I’m one of those weirdos who loves to solo grind, and I got back into it with Evolve with the new update. The problem is the only bot options are in custom games, so you’re restricted by the daily limits (which are very limited) in your earnings, after you pass them you get 30 credits a game with no exp. Stage 2 pretty much removes the draw to solo play.
I hope in future they add non-custom rules PvE game modes where you can progress, maybe even at a slower rate but still have it there for those who want it. Maybe a separate rank and unlock section entirely.
Other than that I like all the other features, the UI is much better.
