So I have been replaying the game and am currently to the end of season two - where you play as Caithe. The stealth mechanic was an interesting change of pace BUT it was implemented with too much fear. The whole instance should have been if you are spotted restart from last checkpoint. Instead I could just 1,1,1,1 spam basically everything.
And this is the whole of the game pretty much.
The new strike missions are a nice addition, as an idea to increase the overall player base skills - but it should be done on a bigger scale - as part of living world. It should be possible for you to at least not complete it, if not fail a story mission instance. Only then will people try to learn the game.
Disclosure: I haven't played much of icebrood yet but nothing I have read or watched so far suggests that this has been fixed
P.S: I know this has been whined about to death, but might as well add one more voice to the group
Edit: edited the title a bit
