So for some reason I have had very unfortunate luck and continually run into monsters that are utter cowards while playing in Hunt 2.0. By this i mean that they refuse, utterly refuse, to fight until Stage 3 at the relay. Even at Stage 3 they usually refuse to fight. Ive had domes where the monster is Stage 3 with full armor and not a single hunter is attacked. It just ran around taking armor damage and then spent 6-7 minutes apparently trying to find a new perk. No really. we won due to time running out. It sucked.
You may be thinking, “but reaching Stage 3 is the entire point.” WRONG!!! the point is to defeat/kill the hunters. Destroying the relay is an alternate win condition for hunters that run and hide.
Honestly I feel that a prerequisite for evolving to Stage 3 should be that Hunters took a certain amount of damage(not downs because some medics are REALLY good). This means that monsters must attempt to fight the hunters at least slightly at Stage 2. This flee at all costs until Stage 3 and then some is NOT FUN. Stage 2 monsters are not weak. Maybe not as powerful as Stage 3 but certainly not weak.
I am very happy that it is easier to dome monsters now but there still needs to be a reason for monsters to fight hunters currently because I guess there isn’t.
Maybe have a seven minute match timer that pauses during fights. exactly like the final timer. Force monsters to fight.
Im desperate and angry
