I’ve been playing a bit more Arena recently and I fully agree with the full armour for the monster at the start of the battle. But now that’s the case… I think wildlife should go. There is nothing more boring than the fairly common place tactic of killing the medic then running off to feed up every opportunity. If this is meant to be a battle to the death then the monster armouring up when you’re down to two hunters (for example) is a bit of an anti-climax.
Perhaps monster armour regen rate could be upped in Arena mode to compensate, but if the hunters have got beaten down in the process of taking the monster to their last bar of health, it seems a shame the monster can basically go and grab another chunk of health
