I bought evolve with the first season pass a few months ago (maybe more than a few) cause of gameplay videos. I LOVE games with classes and roles to play like Killing Floor, Destiny, Guild Wars 2, etc.
But I was overwhelmed in the tutorials (only did monster and assault) and felt very out of my depth. I take everything seriously so I like being prepared for everything I do. Being so overwhelmed made me feel annoyed so I stopped before I even attempted a single match.
Stuff was happening (IRL and in gaming life) so I uninstalled it till I could find some time and actually learn the ins and outs. Recently retired from Destiny’s pvp (to have more time for life…and my 2015 and slowly growing 2016 backlogs) so suddenly a lot of free time.
I have been lurking around these forums, reading threads and whatnot, to get ready for Evolve again. I have quite a few threads bookmarked to post in (such as the PS4’s Evolve group) when I do finish downloading the game and have tried to consume as much info as I can on a purely theoretical manner.
What else should I be doing as it downloads?
I narrowed down my focus to hunters only because I’m neurotic (clearly) and don’t want to also add monster strategies to the mix. I already have a decent idea what characters to main (Val, Sunny, EMET, etc.) but you know what else?
I’m not only looking for stuff to read or watch that explains the general mechanics, but also how the gameplay flow and progression systems work, and basically anything else someone like me can latch on to.
For context i’m the type that plays Atelier games with a browser window open so I can look up how best to do everything as cleanly, painlessly, comfortably, and efficiently as possible. I’m also the type that wants to know (or at least have an idea) of how a game works so I can visualize it and go to work on it.
Please and thank you?
