Ok so here’s the deal, first off I just finished reading all the posts on this thread Why I can’t stand playing Goliath anymore and I agree masssively with everything this guy said (sorry i forgot your name at this point!) but i wanted to add some stuff that’s been bugging me.
firstly, a tonne of people are asking for: kraken to be nerfed, kraken players to stop using AS and all this flying crap, Behemoth to be nerfed, wraith to stop spamming decoy, and more. to be honest, i’m really tired of it. some of you need to understand that with these insane new hunters cough jack cough and their mad new tools, they are literally hindering the monster entirely useless. sometimes, Wraith players have no choice but to use decoy because of the ridiculous traversal bugs that are occurring, and issues with her abilities, and now the crazy amount of power and simply OP abilities that some of these hunters have. I’ve lost the first two of my placement games due to playing as my all time fave Wraith, then realising she’s full of bugs. I then swapped to behemoth.
as this above quoted thread mentions, Jack’s repulsor gloves are causing mad problems for the monster, when combined with those drones that are spamming harpoons. how’s this for spamming? Hunters: stop spamming harpoon drones, stop spamming repulsor gloves, stop spamming mini nukes, stop spamming personal shields. sounds ridiculous? of course it does. but it’s “no fun” for monsters to have to put up with this spamming, because of how frequently available the abilities can be used; just like some of you say that decoy and lava bombs and aftershock is “no fun” for hunters. well, at this point, some of us monster players have no choice.
so, how about we get some bug fixes for Wraith (currently rendering her almost unplayable, for me anyway and i do not spam decoy) and some much requested nerfs to Kraken? I have no idea what those nerfs should be, because the only point i played as Kraken was in February and havent used him since then, but im guessing from the forums that it’s aftershock.
Behemoth, for Christ sake, does not need a nerf. he is supposed to be the biggest, strongest monster in the game, and if you can’t take him out by the time he’s stage 3, then all i can say is you need to do a better job killing him and tracking him. he’s now what he’s intended to be. just to be fair, at the most, i wouldnt complain if he gets an armour reduction, i think that’s suitable.
and please don’t get onto me about BOB. i’ve had extremely hard times using him, as “OP” as he is, when im in games with 4 hunters, daisy, harpoon guns, constant healing beams, etc. it’s still a tense game and very enjoyable for me. and not just me, i can say for a fact that i engage hunters at any stage, i will make them chase me, and i will give them a chance.
now for the hunters, Jack’s repulsors need a huge nerf. either reduce their use time (not sure what our tech term for that is, but basically the time being used) or increase the cooldown time. next, those harpoon guns need nerfing. my best suggestion is their cooldown time as well; increase it.
i say these things, that a lot of you may disagree with, and im unfortunately ready for backlash; but i am a heavily preferred monster user, and i must voice my opinions on what i struggle with when fighting these groups of hunters. i am an experienced monster, i do not spam decoy when i play as Wraith and i do not even play as Kraken so i am no exploiter of… exploits. and devs, i hope to god the new monster is powerful enough to counter these new hunters, and i hope her abilities are really something different.
be helpful, i hope no one gets immediately pissed becos of what i have said, just understand that there is a tonne of crap monsters have to face and sometimes the other players are forced to use things they might need not even enjoy. thanks for reading.
