So I play Evolve with friends. One of which hardly ever plays and another who isn’t on all that often so it’s generally only 2 or 3 of us with one or two randoms. My problem is how to catch a monster effectively and what to do when we have him caged.
So when chasing the monster I think I know the problem, with the mass amounts of Goliath’s played this weekend it’s really noticeable how the leap can be insane. A number of times it got them across the map the moment we found the monster and it seems stamina recharge is ridiculously good. Chasing the monster though I can acknowledge is out problem. It’s hard with randoms but we need to coordinate to try and head him off and get him.
The big problem though is when we cage a monster. So many times we cage a monster, an ability designed to force the monster into a fight so the hunters actually have a chance before it reaches level 3. Sometimes though you get monsters who run around the cage in a ring. I’ll focus on Goliath here but it can happen with the others also. But he leaps and runs in a circle until the dome is down simply ignoring the hunters. and more often than not they can escape without even taking damage to their health (When they have full armour) anybody got tips for how to stop these kinds of players? peoplpe do it around the map too, just run around the edge of a map in a circle and it’s incredibly difficult to catch them. What really annoys me is the cage avoidance, the part that is desinged to start a fight is just met with running in a circle.
Now I can predict a lot of people will say ‘you have to dome him in an advantageous area’ I don’t understand this at all. For one, there are certain maps that frankly don’t have advantageous areas (As in flat groud/open areas that the monster can’t hide in or around secondly though when a monster is so difficult to chase I have to Dome at my first opportunity, even if the battleground is bad because if I don’t it will never happen.
My problem used to be the sneaky monsters, now I’ve gotten better and can fight them. Now though people seems to just take the ‘I can outpace you’ route which I’m finding really really hard to deal with when I can’t coordinate the whole team.
Anyone got any tips or tricks for heading off/chasing the leap abuse? More prominently how do you guys deal with the ring-runners when you get the monster caged?
FYI I play mostly trapper and generally griffin as his Harpoon is the only way to stop monster from leaping etc away. Also this post isn’t a ‘this game is too hard nerf all monsters post’ I’m just asking for techniques etc to actually learn how to stop these guys.
