so after trying a couple times now, I somehow don’t understand the balancing in this game. The first time I played this game back in 2019 or so I failed a couple times at the Hammon’s Cabin, because the enemies were 2 levels higher than me. After many attempts I just gave up and tried again later. Started even a new game and again at the same encounter I kept failing.
So yesterday I finally decided to give the game another chance and loaded my old save file and took a different approach by using the smoke grenade and molotov, which basically helped me dealing damage, without taking any for some rounds. That helped me to barely win that encounter. Happy to finally get passed that, so I might could start enjoying the game I kept moving towards the quest. Got the 3rd teammember the Huntress, so things seemed to get better now. Killed some dogs on the way, which game me a level up to 6. But the very next encounter at The High Road are enemies 4! levels higher than me and I need to get passed them. Is that on purpose? Do I have to sneak by them or really have to fight them? I kept trying a couple times and even though it looked good at first they just outdamaged me.
I kinda feel like the balancing in this game is quite off, or it fails to make clear, that I have to skip a couple enemies here and there to play through this game.
Some clarification would be nice, so I understand what I deal with here.
