The class grind is terrible.
If Fatshark is so damned adamant about having you grind the same thing over and over and trying to make the 200-500 concurrent players of Vermintide1 play their game for 2000+ hours once more then this is the right way to do it. It will however not give them the amazing playerbase that they would probably want to have.
If Fatshark is so damned adamant about having you grind for the classes you want to play on level 7 and 12, then at least give us an alternative rather than have force us to play 30 hours just to unlock the first classes.
- Give us a CLASS token instead which are locked behind the level 7 and 12 and not a predetermined class; which enables us to use it up and pick what class we'd rather pick.
- Let us pick the class we want to play with the characters at level 1, and then let us pick another one at 7 and 12.
- Or lower the level requirement heavily.
There is no game design in the world other than Korean and MMO design that warrants or justifies having to gate content behind an artificial grind through the whole game; Only to do the whole game again only for you to be able to finally enjoy the game. You would have already burned yourself out by that point and when did a human being ever loved being forced to do something they don't want to; only to do it once more to enjoy it fully?
Oh, and the crafting and inventory system is horrendous on v2. Traits aren't as interesting or useful and it's EVEN MORE OF A GAMBLE IN V2 TO GET GOOD TRAITS, unlike v1 that let you keep traits before rerolling.
So yeah, if Fatshark is only doing this for their old playerbase then this is completely the way to go.
I have never been so burned out letting the loot system in the first game have me finally get Drakefire Pistols after 40 hours only for me to quit afterwards. I shouldn't have to play something for so many hours only to get SOME FORM OF ENJOYMENT out of that terrible grind that only rewards you upon winning without it taking 40+ minutes.
