It is a totally dead game mode because it is horribly horribly unfun. Once every three months I think to myself “This mode was great in GMOD Tower. People are just mad it’s difficult. I’ll find a full server through the browser and play some.”
And at times of high traffic I can find one, and then I play, and I realize how wrong I was. This is not the game that I played in GMOD Tower. It’s bad. It’s reaaal bad.
I have never seen the Chimera win in a full server. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen it kill more than 2 crusaders. The original was definitely not like this. The animation timing is fucked up real bad and the chimera is made totally useless every time it performs an action, making playing as it impossible so long as anyone else in the match understands the game even slightly.
Why did they waste all that time making cosmetics for a game that doesn’t even work? Make the game fun first! Not to mention what a waste it is that what is far and away the best looking mode in the game is far and away the worst one. I get that the artists probably aren’t the people altering the game rules, but one is completely invalidated by the other. And since the majority of the problems is just that the Chimera is too slow, it shouldn’t even be that hard a fix. At least start throwing changes at the wall so I can have the potential to have fun in this mode. Anything would be better than what we’ve got, but it’s laid untouched for years.
