So think back when tier 4 hunters and broken hill maps came out. All the tier 4 hunters seemed overpowered and many still believe sunny and torvald are. All these characters have had major nerfs after release to make them more balanced. Now why were they so unbalanced to begin with well I think it was more to sell them rather than a mistake in development. If a character comes out and seems better than the rest than it encourages the player to purchase them. The broken hill maps were designed around behemoth to give him an edge that way you think he is the best monster when really it is just purposeful design. Broken hill foundry has those multiple floors in the center which for gobbie are no problem he scans through all of it but daisy has a really hard time traversing up and down. The new maps also made orbital and dust tag limited which again made sunny look like someone you needed.
Now Kala is coming out and I’m worried she will be super overpowered or at least extremely frustrating for the monster. I think the teleport gates seem like something that will be easy to abuse especially if you just wanna run out the clock on the monster. Says there is two hunters left and the monster starts beating on the relay. They can shoot him off and if he or she decides to go in the direction of the shot the hunters can just teleport a mile away and waste the time. I also think the armor piercing beam will really punish monster in this scenario since again do a little guaranteed health damage then every one teleport to god knows where and repeat.
Now yes it is to early to say if the teleport gates and armor beam thing will be as bad as this. However given that when tier 4 came out and were made superior just to sell them I think she will be purposefully made this way so people buy her. I mean most people I talk to think sunny is the best support which if all TRS is thinking of is sales then making Kala potentially better than even her will cause problems.
This is pure speculation and I do enjoy evolve but I don’t trust the devs that much. The game was buggy as fuck on launch and still suffers many bugs. They sold a ton of dlc saying all maps would be free to keep player base together but we have only got two hunt maps which are arguably the worst in the game.
Yes we got adaptations and I like those but they aren’t enough to make me overlook the bugs, crashes, bad design and just greed.
Sorry for the long post and for being so negative. Again this is just speculation and my opinion. I would love to hear other peoples thoughts but keep a open mind please. Remember you can like something and still acknowledge it’s faults.
