Just wondering what you think is the cap for EGO Rating...I first thought it was 5,000 but I have heard something much higher than that...what do you think it is?

The only thing higher EGO would get you is you would unlock another usable perc slot. Otherwise EGO level is pretty worthless right now. IT's not like the level of weapons that drop according to your ego level are any better than they were when you were ego level 10. About the onlything ego 1000+ guns give you are all the mod slots are unlocked by default so you don't need to grind salvage.

What did that have to do with the OP's post? I do agree with you however, maybe at higher ego levels (4000+) or when future DLC comes out, you get more bonuses from lower rarity weapons. I'm at 1505 now and I've gotten maybe 1 or 2 greens with synergy bonuses when usually it's only on blues and epics. Only time will tell, no one knows yet.

I heard a 6000 cap somewhere. Your wrong about the weapons. Everyone on here can compare guns that are the same with a low and high ego lv and u will see some differences in dmg. Keep in mind leveling in this game is different, so 10 levels is almost like 1 lv in other games, so you may keep a gun for along time before u find one at a higher lv with more dmg. I would say about 200 lvs minimum before u see much difference in stats. This is a good thing tho. Who wants to get a nice gun and mod it, then find a better one the next day. This way u can get some use out of it before u trade up

If you check the forums properly Sledge announced the cap to be 5,000.. Which will increase as soon as they want it to be..

5,000? Try 10,000. I had a live chat this morning with a GM because I needed to get my Marin Data recorders fixed, and when she fixed it for me I asked her what the level cap was and she told me it was 10,000!! Here's an excerpt from the chat.

[09:44:34 AM] Patrick ***** : And speaking of XP and EGO ratings. I was wondering what is the current EGO Rating cap for the game? There is a pursuit for reaching EGO Rating 4000 but I have seen in a video of Sledgehammer being interviewed by Gamespot I think before the game came out and he had a EGO rating of 5000 I think...
[09:45:15 AM] GM Kiwibird: I think it's at 10,000.
[09:45:25 AM] Patrick ***** : O.O holy shtako

It was confirmed prior to launch (Source: http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?11096-Max-EGO-Cap-at-launch!-Official&highlight=maximum). Now with the new episode pursuits and vehicles levels increasing EGO, I'm not sure how the EGO cap is affected though.

EDIT: It's certainly not 10,000 though.

She 'thinks' but didn't 100% confirm, I'd wait until you hear the official word which has already been given out by one of Sledge's post.
