Was waiting for Evolve since the announce date, because it promised to be a rare thing - online actiong game when you can play SOLO, that was the only thing i wanted from all online games, so i spend year on colleting money to buy this game.
Was is what i expected? Yes. Not quite, ofc - i expected more hiding and usable environment like in l4d, but… game was fine even without it. And also it looks just great. But i still cannot play it. Why? I tried to analize it, and the only possible reason i came out with is: i am too bad for this game and players who playing it.
The thing is - i cannot win games. Or, to be true - i can win against solo players (and only in hunt. in evacuation, for example, i still cannot realize how can i win deffend map with wrath or goliath. and behemoth is just a beating bag in my hands - i must be really horrible player), but when i meet pre-made team, where all members are playing good - i have no chances of winning.
See, i believe that this game should be ballanced well. I don’t know for sure, but i do trust dev’s on this one.
What good ballance means? It means that if a single hunter making a mistake - whole team are doomed, if monster will not make a mistake too, ofc. Hunters need all 4 players to play perfectly to win - and monster needs only to play good himself, and not depend on others. But, if all 4 hunters are playing perfectly - monster still having a chance, right?
And i am not that kind of monster. I am weak, and i do not have any chances. Pre-made players, who knows the map are just splitting in teams of 2 players to cut off al the escape routes, they travel fast and deny most of the feeding attempts, they see you in the bushes even when they have no vision on you and you can barely see yourself behind those grass. They cut off all escape routes, and not letting you evolve to thrid stage. They abusing bird and dust to not let you hide anywhere. And even if you do evolve…
Well, in my last 2 games i was thrown to human team. We was against wraith, and we could not catch him at all - he always evaded dome, and we had no dust\bird in team (wierd. almost everyone uses those two). So he fed and evolved for free. Then he came on our relay, and quess what? We devastated him without a single loss. He could not britch all the heals, shields, and jetpack manuvers.
Then i finaly got the monster role, and played against same team i just defeated (previous monster joined them). Quess what? I lost almost the same way. I fed almost for free, evolved, and… when i took one of them down (pretty fast, lost only my shields) they started healing and shielding him while he was on the ground, and i lost 60^% of my total hp while i was bringing him to the final death. Then i did the same with other one, but i got only 5% hp left - while i tried to chase someone who had jetpack boost, heals, shields, they never stoped shooting. And i lost. To the team that wasn’t even a full premade. With lvl3 monster (that should have huge advantage on the hunters!!!).
And those system that keeps throwing me in ongoing games as a hunter in 100% of first search games makes me feel even more sad.
Here i realize that i am a total loser and will not win any kind of serious battle in this game.
And i really regreat that i spend all the money i collected in last year to buy Evolve, when i could buy MKX and enjoy the solo play there.
Not because this game is bad. Game is great, and it is exacly what i expected.
But i am the one who is bad here. Too bad to win any decent match.
There is no specific reason why i am writing this. I just feeling so sad - it’s like to buy cool shoes and then realize that you have no legs to wear it.
Am i the only one who could not handle this game, or maybe there is other losers like me?
