Eh… You will occassionally still fall into one if you’re looking up or at the map, etc. Sure it’s much more rare now as you’re aware of them much more, but it does happen. That small 1-2 second delay can be a lot for a monster. I believe it has even happened in ESL recently, where someone walked into a plant. It’s not entirely a noob thing.
Also, remember that in Evac, you can have a monster reward causing it to rain. This lets more plants grow on the next map making them a much bigger factor. I feel like more wildlife and plants should be added, not removed.
Woah woah woah WOAH! I do not agree with this at all.
Just recently I killed a damage buff sloth at S1, just because it happened to be in my path as I was leaving the dropship zone and I didn’t want to lead the hunters right to something that could be my demise later. So I did the sensible thing, which is to kill it and try to eat it, denying it for them (wouldn’t really benefit me since I don’t want to fight S1 if I can help it). So I kill it. What happens next? As I try to eat it, ~8-10 reavers (I KID YOU NOT), started to come at me in small detachments. They would hit me, knocking me off of the sloth before I could eat much of it. By the time I ate the sloth and a few of the reavers the hunters were on me and I took a fairly painful dome (though I was able to avoid any health loss).
