Hello Mobsters,

We have been receiving some reports of the KingPin Activation Point System not being 100% clear. We have reworked the KingPin FAQs both on the website and in-game to explain it better.

Please also find the information below:

“Activation PointActivation Point is the monthly premium (in KINGPIN Points) required to remain at the current KingPin Level. At the beginning of every month, you will "pay" this upkeep cost to remain at your current total KingPin Level. If your KingPin Points are less than the upkeep cost, then you will drop a level. If you have upgraded (increased your KingPin level during the month) then you don't have to pay any upkeep cost for the subsequent month.”

Let me take some examples for us to understand some scenarios-
So let us say that there are 2 players at KingPin level 5, player A with 30k points and player B with 25k points. The Activation cost for the level of KingPin is 27.4k.
Then after the beginning of the next month (assuming upkeep cost is applicable for both)-
Player A will stay at level 5 with final points=2.6k;
and Player B will downgrade to level 4 with final points=25k.

However, currently for Level 8, the Required Points are 150k and the Activation Points required are 171.4k. In this case if your points are let's say 160k at the end of the month, then as 160k <171.4k, you will drop a level and go to Level 7. However, as 160k>150k (required points for level 8), you will again come back to level 8 and your final points will be 10k. We understand that this exception at Level 8 where the Required Points are less than Activation Points is causing some confusion and hence we will be reducing the Activation Points with one of the next releases.

In case you have more questions/concerns, please feel free to share them in this thread and we can discuss/look into them together as it may help others understand their issues as well.

Hi,
I am a daily player with 7 acconuts. I put a ticket into the help team. I'm still waiting for a full reply. Basically I have 2 ccount where the Kingpin points keep getting reset once an event ends. I reach level 2 Kingpin then an event ends and I am back to xzero. As I said earlier I am a daily player at least twice a day.

Why does this keep happening. If I earn Kingpin points from each event, then I will always stay at level 1 or 2

Hi vdubber!

Unfortunately I can't get too much into details here on the forum since you have privacy rights (which means we can't mention IDs for example).

Could you please send me a private message here on the forums with more details such as your in game ID, any currently open ticket numbers and maybe a few screenshots of your Kingpin UI (such as your current points and point log)? We should then be able to discuss more freely about this specific issue.

Thanks in advance!

Why not make it easier on you and everyone else and stop with the activation cost. Oh I know, then you won't get the money from gold upkeep.

Can we please just get a break down of what does what for points?

What does a epic boss kill produce for points?

Opening a box? Helping in raid boss?

Most people who track their KP level or work on leveling would LOVE to know just what gets them the points they need to level

Thanks!

I have reported this before: if you have multiple accounts on one device there are weird things going on. Not only with kingpin points.

A few things that pop up from the top of my hat:
- energy has disappeared in account 2 when you have used energy in account 1.
- during SA the ingame message system is mixed up: you see messages in account 2 (in syn 2) posted by a player of your syndicate 1 in account 1.
- also during SA you see the popup (when you are matched in acc1) appear in acc2 but totally messed up. Your syn is in position 2 with a wrong name.
- again during SA the endgame popups appear multiple times (once for each account in the same syn).
- one more in SA: you see "tallying results" in acc 2 when the game ends in acc 1.

Did way over 41 hits in one battle and got no where close to 1,000 KP points. Also how do you get 41 points in hardcore boss event when max is 40. So ya, things are really cleared up. Thanks

Hmm... how does one get 41 points in HCB? :confused:

Edit: maybe it is points(K), as in: 41K (or 41M?) maximum points per day?

I'll ask....

10 points per gold spent?

Is that 10 points for every 1 gold spent? So I spend 25 gold and I get 250 points? Or is it each time I spend gold I get 10 points.

So I refill deploys during street assault for 25 gold, do I get 10 points or 250 points?

Thanks!

Which boss in raid boss counts? Any boss or just big ones? Does the hardcore boss get you the points for eb as well, since they both have 150 bosses? Do we not get points for legendary bosses? Boxes that say sorry u get nothing get more points than those that get prizes? Guess ill start doing box events now since thats all I get. Do we get points for anything over 41 ow's in battle?
