Seriously. Now we have the omnipresent announcer telling people how to use their characters as well as cartoony doodles of the monsters to convey what the friggin’ hell the player is supposed to do? Am I the only one who gives a damn anymore?
This game isn’t an arena shooter. An announcer has no place here. With each patch the immersion of Evolve is thrown in the trash and it honestly is disgusting to me. This once dark, challenging game has now become a game of tag with an overgrown BeanieBaby blasting bright colors in your face.
You need to change the name of the Mode Hunt to Chase. You are lying to everyone calling it hunt. As tedious as it was, in Legacy Evolve you hunted, calling it that still is idiotic and misleading. You don’t hunt in Evolve Stage 2, you shoot a fish in a barrel; a fish whose location you always know.
@TRS I implore you start injecting the fun back into this game and the dark ambience this game used to have. You had a second try at making Evolve great and you have failed completely. I don’t mean the F2P model, I’m talking about the bludgeoning you are giving your own game. How can you honestly make all these changes and think they are good? Flat ugly visual effects, barely anything in the environment reacts to your presence (plant debris and bush debris as in Legacy*) the out of place Announcer practically holds your hand throughout the entire game, bright maps and extremely colorful beams of light that scream “HERE IS A BUFF YOU MORON!”. Seriously what is wrong with you guys? I fell in LOVE with this game on release and religiously played it regardless of numerous bugs, exploits, and downright unfair balance. I’ve stuck by through it all along with many other people who loved Evolve and this is what we get as thanks?
Everytime I see an update come through I get high hopes that you guys will do right by this game and give back some of the creep, some of the actual HUNTING, and visuals that don’t look like they belong in a Source mod and I am always disappointed beyond belief to be met with more bright colors, more dumbed down visual effects, and gameplay so streamlined there is no satisfaction in it anymore.
What happened to the dropship conversations?
What happened to the mystery and anticipation of knowing what you are going up against, only to find out what your enemy is when you see it’s tracks?
What happened to the idea that us players are not complete idiots in need of an Announcer breathing down our neck and constant in-game tutorials and notifications?
It is fitting you call this Evolve Stage 2, because like the monsters when they reach Stage 2, Evolve has become nothing more than a bigger target to fire upon.
Shame on you @TRS
