Too late to start this?

10 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

 

This game looks like a ton of fun and I'd like to give it a solid try. I am however a bit of a completionist and I'm worried about the servers shutting down, or bugged trophies preventing me from getting 100%. Would I be making a huge mistake in starting this? How difficult is it to find a crew to do CQC? Are community events being regularly done again? Is there anything else I should be concerned about?

 

Thanks in advance!

In my experience it's never too late to jump in. The only issue would be finding a dedicated group for CQC since that mode is all but dead right now. As for community events they are back and running for the foreseeable future!

there CQC is Easy to boost, IIRC ya just need 4-6 people - Only down side., is That (when i last played 2 years ago) There were some "Elite Sweats" that hunted booster groups in the Pvo Side of things

Only glitched trophy i came across was the one for joining a Guild/group - but the boost group that i was apart of didn't have this issue - it hasn't resolved for me yet how ever

I'm a completionist too and was asking myself the same question. Two months later I got 100%, no problems. Community goals just started again and will be running for 2 years. Moreover, they are planning to release an expansion soon which most likely will have new trophies so now is a good time to start. For CQC you need only one dedicated partner to grind exp with. To get the wins for modes you will need 3 others but it's a quick and easy task, no grind involved. If you are going for 100% it might take you 400-500 hours so keep that in mind. Since the game doesn't have any meaningful content, most of your time will be spent grinding some thing or the other.

 Didn't know ya only needed 1 person for the lv 50 grind that's good to know,

Bonus side, unsure if it's been fixed. but some of the PVP win Trophy's are glitchy in a good way, Like, I got win 25 matches after 3 matches  0

Yeah I think they changed that. Problem is that the lobby is open for everyone and pvp isn't as dead as some people think. Especially now that you can queue for CQC right from the main game and start a match with 2 people. Some randoms have millions of exp and won't leave you alone, which means sometimes you will have no choice but to go offline and hope the lobby is free next time.

This is very reassuring! Thanks a lot for the reply. This lays my fears to rest. I'll chip away at it over the next few months with a break for Cyberpunk!

I hope so! Worst case I'll just trudge through it I suppose though. Do you lose any points by losing, or is this purely an upwards grind?

Uphill grind.

Think after 4 hours i was about lv 6?  Trading wins lol

Think I did full ranking with two teams of four doing capture the flag, connecting at the same time to be put into the same map.  I worked out (at the time) capture the flag to be the best exp/hr, one person capturing the flags per game, then alternating. But then this was back in 2017. If you were exceptionally good at Death match you could get a better exp/hr I think, but CTF was pretty much steady xp.
