I’d like to talk and suggest some changes and fixes that need to happen in the near future of Evolve Stage 2. The current patch hasn’t been up for long yet as I’m posting this but I already see some things that just doesn’t seem right. Also I’d like to hear everyones opinion on this post, also feel free to comment and express your own opinions about what needs to change in Evolve. So let’s talk about it more.
First of all I’d like to talk about the new “Balance Changes” in the current patch 2.04.
I know that the developers need to make some changes sometimes, to keep the game interesting, but I really don’t understand why would they buff Goliath. Goliath was one of the top monsters since the game was released, and currently he is a pub destroyer. He is kinda difficult to play against in normal hunts when you are playing solo or even with a friend or two. You can only beat him now if you have really good teammates who know what they are doing, but that it rarely the case. Ever since the new patch came out I play mostly vs Goliaths and I can’t come up on top with a win vs him. Now when he hits Stage 2 the Hard Mode is on, On Stage 3 you can’t really win because his damage output is just insane no matter how low his health got. I know that it’s not easy to play the monster, but now it’s kinda impossible to play against Goliath.
Up next I want to discuss the new feature that has been added to the game and that is matchmaking by skill not by rank. I find it really annoying that I can’t see the rank of other players that I’m playing with. And the skill matchmaking needs some much needed improvement. For example I played vs a monster main player that was a high level with a monster he currently played, and on my team there was a player that just had 6 hours of evolve gameplay, while I have around 60 hours of gameplay. The matchmaking needs some improvement ASAP.
Next thing I want to talk about are some bugs that I occured in the game. Me and my friend noticed a bug that we started to experience in this current patch 2.04. Its a sound/audio bug. We were playing Evolve when all of a sudden we heard a loud crack/bang in our headseats and then the sound from the game completely dissappeared. We tried restarting the game and the bug dissappeared just for a little while, it got back a soon as we started another hunt. It is nearly impossible to play this game without sound. We really don’t know what is the issue but we hope that this gets fixed soon.
For the last thing I would love that they put back the old dropships. The new dropship feature is just kinda stupid for me. For example a monster kills you and while there is a good chance that you get revived by your teammate, you just get teleported back to the dropship, and you lose some valuable time, and in that time you could’ve damage the monster for a bit more or heal up or shield up your teammates. That feature really gives the upperhand to the monster. I know that this happens in earlygame mostly but it’s still very annoying.
- Goliath needs a nerf (since most of the hunters got nerfed, few underplayed got buffs)
- Matchmaking needs adjustments
- Player ranks should be visible to you and others
- Fix the sound/audio bug
- Put back old dropships or make a few adjustments to them
I hope that this post was interesting and I’d like to hear your opinions, thoughts and minds about this post in the comments and I also hope that the developers see this!
