So I just got back to playing Evolve after a couple months break and boy was I surprised in a few matches. Was there some insane buff to hunter damage, a new cheat or is there something I’m not getting?
I’ve played a few games now where hunters will do absolutely insane damage. The kind of damage when in the duration of 1 leap I lose half of stage 1 armor on Goliath. And I’m not exaggerating. I leap from behind cover to behind another cover in order to mitigate damage, and I literally lose 1/3 to 1/2 of my armor, so 3-4 bars. In a span of 1-1.5 seconds.
I just had a game where Parnell, with 2 rockets and 3 shotgun shots, took down 5 full armor bars off me before I pounced him. His team wasn’t in line of sight or able to shoot me. Same game, 1 (not direct) hit from Hank’s barrage took off 2 armor bars and a full healthbar. And near the end 2 of Parnell’s rockets took down half of a health bar (again he was the only one with line of sight on me, and neither rocket hit me directly but the ground next to me). I also had Hank take down 2 armor bars in the span of 1-1.5 seconds with just his laser cutter.
And this is just the last out of half a dozen matches like that since I started playing. I get domed, turn back, leap to the nearest hunter and I’m already down from full armor to 1-2 bars. This is the type of damage I’m talking about. The type where even if I’m mitigating damage, even if during the whole dome the hunters only get a few seconds of clear shots on me and I still lose full armor and half health.
What the hell is going on?
