I'm up to lvl 42, so figured a lot out but not everything. Hopefully this card explanation doesn't get clunky. Attempt #1.

Step 1 to leveling up, you place a point into one stat (SPECIAL). This probably raises some baseline numbers but nevermind that. Relevant to right now, it provides a max value to assign cards. All stats max at 10, but your player level max is 50, so you won't be able to max all stats.

Step 2 to leveling up, assign a card to a stat. Each card has a value, which starts at 1 (the # displayed on the card). Many cards can be ranked up, represented by the stars at the bottom of the cards. Getting a duplicate of a card provides the option of combining them to rank up. This also raises its value.

The combined card values in a stat cannot exceed that stat's points. If you have a Strength of 3, you can assign three rank 1 cards, or one rank 3, or a rank 1 & a rank 2.

Cards are also specific to a stat. Cards for Strength can't be assigned to Luck, etc. You can sort available cards, which helps a lot.

Cards can also be unassigned & re-assigned at any time, not just when you level up. Let's say you have a rank 2 Lockpicking card, but another card that helps in literally any other situation. When you find a rank 2 safe, make sure the coast is clear, then go to your perks and swap cards, pick the lock, then swap back.

I've never seen another persons camp.
Players like to isolate themselves. Some also build minimal camps that are hard to identify, and/or pick up camps when they move on to new areas.

Quote:
CAMP confuses me. I lost it completely once, and it had the minimal stuff. I don't want to have to rebuild a massive house if I lose it.
Because of the budget system on camps, it's impossible to build anything too elaborate. I really think they're meant to be minimal and mobile, like you explore for a while, then plop a camp down for workshop & stash transactions, and/or to log off so you have a haven immediately on next login. The lame inventory & stash limits play into this, like you won't get overloaded with junk if you're building new camps every session.

There's a "blueprint" feature when in build mode that lets you copy camp layouts. Won't save physical pieces so there'll still be resource costs, but it'll copy/paste your layout to save time. I haven't tried it but one of my buddies did & it worked.

I have no idea how the friend system works, but I hear it's very broken.
Commenting only on PS4, it seems fine. Social menu lists Friends, Teammates, and Randoms, each in its own tab. Friends aren't immediately Teammates, in case y'all wanna brawl, but they (and anyone) can be invited to join your team to share XP & cap gains from missions, as well preventing friendly fire.

Quote:
Your blue stash box holds all your items. There's several of them around the map and they all contain the same stuff as your stash in your CAMP. Nobody can get into it except you. I'd so so frustrated if there was a way fro somebody else to access mine. That's where I store all my crafting material.
Stashes are quite explicitely player-only, thank crom. I store way more than just crafting material.

Quote:
The crown symbol, from what ive noticed, general means that enemy had better loot than the other enemies.
Crowns indicate area or dungeon boss, just as they did for previous Fallouts. They're supposed to drop 2-3 gear items every time (which they hadn't, and still don't even after the patch that addressed it). I'm starting to come across some that also have stars after their names which, in previous Fallouts meant they carried Legendary gear. But it used to be star or no star. I saw a boss with 3 stars, which was more frightening than intriguing because i had to flee that battle.

In other news, the recent patch is like Amazon's wage increase: stash limit is now 600. But the Excavator power armor lost its +100 inventory bonus, and normal power armor carry limit is also reduced. Word is, you have to get nekkit, log off, and log back on to fix it. I've also encountered frequent server disconnections, where it states controls have been disabled due to server issues or error, and my character is left standing still in the wasteland like he had a surprise lobodomy. At least it also affects enemies - last time it happened, looked like a wild west duel was about to go down between me & the Scorched i'd been attacking.

One is a Dev written plot point that targets a fictional, in-universe class of sentient machines. The other is user driven hate speech that targets actual, real world living beings.

Not really comparable.

I killed a level 32 guard gutsy commander as level 11.

Felt just a bit to easy to me. It took a ton of ammo but that was my only limiting factor.

Still enjoying the game though. Have run into a few issues with items ive clipped through that i shouldnt have but it is what it is. They'll fix it eventually.
