Ended up picking up the Champions Edition for all the characters, really enjoying Loba just for getting easy loot quickly as well as Rampart and Horizon.
The difficult has properly spiked now though, we're getting murdered within 5 seconds of dropping down. We were hoping after a few nights of being destroyed we'd get bumped down to the noob leagues again but no such luck. Still enjoying it though, the movement and look of the game is fantastic, love that you can go into the old maps as well in the playlists which is something different, although we have no clue where we're dropping on the newer maps haha.
Really lovely to see more people getting into this - I've been loving playing with forum peeps. Winckle and I got a couple of decent wins over the weekend, too!
Very happy to play with anyone -I'm not very good but I'm pretty knowledgeable about the game's systems if you just want a walking encyclopedia to wax lyrical over the various situations where you'll want to choose an L-Star over a Volt.
Also, Photek, when you get to level 10 join the GRcade club!
