I found an old blog of GirlsAskGuys on top 5 users with greatest MHO %
^ if you click on above link, you'd find that the no. 1 user have just 16.64 MHO%
But nowadays an average user has around 12-15 MHO% while insanely helpful people have 20+ and they are so many.
Furthermore, all of these users have now 20+ too
So, does the system changed? Why was it so hard back then?

It was called "best answer" then.
10 points was given to the person who received it. The person who chose it, got no xper points for doing so.
Best answer did not have to be chosen, giving them was optional (a lot of people did not pick a best answer for their questions).
They felt no need to (so best answers, we're a rarity)- you felt even more honored when getting them because people hardly ever used that system.
Best answer could also be changed. (You could choose someone, then moments later you could change it to someone else).
So, receiving a best answer didn't mean you'd keep it.
The new system is better because it enables users to pick a best answer. It sends a message prompt when not chosen. Both users benefit from best answer which makes people more likely to choose one for their questions.1

Calculation method was different... It used to be (MHO count)/(Opinions Posted)
now it is (MHO count)/(Opinions posted for a question that has MHO selected)0
