in the past I’ve never really cared if a monster ambushed hunters at the drop ship at the beginning of the match. That is, until tonight. I didn’t know this was even possible, but it caused a very rare moment of gamer rage in me. 3 matches in a row, I watched a Kraken standby at the beginning drop zone and hit all four hunters with a lightning strike before they ever hit the ground, or had control of their characters or their jetpacks during the drop. as everybody goes flying the Kraken immediately rushes the medic (me) and killed it right away before anybody else can respond to help. the hunters either all die off right away, or they run, giving the Kraken two solid minutes of alone time to level up. my random teammates always stayed and died though.
there is of course nothing I can do about my teammates making poor decisions after losing a medic right away to this cheap tactic. but can we please do something about the kraken being able to get a free lightning strike on all four hunters at the start of the match?
