I tried to like this game
But it took 4 hours to find and play 6 games. In three of them I was at power level 2 or three with 2 or three level 1 units and the other player had all of his units leveled. Waiting 15 minutes to find a game and then have all your units one shotted is not fun. Plus the rewards are really low for losing. You can sink 20 minutes into the match and come away with 1/5 the points needed to level a unit from level 0 to level 1. They really need to reconsider the values in this game. An AI faction for new players to match with might be helpful.

Hello vichus.

It's true that the playerbase is a little low these days, so situations like the one you described (uneven fights***) arise. The rewards could also get tweaked, I agree. However, once you reach power-6 (the first "standard" level), things get much easier, i.e. you can find matches faster, you can play ranked (and hence be matched against similar ranking players), you can experiment with different line-ups (builds) etc. Finally an AI (i.e. a PvE mode) is planned for Factions in the not-so-near future, that is after the single-player Saga is released.

*** If you want to avoid uneven fights, you could quit-and-reenter the queue every 1-2 minutes. This "resets" the search-window that expands on higher/lower power-levels as time passes and no match is found. This also applies to ranked-matches: if you stay too long on queue, you mind end-out against an opponent of vastly different skill (so that both your ranking-gain/loss and the challenge of the fight will be poor).
