After a few weeks of further PMGs & a lot more players joining the UGVM syndicate. The game is getting easier to play, not because we are any better (albeit maybe slightly) but mainly due to research you can unlock upgrades to your weapons, learn new skills & upgrade your agent chip.
The first attempt at a map was very painful but now we can easily complete a map with no difficulties especially if we have a full roster of 4 agents only taking 15 minutes.
In fact yesterday Toby & I showed some amazing skills to complete a map with just 2 players !!
I have a couple of maps still to play on normal difficulty but it won't be too long before we start looking at ramping up the difficulty to the next level.
