Just to get this out of the way before anyone gets the wrong idea. THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE HUNTERS OR MONSTERS.
We have gotten the Tier 1 variations done and the last tier 5 ,support, is coming out soon and that’s all fine and good. But I got to ask, where is the map love?
It’s clear at this point, even if the devs don’t want to say that there is a story line, that the game is moving along story wise. You can kind of get that feeling in the conversations the Hunters have, some are new and match up with events that have happened and others are just not played anymore or very rarely.
Now if you’re confused about what this has to do with maps, It’s simple, the Hunters where basicly left on the planet at the end of Defend and “story wise” they are trying to survive and escape the now. I have heard conversations pointing to this. That being said, the Monsters ripped there way across the planet and did alot of damage. Now why are there not maps that show this?
Lets take…The Dam. Fairly well know map as it is, yes? Now during the events in Evacuation,monster wins, the Dam loses power and a flood happens. Now this is shown by large puddles in the next map…puddles…really? But what about at the Dam? Is it more flood? Where there cave ins? How does the flooding effect the map?
This is what I’m asking, During Evacuation, even if you don’t like the mood it is still the “story” of Evolve, a lot happened, But it’s poorly shown and only in the following map.
Now I can kind of understand why they wouldn’t want to do such things with the maps. Mainly because it would most like remove the power relay objective. But that like the maps needs a update. Throw in some unpredictability, shake things up for both the Monsters and the Hunters. Surprise us with new maps and objectives.
At this point about the only ones left are those that actually want this game to continue on. New Hunters/Monster/variations is all good but not having those isn’t what drove away alot of players. It was the same routine over and over. The same objective over and over. The same maps over and over.
