My online Evolve experience as of right now:
Step 1: Enter Multiplayer and select your game mode. (Taking
Skirmish as an example)
Step 2: Enough players are found, and the game loads the
Result A: The role select screen comes on, and I am able to
select the class/monster of my choice.
Result B: Get dropped into an already ongoing game, usually taking
over a bot of, or already locked into, the role(s) I put dead last in my
Result C: Get dropped into an already ongoing game in
spectator mode, sometimes even unable to bring up the pause/options tab to exit
the match normally, requiring a restart of the game.
Result D: Some manner of issue such as an expired session or random
screen freeze/black-out brings me back to the multiplayer lobby or main menu.
Results B, C and D all combined have an equal amount of chance
to occur as result A, which makes getting to play an otherwise very enjoyable
game an exercise in patience or frustration a little too often. I’m hopeful for
a fix in the near future, because the game hasn’t been out for that long. Even
just a toggled option, switching off the ability to join in-progress games
and/or bot take-overs would alleviate a good deal of the issues for me.
Thank you for reading.
