I realise I’m going to get a lot of flack for this post. I know that many veterans think the game is too easy (I’ve seen many complaints about it) but the game as it stands is crushingly difficult for new players even on the lowest difficulty.
I have been playing for the last few days so while I’m by no means an expert, I’m not totally green. Most of my characters are in the 5-to-10 level range and between 100 and 200 hero power.
However, it seems that the difficulty has been upped quite a lot for the full release to the point where it’s far beyond what a group of fairly new players can handle, never mind people who are brand-new to the game with only level 1 characters and default gear.
Most of the groups I’ve been in today have had people saying they’ve never won a game and it’s not hard to see why. Brand new players really shouldn’t be losing 5 or 10 games in a row even on the lowest difficulty, it’s just going to cause them to stop playing because it’s really not very enjoyable.
