Our group got together and played missions 0, 1 &2. 0 was of course only a few minutes, 1 and 2 we each got done in under an hour. Do the latter missions have any more beef to them?

Average plays are about 45min-1.5 hr depending upon the group. Some play very quickly, while others are slower.

Later missions increase in both complexity and difficulty. They introduce additional mechanics, and unlock additional schematics, and in some cases, other content.

Missions' difficulty vary and influenced by number of mechs; at least that's what I feel.

My group took 2.5 hours for the tutorial and mission one. Mind you, there was a lot of AP mulling over the cards, since we were unfamiliar with them. Naturally, that stopped after the escalation in the first mission. Also, that wouldn't delay any group more familiar with the game.

Agreed play mission 3 with 4 people. If you can win on the first try then you guys are just pro. Make sure your doing the activation in order as well. I noticed we where playing wrong our first two games which made things much easier.

Minions are suppose to Move,Spawn, then do damage. We would move do damage then spawn which is much easier in allot of missions.
