I was going purely on
Daniel GameloftYou can expect the update to be available by the end of the week. :)


Granted, there was no further news after that, and we could have endless discussions on when the week starts and ends :D

I wasn't starting a discussion. I was making a statement of fact. No reply to that statement was neccessary.

I didn't say you were, that was the royal we, not we as in you and I. 

That aside, after last time I'm sure you will understand why I take any of your "facts" issues on behalf of gameloft customer services  with a hefty pinch of salt.

I should add  "no reply to my question was necessary " from yourself as it was very much a question for a member of gameloft customer support, which last time I looked, you are not. 

Merry christmas

GL did you post to these players that they have bought a sm with a warning that this sm can only be upgraded to your player lvl. Seems like GL you are not filling some customers discloseure info about buying.
 

The squad xp cap by player level is only for manualy adding xp. A soldier can rise above this with ops or base defense. A 7* soldier earns 10K for every base defense or 6* op, 15k for 7* op, or you can speed run xp with domination or raid ops.
 

Well I still don't understand my squadmates only can go as high as my base level and the level of the squadmate. That can be increased by a boost percentage dependant on the base armor I have selected. My base level is 74 with all level 7 squadmates and a 55% base armor boost. Yet I see players as low as level 60 with squadmates with more power than mine. This shouldn't be. It may be possible to get more base armor boost but harm my ability to attack other bases. I have no idea what your talking about when it comes to increases with ops.

When your base is attacked and you have a "Successful Defense" your SM on your base get XP that can upgrade them higher than you can manually. Same goes for running ops, when your SM sent out succeed they get XP that can upgrade them higher than you can manually. It's also possible the level 60 you mention is in a clan with highly upgraded HQ's which also impact base SM levels.

Normally if a level 60 player has a 7* in their base you are thinking they can only upgrade it to that level 60 defense. You would think because 7* currently max out at level 75 then a player who is prestige should be able to have stronger 7*. What I was trying to convey is that a level 60 player can only manually add xp to squadmates up to level 60 (where a prestige can manually go to 75) but they can use other methods to get their squadmates to the same level, just with more time and effort. As for your defense your seeing you possibly could be forgetting about flags. It is very common now to have +15 defense flags that add 30% or more on top of that depending on the flag and the circumstance of the attack. You may even have one of those flags and will not see this yourself unless you click on the test defences button and view your squad from there (again depending on how your currently equipped).

As for ops (spec-ops) the xp they pay when you win is squad xp that adds to the squadmates that won the op.

as an example. this is a level 66 player. 

a successful defence gives all my sm's 10k XP

Image

So although, I could only upgrade my SM's to level 66/75 using Xp and gold, you can see that two of them (the two I had the longest) were at level 69, purely from the XP gained from base defences.

level 69 to 70 is about 1.5m xp, so 15 successful base defences and my level 69's will be level 70.

(this is why for players below level 75 its worth keeping your sm's as upgraded as you can so you benefit from teh bonus xp that you couldnt normally get)

Your math seems a little fuzzy. 1.5m (1,500,000) divided by 10,000 equals 150, not 15. Just a few more successful defenses required for that "free" SM upgrade, lol.
