Okay, now I’m not writing this to rag on the game, I have waited for evolve to come out since it was in
beta, and I love the game, as the hunter. I say as the hunter because the monsters seem to be somewhat
unbalanced in comparison to the hunters themselves. And no this isn’t a “Wraith is OP” rant, because we
all know that she is a sly little she-devil that will haunt your nightmares and eviscerate your bowls faster
than you can say, “Jesus! There she is!” I’m talking about the big tyrant of the land, Goliath. Now I know
that I’m not the best monster, I have only been playing since launch date. But when i do play the monster
I feel like the worst player in the entire world, and I have seen it in quite a few Goliath players as well.
What should be a giant, terrifying monster that will make you lye down, and cry the moment he reaches
stage 3, he comes off more as a bumbling oaf that is easy to track and hunt down, so loud that you can
hear where he is from practically across the map and, at full armor, a giant glowing target saying
“Haaayyy guyyyys!” From what i saw of him in beta/alpha, preferably alpha, he was a beast, an absolute
monster that, sure if you didn’t know what you were doing you would be tracked down and killed in stage
1, but from stage 2 and up, you, as the hunter really had to step your game up and think fast of your feed
to avoid becoming just another quick meal on Shear. And yes, I have gotten my ass fed to me while i was
getting torn apart by the love of my life, Satan himself, but that was when the team was stacked with
those who seemed like they had just finished installing the game and who were playing it for the first
time. Then we have the other hand, a team working together and communicating tracked down one and
killed him in less than 5 minutes.
In short, it seems like Goliath should be one scary bad ass, that you do have to know how to use, but at
the same time the hunters should be wary of your very presence. but he seems more like a strong, stupid
oaf who is adept at killing other bumbling oafs. Not giving any hate to those who have been killed by a
very skilled Goliath user, but that’s what it seems to me. You gotta be a pro player in order to put up a
fight. As of right now, since launch, and all the matches I have played it appears that the only one of the 3
who is the most balanced one, the one that, when you see them in the lobby doesn’t make you say "Oh
god not another one, this is a loss for sure bois!" or "Oh, him again. Well this should be too hard if we
dont go looking for him by ourselves" (I’ll let you figure out what ones I’m talking about) he’s the one that
makes you say “Okay dont underestimate him laddy-do’s, if were not on our toes we will lose.” And yes
I’m talking about the Kraken. now I dont wanna see the monsters buffed to the point where is like trying to
fight the raptor Jesus, but certain ones, like the ones or one I have been talking about need a helping hand.
But that’s just me, for all i know I’m just the worst player and I’m just giving my two cents. And also, think
about this for a second, the hunters win most of the time. Most of their losses are due to Wraith, and a
good number of their wins are to Goliath. It’s only been with Kraken that the W/L ratio have been roughly 50-50, win some, lose some.
I’d love some feedback whether you agree, or disagree, or have seen what I’ve been rambling about, or if you wanna go out for a steak dinner.
And remember, I feeeed on hate.
Love you (>^.^)> <(-_-<) ^(+.^<) (>^.+)^
