Releasing level 200 as a froob and having us wait 2 months for SL is insane. SL is content that is equal to RK, and mercs and other high level RK content will still be done with SL in the game. Even if SL is released with the level 100 cap, people won’t be getting any further than schoel or MAYBE ado, other than super hardcore people that are progressing with an org of people.
This is a progression server, NOT a classic server, and people need to stop thinking this server will stop before SL. This server will have expansion parity with RK5, and assuming people want to spend 75 levels doing borgs and RK missions to get from 125-200 is asanine. There is no decent xp during those levels as a froob and it’ll turn into live server with people logging in to do dailies and logging back off, because nothing else is worthwhile to do for xp.
While I agree with the power creep that happened with AI, the real problem is just AI armor. It shouldn’t be the be all end all armor for most professions in most slots. The problem is not the content. SL has great quests and amazing progression zones, AI has awesome playfields and cool raids to do with your orgs, LE gave us alien missions and battlestations, and LOX gave us most endgame content that we have ever done.
We need to stop pretending RK content is all there is. I love RK content, but I’ll be damned if I’m gonna spend 75 levels at borgs, or doing RK misisons which are just a complete waste of time at that level. And then to not have access to ALL the other content this game has to offer, that would be ridiculous.
The reason the content wasn’t being done is because nobody needed to do it. They didn’t need the loot, etc. Here on this server people will be doing endgame RK content, because nobody will be level 220 soloing AI raids and getting 300 AI armor. People will need Azure, and people will need HI, etc. This is just a fact and it won’t change by allowing us access to more than half ot the game’s content.
