Another bonus is if you level your team up from 1 (or so), you end up learning the MQ2 ropes as you go along too, before the amount of abilities, clickies and AA's get really complex.
Slightly off topic, glad @Deafknight went with his own choice of line up and not the "Red Guides group" (BRD/BER/BER/BST or BRD/BER/BER/BER) you see 6 boxers go for in game. Easy to spot them (for better or worse).
Very true! it did help immensely learning the ropes. When I finished the first group I learned so much that I decided to start boxing another group on my second computer. Needless to say I finished them in a fraction of the time.
