Bad English, I have to say it in advance
First, I help people unlock guardian technology a lot. About 20 people have accepted my help so far. 4 of them rage quit. One of them quit the game forever.
Is the driving system too hard for new players? Is the pylons too hard to find? Is the whole thing too confusing for them?
Somehow I have no problem finishing these. I have unlocked fsd booster, shield reinforcement package and one guardian fighter so far. They took me total 5 hours to do. The fsd took me just 30 minutes. Note that I do these with no help and only text tutorial.
But commanders I helped found it hard to land their ship, drive srv, remember power management, shoot at drones and balance srv. Some of them are very skilled at the game and half of them use large ship.
PS. The shield is useless in most cases, the guardian fighter looks and feels so cool, the fsd booster is so useful I got 64 lighters on dbx and 33 on cutter
