Hey guys, it's Bluzy! And I haven't posted in a while, so it's good to be back. (Been away for the past 2-3 months). So yeah, I'm glad to see all the negativity sparking up in the forums lately, and of course you guys. Anyways, before I get carried away from the main idea of this topic, it's about how hard it is for newbies to start in this game. Even I who is an experienced player, so to speak, is struggling as well. (I re-rolled because why not?)
So here are the important points that most of you already know that I'll emphasize:
- It's nearly impossible to acquire reliable items. (It's possible though, but it's an extremely slim chance)
- The level required to unlock modules is just ridiculous.
- Match up is unbalanced. (I'll show a series of photos of proof later)
- Transforming/fusing is a little expensive.
I'll tell you a little background of my experience as a "newbie". In the first times I've started this re-roll, I quite enjoyed it. But once I reached ranks 13 and up, s### went down. I started facing people with mechs.. like these:
My energy gets easily drained, and I'm basically a sitting duck.
"Oh Bluzy you scrublord, put on energy modules!"
I would but I don't have decent energy modules, let alone enough module slots.
Progress is also a little slow. I pretty much lose every battle I enter and rarely win. Campaign is starting to get harder, and re-doing missions is boring. However, I still am trying to progress, and even though seeing the problems above, I still enjoy my re-roll for some reason.
But here's a major problem. Actual first timers will end up quitting because of the stated issues above. So getting a bigger playerbase is not likely until they do something.
PS. The league boxes are nice, but a more balanced match up is even nicer.
