Hello! I’ve been playing GZ with my grown up daughter online every week and we’ve racked up 60 hours. She’s risk averse, I want to leap into the big fights and we’ve hit a happy medium. Despite the constant crashes and the very samey bunkers, we’ve enjoyed it - the Ticks can absolutely **** off though We’re pretty bad but surviving, we got into a fight at the airbase with what seemed to be dozens of machines and got mullered. That was about our level.
We sort of stumbled into the Alpine Unrest DLC which we had installed after doing about 1/3 of the map and the more linear mission structure and challenge has gone down really well (although I miss just wandering through the Swedish countryside, and the toxic gas seems really arbitrary - how are they hitting me with it at long range?)
The big question is: When we’re done, is it worth heading back into the main map? Will it seem like busywork after the Apocalypse machines and people? Does the main game change as a result? Will Rivals fix that, or just make the busywork harder? Should we try FNIX Rising, or will we need to build up to it? What does everyone think?
Any advice or opinion gratefully received. We get a few hours every week and I don’t want to waste them in any way.
