It’s well known how horribly unfun wraith was when Evolve was launched. TRS insisted that the reason patching wraith took almost a month and a half was because they were implementing a micropatch system that would make sure we never have to wait that long again.
Was micropatching worth it? As of right now, I don’t think so. The last micropatch broke Kraken such that you needed a title update to fix him. He was unable to be fixed with a micropatch. So months were wasted implementing a patch system that can’t even fix what it breaks itself. This isn’t even touching the Behemoth rollspam. The assurance of quality control just isn’t there. What if a monster accidentally got infinite stamina from another botched micropatch? How many of you are willing to wait over a month facing such monsters everyday?
The name of the game right now for balance is months. I understand the contentions about the approval process for console but the fact remains that many other games are patched far more frequently than Evolve is right now. How does this effect me? I will be putting any DLC purchases on hold until they can get a state out where nothing is broken. I don’t mean perfectly balanced, but simply NOT broken. No rollspam behemoths, ungroundable Krakens etc.
