Re: revamp of xp cap

assuaging a players size is now not very accurate due to elite mobs and the xp loss once you get big. some players get to 10k with less kills than people that are 15k in this day and age. Good! You aren't suppose to play the code any way. Suppose to play the game. I'm glad we added more mystery to ...
