    @Chris @DarkStarr

    I have compiled a report on my theoretical study into experience attenuation. It is my hope that any players interested in the topic will have as much fun learning about it as I did. I also hope that this report provides some useful insight on how to further improve the attenuation system.

    Without further ado, here is a link to the report.

    @Mimner Can you allow anonymous viewing on that, without having to login to Google?

    Also - does death (decay) factor into attenuation in your study? I don't think it currently does... meaning, if you're on the way to being attenuated from exp gain, or are already attenuated - and you die and res - your exp. loss doesn't factor in.

    I think it only goes off gains, and losses are not part of the equation.

    This is no small contribution, as you hoped in your paper. It is a very large contribution and an interesting read. Thank you for taking the time to do this. This is what passion looks like. :)

    The file sharing settings are set to 'anyone with the link my view - no login required.' The model does not take experience decay into consideration.
