I got into a small discussion about this on Twitch, but had to go before I could really talk about it thoroughly, so I thought I’d bring it here. What’s harder to play - competitive hunter, or competitive monster?
I play Goliath for a PS4 Evolve team, and I’m pretty proud of my record. And having done so, I can definitely say I believe Hunter is way, way more difficult.
Monster is stressful, sure - you’re half the team’s success. But a mistake on monster is usually a dome when you’re not ready, or a free bar of health. That sucks, but you can recover. Monsters die slowly. A mistake on hunter is a downed hunter, and a single down can snowball on its own into a win. I can recall one game specifically where a support failed to cloak in time, and I got a down from it, and that down is the reason I won the game. Hell, a Hank with one down can mean a lost game against a stage 3 monster - even if they’re the only one with a strike.
tl;dr skilled Monsters capitalize on and snowball off of Hunter mistakes far more easily and brutally than Hunters snowball off of Monster mistakes. Thoughts?
