So I was discussing with my friend on the state of how the game is progressing. We had agreed that deflection is a big thing in the game currently and needs to be introduced to the mid to lower tech players. I recommend adding in R10 to some hulls that have not yet received it such as the Mauler or the Kodiak to bring these hulls in line to the current changes the game is experiencing to better prepare some players for obtaining End game content.
Stepping stone hulls need to be buffed in some way so players entering the game have a chance to catch up in a meaningful way other than throwing hundreds upon hundreds of dollars. I know we are still addressing rebalances to build times, but we also need to rebalance some hulls themselves to better increase quality of life of the lower tech players.
Don't use Level. Use Tech when describing players. Level means nothing, its all about tech.
