I believe there is a new max EGO cap coming with Alcatraz, but I am guessing that the new pursuits required to get there will be enclosed by the Alcatraz pay wall. If so, then people may struggle to get to the new limit without opening their wallets. Any thoughts on what the situation is likely to be ?

They mentioned the new ego cap will be 6k, which, theoretically, currently is already reachable.

Yeah, the current absolute maximum (see sig) is 6101, or 6066 for those who weren't around for the early pursuits that were removed in Season 1. They have said that they are adding about 200 EGO worth of pursuits with Alcatraz as well, so we might find ourselves reaching or coming much closer to "you can reach the cap without PVP" actually being true.

So if at least 100 of the extra 200 EGO is readily available (as in free content) then the people who clawed their way to 5900 can hopefully get to 6000.

technically ppl who clawed there way to 5900 could automatically be 6000 when alcatraz comes out as you will get the credit you have already amassed retroactively

Supposedly. I'm still skeptical on that, especially with regard to the 35 EGO that is no longer available from pursuits. It depends on how they keep track. If it it simply keeping track of your EGO number and causing anything past 5900 to show as 5900 and have only the effect of 5900, then it seems likely the 35 won't be lost.

If it is a matter of the game not calculating EGO past 5900, then having to recalculate it as soon as the cap is raised, we might find that 35 EGO lost if it tries to calculate based solely on the completed pursuits currently on the pursuit list.

I've asked about this repeatedly for the Q&A, but it never gets addressed.

I am thinking more about the people who have done all they can to get to 5900 so they have very little in reserve.

I was just thinking back to when they originally raised the ego cap and ppl were instantly 5100

Yeah I the hit cap recently and my actual ego is 5901 I'm happy losing that pesky 1 but yeah, when they raise it I guess I'll be needing to grind those pursuits a bit more

What I am worried about, worst case, is that the new allocation of EGO may all be tied to expeditions and such. In which case, it could take a long time to achieve that extra EGO without dollars.

I'm just wonder why there needs to be a EGO cap increase at all

...while I wonder (and no, this isn't meant to be snarky, just an honest completely opposite perspective) why there should be an EGO cap at all after how great it was not having one for a while.

Then came the appeasement of the "I want everything without having to do everything" crowd when it came to EGO . . .

Maybe since we've seen a few changes that were said wouldn't happen,(we all know what they were), those season 1 35 points will be made available in the future. Maybe....
