fitting that the double XP was ending on Monday 8th Feb 12pm EST since China is 13 hours ahead of EST time, it will be the 9th Feb for them".

Lulz, yea not sure why they didn't just say that on their Facebook page.

@HingedMonster - The XP is not doubled in the background.

Just tried a match for the double XP weekend, and it was completely unplayable. Still lagging, freezing up, people dropping out.

The game was not lagging for me for the most part. I did lag at one point when I was playing with a friend who was downloading something on his laptop.

I went from level 17 to 25 today, that's around about 28,000XP. I reckon I'll finish the game by Monday since I've a Aegis Wings session tomorrow.

I use Ultimate Eric with XP boost active as well as having Gold VIP, I was getting consistently 366 to 408 XP per match during this double XP event. I was finishing each match in 45 to 50 seconds, just build an army of Ultimate Buckies on Twin Peaks.

Either play on solo or co-op, not PvP. You can get half the XP you normally get when you play on PvP custom matches.

was making 1971 xp per match, with VIP and x3 cubes, letting it idle for 30 minutes before beating my dummy. Easy Peasy.

Ultimate Eric boosts in game XP. I have gold VIP, boost cubes and can finish a match in under a minute. I get 159XP on 3v3 co-op. What the hell!???

I'm playing on Xbox 360 and I have Gold VIP.

@WSJ Osiris - I've only clocked in 11 hours in the game according to it's stats page. You should definitely get VIP and an XP boost, which only costs 75 diamonds for 1 day. My friend who was level 26 at the start of the day yesterday had played the game for 36 hours with no VIP and sparingly used XP boosts.

@Halfblind Cloud - Everything gets doubled. I was only getting 180XP with just Gold VIP and XP boost using Ultimate Samson (and not Eric) on Solo Skirmish 1v1. Now I'm playing 3v3 Co-op and getting 366 to 408XP in 45 seconds.
