Hello Community and devs. First off let me say that I preordered Evolve the moment it was revealed on Gameinformer (if I recall correctly the gameinformer one was the reveal), then recently I canceled my preorder. . . and preordered the Monster Race Edition! I enjoyed this game in The Big Alpha and still do greatly.
What I wanted to post about was;
- People in pubs seem to not understand that when I cloak to come and revive them, THEY NEED TO STOP SHOOTING. No matter how many times I say this on mic and direct it to the specific hunter that is incapacitated, type it, say and type it before matches begin etc, people seem to just not get it. I started telling people before games that if I cloak and say I am and am coming to heal you, please stop shooting and you continue to shoot, I will leave you, I will not cause 2 deaths and probably even more, because of this.
This I think needs to be addressed somehow, but I am not sure how, as apparently telling people the mechanics of the game leads to nothing I assume that the more I level up(currently 25 or so), (hopefully) the better the players and hopefully, this is a non-issue there.
- Assaults need to stop playing extremely passively. I have seen this multiple times where an assault player just stands back the whole time, expecting the medic or support to do dmg, heal, tank etc all at the same time.
I understand that I am talking about pubs where things like this are inevitable and I also understand that most of these issues will probably be less common to find with time as more players get used to the game, but then again I have played Dota for around 6 years or so and . . yeah
Also this has been said before, but I will say it anyway as it is very important; offer all the other game modes in Skirmish. I think it is obvious that this is some sort of a mistake made before the game was released.
Last I just wanted to address the Role Preference, I personally think that the system in place, which I think has not changed since The Big Alpha, needs some fixes. I say this as I am currently trying to Elite Medics(Val, then Laz, then Caira), Support (Cabot, then Hank), Parnell, Markov, then the rest, these are my favourite hunters in the game so far and I find them the most fun to play as (I usually enjoy Supports and medics in games as they are usually extremely fun to play as and are the backbone of most teams) I usually have my roles as the following: Medic > Support > Assault > Trapper > Monster, Med and support swap every now and then. I obviously like playing hunters than I do monsters (for now), however I never exit a game when I am placed as a monster or so, my issue is that I got placed in more games as the Monster then I was placed as the Assault and the Trapper (yes, probably combined). Now when I thought about it, It might be that a lot of other players have the monster as last as well and therefore the game needs to adjust etc. I just find it strange that I get more monster games then Assault and Trapper which are a priority over the monster.
