New map, Which is good. I Havent seen it yet but as I suspected its another jungle map. Nothing bad to say about this though. Im excited about the verticality proposed. We will see.
Sigh. As Shifo said, “Fireteam Hunting Grounds”. This is, hands down the worst possible outcome. Im kind of disappointed that this is what they have been working on. Not only is this likely to completely screw the queue times again, but its also a huge leap away from the name of the game “PREDATOR” which is highly annoying as someone whos been here since day one.
HOWEVER, its possible that this is a test bed for the same mode but with predator hunting the fireteams. This is likely going to be balanced over the next few months, and then predator will be let in on the fun, which im all for. But we really needed to get predator in there out of the box I think. Still, who knows.
about time lol
This is gonna make @Fire happy
Last time a change was made to cloak, it really only made things worse, not better. So while intent is good, In practice it might be worse. Im skeptical, but we will see.
@Courier Im gonna need some specification on this, but does this mean that alpha is no longer a clone of hunter, but rather its own class? Or were all hunter classes changed in the same way?
I think this is good. But I need to see it in practice.
interesting. Not good or bad but scout is already pretty damn strong, so this should be interesting.
Overall, This was the update we were all kinda waiting on. This needed to be the update that fixed a lot of things and brought something fresh. I cant say it didnt fix some core issues or bring something fresh, it certainly has. But like with a lot of the design doctrine behind this game, I feel that it is extremely misguided and I imagine im not alone in my feelings on how disappointing this update is at face value. This update was very make or break for a lot of people, and I think its gonna be a break for a majority of the playerbase. I just hope this isnt gonna be the killing blow for this game. The IP deserves better.
I just need to say that this update speaks to how little our feedback beyond bug fixes and bitching about nerfs really matters. The devs are gonna make the game that they (or sony) want them to make and it doesnt matter at all what we want, or the IP deserves. This is really a loogie to the face straight from the devs. It feels like a fuck you, thanks for the money. I dont know what the hell is going on at illfonic. I dont know if its illfonic themselves or sony, but you guys need to stop what you are doing. Whatever it is, stop it, Go watch the movies. Read about a days worth or so of forum posts. Figure out what the fuck you are doing because this isnt a predator game. Its really disgusting seeing the predator name slapped on this game. Because despite its actually really good predator graphics and customizations, it fails at every single level to capture the heart of the franchise in any conceivable way. I watched the hardcore fans mass exodus off this game in the first two months, But I held out hope. I hoped you guys would get your shit together but you havent. And now im preparing to watch another mass exodus of the more casual predator fans because you have killed almost all interest in this game. I dont know how you are gonna come back from this, this feels like the nail in the coffin. I hope it isnt but honestly its what this game deserves, and what your wallets deserve. Im just saddened to see this happen.
For those who enjoy this update, Have fun. Truly, Im glad you can enjoy it. But its not predator. Not anymore. And it was the first game we have gotten in a long time to enjoy the franchise. But it has at every turn tried not to appeal to predator fans and be true to itself, but whore itself out to the playerbases from games like cod. Its disappointing, and while I respect your enjoyment, I hope you can understand the distaste everyone has.
Just wanted to put this in here so it doesnt get lost in replies. This changes my opinions on the new mode drastically, as well as my rant. Will edit again when I play it. For future reference OKH and Courier, Please explain that better for new modes XD Yall made it sound like just straight out cod match.
