Hello rebellion!!! love the game! Am enjoying it completely, but here are my major questions/ concerns:
-Would you guys ever be willing to consider adding private matches, or "Player" custom matches where people can change options for matches to their liking? For example: turn off marine motion tracker, lengthen predator hunt time limit, turn off weapons, turn off stealth kills etc... things like that? There are a billion options us players would love to explore, and other franchises (not to bash yours, AVP is legendary) have very much benefited from player customization.
-Would it be difficult to add an option to customize controls to the players liking? currently I am not a fan of the default control setups (I play xbox) for example
: id like to be able to assign jump to the right stick press for alien. it would make movement much smoother.
-Would it be possible to add an option to assign ALL Alien wall walking to the right trigger by either holding it, or pressing it to toggle it on/off? as an option in the menu screen perhaps? currently there is no way NOT to crawl down a ledge as opposed to simply walking off of an edge.
-Another side related question to Alien wall walking; How did you guys land on the current setup for the Alien wall walking? It truly very difficult to navigate when there is no way not to crawl down ledges without jumping
, and the "transition" button has a slight delay on it when walking up a wall from the ground. The new setup seems clunky-er and harder to learn, and the most surprising part is that the older versions seemed less complicated, smoother, and more efficient (at least in my opinion, as well as many around the forums as well as many professional reviews). Im wondering why the change?
-This is more an opinion than a question, but id really really really really
like to see the smartgun removed from predator hunt. personally it single handedly ruins the whole tactical/hunt/strategy aspect of being the predator. The time limit combined with the multiple marines vs one predator seem sufficient enough as a handicap. Predator hunt matches that Ive played usually end up being extremely low scoring matches. Again, any chance at least being able to at least adjust certain aspects of gameplay in player matches/ private matches?
-For survivor, Id like to cast my vote for some larger maps that have multiple rooms, corridors, and places for strategy. Is there a specific gameplay related reason as to why the survivor maps are so small/ closed in? Or is there a distinct possibility that we may see some more expansive maps in the future? Also, why arent there any ranked survivor matches? gears of war 2 eventually added XP rewarding for survivor. Any chance of that here?
-I realize your not talking about balancing quite yet, so Id just like to add my two cents for the record: Predator melee needs to be reduced/slowed with an added focus on weaponry. I think he should at least be able to regenerate energy at least slightly, especially in team death match modes where predators get dominated alot. Predator disc needs a cooldown time between uses. I also feel that the predator could benefit from the taunt/voice recorder thing in predator hunt. smartgun needs to be removed from predator hunt. Alien tail attack from the ceiling needs either a charge time or a reduction in strength. Marine needs flares in MP (though Im sure you kept them out for a reason).
-Finally, Id like to know if there are solid plans for a sequel (fingers crossed!!!!) at this point, or are Sega and Rebellion waiting on the outcome of the current AVP?
and congrats on an awesome game!
