No, this isn't exactly a newbie question... But I'm looking to get my ultimate dream plane (tier 8 ), and I wonder what's out there in the black? What sort of levels are the enemies? Is there a max to the combat levels?

Absolute max to base combat levels is 50, then +6 for every high risk mission, +10 for max combat infamy, and +?? for whatever you got for killing Santa. I think that's everything.

Is there a "+1 danger level" condition from servicing? If so, there's another possible +5 from that. I've gotten up to level 73 without conditions nor killing Santa.

But it looks like level 25 is the bottom limit for platform combats, so the difficulty isn't going to increase much after that. Seriously, 30 cyclopses aren't much harder than 15.

Thanks. You guys answered all of my questions and then some. But I have to ask, what's up with killing Santa? :shock:

I think you hit a wall at 78.

I've run around in the deep black in the south running combats back and forth between Getty and Luz with the following:
+10 CI
+18 from three high risk missions
+5 Sleigh Bell from killin Sandy-Clawz
+2 Festival Candle from killin hiz little dog too! *cackle*

If it's a 50 down there that should run up to 85, but I only got 78. I'd finish a mission and well golly, the next combat after was... 78.

Deep black isn't between anywhere, it's straight out from an edge. Left of Juliet/A1/Grotto, for instance. And Santa was one of the special Christmas (or whatever winter holiday you'd prefer) combats, and anyone who beat him got a special upgrade later.

Point stands on the 78 wall.

Combat level 78 - completed one mission. Next combat was 78.

Something for a combat jock with the Santa toys to experiment with. Maybe something's hard coded in there.

Completing missions doesn't affect combats waiting to be fought, just ones added later (I just tested this yesterday).

Has anyone ever fought a platform while patrolling at Tortuga? The patrols there are level 30 (nearly twice anything I've seen on the rim), and I've encountered several platform combats at lower levels (got a level 21 Hidden Fleet just outside of Cidade yesterday, and I've seen Hidden Storm at 30 and Two Towers at 31).
