Case Difficulty Levels Explained!

This being a mystery game, it's sometimes tough to decide exactly how much info to give out about the specific rules of the game in the help files, and how much to leave for players to discover for themselves. I've had some questions about how and when players get access to new case difficulty levels that I thought should be cleared up.

In particular, a lot of people have had questions about when a harder difficulty level would be available above "Ridiculously Hard". It's a bit of a trick question, because a harder level is already available and has been for several months. The currently highest level of difficulty is "Almost Impossible", it requires a high level case contact and 4 million experience points (a level nobody has quite reached yet).

Anyway, rather than beat around the bush on this issue more, I've decided to just spell out the rules directly in the help file. To see the list of difficulty levels and what exactly is required to access each one, please click on the HELP link in the lower right hand corner, and click on "New Case Contacts" in the "Advancing your Detective" section.

Thanks, and Sleuth Strong!

I think the table is wrong; beginner, easy and int are offered by my first contact; int,hard and very hard by the morgue assistant; so VVH and IH look like they require the next contact which I haven't unlocked yet. Using your table I wouldn't be offered VH cases yet.

Yep Dr Wátson, you are partly correct. The table is actually a bit of an over simplification.

There is some overlap between the levels offered by the various contacts. So, I suppose it would be more accurate to say that Intermediate Cases require either a New Contact or 100 experience, but I thought that would confuse the chart. I'll revisit it to see if I can correct it without making it to complicated.
