This is a big part of why I don’t like to play as the Monster, I love to fight a hard match and succeed as the Monster as much as the next guy but I never pick it as my first choice.
The reason for that is, it’s just kinda dull.
As a Hunter I love hearing all the little tidbits of lore and other quirky things from all the Hunters, the Hunters themselves built up a great picture of the universe they live in but the Monsters are just kinda there destroying stuff, with no real reason why highlighted by the game.
The mystery of it is cool and all but it makes playing as a Monster feel…empty. You’re just a mindless monster destroying stuff for some reason.
You can’t play with friends, you have no real goal besides destroy stuff or anything like that. It’s very lonely.
I feel like people would enjoy playing as the Monster more if you did know why they were attacking the colonies.
Perhaps convey that through interactions with some kind of “Queen” Monster, like in Alien.
I’m not sure what else to suggest here, unless we want a Monster language or Monsters that straight up talk human languages but I feel the game would have been greatly improved by that and people probably wouldn’t moan so much about matchmaking issues.
It’s a bit late now to add that in but if there’s ever an Evolve 2 or Evolved(patent pending) that would vastly improve the experience.
Lastly I see something about a possibly canned Monster called “The Host” or something, maybe that could have functioned as the “Queen” type Monster controlling things behind the scenes.
Even a generic human villain controlling the Monster would have been nice.
