We started a normal hunt match, but monster DC on load, so it was a bot.
Now, I grinded in Coop a lot during 10x event, and it was like a walk in a park. Monster never attacks, unless domed, never really focused anyone, always switching targets, etc. Even if you were stupid enough to trap alone, and team didn’t reach dome in time, you could just deactivate it when low on health and monster would runaway, leaving you with 50 hp.
Now, I expected this fight to be like that in hunt. But AI turned out to be absolutely ruthless compared to that in Coop. It engaged me without dome when I found him, my team was pretty rookie (5-8 hour players), I domed and deactivated in hope that it will runaway, but it did not runaway, and instead focussed me to death, then our medic arrived and he gave him no chance - focus until med dies. It only fleed when got some bars taken away.
This was much much better experience than one I had in coop, closer to real player behavior. At least some challenge.
Why is it so much easier in coop?
