Some are so small that when Maggie is on the other team, you’ll always meet them at stage one.
Not all maps are totally balanced. That being said, good teams will dome you stage 1 85+% of the time even on the ‘large’ maps.
Honestly if they can’t pull off one dome before you reach stage 2 then that is exactly how you know your dealing with a below average trapper
I say most of the time you guys are right. Sometimes a sneaky monster can get stage 2 against a good abe or griffin. Barring no carrions show up.
I was recently in a match where we found the monster in like 30 seconds. It really depends on which monster/hunter combination is present.
