Just wanted to discuss a few things with the team/community, This would be witnessed by the community manager hopefully!
I found out about evolve before the alpha and was keeping up to date with the progress of the game, I managed to play my first match of evolve at PAX AUS 2014. After my successful win as Kraken for the one match I was able to get into I was immediately satisfied this game would deliver what I was looking for… I picked up a few codes from the stand for myself and a few buddies, then began the wait for the Alpha!
The alpha was a ball! Had a swell time and really got to play around with the game and tried to flesh out the mechanics as much as I could before it ended. Was good to see a different game coming through.
Now recently the Beta had ended. Being in AUS I allocated as much time as I was able too for the duration. Woke up at 3.30 AM and was up and thrashing the game as soon as it came online at 5am. Yes AM… I’m in Melbourne Australia…
I clocked up a total of 23 Hours during the beta, I spent every second of the game not only competing but playing around and stressing different mechanics and meta.
Whilst the experience was allot of fun. I found there to be a few things that were imbalanced, some making no sense. I do understand professionals don’t want to hear a random make this kind of statement. And I wont elaborate on it here as it isn’t my reason for writing this!!!
I gamed hard and managed by the end of the Beta +20 minute encore to achieve #1 in Global, Goliath and Kraken!
Here are some links to the three leader boards once the encore ended.
I was pretty stoked… Especially with the ratios…
It was a little disappointing that the leader boards were not featured to the community where as other games featured their beta leader boards and even showed an interest in the top players for their opinion on the game balance etc.
This is no big deal!
As of an hour ago I found out a bloke by the name of Mr_Strategio is actually one of the Game Testers/Dev team, I had a few games with him as hunters and we got along quite well. Cool guy, Was involved with me trying to help and assist new players about the game. Hats off to you buddy.
I am curious on an opportunity to compete with your dev team. I found out that a streamer had a shot with them and unfortunately did not come out on top I think I have a chance… Would be a great experience and I believe great for your end as the community could tune in and feel more connected… Plus who doesn’t like to be challenged?
I’m going to end it here… This is way longer than I expected hahah, All the best guys. Since the beta i’m allover the pre-order. For anyone at all feel free to ask me anything or everything. Ill keep in touch with this thread.
Thanks for the read. Hope to hear from you.
All the best.
