Match making is unbalanced but worse off the fact that I have to hunt for a squad of decent people to play like a team is also problematic. Some other suggestions are. 1. A persistent environment, i.e. no more match making once in the "metaverse" so to speak. 2.) Fleet or faction concepts so like minded players can fly a like minded armada of their favorite ships. 3.) match making that is balanced... I.E. No Dread master team taking on a team of recruits or captains. base a match filter on ships or tech owned and level. 4.) reduce corvettes damage capacity. A lowly corvette should not be able to take out a dread in 3 shots... this also is much to do about the tech on the said vette too, regardless of level, multiple corvettes should be able to at best hold at bay a dreadnought.
The game gets unrealistic for new players and they either push on or get frustrated and leave. How about we turn around some of that frustration into a happy player instead?
