Regardless of what your opinions are of TotalBiscuit, watching his latest video made me think of a few things:
If you can’t view the video for whatever reason, TB explains that Evolve has been completely redone in terms of it’s complexity, so the Monster can fairly fight the Hunters at Stage 1, anyone can use the Dome to trap the Monster and the maps were completely redesigned, so it wasn’t made into a “tedious game of hide and seek”.
This of course brings up a fair question: If Battleborn was to go F2P, would GBX have to redesign the game in order to make it more accessible? Was one of the things that turned a lot of people off playing this game because it was “too complex”? Personally, I don’t think it’s that complex, in fact, that’s one of the reasons I love playing this game, but we remaining few playing might be the minority in that, and when you want to revive a game, you have to think about the larger audience.
I personally hope they don’t dumb it down too much if they do choose to do that, but i wouldn’t be too surprised if some things got changed or scrapped.
