I may start using an alt as well. The game/matchmaking really should be tiered throughout and not just up to 10k WP. And yeah, I was going to see about tonight's planned battle and then bail afterwards so CCP really does need to explain how they're going to fix this cause I'm pretty solidified in dropping it for good after tonight and don't plan on being back.

I find that arrangement will work against the idea. You ever get the feeling in some shooters that you're hounded? Like you can be in a group of 4+ people, with 2 in front or back, but when bullets start flying, you become the main target and are the first to drop? Or when someone does get behind enemy lines, you're the first/only one they drop before they get killed despite a bulk of your team being there too as if they're being ignored?

Yeah, that's how I feel in this game. They'd ignore you and I'd still be soaking up bullets. I'll be on shortly after 9 once I'm done watching TVD.

I am trying to like this game as well but I feel like I spend too much time navigating menus trying to get stuff right than actually playing the game....very complex game I admit

Yep, once you get used to it it's fast to switch things around or make new fits, but the first 2-3 weeks the menus were pretty overwhelming,

Also, once your fittings are created and your SP allocated, you don't spend much time in the menus anymore. You will only access them to quickly restock some fittings or to occasionaly level up one skill.

Gonna stick with my new character for now. Academy matches feel 'right' right now and I'm hoping by the time I graduate from them, CCP has sorted out the rest of matchmaking. Also allows me to spec again, sans the large SP & ISK pool of my other character. Played my first match as Medic and thinking of sticking with (13/10/1).

EDIT: Also, before I start speccing points, anyone want to give me some guidelines/directions for a Medic build. I'll most likely be going AR-SMG like the Starter build so I just need some direction in other stuff (suits, modules).

Shield tank, run an injector and repper, you'll stack WP like crazy, once you upgrade suits you'll be able to carry more equipment of your choice, damage mods on a logi are absolutely beast when you get proto, half the people out there choose logi strictly for the proto killing XD, good games earlier slash!!

Someone mentioned 10k was the threshold for Academy, right? I've done over 1k in each of the 3 matches I've played so far. I'll be amongst the wolves again soon enough :smileysad:

Some of those matches we played I'm surprised we won cause I'd think we were losing and then the next time I look, we've evened the score or have pulled ahead. Same for the matches I've played on my new character: they end up being close/tug of wars. I want more of that.

Had my best match ever. 29/16/8, over 2k WP. However, now my lifetime WP is sitting at 9,737. I'm out of the Academy matches after another match. Gonna see if I can translate the fun I've been having over to my main now.
