She turns every hunt into easy-mode for the hunters. Since the T4 hunter release, I’ve seen countless Sunny. One match it was Cabot, and it was actually a fair match again. Monster is no longer a fun option to play. Once you are spotted in hunt, you lost. She can boost a trapper up or anyone to harass you to prevent the monster from recovering as monster is prohibited from eating if he takes any damage. Pounce damage is so low that the lone hunter that got boosted up isn’t even downed by the time the rest of the team arrives. That’s assuming the boosted hunter is dumb enough to be that close to the monster and on foot.
Sunny doesn’t really have any weaknesses, and the drone is absurd. “just kill it” you say. Well that takes a valuable skill usage (it has way yo much health for its own good) and the second it goes down, a new one is already been thrown. The drone soaking damage and skills for the hunter team is a very VERY strong mechanic.
Sunny completely trivializes hank. The Drone is a mini-super hank that always targets correctly, has a lot of bettery, a lot of health, virtually no cooldown, and wins fights on its own. You really dont need hanks range on shield. Drone is infinitely better than a hank.
Basically it’s this: with sunny around, hunters don’t even need to try hard to win. Let alone in the different evac modes. Sunny in Defense wins games. There isn’t even a need or want of a ninja bucket for Eggs. She makes the group basically invulnerable such that they can just rush along, and if the monster and a minion appears… so much the faster to just kill the monster and win! Caira + Sunny = monster can’t play and early or mid game.
Sunny trivializes the hunter game, and makes monsters a miserable experience as you can’t escape hunters, and you definitely can’t engage the hunters. Monster already can get wildlife buffs if he’s getting hurt. He cant hatch an egg if hes getting hurt. he cant focus a Hunt generator if hes getting hurt… the monster isn’t allowed to PTFO. Wtf is up with that? And now sunny makes combat just as undesirable.
