I used to love playin solo. The hunts were tough, the fights were engaging, my AI teammates felt tight.
Now, I find the monster in 2 minutes, he doesn’t use the same tactics he used to, which made him tougher to find. He doesn’t aneak much anymore either. There’s times when we see him over 100 meters out and shoot at him, he turns and engages even at stage 1. Easy kill. The arena goes down and he hangs around to die.
My AI teammates have become stupid, they run off on their own and get killed. They no longer help a teammate up from being incapped. On a game mode like rescue, if they spot the monster across the map, they break off and chase it down, leaving me alone to rescue the survivors or better yet get eaten by a plant or tyrant.
This latest patch really hurt my enjoyment for this game. Solo was the main mode that I played. I do play co-op as well, but I really appreciated the AI and the solo experience. It’s getting tough to do that anymore.
I used to win half of the matches. Some days on evacuation Id win 3 of 5. Next day Id lose 3 of 5. Some days Id 4 or 5 rounds and the next day lose 4 rounds.
I actually don’t mind losing in this game, it shows me that the challenge is there.
But lately not so much .
