Evac is really cool, but oh man, some match modes just feel heavily tilted towards the hunters.
Nest mode, for one, is heavily catered to the hunters seeing as there’s no penalty for the hunters for having one teammate stay away from the fight! Normally that’s a free three kills and feeding time, but when the enemy team ALWAYS runs Bucket, Hyde, and Laz, leaving any of them up means that you have to defend since they can individually shred any egg they want before you can get to it (or rez the whole team). I’ve played several matches where I had at least one tick on each hunter and absolutely no damage to me, and they were still able to just focus the eggs so quickly that I couldn’t deal with it. The sustained damage that Hyde and Bucket bring to the fight on a stationary target is just too damn much.
Defend mode is also heavily catered to the hunters, since the generator areas are very open and make for easy shots on the monster, and THE HUNTERS GET TO RESPAWN WITH NO TICKS! Forget the terrain thing. It’s a stage 3 monster; the hunters need the help, but why is the whole permanent damage thing that this game is about is thrown out the window for the hunter team? Once again, all they have to do is keep one ally alive and they get a huge advantage by being full health again while it took me that 2 minutes to get one objective (assuming they haven’t kited me around, running down the respawn timer after their first downed ally). Look, the whole defend idea would be awesome, if this “permanent damage” thing wasn’t thrown out.
BTW, yes, they were running a Laz, but I made absolutely sure I killed him dead first. All the way dead. There’s no chance he got back up without any ticks naturally.
Anyone else feel this way, or have any tips for dealing with Hyde and Bucket in Nest mode? Any tips for winning defend mode as the monster if the enemy team is capable of respawning without damage?
EDIT: I figured out my problem: I was trying to play as Goliath in Defend. I guess if the hunters got the turret defenses, you play Kraken or lose. Good to know.
