Ahh...$NORM, as I've seen it, is the average amount of exp nodes earn so that confused me. 2,000,000xp is reachable, at least for vroom who's already half-way there ;). I see limiting level by nodes written even worse though as that would make strong silent types seem like they're at a much lower level then there xp suggests (xp however earned is always deserved, IMHO).
