Double XP in a nutshell

Hello ladies and gentlemen.

As you might have heard through our various Battlefield channels, we will be running a Double XP event for PC this weekend.

If you are wondering how exactly your Double XP scores get calculated this weekend, just check out the full run down right here :

So, imagine you have just finished a round with 2 kills and 3 deaths. Your total score on the scoreboard is an amazing 200 points and you finally start feeling like a pro. The whole round, you played as an Engineer. What you will see right after the scoreboard switches to the End of Round screen is that your Engineer symbol will flash, adding a total of 400 points to your engineer kit. This is your original 200 points multiplied by 2.

After your normal points have been doubled on the Engineer kit, it is now time for the game to count your ribbon score. You have received the Squad Rush Ribbon and the MVP 2 Ribbon. The Squad Rush Ribbon adds 200 points in itself and the MVP Ribbon adds 400 points in its original value.

You will first see these points added in their original values. They will then get doubled as “ADDITIONAL POINTS” (600 new points). Your sum total for this round would then be (200x2)+(200+400)x2=1600 points instead of the 800 you would have received on a normal weekend. Easy! :)

So in short, the scoring would look like this:
Original End of Round Score: 200
Engineer Score: 400 (200 original points + 200 for Double XP)
Squad Rush Ribbon: 200
MVP Ribbon: 400
Additional Score: 600 (Your ribbon score once more)

It's not "XP"
It's "score"

We're not playing some japano-MMO, but a first person shooter

wouldn't it be:
Additional Score: 1200 (Your ribbons x2)

?

Quite good idea so the newer players can catch up a bit to those that play from launch

Hey I have a question. To my knowledge, this is the first multiplied XP event since I have started playing - but occasionally I will see the "additional points" being added to my score at the end of a round. What is that from?

I always thought the additional points was said simply because i scored too much for it to tally in the minute between rounds. And it was just hurrying things up.

Lame ass initiative. Hate to be negative, but what's the point in giving the player base these extra points? it'd be better if you release a new map, or a a new weapon set, FOR FREE, as a gesture of goodwill towards your customers.

agreed

aye, good question. i've always wondered
once i amassed a lot of points for each of the 4 classes (and i made at least 7 kills with the primary weapon for each class so i get assault/carbine/LMG/sniper ribbons), got flag attacker, w/e, just plenty of ribbons, and the additional points was maaaad much
"Hi, how are you?" "High, how are you?"

I'm just happy he showed us how to do the math. It's good to know the guys at dice know how to double something.

Does does vehicle and unlock score get doubled?
