The problem with this "hunter" attitude is the people who love it most wind up being dead weight to their team when there is no opening for such maneuvers. And sometimes you have to create your own opening, which means being a decent, direct, upfront player first and foremost. (1) Let's be honest -- most people who default to "hunter" do so because they simply cannot handle direct engagements. Most of the time, it's a physical fitness issue.
And even if there is an opening, by the numbers, if you're not engaged with an opponent, then you just put your team down by 1 player for that duration. In some instances, that's enough to lose the game. And sadly, most of the time, "hunter" types don't care about their team. They fancy themselves hunters and just like hunting for the sake of hunting.
Nevertheless, step 1 for successful hunting is to pick a team good enough to tolerate you hanging them out to dry for possibly a large portion of the game.
But if you could do that, then why not just join your team in the direct engagement and outright stomp the other team?
Return to point 1: a hunter is born.
He posts videos of himself on Youtube never leaving the furthest back bunker. |
Even when playing against rental noobs, he is immobilized.
Logic and reason are anathema to him; but this does not deter him from prattling on.
He is the most interesting player in the world.
