It was do-able.
So I started playing and kicking ass and got down to about 12000 left when I found a defender to play with. We hit Liberty Quay in IP and started kicking level 29's butts for more xp.
I check my xp about 12:30 AM, I need 113 more to level. W00T!
In front of me, another group of about 6 level 29 Ink men, all minions.
"In for a penny, in for a pound" I think as I jump in and start slashing away.
Next thing I know, the Defender is held.
So I keep hitting. One down, one more to go!!!
And suddenly, I'm held, drained and pummelled to death.
FORTY-THREE XP SHORT OF LEVELLING.
ONE MOTHER-EFFING KILL AWAY.
I went to hospital and killed five level 23's and levelled up, but it was just SO freaking disappointing.
ONE KILL AWAY FROM LEVELLING...
