Game Basics: The Experience System
The Matrix Online features a traditional RPG experience system where you gain XP
as you defeat enemies, and complete missions and objectives. The Matrix Online
offers a mission system which rewards your mission team for completing
individual objectives throughout the mission as well as a larger XP payoff when
you complete the entire mission. Other ways to get XP include battling exile
gangs, searching out access nodes, and crafting.
The experience system also supports teams so that you can go on missions or
fight gangs with a group and the XP will be shared across the group based on
their contributions. This system will also split XP when people outside of the
same team work together. This means that you don't need to worry about somebody
stealing your XP – if you have done 90% of the work you will get 90% of the XP
when the enemy is defeated. This feature also meant that people often form
spontaneous teams when a powerful gang appears.
