I was enjoying myself for the most part in elo-hell in the new Hunt2.0. That is… until I started ranking up with a group of people and suddenly… Krakens, Wraiths… Krakens, Wraiths… Krakens, Wraiths.
Can you beat them? Definitely. From what I heard in ESL, Kraken is still at the top. However… that doesn’t mean they are enjoyable to fight against.
There always seems to be some form of arms race going on between the Hunters and the Monsters. A new monster comes out with a different playstyle to change the current playstyles of Hunters… and new Hunters come out to try and counter Monsters. Yet, these two Monsters still never feel like they are ever being countered.
There is nothing more frustrating than seeing CC still being inconsistent or useless against Kraken/Wraith, but perfect for Goliath/Behemoth. The few times I lose to Goliaths/Behemoths I never feel cheated or cheesed minus the facts that Behemoth now moves like a freight truck and his tongue pulls through terrain(?).
Losing to Kraken and Wraith still always feels like horseshit and frustrates the hell out of me and my friends. Whenever I’ve lost to a Behemoth/Goliath I chalk it up to making a mistake but never with the other two monsters.
I’m not having fun when a Wraith flies behind a rock and decoys and we suddenly lose track of it, or the fact that Decoy does some ludicrous damage still. When the Wraith is invisible, right next to me and pounces me with no way of knowing they were there because of the Decoy duration. When CC hardly makes a difference against Kraken/Wraith when for some reason it doesn’t slow them down nor hold them back.When Kraken can still interrupt pick-ups on with his range auto-attack while running away from +50 meters and there is nothing you can do about it. Like literally, these two Monsters don’t even feel like they are suppose to be apart of the game with their kit.
I’m confident many will disagree, but there is a reason that most people’s go-to complaints about Monsters are Kraken/Wraiths. I’m probably going to start steadily playing this game less again and eventually stop once I grow tired of getting these Monsters. Maybe running into a few good Goliath games will keep me going.
