When I first started, I loved playing the monster. Even losses felt epic, a constant fight between two evenly matched factions, with juking and chasing, a series of fights throughout the match. But now, the style has changed to one I really don’t like anymore. Win or lose, it’s just not as fun as it used to be, and I figured I could share and encourage others to share why they struggle with enjoying monster. I’m not going to focus on specific hunters, though some of them contribute to the overall dissipation of enjoyment.
To try and keep this constructive, if you’re a monster, try to at least post things that you either enjoy or don’t enjoy about playing monster so we can get TRS some actual good feedback they can make changes on rather than just rants :-).
Things I enjoy when playing monster:
Multiple Fights over the course of the match
Landing skillshots on hunters
Escaping a rough situation by storing full traversals
Stopping revives while they thought I wasn’t paying attention
Luring hunters into a monster-favored area to fight
Things I don’t enjoy while playing monster:
Being unable to get away from a team using all traversals, ground gaining monster abilities, and climbing
“Eat and run” being the primary playstyle
Being unable to juke a team due to constant tracking in one form or another
Being permanently slowed or rooted while attempting to escape
Having the dome held all of stage 1 so I’m forced to take damage upon evolving
Carrion birds within the first few meats I eat in a match
Falling through the world
Getting caught on terrain while traversing
Revives or rezes that occur while meleeing/using abilities on the body
Thank you TRS for working to improve your game. I really do want to play it again as a giant monster, it’s just not as fun right now, though I do have hope :-D.
