I fell in love with Evolve during the beta. I stuck with it, brought some friends, and defended the hell out of it for the first 3 months. I continued to hold onto hope in months 3-6. In months 6-9, I grew resentful - hating how much potential went to waste with such a unique game essentially becoming one of those games you even toss back in the bargain bin.
2.0 promised a lot, and I was extremely skeptical. Going F2P was a very bold move - one I didn’t feel that you (nor your publisher) would do. It was essential to the games survival, as well as making sure you’re on your A game once the masses arrived for their free AAA game.
After this last patch, I see that you really are committed to reshaping Evolve into the game we always knew it should be. You fixed the revive issue I suffered in my 1st match back, apparently fixed the shader lag I suffered from (we’ll see, about to launch), and you even added a generous amount of keys for founders - which I had honestly wanted (I was disappointed with the amount of keys I received initially and the rate they could be earned).
You also made tweaks to move speed and a few monster health caps, which again, I felt were needed but never said aloud. I’m glad someone did and I’m glad that you listened!
That’s every issue I’ve seen since 2.0 solved in a week. Bra-freakin-vo. You guys have really 180’d this thing. Thanks for caring.
