I just have a few problems with Evolve and I’m just curious if anyone else has the same issues. I think Evolve is a great game, in fact its the one of two games i even currently play, but due to the fact that all hunter teams wonk consist of MLG players it feels a little unbalanced.
The 2 times down then insta death mechanic is game breaking for me. The hunters are broken if one dies or isn’t contributing is a helpful fashion; so the prospect that if you go down twice you are now subject to no more revives, it kills a team. I no longer play as the monster because it is far to easy. Being able to down hunters on my way to stage three and then at that point, when I’m at my most powerful, they go down permanently after a few hits, its not fun for me and after the game the hunters had no fun either. This isn’t helped by the fact that even if not pounced your jet-pack is such a watered down toy that it is impossible to escape the monster, so in that situation you just down the medic, then support, then assault and finally trapper. Even with tournaments I watch with professional hunters, the monster always seems to get the best of them. Especially by the end where the go down permanently.
These are my main issues with Evolve and the mass majority of strangers I manage to find myself in a game with full heatedly agree. As a not game developer I’m sure that the developers had numerous test a plays to determine the insta death mechanic and the Walmart jet-packs but in my experience and the experiences of other, it doesn’t seem to work.
I believe that by decreasing jet-pack recharge time, increasing its capacity by a little, and eliminating the insta death idea, with this i believe we can have a much more balanced game. But what the hell do i know everything i’m saying might be a load of bull shit( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Thank you for your time and consideration.
Also please god the Wraith is extremely, unfairly over powered. Forget everything i just said, the decoy sometimes does more damage than the Wraith itself and that working in tandem with its speed make it, in my opinion, the biggest current problem in any game. That probably sounds extreme but you know its a problem when whenever a Wraith show up in the character select every player sighs and you can only recall one time you won against one. Please address this.
