How do you setup the mission difficulty when 2 players team up and are different ranks?
I'm a returning player teaming up with a friend just starting out. He's a Lieutenant and I'm Rear Admiral, lower half. We would like to team up together without the lower rank getting ganked by the NPCs.
Here is what we do when we team up. The Lieutenant invites the Rear Admiral, who selects "Yes" to use team captain’s mission level. All mission levels start out at the lieutenant level, but when we enter into the 2nd space map of the mission, the difficulty level jumps up the Rear Admiral. i.e. the Lieutenant ship is instantly destroyed my the NPCs.
We are working on the mission chain from Admiral Quinn, “Stranded In Space”, “Diplomatic Orders”, “Hide and Seek”, and “Outreach”.
Are the mission difficulty based on ranks or ship class?
