If a hunter went down, it would make sense kayfabe/lore wise why the dome needs to be taken down.
What was the kayfabe/lore story behind domes being taken down as soon as x amount of damage was done to the monster?
Maybe the monsters disrupt the dome with the Patterson equation when they get hurt since they are also able to use it.
But if the dome deactivates itself from downed hunters, maybe because it’s programmed as an emergency system to avoid more casualties.
Yeah that’s my logical thought behind why it goes down if a hunter is downed to prevent the rest of the team from getting wiped so they can run away.
In one of the tutorials it said that the dome can’t tell the difference between the monsters health and the hunters health. Thus going down when either side takes enough damage.
That kinda makes sense.
Each hunter carries a generator that helps power the dome. If a hunter goes down, it disrupts the domes power distribution. Making it unstable.
