But everytime he DID finally try to leave, our trapper was in the perfect spot to dome him again.
I seriously never even saw him move sometimes, I had to go back to the recording just to see where he went.
Agreed, we played a match last night against a hell of a good Goliath (Or at least, in the first game!) he made it to stage 2 after baiting the dome and running like hell, Evolved and smoked us at Stage 2, hands down, one of those “Did anyone catch the number of that semi that just hit me?” moments.
Next game, I got Trapper, he did Goliath again, I managed to dome him stage 1 and our assault stayed ON this guy as he tried to dome-run. Cracked his armor and only took ~a bar of HP, but after that dome the Monster was clearly panicked. Hitting edges with leaps, staying in LOS for retranqs (Though I will note it was Wraith Trap w/ a Val as Medic, pretty open) and I was staying no more than ~20meters behind his as Maggie.
After another dome (He managed to gain about 4 bars of armor) and about half his health later, he was clearly in panic mode. He gained a little ground on us this time, but only because it was something that almost let me catch back up and walk alongside him: We found the Nomad
Next game… he wrecked us. Then we beat him. Then I left to join a friend when they came on. It was fun, the back-and-forth curb stomping. I could tell both groups involved were learning from their previous games, adjusting to counter the antic of the other team in the next game, and so on.
