Jeez, I can't get off of 2XP! Went up to 4 once, but next battle it went down to 2 again, and that's where it is now. I'll never level up my crew this way, and I can't fight the others like this. -If an enemy ship is lower class than you, the XP gained will be significantly lower. Combat vs. AI is also about 25% of what you'd get from playing against a live player.
