So tonight I had the wonderful opportunity to play with gentlemansquirrel and his team. As a monster player, this is the challenge that I had been dreaming of. It was incredibly humbling, and while the time I had was short, I at least learned a few things that I desperately need to work on.
The first and most important was stealth play versus open combat.
The idea of fighting a coordinated team at stage one, I’ve learned, is completely out of the question. Absolutely no possibility of coming out on top without a strong elite perk on your side. This leaves your only option as stealth. However stealth is countered by overly frequent carrion birds that allow coordinated hunters the ability to fan out and squeeze in on your position.
What do we think is the best way to counter this? Immediately leave the area and abandon your food? Do we stealth away or run? And how do you get away against experienced hunters that bush check and are less prone to overlooking the giant glowing monster?
I’ve thought about only eating in caves, but some maps just lack caves that are populated with decent food sources.
What do you guys think? Because right now I’m thoroughly stumped.
