First off, i need to explain my complete and utter hatred of elites. I wasn't one of the people in H3 who hated them because "headshots didnt count" i got over that quite quickly.
I hated them because they looked so stupid and annoying. I couldn't take anyone seriously if they were an elite.
My view hasn't entirely changed on elites, and i certainly wouldn't choose to be one. But they do look better in reach, and they do add something different.
On this note, i'd like to express my enjoyment of the Elite Slayer gametype. I have only played it on Haemorrhage, so couldn't give an opinion on smaller maps. But i love it so much.
Because it is just pure unadulterated fun. Mainly i think because there are no OP vehicles/weapons. That leaves the playing field very open.
When i first starting playing H3, covies was a big feature in BTB. I was extremely bad back then, and played the game just because it was fun. No trying hard to win, just having fun doing weird stuff.
I think this is what Elite slayer brings back. There are like 10 ghosts on the maps, 2 revenants and 1 wraith.
Team of ghosts beats everything. Revenant beats ghost, wraith beats revenant. It just seems equal.
Instead of a sniper, you get a beam-thingy. Which is powerful enough to be classed as a power weapon, but not over-the-top like the sniper is.
And to balance out the fact that there are now so many vehicles, everyone spawns with a PP. Although i think that might be a little over the top. I'd rather one of the classes was secondry PP, so not everyone had it. But it's not too bad.
I know there is no warthog, but what do you guys think?
Don't take life too seriously, or you'll never get out alive
