Otomaru Posted July 30, 2014 Share Posted July 30, 2014 Prior to U14 the infested already had energy syphoning aura, a strike that deletes your energy, toxic aura, knockdowns and their biggest strength was their numbers. If you're a new player i imagine you don't do high lvl missions or epic endless type missions and the new changes might be ok. But if i encounter infested it's a defense or survival mission. I thought that increasing their numbers, defense and damage every wave or 5 min was a good way to add difficulty, but now it's ridiculous. The new challenges are outweighed by frustration. The new ancients start to come pretty soon and their numbers grow rapidly. 2 or 3 grapples from every direction every few sec and as the time goes the grapples get only more frequent - you end up spending a lot of time scraping the ground. While you're cruising on your back, add one, few or all of these: -free damage -"F~ your abilities" strike from disruptor at the end -stagger from kamikaze which chains in even more free damage -Toxic aura -Toxin AoE from osprey -Parasitic Eximus -Another knockdown or grapple +the new ancient aura that decreases your damage dealt by a lot which makes it easy for them to swarm you. Remember that this is not a 3th wave or min scenario, free damage from the numbers they are in and damage increasement means you're pretty much "wasted". You may dodge most of the grapples, but not all. The difficulty is way too exponentially steep. I loved this game cause i could chose multiple ways how to slay my... victims. It was already getting dissatisfying to get denied from you abilaties. But the new changes are making Rhino's Iron Skin and ranged weapons absolite, forcing less and less ways how to enjoy the game. I play games for entertainment, not frustration. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
