I started playing about a month and a half ago with a friend, we've both stopped playing. I have 4 Tier 4 ships and more or less every game runs the same. Either we steam roll the enemy, or we get steam rolled. Having T3s and low level players on your team up against T4 level 50s is pretty much an auto-lose, without getting into what happens when you hit a premade. I can have what seems like a decent game but come out of it with only 2k xp. When I need 55k for a useful module that's 28 games for a single module when you need 17 for a T5 ship (that's 476 games btw). Not to mention that required OBs are spread out around a profuse collection of ships, many of which I don't want to play and getting 300xp per game just for having them in fleet means I'm not getting those without even more grinding.
I actually like the game. However, after many, many weeks of playing almost exclusively the enjoyment has gone, I see more and more of the flaws in the game and, honestly, it's just not worth my time grinding that much stuff when all I want to do is play my Dreadnought.
