I am here to make a suggestion, unlike every other Tom, Dick and Harry bagging out the game I love it but one thing I have started to notice is the lack of any incentive to continue playing. I really think it would be great if, in the future, a competitive matchmaking system could be implemented and create a “Ranked” version of Evolve. Like the game has plenty of strategic depth to accommodate such a system. You have synergies with certain Hunters and Monster mechanics are really solid. So why not take it to the next level. If any of you are familiar with Shootmania Storm (great game but no one in the Australia region plays it) there is a ranked game mode that is 3v1. Pretty much competitive teams consist of three people. One person has a one shot instant death sniper with a long wind up and the opposing team has small four blast burst guns that take off a single point of health. The Lone Gun has as many lives as there are opposing players. So imagine if Evolve worked off a similar premise? The only thing that would need to be added to implement this type of mode (at least I feel) is substantial map changes. Like think of a game like CSGO for example. When playing on certain map’s tactics change. The way each team rotates with a failed attempt or spots that people like to camp on. In Evolve it’s currently up to the monster to be like “Yeah this spot suits me” and hunkers down until the Hunters catch up. I feel that maybe some map effects might have subtle differences that favour either the Hunter or the Monster, just little things that you have to keep in mind so as to not blindly rush in to each map with the same strat in mind.
Anyway this was just an idea that I had, no one has to listen but it is just some food for thought. If anyone has suggestions I’d love to chat about it.
