The planet scanner and map reworks ( aka killing all the vegetation ) are ways how the game is supposed to be noob friendlier . The problem is : this killed stealth .
even if you just kept one of those ( probably the map changes ) or drastically nerf the scanner stealth is an option again ,but atm except for a pounce you dont even press crouch anymore .
No stealth sucks because MANY PEOPLE LIKED IT, it is and (should) always be a part of hunting and this is a bad addition to the monster nerfs ( less time and wildfire + hunter buffs. )
If stealth stays dead how it is right now I quit.
