I’m seriously worried about the proposed changes.
-The magical deafness to dome and dome VO is a horrible idea in my opinion. Couple that with group stealth and we are both deaf and we can’t scent them either. I don’t need realism in a game like this but this change is absurd. That is basically a never fail system is trapper is stealthed. A great monster that is paying attention should have a significant chance to get away. Right now this chance is minute with stealthed trapper, something that every support in game can do.
-Sound spikes detecting stealth. Seriously guys? Stealth is already useless against the most played trapper, Maggie. Stealth is already fucked by RNG birds as well. Now stealth is detected with sound spikes and clearly destroying them will auto reveal you anyway. Stop eliminating play options please. The size is also increased? Do you not see spike coverage on some of the smaller maps? It is already covering everything nearly.
-Wraith, from glass cannon to glass ASS. There is no other way to view it. She needed a mobility nerf. Getting away was her problem. She always got away, dashed around, warped around etc. That should have been the fix, what you did was destroy wraith in all respects. Her supernova was her “cannon”, this cannon could already be 100% negated by just jetpacking out of the area. As it stands now you expect the weakest character that melts under seconds of direct fire to slowly melee one person at a time to try and win. If you want supernova to be shorter it needs to be rangeless. This would be like making hydes grenades do a lot of damage but if the monster leaves the AOE, all hyde can do otherwise is punch it. These changes would be fine if wraith’s health pool wasn’t a joke. As of now she melts, mobility and cannon was all she had. You destroyed cannon, made the other abilities so slow that only someone picking their nose couldn’t dodge, and apparently expect her to win fights by slapping one person at a time. GG wraith
On top of all the direct and indirect monster nerfs most of the hunters were buffed. I just can’t help but wonder if this is the beginning of the end for anyone who enjoys monster. Pigeonholing monsters into a playstyle and making it hunter favored.
