Hunters have been proclaimed the victors of Evolve's alpha

Evolve alpha

The war between monster and hunter in Turtle Rock’s Evolve is over, and has been since November 4th, which has given the studio enough time to delve into the records to find out which side won the war, at least in the alpha. 

Hunters have been proclaimed the champions, by almost 200,000 victories. 

Evolve’s infographic shows that hunters claimed victory 753,414 times, compared to the monster’s 574,079 times. This is probably a bad outcome, as I can’t help but shake the feeling that the hunters are the bad guys here, travelling to an alien world to murder a big animal. 

Out of all the classes, the infographic reveals that the assault class was the most popular, which makes sense as it’s also the most straightforward - though it’s not without its interesting quirks. Close behind in popularity is the poor, victimised monster. 

The matches I played varied a lot when it came to length. In a group of hunters, I witnessed a victory in less than five minutes, with us trapping the monster between buildings, where we were able to assault it from above. Others became long, drawn out chases through the jungle punctuated with moments of quiet where we tried to get a bead on our quarry. 

Apparently the longest match was 40 minutes long, and it must have involved a lot of running around. 

Did any of you lovely lot get a chance to take Evolve for a spin? 

Cheers, Shack News

I played about 15 matches in the Evolve alpha, and I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking that the monster was losing more.

It seems to me that the monster is at a ridiculous disadvantage starting out, I wasn't really able to progress much before the hunters found me and I had a real hard time getting away from them.

This may be due to me not knowing how to play the game that well, but it does seem to favor the hunters more, because it's tough to get away from them and killing and eating things can attract carrion, which puts a big red "OMFG THE MONSTER IS OVER HERE" icon on the HUD.

Hopefully they make some improvements.

Yeah, I've followed this game and definitely think that the Monster needs some more buffs.

Every single time I played the monster I kicked ass! Nothing could stop when I found my groove.

Although I did "Lose" 1 match I handed each and every hunter their ass on a silver plate before the final shot finished me off from the last player, it basically felt like a win for me.
