So, I understand the gameplay timer is to make sure no monsters (wraith) run forever. But I lost a game today as Behemoth, on the Wraith Trap map where I wiped the team at stage 1, except the support, and by stage 3 I had full health still. We were skirmishing a lot, but I never had any kind of disadvantage, I was really trying to farm my last star in my Fire Bomb mastery. However when the timer got to about a minute, I decided I wanted to just end it, and kept repeatedly trying to wipe everyone, but they would all just spread out around different sides of the relay, not even fighting me, just running in crazy directions. Sunny kept alluding me more than anyone with her cloak, but it was like even when I’d catch her, they would be dropping back in, running different directions as soon as the first hunter died. I’d go for the relay (which I’m completely against usually, it doesn’t feel like a win unless youve already basically won like in this situation) but Sunny and Torvald would just stand on opposite sides of the Relay, goading me to chase one of them while the other ran away. It was the only time I’ve lost where there was no reason too, it was very aggravating.
Anyways, sorry for the ramble. It was just so weird to go from toying with a team, to trying to race to clock and down each one in those final seconds. And if the timer runs out, why do the hunters just win? They didn’t kill the monster, like they were supposed to.
I know it’s to keep monsters from running all game. But maybe when the timer runs out, time fast forwards a little? Sudden death mode begins, the monster gets an instant stage 3 (keeping any damage to its health it’s recieved but gaining full armor) and it starts with the team at the Power Relay, with the monster, in a dome that STAYS UP INDEFINITELY, so it’s truly a sudden death mode. Like it will stay up even if the Trapper drops. And maybe to even it out for hunters, since a monster might try and run all game just to enter sudden death mode, remove a strike from each hunter. Since the monster gets armor and a free stage 3 that makes sense.
