      In b4 higher stake regs say there is no change between those limits.
      In reality when you move up, there will be less tables, tables will be with a lot less VPIP on average. Your winrate will drop by half.
      After NL5 to NL10 it does get a bit more aggressive, but the difference is not as big as NL2 to NL5. NL2 is just circus, people who have no idea what they are doing play there so when you move to NL5 all of these people are mostly gone so there are not that many situations where someone just gambles and throws money around.

      nl2: true newcomers, complete spaztards and massively nitty regs (or "games will be quite tougher when you move up")
      nl5 and higher: for each limit the average player (even the fish) will be slightly better and slightly more aggressive

      this is pretty much spot on and all that needs to be said
