Everyone knows that this game isn’t perfect. Everyone knows that sometimes the balancing between hunters and monsters is off. The Evolve Forums are an excellent place to discuss your opinions on this. I don’t want to hear about it while I’m playing a game. I’m tired of the hunter players who scream “OP” every time they loose a match. I prefer to play as a hunter when online now simply because I feel every victory I have as a monster is immediately discredited and turned into a debate about how I’m capitalizing on a broken system. I’ve been yelled at for playing Wraith, Kraken and even Goliath. If all the monsters are broken, who am I supposed to play?
I also am bothered when I’m on the hunters team and I hear a fellow hunter complaining about OP monsters. Go to the forums with it. Saying the monster is broken not only discredits the victories of the monster, but the victories of the hunters as well. When I’m beaten by a monster, I’m frustrated at myself for not doing better. This helps me improve my game. I’m not going to discredit the player by saying he’s taking advantage of a broken system.
My final point of contention is this; Stop barking demands at other players. I’ve played with new players. I once was a new player myself. Some players aren’t good. Sometimes that can effect you negatively. If you are aggressive and demanding of these players, they are going to defy you on principle. Please try to be constructive. When I hear a more adapt player barking at a less experienced player, I get upset myself. This stops being a game and becomes a shouting match. I’m not saying you should hold your tongue, just try and be nice to these people. They aren’t bad at the game intentionally. If you handle the situation properly, they may even grow as players.
Come on guys, this is a game. Stop being so negative while playing. If it’s really that misserable of an experience for you, please stop playing so the rest of us can enjoy the game.
