I just started a new game in A12-2 this morning, not sure what to think, I know this game is a a lot about the endgame but I think they need to look at the leveling progression, example follows. Started game this morning set to hard, slow exp hard enemies the works. 45 mins later i am level 6 i have a small base, starter HV all good, EXCEPT i have all T2 weapons, epic sniper, epic drill, Laser Rifle, Honored with Talon and Polaris, and everything in the factory ready to make a T3 level 12 HV including 4 small bridges and 2 small matrix. i think the exp part of leveling is a little fast but not to bad, but the ease of access to so much high tier gear and equipment so early in the game sort of defeats the purpose and game mechanics of leveling in the first place, kind of like a i win button. The only thing I don't have yet is a set of heavy armor bad luck with the RNG gods i guess.
