Hell I thought the 6X XP weekend for E3 2010 was super duper, but 8X XP is enough to make my anus pucker!  EPIC has just announced that they’ll be running 8X XP to celebrate the 4th of July and Canada Day (whatever the hell that is).  They have also setup Horde matches to only have tickers for waves 1-9 and only boomers for waves 10, 20, 30, etc..  This XP overload will run today from 9AM EST – July 6th 9AM EST.  EPIC is trying their best to regain some Gears of War 2 gamers with these XP give aways, and it’s definitely working on me.  For those of you that are dumber than a bag of hair, here’s a chart of how much XP can be earned across the game types:

* Annex: 1000 points = 1840 XP
* King of the Hill: 1000 points = 2000 XP
* Submission: 1000 points = 3040 XP
* Guardian: 1000 points = 5600 XP
* Execution: 1000 points = 7840 XP
* Warzone: 1000 points = 8000 XP
* Wingman: 1000 points = 9440 XP


Casual- 800
Normal- 1200
Hardcore – 1600
Insane – 2000

This is awesome.  Sign me up!  Level 100 here we come.  You’ve been 8X XP’d…
