I had been in a very tense fight as Gorgon with a two man party team of Abe, Hyde, Bucket and Val all game. They domed me at stage 1 and I couldn’t break through them at all. I knew I had to take my licks there and just ready for escape. They also caught me twice at stage 2, though with the extra power I was able to start building up those strikes. The heavy damage they were dealing though meant that by the time I had evolved to stage 3 I was left on just under 50% health for the final fight.
Thankfully the hunters didn’t think to hold the dome too much when I came at them with the Sloth Damage Buff under my webbed claws. Doming straight away, I was able to bring the fight to them and brute force through the heals and mechanised recharge to kill the assault that I had built a couple of strikes on earlier in the game.
Still standing was the trapper with one strike, the medic with one strike, and Bucket who was strike free. I took the opportunity to go and armour up, looking at the dropship timer… 1 minute 44 on the clock, that was my new game timer. With my health now near to 25% after taking out the assault this wasn’t a game that was ging to go any other way than me wiping them out before the dropship timer, or them dropping in and consequently dropping me!
So bucket was my next focus, the next biggest damage dealer I knew I needed to take him out of the equation, especially with that damn recharge ability. The three hunters were all up on top of the relay to start, as I came back with my armour back to 100%. Fighting bucket wasn’t easy but his dedication to stay on top of the Relay helped as I think Val couldn’t always get the line of sight needed for the heals. After a final particularly useful combo of spider, websnare and acid I managed to chase him down and off the relay and take him out.
About 30 seconds left on the clock, it was getting very tense now as I didn’t know if I was going to manage it. Never mind the sentries that are still there, the damage that was coming in now in general was low enough that I wasn’t worried about getting killed in the time before the dropship came. Now to take out Val.
One cycle of abilities and she was sitting on barely any health, a sneak pounce was broken by one of those remaining sentry guns, but lashing out with my claw she bit the dust. What time was left now? 13 seconds. Shit.
Abe’s the only one left, did he run? No! The fool stuck around to fight! So on to him I go, acid spraying everywhere… what’s he doing? It seems… maybe trying to go and revive Bucket?! Oh dear. Dropship incoming, Bucket dies anyway. It’s now or never. Sneak pounce… broken by the sentry gun again!
So I lash out again and again, acid spray, websnare… and… with what must have been a second or two to go… Hunters are all dead, Monster wins.
Phew! Well fought hunters. In the post match they rightly said… one poison perk and that game would have been theirs. Of course, there were other mistakes they made that could have meant my demise, but the end result was a close and great game.
edit: @Blaz_kun not sure if these were your friends as you seemed to be in a lobby with them a couple of games after!
