On average, for the average player?
Originally we wanted “Elite” status to mean just that, that you were a high level player with that character. That you put in the hours, got those headshots and as a result were a better players and I want you on my team.
Realistically though, it’s going to take people a very long time to get all the nuances of the game. People are learning fast, but after four or so days in the beta, there’s still a lot to learn about the game. Lots of room for improvement across the board. I don’t think people know it yet, but most people are just scratching the surface of what’s there. A character could take hundreds of hours to actually master. But maybe that shouldn’t have anything to do with Elite status.
So what to do about it. The way I’m adjusting the time now, it would take the average player 8.5 hours to take a character from nothing to Elite. Do you all think that’s too fast? Too slow? About right? Just curios.
