Please explain to me - what is the point of that? Killing players like PvE mobs? Showing they are OP, because they can kill T1 players? How exactly does it support the player base, when after exactly 2 hours and 35 minutes of game play, new player is facing players that have 1500 hours of BATTLE TIME alone.
There has been a recent trend during RU/EU time for ‘vets’ to drop to T2 an improve ones stats, for fun, get medals. Because of reasons.
It aint right.
What they are fighting there is not only the newest of players unfamiliar with certain game modes, but players who have limited ship slots, crews, equipment. And can not go back to T1 any more. If I had just started a game and hit that kind of ‘vet’ wall I’d stop playing. It ceases to be fun. I begin to think nah this game ain’t for me I must stink at it… uninstall.
Any gaming community being ongoing relies on there being some new blood, and the vets dropping to T2 is killing that. U can easily be in T2 in an hour or so of starting and if I came across this débâcle that many are finding so amusing, I’d quit. I’d have no stake here. I’d think ‘this is what its like?’ and ‘I have four more tiers to go? nah not for me, buh bye’.
Many a new player is just gonna get up and leave and its their fault.
Here is the list of things that you can bring to a T2 game that many of your opponents do not have access to yet.
4th ship slot
Crew settings for each ship
Craftable ammos (R7 I think)
Mk4 passive modules
Mk4 active modules
4000+ battle experience
Fully leveled or premium ships
If you are a ‘vet’ of this game and slot T2 ships for regular pvp, you are the problem. Not Matchmaking, not other players, not devs, its you.
I hear a lot of complaints about the matchmaking being broken but is that surprise when these people start pounding through T2 and it might struggle to make sense of it all.
It might explain the no heal engys, the rushing tackler captains and the oneshipstevies.
Its easy to see that some of these players might be trying to get away from a T2 stompdown but have never had the chance to learn cause they got pounded in every game they ever had at lower tiers. Spawn, die, repeat is not a learning process and at least two of the things on that list were not around when these ‘vets’ had to go through their T2 training.
Little boys in big tough ships.
I know for a fact that T4 and 5 games from EU perspective have been pretty active for over a year.
Ideally we’d all be there having one big party battle.
Outside of dreads an tourney I never really touch T3 as this has been my attitude toward that tier for some time as well, to be constantly rolling through there with an orange and purple fleet is almost as bad imo. However furthering that down to T2 is low, really low. There is simply no excuse good enough to explain it, it is beneath contempt.
I’m sure if any of that annoyed them ill be found in game and blown to bits, but at least ill make em do it upstairs.
