I have read the latest patch notes for the next balancing patch and i have to say i am very unhappy with the way the are going and the changes they are making.
I am primarily a monster player played lots of Wraith (got elite skin and was 2nd in the world in the beta) i still love to play Wraith but now i am glad that i have maxed the monster so i don’t need to play this post balance weakling,
The Wraith was OP in the beta i understand but the Wraith is fine the way it is now, but then they reduce almost every advantage that the monster had at her disposal (speed, trickery and stealth) and still expect people to be happy with the monster. for example they have reduced supernova by 50% that is ridiculous now all a hunter team needs to do is get shields and healing up and they can pretty much out last the supernova with a now damaged wraith directly in front of them, one of the main points of Wraith is speed yes? well now warp blast is no longer a traversal mechanic the distance has now been reduced and will not go up no matter how many points go into it. making the what i call speed build (max points into abduction and wrap blast) much less effective. if the devs don’t like monsters using their abilities as extra traversals then why does Goliath have two (leap smash and charge) i understand the he is a completely different monster but the reason is unclear.
The Wraith is different to the other monsters but this doesn’t mean she is OP it just takes different tactics slowing the Decoy in the middle of a fight renders it almost useless (which Val can now do for longer) meaning the weakest monster has to get in their and do the damage herself.
In my opinion they seem to have listened to the wrong people from where i am sitting they have listened to people who play hunters with out a team (just going into matchmaking by themselves) doing this will appear to increase the power of the monsters but it doesn’t it only decreases the effectiveness of the team people then go on to the forums and twitter to tell people that the monsters are OP. So lets get this patch straight, monster less powerful hunters more powerful, i thought this was supposed to be a balance patch as it turns out is just hating on the monsters again. im just glad that i have the Wraith elite meaning i don’t need to play it any more. Don`t nerf the monsters any more hunters just need to get better, most of them have had the game long enough.
SORT THIS OUT!!!
