Im a new player and ive started playing for about a month.
Ive tried to read abit about the game before starting and one of the things ive read was the called tier rushing from new players.
so far ive max out 18 ships, its not alot but for a new player it showns ive not been rushing on a single line of ships.
i was folowing the advises from the forums and wasnt rushing, i even intended to try and have 3-4 T4 ships before trying to actually play T4. that all changed whwn i reached T3.
this will be just a personal opinion, no blaming anyone or anything.
when i reached T3, even though i read T3 was probably the most compititive tier, i thought that i could still have a chance, but i was wrong.
from orange weapons, max out full purple ships, premium ships, etc, i found as a new player that to even have a change to compete in what was suposed to be a leveling tier to be impossible.
now im starting to see why so many new players go for the tier rush or just quit, just the thought of leveling several ships in T3 is dreadfull.
so ive became a tier rusher to at least try to get to t4-t5, as for pvp, i now only do t2, wich even with those veteran players its alot easier to max out a ship and have a decent ability to fight back.
too bad pve isnt really a suported mode here, at least it would be an alternative to the massive wall that is T3 pvp.
sorry for the long rant.
