Ok, so 2K shot you down, sad. I started with Evolve a half year ago (if I remeber correctly). About 200 players online and looong wait times for a match. Unbalanced teams, because of low new player count and high vet count. But you know what, I enjoyed a damn fine Multiplayer experience.
While I find your decision for evolve to go f2p and a redesign brave I couldn't dig stage 2. I didn't like the new approach, simplifying things and making it more pressure action oriented. Shoot to keep the arena up, big arrow for monster direction, instant arena for everyone etc.
I know you guys wanted to safe the game but it was the decisions made at start where things went wrong. To root them out, well I guess you would have needed another year of free to play.
So I hope you get a better publisher and start with Evolve 2.
And now, please do a server rollback to the original Evolve Stage 1 and get back to serious hunting.
