I think it’s the most annoying waste of time to quick join or create a game and find low rank players thinking they can play above their level. Don’t waste others people time when you can’t carry your own weight. Other players are not here to carry you for vast XP gains. If we fail we get a crap XP gain. As I approach my 3rd level 30 I’ve found this to be a general good rule.
A couple of friends and I ran a heresy mission with characters that just barely qualified for Malice just to see how far we could get. I kind of felt bad for the one guy that joined to fill the open slot, only to find a bunch of guys in prison garb with white weapons spending literal minutes taking down a sole crusher.
It was kind of amazing. Everything that wasn’t trash was a miniboss.
Private games when?
Also, Malice can be easily completed with a team of L3’s. Level doesn’t mean much at that stage.
Also, you don’t like carrying? Dragging underskilled people through a map they’re clearly not ready for makes me feel like a boss.
This is just means your the underpowered player that needs carrying because you suck at the primary goal of the game Teamwork. This says you communicate poorly and use your ‘skills’ and level as an excuse why you don’t know how to be a decent human.
Damnation is usually pretty solid. Heresy can be rough and where you’re more likely to run into people that need to be carried. It’s hilarious that they’ll backseat game while downed or captive when you pick them up again and again.
Heresy feels a lot like Champion did in V2 back before Cata was a thing. Malice tactics work until you try to use them without the team being around, so a lot of people just use Malice tactics all the time. Makes for a frustrating mix of players sometimes.
Then obviously you don’t understand that teamwork then. A excellent team carried you and you seem incapable of leading or guiding a less experience team into understanding. So that just tells all your skills, Leadership and empathy are not among them.
Really depends on group comp and pugs. Me? i stick to malice and lower. I don’t have the best reflexes and don’t like playing a Mop. think i just hit level 25. I know i don’t have the skill level for the constant barrage. A couple of brain bursts here and a few zaps there. The rowboat of melee Push > Slash > dodge rotation. That’s good. With pug groups, you get too many chads that actually take perks for coherency and then spend their time off in the middle of nowhere to be recovered at the next check point.
