I generally dislike throwing mud around, but I feel this topic hits a bit too close to home for me to ignore.
I’ve recently been trying my hand out as Behemoth, and while I’ve had a ton of fun up until now, I recently encounter a bug that completely broke the game for me. While trying to stage up to stage 2, my character rapidly repeated the very beginning of the evolve animation, and the progress bar disappeared. After waiting a few seconds, I tried canceling it and instantly completed, however I was unable to choose any perks, and was thus locked out of my controls. I tried several countermeasures, like pressing escape, and alt-tabbing out of the game, but nothing worked. This bug was also present in the original version of the game, and I’m saddened it hasn’t been able to get patched out yet.
However, the group I was also fighting decided to abuse this bug, and continued fighting me even as it was clear that something was wrong (as one member even stated in the post-match lobby). I called for a restart of the match, but all 4 of them instantly voted no. I’ve always felt that bug abusing is a disgusting, dishonorable practice, and I’m fairly certain it goes against the player code of conduct. However, I have no outlet to report this to other than the forums. Therefore, I would like to request that the Evolve developers add a “report” tab in the after-match lobby of the game, to help put a stop to cheaters, bug abusers, and those that make hateful/discriminating comments towards others.
