Been playing a couple weeks now and haven't scored a kill yet. (Well there was one but he was practically dead when i came across to him so i don't count that).
In 1v1 situations where we're both fresh and roughly equivalent tonnage, i pour on the damage and they just don't die. and no i'm not missing my shots. i'm actually very accurate. but the rate at which i'm chewing through their armor seems really slow. and it feels like the damage they do to me is no more than what i do to them and sometimes it feels much less. but still i'm the one destroyed. pretty quickly too. the most frustrating part is that this also happens in situations where i'm fresh and they're damaged and/or i'm at a much higher tonnage than they are.
i don't need to be good at a game right from the start and when i first play a game. i don't mind a huge gap in skill level between myself and more experienced players. except when a game's mechanics leave me confused as to how to close that gap. The confusion leaves me frustrated. I like the mechwarrior/battletech franchise, so i want to like this game too. but i'm not figuring it out. which is killing any enjoyment i could get from playing. Which feels like a waste of time.
So I leave it to this forum- what am i missing?
