Another one of the PS+ newbies, and one that kicks himself a little for not jumping on Alienation at release (bought the season pass, hope that helps a little).
Quality should be rewarded, and Alienation is a quality game. Of course you lot already knew that
For once I don't feel cheated by the RNG, there's a good amount of drops, even on rookie, and the difficulty scales perfectly. I love the "oh shit" moments, when you're facing a mission goal defended by 30 enemies, incl a sentinel, and the screens flashes: "horde incoming". Swiom or sink, good stuff
Question time:1) Joining randoms is ok?
I've played solo so far (bio), but do see people in sqauds from all over the world. Is it considered rude to join randoms? Not invasion, but finishing the mission with them
I don't have a mic, but I will play for the team, ie. revive and think before I pop my abilities.2) Good loadouts?
After the first 25 levels, I plan on going with Xeno rifle (small clip, great range), Devastator and Flamethrower (superb for bugs and hordes).
Any combos I'm missing, or enemies that might prove difficult after level 30 with my setup?3) Hero levels?
I know that once I hit level 30, I'll start getting hero levels, but what's the purpose of those?
Do they grant extra bonuses, better wepaons, ramp up enemy levels, something else?4) Is boosting or glitching an issue?
I'm in the silver league with around 45mill xp. I've played mainly Rookie, so it seems about right, but in my leaguye there's a guy, that went from 100mill xp yesterday to around 950mill today
He can do what he wants with his game, but imagine getting a promotion will be difficult on gold level with just a few of these people around
