Hey guys in light of all the discussion about whether there should be dlc or whether its ethical or just the general negativity surrounding the topic, it made me think about how well some sort of a free rotation system would work in Evolve. Since I think a system similar in concept but different in execution to something that LOL uses would in my opinion be able to alleviate some of this negativity concerning dlc.
The reason why I think we need a system like that for Evolve is because to me at least when I go to buy a new hunter or monster im going to have this nagging feeling of “I know this guy is cool but am I going to end up not liking his playstyle?” which will make me very hesitant to buy that particular dlc since I don’t want to regret buying something I may not like later. But if I got to play that hunter or monster before hand then id be more easily swayed to buy the dlc since I know already that I like that paticular monster or hunter.
So here are my ideas for how the system could look one would be very similar to lols system were two hunters and maybe one monster are available for “free play” for two particular weeks each month and the next month it will be another 2 different hunters and a different monster (this is assuming that there are enough monsters to accommodate such a system other wise it would need to be tweaked)
The other idea goes like this, it will function more as a on demand “free week” or a trial system each month a player can choose X amount of characters (this includes monsters in the calculation) that they want to try out and for two weeks of that month they can play them as much as they want and have some fun and see whether they would like to buy them.
Both ideas above include the idea that any stats you earn on those characters when you play them will carry over when and/or if you do buy them.
TL;DR I think a system were if we are allowed to try out the different monsters and hunters for free and for x amount of time is good for the games health and reputation.
So those are my ideas tell me what you guys think. (also sorry if my writing style is boring, while english is my native language english class how ever was my worst subject ^_^" )
