Players attempting to go full light side or full dark side might be reluctant to make even one choice that differs, afraid those 50 LS or DS points might stay on their character’s permanent record forever. Others might have heard that there is a 10,000 point cap that makes it impossible to earn additional points, thus making Tier V unattainable if you have ever deviated from your path. Have no fear! Making the occasional choice of the reverse alignment should not affect your score in any significant way.
It is true there is a 10,000 point cap. However, each time you make a choice after that it simply deducts points from the opposite spectrum. This means that by making more choices of your alignment after reaching the cap, you are able to effectively erase all record of previous adverse choices. It is quite possible to reach 10,000 points by your mid-40′s, so as long as you stay near the light or dark path you should reach Tier V easily enough.
