Hello to all
It seems to me that I'm "stuck" with my skill points.
I'm playing now for 845 days, and I have 1817 Cases Solved, but it has been a long time since I got my last skill point.
Does anyone has a clue aboot this kind of matter?
I think I should add that I'm not a subscribe member, I have a total 130 skill points, and total experience of 351850 points.
I'll appreciate your help very much.
Respetfully

Skill points are connected to your experience points. You gain one skill point for "x" amount of experience. As you increase in experience the value of "x" increases.

Say in the beginning you get 1 skill point for every 10 experience points.
It then increases to 20 experience points to get 1 skill point. Then it goes up to 40 experience points for every skill point until eventually you will need 40,000 experience points to earn 1 skill point.

**Disclaimer**

I don't know that the numbers I used above are correct, I was just using them as an example to give you the general idea of how skill points are awarded.

Yes, as sleuth Sindy explained, the higher your xp goes, the slower the rate of each xp is gained. By your xp number vs. your cases solved number, I am guessing that you're solving the easier cases? If you want to gain your skill points quicker, the way to go is to opt for more difficult cases, hence giving you more xp. At your xp level now, you'll need a lot of xp in order to gain 1 skill point. I know it's annoying, but it will come to a day when you will have no idea what to do with you excess skill points!!! (i'm not there yet though)

And the players who do have the excess skill points always say, "If there was a way to give you my skill points, I would... but I can't." You can just picture the devilish little smile on their face too... ;)

Your next skill point will come at 360000 experience. I just got skill point 131! Good luck!
