Unlike the original Evolve, Stage 2’s rounds are now 12 minutes and broken up into 4 minute segments. Monsters need to be aware of these transitions without having to stop and press ESC all the time. I’ve been doing coaching to new players and the biggest issue they are having is having no real knowledge of the round’s overall time and where they should be an when. Having a timer on their UI will better resolve this issue, especially when everyone begins to figure out that Elite Buffs are bound to the game timer. For that reason alone, the monster needs a timer – and one that ticks down from 12 minutes would be ideal.
