Having to explain to a ten year old, let alone getting her brother to help her, that its not too hard doesn't cut it anymore. She; and for the most part her brother; are playing because games are supposed to be fun. While some will think ten is young with proper supervision the game is fine, she sees worse on cable and hears worse as school. That out of the way, far too many missions are stymieing her simple because of the elites involved. Her brother would never admit any problems but he is a bit more stubborn so eventually pushes his way past most if.

What I am getting to is that if she stops playing most likely the rest of us will too. She wants to do her character by herself (if I have to explain why you don't know young ladies) . While we can and do play together at times its a matter of timing. Leaving Christmas vacation and my timimg will be wholly different from theirs. There just isn't a point to the heroic mobs in the normal missions. They are only frustrating and not helping the story along. Of the four of us she does not do missions unless prodded but she will control the fate of four accounts.

Why don't you all try tackling them together? also, a good trick is to use med packs and stims. as for removing them altogether, it would sadden me to see this happen, i like the challenge, sometimes if i can't do a mission cause its too hard, ill skip it and do some others until i level once or twice (i know u said they dont skip, but they wouldnt skip even for a few hours?)

I wanted to drive when I was 10. My dad told me to wait until I was old enough.

L2P issue. If anything, please make the game harder.

This is either a very clumsy attempt at extortion and a downright lie, or the worst parenting I've ever heard of.

I can sympathize with your issue here. And i do understand the issues of having a young daughter that enjoys playing with dad or family. My daughter got her start on city of Heroes.

the only suggestion I can give you is try to work with her on it. the way I did it was not while playing with my daughter, I sat nearby and did other things and when she ran into an issue she would get me to come over and help her out. Not doing it for her but coaching her on how to deal with them. Eventually she did get the hang of it. It took a while but my daughter did it down about using certain abilities at certain times, it just takes some coaching and patience.

Good luck and hope this helps a bit. And also be prepared for people to come in the thread and have screaming fits.

The whole point of elites is provide group challenge. Now, I understand you said "non-Heroic" but ALL FP should be considered heroic.

Running up against an Elite in a slay X goons mission can be jarring, I agree, but you have to utilize all the skills your character has. Also, make sure you are not under-leveled.

10 year olds don't need to play MMORPGs to be entertained. There are sooooooooo many other games more suited for that demographic. You're going to have to get over it.
