And this applies to anyone starting a second character really. recruit and vet are awash with people well over the power cap with levels of 25+ who are just either farming free xp or doing it for the giggles of getting insane high scores as they kill everything before anyone else can get near them.
Now i don’t want to come across like im telling people how to play , you should be free to do what you want imo with the only caveat being so long as it doesn’t stop others from doing what they want.
but here we have a conflict because if you want to actually play a recruit or vet game you need to be grouped with people that have appropriate power levels and talents. and you wont get that in quickmatch.
a new player is just going to find themselves chasing after someone who has a run speed advantage watching them murder everything in the mid to far distance. then maybe getting jumped by an assassin. how would anyone react to a game experience like that?
i know id think damn this is a boring game , refund and uninstall time!
obviously i dont want to stop higher power levels farming these difficulties but perhaps the matchmaker should try to match like powers together a bit more? or give people the choice like the strict matchmaking where they will only be grouped with people withing the recommended level/power for the difficulty.
