Hi, I’m a former 2.5k rating player. I recently got to 2.5k rating, got drunk and decided to play in T3. My rating has been falling like rain ever since thanks to your garbage excuse for a T3 gunship. This is one of the things about this game that I utterly hate and have stopped playing this game because of several times.
I don’t appreciate being given a pathetic excuse for a ship, a class I probably don’t even want to play, and being forced to synergise the garbage just to unlock a ship I actually want to play. I don’t appreciate being forced to play a 3 active module T3 ship to unlock a proper 4 module ship. I’ve spent more time in this game playing ships I don’t want to play, than actually playing ships I like.
Literally why. Why am I forced to play garbage ships to get the good ones? Why am I forced to grind for hours while playing a ship I hate? Why can’t the ships in this game be a choice, rather than one useless and one good? Why can’t every ship be a choice and an enjoyable experience?
Why’re you so dead set on forcing me to play awful ships and locking actives and weapons away from me, rather than giving me good competitive ships/modules/weapons to play with? Why can’t grinding through your game just be an evolving enjoyable experience instead of being a boring grind fest half the time?
On a side note, why is the scatter gun restricted to T4/T5? As an awful player with terrible aim, I’d like to have this weapon as an option in T2/T3. Why is it restricted to T4/5 players that’re already really experienced with the game and don’t need it?
Please consider remaking your ship ranks/weapon ranks to be more engaging and fun. I wouldn’t put this game down as much as I do if I didn’t get bored. I not only struggle to get my friend to play this with me, but I also struggle to find any kind of fun in T1. This game is extremely boring when everything only gets one weapon option and one module/two active modules.
On the other hand, I find it very hard to bother playing trashy rank 1 ships against opponents that’re R2-3 and have high synergy and green+ modules. I personally find grinding the trashy R7 gunship I currently have to be a very boring chore. My only reward for wasting hours of my life is to be given access to the R8 command ship I actually wanted to play.
Please fix this. I don’t want this game to feel like a chore, I just want it to feel fun.
