okay so I've read about a 5 min break between expeditions, but i'm curious about how long is an expedition expected to take? higher tiers are likely longer.. also is there a final expedition tier?

They changed it to a 30min timer that runs even when you're offline. Previously it was a 5min timer that stopped as soon as you logged out.
A round can take 15-20mins, sometimes longer, sometimes less long.
There isn't a final tier but after a certain tier, enemies start one shotting you, no matter your gear :)

if you played expeditions till you loose, then do you fail the whole session, or just that difficult expedition?

You only lose out on the loot of your current tier/round, but everything you picked up stays in your inventory.

nice its almost like a retro game mechanic, like early arcades.. play increasing difficultly till you are crushed. so excited for ruthless combat.

I am sure it has been answered before but how many rounds in a tier or vice versa?

you start at round 1, then 2 ect ect.

but at the start of round 1, depending on the EGO level of the group, you get the tiers. so a group of 4x100 will be tier 2? and 4x6000 will be 30.

oh and each round ups the tier by 1. so i think tier 1 is just weaker then you, 2 is at your level, then 3 and onwards will be higher tiers then you.

pretty sure each tier would be like a single round around 15- 20 min depending on how well you play... that's how I understand it

One addition: The Tier depends on group leader, not the overall or average ego of the group.
An Ego 5.500+ will start at Tier 23.
They have ranges of 500 ego I believe
So ego 0-500 = Tier 1
Ego 501-1000= Tier 2
Ego 1001-1500 = Tier 3
etc.

At least during the PTS stress test, they looked for people in those 500 ego ranges to spin up as many instances as possible.

For now, I am sure some dedicated individuals will get to rounds they thought weren't possible especially since it drops better and better gear
