Beta Cap

[Updated] The point of this thread is about speculating as to what the level cap, if any, will be in the beta. At around 0:45, we see a player that is level 14; however, this does not apply to the beta as there is no "Beta Build" illustration in the top right corner. At 1:31, IGN indicates that we can change our armor colors with shaders. The Guardian outfitter shown at that time does require one to be level 20 to have that shade. However, [b]in the Alpha we did get access to shaders[/b] from a different vendor--particularly, factions, for winning many crucible matches. In the Alpha, I had a Future War Cult shader. Also, at 0:55, the hive ogre/knight has a question mark in place of where one would expect the numerical value to be. This may be an indication that there is a level cap for players. It's important to note that even though we may have this low level cap, we may still get access to items that were unaccessible in the Alpha. For example, we could not use the third tier(Rare--illustrated by a blue color) or higher tiers of weapons/armor. [b]Rare items may have had their level requirements downscaled in the beta.[/b] [b][i]CONFIRMATION[/i][/b] of Beta XP being acquired by level 7 player: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-qI0zvh8zE [Information provided by Remmus] I do realize the relationship between Bungie and the number seven; however, this is probably not indicative of the exact level cap. From most indication thus far, information points to a beta cap at a low level. [i]We should know for sure during the IGN Beta gameplay being livestreamed at 2 PM EST.[/i] *Tyger(See below.) suggested that we should be able to get two subclasses per class. In the Alpha, we were allowed access to only 1 subclass per class. The second subclass unlocks at level 15--perhaps this is the point of level cap. Of course, it would be very exciting to this community to not have a level cap at all. My interpretation may be different from your own--what do you think?

  • Pretty sure the cap is 20, Why else would they tell us about shaders in a video about what not to miss [b]in the beta[/b] if the level cap stops us from using them?

    • For testing purposes I would hope this isn't true. How could they balance high level gear and tweak xp gain with such a low cap? Plus we can explore mars and venus and I don't think the vex and cabal are low level enemies.

      • yet in turn I saw a video on IGN channel showing someone in beta getting exp, who was level 7, keep in mind like other rpg if a enemy is to low level they wont yield exp. This was most likely why he didn´t earn exp.

        • This would suck, we should at least get access to other subclasses

            • Why would the beta level cap be 7 if the alpha level cap was 8?
