At the risk of being flamed hard I’m yet to find any aspect of the game, hunter or monster to be “OP”.
An organised, balanced team of like minded individuals stratagizing to a common goal is a formidable weapon.
An able, thinking well versed/experienced monster is a formidable weapon.
A match between the two is a joy to behold and I hope the monster often says “fair play, good game” as often as my small team does when we come up against somebody who utilises their monster well and beats us.
Every strategy has a counter. For example, My Teams’ Griff/Bucket tactic pressures Kiting wraith/kraken to an extreme that we can get a kill within 7 minutes.
this game’s high end is all about punishing tactical mistakes.
What is varying massively across the player base is skill. Some people are better than others. some people have played more than others. some people know the maps or the hunters or the monsters better than others. The only barrier to learning is the palyers available time to play and sadly there is nothing TRS or 2K can do about that.
oh as a final note… Tier 3 doesn’t mean better than Tier 1. Pick a Team that compliments each other and the preferences of the players themselves.
