I'm confused what this player and mobile suit level stuff is. I would have thought the latter was just leveling up a suit, but it says it goes up to 20 and I didn't think that went that high. Maybe there is some global score based on your progress on all the suits? That could be annoying.
On the plus side, there is no mission mode grind. Most of it should be doable in online matches. On the down side, I will probably be using my JP account so I'll miss out on an easy plat for my main PSN.
