i just played a singelplayer match to test him.
mode was nest, no fav. dmg, ship time 15 secs, hunters were emet, tech hank, abe and lennox and they had a support drone with shield. i didnt lvl aftershock and tried the thunderstrike, banshee-missle and the vortex-beam and i won.
i was lvl 2 and the medic came back after 15 secs, i striked down the supporter and the trapper and the assault got beat down at last. before the next 15 secs were reached i punished down the medic again.
at begin elder kraken seemed to be weak (of course weak because every monster seems weak compared with our good old fashion unbeatable vintage kraken which is the most powerful thing in the whole game) because i lost much energy very quick (well ok i was pretty surprised i couldnt shoot some kind of bolts while i fly) but later i could dmg them down and with 2 or three bars of health left i still won. im surprised does elder kraken really not have long range attack while fly?
well ok it was a bot-match but it should be the last round for today and i didnt want to wait in multiplayer so i started a singleplayer round.
maybe im not that good as monster but i got enough experience to know the weakness for hunters and i gave them 15 secs revival and a support drone + tech hank.
and no a minion didnt help me.
all in all maybe he is the kraken i always want to fight with or against because he makes fun.
thanks vintage kraken to never have fun doesnt matter if i win. ^^
