There’s a small influx of new hunters on PC from a recent Steam sale. I’m hoping a lot of them get through the learning curve and stay. I’m not saying to lose, just saying to not make the game boring for new hunters.
Don’t flee til three please. Get to S2 then attack. Nobody wants to play a game where they never see the Monster until S3 then the 15 minute match is over in less then 2 minutes.
Don’t sneak at the start. New hunters don’t know the feeding routes, don’t know likely places where you will be, and most likely won’t be able to kill you when they do find you. So let them find you and then kill them instead of playing a running/hiding simulator until S3.
Sometimes I don’t wipe them right away when I can. Get a couple strikes at S2 then run away. There is a difference between playing with your food and playing a match though, find the happy median.
Play the monsters that you are not at your A game with. I’m a Behemoth main, so I don’t play Behemoth vs new hunters. I try out the other monsters that I won’t choose when going against a premade of experienced hunters.
In short don’t drag out the match to S3 unless you need to. Engage and engage often. End the game with a win sooner rather then later in an excitement filled match hopefully.
