From the beginning this game had my attention. After getting my hands on the content, it still does. Only, I am not happy with the presentation of the game. I know it is only week one, but every time I sit down to play, issues crop up. Game breaking bugs, server drops, and by far the worst (and you can see it everywhere in the forum here), matchmaking. I like being support. Hell, I like just being a HUNTER so, as it seems natural, game after game I am tossed into half-completed games as a monster. I have no control over what I play, diminishing the value of the content greatly. With more content coming, I am still hopeful this game will be fun to play, but currently… I can’t stand the lobby, pre-game bull. Interestingly I dont care about the DLC shenanigans or the potential one-shot formula getting boring, I just want to have more control over the role I have in the game, and I hope that it isn’t too much to ask for.
(Before anyone mentions Solo or Co-op, where my chances to be what I want are 100%, I want to state that those matches feel hollow compared to PvP. Playing chess with a computer is challenging, but hardly satisfying, and it is that human element that made Evolve such an interesting concept from the beginning.)
I will be keeping an eye on you, Evolve, and I desperately hope to return when you have had some time under the buffer.
