With TU09 coming within a month or two, that which deterred people from this game is to be done away with. No more will noob hunters find a “running simulator,” for they will have an easier time finding their quarry and the monster will be discouraged from the FT3 strategy. Yet a sour taste is likely to be left in the mouths of the masses, and I do not imagine many people will simply flood back to this game; they probably won’t even know this has happened.
Furthermore, the DLC scandal will still remain. People will continue to turn to this and say, “No, this is a bad game.” These claims are wholly unjustified, but the general public is blind to this fact; largely because of the colossal bandwagon that hates on this game.
And then there’s just the misconception that this game is entirely dead. People will just say, “Why bother? Nobody plays this game.” It’s gonna be a hassle to get anyone to put aside this notion; though, should this challenge be overcome, the game will most certainly not be dead with a host of new players.
How do we bring people back to this game? How do we win over the non-believers, the salty scrublords, and the bandwagoning masses? We’ll be 100% right in what we say, as we have been all this time, but how do we show them the light? How do we make Evolve great again (preferably without having to build a great wall; that’s Behemoth’s job)?
