I love Kraken. I really do. He’s my ‘Go-to’ Win monster whenever I play monster, and ever since recently I prided myself on my perfect win streak with him(Over 40 wins without a loss.) But, upon continued playing with after the recent patch, it’s become clear to me that he is by far the strongest monster now, and for reasons not a lot seem to realize: His ability to camp a downed hunter with almost no penalty due to his flight and range. When dismantling a team in high level play, it’s important to make sure that once a hunter is downed to either A: Kill that hunter outright(Unless Laz) or B: Bait other hunters to going for a revive so you can get easy hits on them for another down and take the game from there(2 hunters downed against a Kraken quickly spells GG for hunters). Unlike Goliath, Wraith, and even Behemoth, the Kraken suffers NO penalty for pulling off this strat due to his flight and ranged abilities, while the others expose themselves to one area.
So while I love Kraken and support either the other monsters being buffed or him being nerfed just a hair back in line with the others, I think an appropriate nerf would be to reduce the damage he deals to downed players by about 50%. This encourages a different style of play and for him to not gain so much of an uncounterable advantage over the hunters then the other monsters.
