In other words if you like hamster wheel looter shooters you'll like it. If you don't you won't.
The difficulty levels go up so sharply to and if you are a have not, you can be one shotted or can't do damage. They are finding out the powers aren't scaling well and then it becomes a game of gun drop luck. People state only a Colossus right now can really power through because of their health and defense. They say an Interceptor can't play their melee role because they do exactly zero damage in that role , kick, punch, twirl, punch = ZERO and they have to revert to gun play and hope they have a good gun.
Think of any online game and if there was a player doing 50 damage per hit and another doing 2500 per while the poor guy has 1000 HP and the other 10000 HP... this can happen here, not those exact numbers but that kind of spread, unprecedented!
I've been playing the Interceptor, we ran the Stronghold the other night, granted my gear was not as good as it should have been. But we ran it on Hard and I had this exact issue where I was not able to do much melee damage to the Elites. Ended up a gun fight the whole way though.
Luckily, we had a high level colossus with us, he was able to take down the final boss. I will say this, I've gained several more levels and getting Epic gear drops, it has made a big difference with my dps and being able to fight melee and kills stuff much easier
I think this is going to be the case with many, people are going into the Strongholds under geared and under leveled playing it on a harder levels then they should be.
